OPPO is actively engaging  with startups, providing essential support to help them navigate obstacles and bring their innovations to fruition.

“At OPPO, we understand the diverse needs of startups. We offer comprehensive support, including funding, technology, and marketing, to foster their growth and extend the benefits of technology to more people.  Through these strategies, startups such as AlpsenTek, HUAYI, and CloudSteth are expected to apply their innovations to real life,” said Yan Ren, Director of Open Innovation, OPPO. “As AI has become one of the most promising areas these days, OPPO is actively entering this space and seeking further collaboration with startups to unlock new possibilities with AI.”

To be successful, startups need more than just an idea. An example is AlpsenTek, which specializes in machine vision and has leveraged OPPO’s financial and technical support to integrate its cutting-edge hybrid vision sensor ALPIX-Eiger® with AI algorithm capabilities. Leveraging Qualcomm’s Snapdragon® Mobile Platforms, OPPO led the development of a set of AI Motion algorithms that can process the information from sensor to de-blur images and help users capture true-to-life moments on the fly. This has helped AlpsenTek’s leading technology with the ability to be applied to smartphones and given it the chance to further drive AI-related innovation for both sides.

As OPPO has been investing in XR, another startup  DeepMirror has joined OPPO’s innovation networks. To help the company be quickly recognized by the industry, OPPO invited DeepMirror to showcase its latest AR game at the global stage, MWC24. Powered by its cloud-based service, MirrorVerse, visitors can interact with real environments inside games, adding more fun to the experience.   

To cultivate new technologies, co-creation is the name of the game. Whether for a big company or a startup, co-creation provides both parties with a way to make one plus one sum to something more than two.

A good example of this kind of R&D partnership is with HUAYI Medical Technologies. Founded in 2021, HUAYI is a high-tech startup that is specializing in contactless health monitoring technology and products. The company’s core technology solution is called “WonTrackR,” which combines millimeter wave technology, radar/physiological signal processing and reconstruction, and AI modeling. Unlike the cold, mechanical medical equipment of old, a device featuring WonTrackR can be placed anywhere at home to monitor various health metrics, taking care of family members in a warm and unintrusive way. 

CloudSteth is another example. CloudSteth’s intelligent auscultation system can automatically analyze heart and lung sounds through AI to help children with pneumonia, asthma, and congenital heart disease get diagnosed earlier and receive the medical treatment they need sooner. Through close cooperation with leading hospitals in China, the company has accumulated rich experience in medical treatment. 

For OPPO, empowering startups is not a one-off, but a part of its permanent mission. As the AI revolution reshapes possibilities across industries, startups represent a beacon of hope for pioneering advancements. OPPO remains dedicated to collaborating with and supporting the next generation of startups, driving innovation and delivering transformative experiences for users worldwide.
