To take on the ASUS-Flipkart collaboration, Chinese smartphone maker Oppo is all set to make a major announcement in collaboration with Amazon on May 1.
Earlier this month, Taiwanese PC hardware and smartphone brand ASUS made a big splash in the Indian market by announcing its partnership with Flipkart to launch the ZenFone Max Pro M1 in the country.
Flipkart had signed a Memorandum of Understanding for an exclusive partnership with ASUS. Under the partnership, the first smartphone that launched is ZenFone Max Pro with Snapdragon 636 on April 23, 2018.
The global e-commerce company is running a banner on its website, “A new partnership for the real me,” and also revealing that this is going to be an Amazon-exclusive announcement.
The listing page doesn’t clearly reveal what the announcement will include but it does say that it is going to be a “disruptor”. Listing also states that there is going to be a “powerful new brand” and a “a stylish new smartphone” — both of which are launching tomorrow.
OPPO, which managed to grab the third spot in the Indian smartphone market in the first quarter of 2018, plans to increase its market share in the country by launching a new brand to take on Xiaomi.
