The most successful smartphone manufacturer in China may soon start selling smartphones in US as well. Mostly known for blu-ray players in the US, Oppo is apparently preparing to expand their smartphone business to the US.

In the USA, Oppo is mostly known for their blu-ray players but in China the tech giant who belongs to BBK Electronics together with Vivo and OnePlus, is more successful selling smartphones. According to recent studies, 22.9 percent of all smartphones sold in China earlier this year were Oppo phones ranking Oppo as the number one smartphone manufacturer in China. Internationally, Oppo sold 25.3 million smartphones in the third quarter alone, ranking Oppo as number four behind Samsung, Apple and Huawei.

According to Taiwanese website Digitimes, who states information from industry sources, Oppo is preparing to expand their smartphone business to the US soon. Recently both Xiaomi and LeEco have also started selling smartphones in the US. Oppo's current smartphone lineup mostly consists of camera-centric phones, an area where Oppo has over 1,100 patents. Oppo's Selfie-Expert phones, the R9 and the successor R9s proved to be very popular among younger selfie-fans in Asia.

Now I am working as a news editor from all parts of the world, mostly writing about gadgets and mobile gear for Notebookcheck.
