OPPO Vice President Intelligent Mobile Devices Bobee Liu says OPPO will soon debut its first smart watch, OPPO Watch, as well as a new health platform in 2020. OPPO also announced three initiatives to co-build a new intelligent service ecosystem with developers and partners worldwide at its recent conference in Beijing, China.
The recent OPPO Developer Conference in Beijing last month unveiled a range of initiatives to co-build a new intelligent service ecosystem with developers and partners. The three new initiatives announced at the conference include the enhanced developer support program Gravity Plan 2.0, for which OPPO says it will allocate SGD 193.5 million in 2020; the Five System-level Capability Exposure Engines and thirdly, the IoT Enablement Plan.
In the past year, OPPO claims to have made progress in building a new ecosystem, boasting more than 320 million monthly active users globally on its ColorOS operating system and accumulating a substantial number of users across its applications, services, and content ecosystem.
To date, OPPO claims more than 120,000 developers have joined the OPPO open platform where its open capability service has been used more than 3 billion times per day.
At the 2018 Developer Conference, OPPO officially launched its Gravity Plan, an RMB 1 billion program to support outstanding developers worldwide. Since then, OPPO claims the plan has provided resources for more than 2,000 applications, resulting in 9.2 billion impressions and more than 180 million downloads.
According to OPPO Internet Services Vice President Henry Duan, with the help of ColorOS, the Gravity Plan 2.0 will build on last year’s efforts to provide sustained and all-round support to partners in the four major fields of applications, services, content and global development.
Enabling Multi-scenario Convergent Experiences by launching Five System-level Capability Exposure Engines
In order to enable developers to connect to OPPO’s system-level capability more smoothly and quickly, and continue to deliver a better user experience, OPPO officially launched its Five System-level Capability Exposure Engines, which include Hyper Boost, Link Boost, CameraUnit, MediaUnit, and ARUnit capabilities.
According to OPPO Vice President Software Engineering Andy Wu, this will improve overall user experiences alongside developers and partners.
“With the launch of the Five System-level Capability Exposure Engines, OPPO will help developers leverage creativity, explore scenarios, maximize value and build a world of intelligent connectivity in which reality and the virtual realm integrate, says Wu.
IoT Enablement Plan and HeyThings IoT service platform to accelerate convergence of technology and service
Anticipating the integration and convergence of things to be the future, OPPO also announced its IoT Enablement Plan, will be a capacity opening program aimed at opening OPPO’s HeyThings IoT protocol, HeyThings IoT service platform and audio connectivity protocol for IoT partners.
The newlyupgraded HeyThings IoT service platform is expected to be deployed through OPPO’s open platform in Q1, 2020 while the first phase of the audio connectivity protocol is expected to be in service in June 2020.
OPPO Vice President Intelligent Mobile Devices Bobee Liu also revealed that OPPO will soon debut its first smart watch, OPPO Watch, as well as a health platform, which he says will be positioned as a strategic device that OPPO will use to create a more robust ecosystem with its partners.
