Ever since OPPO INNO DAY started in 2019, the event has been considered as the precursor of the company’s roadmap. At the inaugural OPPO INNO DAY 2019, OPPO illustrated its integrated ecosystem of cutting-edge technologies, including AR Glasses, 5G CPE, and smartwatch. Last year, OPPO showcased three conceptual products, including a revolutionary rollable phone. For 2021, OPPO is digitalizing the launch event and exhibitions, transforming the conventional event into an entertaining and interactive world of virtual experiences,” said the company.
