Another brand that's good at hiding it's Chinese origins
Year Established: 2001
Headquarters: Guangdong, China
Parent: BBK Electronics, China
They say the world is filled with 70% water, and everywhere else you’ll find Oppo billboards. Oppo is a subsidiary of BBK Electronics Corporation – a Chinese conglomerate that also owns OnePlus, Vivo, and Realme. Although Oppo has joined the Make in India initiative by setting up an assembly unit in Noida, it’s still a Chinese company that has its headquarters in China. All its top executives are Chinese nationals and so are the major investors. In 2017, Oppo landed in a controversy when a senior official of the company allegedly tore apart the Indian national flag and put it in the dustbin.
Another true-blue Chinese company that’s trying hard to fit into the Indian consumer landscape. They have captured the market with over-advertising, heavy sponsorship deals and retail store dominance. So, if you are looking for a phone that’s not Chinese, stay away from Oppo.
