The first information that Oppo is going to enter the smart TV market appeared at the end of last year. In June, the manufacturer confirmed that the rumors are not groundless.
Now two Oppo TVs have been certified by the Chinese regulator 3C, which confirms in the lineup will be presented 55 and 65-inch models with a resolution of 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels). Since they have been certified, there is every reason to believe they will be on the market very soon.
In addition, the information about the upcoming release of the first Oppo TV has been officially confirmed by the company. Liu Bo, vice president of Oppo, has published the following statement:
The integration of everything is a great opportunity given us by time, and the Internet of Things is a new wave in this great opportunity. With the launch of smart bracelets and watches, we will soon release our first smart TV.
Liu Bo said that many people see smart TVs only as a replacement for traditional TVs. According to Oppo, many users’ TV needs were not met. Oppo is trying to spur users’ interest in smart TVs, which can play a key role in a smart home.
He also said in a letter that total sales of smartphones this year is expected to grow to 100 million units.
