Will Yang - brand director, Oppo India, told Economic Times, "We have an investor department in China, and they look for mobile internet start-ups and companies to invest in. It is managed at the group level. We are looking for similar companies or start-ups in India."

It looks like, the company is following the steps taken by Micromax and Xiaomi who invested in the Indian mobile internet companies to offer services and gain some presence in the country. Though it managed to secure 4th position by shipments having 10% market share in the first quarter, they are still trying to offer some more localized products and services in our market.

To recall, the market share was lead by Samsung with 26%, according to Counter Research. Yang adds, "We aim to achieve either no 1 or No 2 position in India. Our aim is to compete with Samsung and no other brands."

He says that Oppo will have at least one smartphone in each price category, except for the sub-Rs 10,000 price list. "As a strategy, we would probably stop entry level. As for positioning of the brand even in China, we focus on mid and premium segments. Entry-level is not our focus area as it provides less user experience," he adds.
