We have heard a few smartphone manufacturers who are much interested in car business. The likes of Xiaomi, Oppo, Apple, and others have revealed their interest. Xiaomi has since announced that it will build its own-branded electric cars. Huawei said it’s not going to build cars but will make components for cars. Furthermore, the company sells some of the models that it jointly builds.
According to recent reports, Oppo Guangdong Mobile Communications Co. Ltd. recently applied for the registration of the â€œOCARâ€ trademark. The classification of the trademark is â€œscientific instrumentâ€. The current trademark status is awaiting substantive examination. Oppo Group is already preparing for car-making matters. Founder Chen Mingyong led a team to investigate, and has already found out and investigated the resources and talents of the industry chain.
According to reports, â€œOppoÂ is indeed investigating, understanding, and doing some pre-research, but it has not yet formally established the project for the time beingâ€.
OppoÂ officials also responded that theÂ company has always had a layout in terms of car-machine interconnection, including the expansion of the flash charging ecology to the automotive field.
At present, there is not much information on the upcoming Oppo electric car. However, with this trademark application, the company is serious about entering the electric car business.
