Oppo in India: Leading smartphone brand Oppo’s team in India has started gearing towards marking its presence in the 5G sector in the country. The brand has announced that it would be setting up a 5G innovation lab in its research and development centre in Hyderabad, to aid in the development of the technologies in the 5G ecosystem so as to accelerate the rollout. Apart from that, the company would also establish three additional labs which would work on camera, performance and power and battery so that it can further help in innovation in these areas.
