The smartphone called Realme 5i was revealed today with a 6.5-inch display and a 5000mAh battery.

It is both ironic and comical that, despite all the advancements in mobile technology, sharing a simple photo between two phones can still be a hassle. Unless you're talking about AirDrop, but that only works between Apple devices. Despite using a single base platform, sharing between Android smartphones from different manufacturers is no easy task. That is why three of China's biggest smartphone makers have agreed to make it easy to share files with just three taps, at least when sharing between Xiaomi, OPPO, and vivo phones.

OPPO Reno 3 might not run on a Snapdragon 765, looks like a Redmi K20

OPPO made a big splash in the mobile industry during its OPPO INNO WEEK 2019 earlier this month, most of it focusing the company's ambitions to grow beyond smartphones. It did, of course, also tease its upcoming premium phone, the OPPO Reno 3 that's scheduled to debut next week. While OPPO did drop that the Reno 3 Pro would be running on Qualcomm's shiny new Snapdragon 765, it now seems that the non-Pro Reno 3 will be different from its sibling inside.

OPPO showcases mobile innovation for 2020 and beyond

It may be talking a lot about its vision to expand to new frontiers like networking, AR, and IoT but it's hard to deny that, at least for now, OPPO's main breadwinner is its smartphone business. 5G may be at the center of the company's plans but, until it becomes truly ubiquitous, consumers will experience the next-gen network standard primarily through smartphones. That's why at its inaugural INNO DAY 2019 event, OPPO not only reminded media about the things it has already done for the mobile industry, it also showed off the innovations that will be coming to its smartphones starting as early as this month.

OPPO Find X2 will put the focus on pixels

The OPPO Find X was the subject of headlines in the mobile world when it introduced one of the world's first phones to implement a popup camera, coming close to the Vivo NEX S. While OPPO continues to embrace that mechanism on its other phones, it is moving on to the next innovation for its next Find X flagship. It won't be innovation for innovation's sake, of course, and OPPO will be putting an emphasis on innovation that will delight most if not all people.

OPPO attempts to grow beyond smartphone boundaries with 5G, AR, and IoT

OPPO is a brand that is best known for its smartphones and it's going to be known for that for quite a while. That, however, isn't where the company sees itself in the next few years, or at least not the only things it wants to be known for. Just like any successful company, OPPO has big ambitions to grow its business beyond the very competitive and very congested smartphone market. It has a broader vision in mind and, like many new technologies, it will be enabled and empowered by 5G.
