When it comes to how we connect, Qualcomm is committed to bringing the future forward faster, particularly through wireless connectivity. On the heels of recent agreements with Chinese electronic giants like Lenovo, Xiaomi and Haier, we are pleased to have reached a new patent licensing agreement with Oppo.
The agreement enables Oppo to develop and manufacture mobile devices with 3G and 4G LTE capabilities in China. Currently, more than 100 Chinese companies have signed license agreements with Qualcomm that are consistent with terms of the rectification plan submitted by Qualcomm to, and accepted by the NDRC.
The new agreement provides another step forward for Qualcomm to expand its licensing business in China—and to continue developing the connectivity fabric of everything on a global scale.
“Qualcomm is very pleased to sign a license agreement with OPPO,” said Alex Rogers, senior vice president and general manager, Qualcomm Technology Licensing. “As an R&D engine for the industry, we are excited to see companies such as OPPO build on our patented technologies to drive further development and innovation and create compelling products."
According to IDC (July 2016), Oppo is the 2nd largest manufacturer of mobile electronic devices in China for the first half of 2016 and a top-10 global electronics player.
