Smartphone operating profits are slightly higher for Oppo last quarter compared to immediate Chinese competitors like Huawei, Vivo, and Xiaomi.

According to market analysts from Counterpoint Technology and their periodic "Monthly Pulse" data, Oppo has been leading the biggest smartphone brands in China since the end of July. Like Vivo, Oppo also operates under the umbrella of BBK Electronics Corporation and the source claims that smartphone profits from the corporation have outpaced Huawei.

The worldwide smartphone market generated an operating profit of around $10.2 billion USD as of Q3 2016 or a drop of 19 percent compared to Q3 2015. A portion of the drop can be attributed to Samsung's "3 billion Dollar" Galaxy Note 7 disaster according to the same analysts.

The four largest Chinese smartphone manufacturers are Oppo, Huawei, Vivo, and Xiaomi with total operating profits of 1.1 billion USD between them. This accounts for just over 10 percent of the total earnings in the industry as both Samsung and Apple eat up most of the profits. Individually, Oppo holds 3.9 percent of sales profits versus 3.3 percent and 3.1 percent from Huawei and Vivo, respectively. Xiaomi is far behind at just 0.4 percent. Apple now holds an even larger piece of the profit pie at 87.3 percent compared to 81.2 percent in Q3 2015.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
