OPPO confirms plans to enter UK market, but will it launch the Find X there?


OPPO itself is the only investment property connected to OnePlus. Although Lau and co-founder Carl Pei continuously deny that OnePlus is actually a subsidiary of OPPO, it can’t be denied that the companies are inextricably linked.

Even if you didn’t look at the financial history of OnePlus to find its ties to OPPO, you’d only need to look at the design of the devices themselves to figure out how the company works. Let’s take a look at every device launched by OnePlus — and the corresponding OPPO device which is the blueprint of that design.

OnePlus One & Two vs OPPO Find 7A

When the OnePlus One launched in 2014, it was like a bomb dropped. The phone’s hardware, specs, and price were unheard of at the time. The invite system was a novel approach to keep costs down while simultaneously driving brand loyalty and awareness. The phone’s CyanogenMod-based ROM was a nod to all the Android fanboys out there who love to root, unlock, and flash their devices.

To top it all off, the phone’s design was simply incredible.

But it isn’t like OnePlus concocted everything about the OnePlus One out of thin air. Take a look at the OnePlus One as compared to the OPPO Find 7A, released during the same year.

The phones are not identical but share many elements. It’s almost like OnePlus took the hardware aspects of the OPPO Find 7A and created its own device from those parts.

OnePlus X vs OPPO A30

Even though the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are almost two years old at this point, some would argue that they represent the peak of OnePlus’ efforts. The phone’s size, screen, and feature set rivaled anything released that year, and the OP3’s price of $399 (the OP3T launched at $439) kept it still firmly in the mid-range pricing category.

OnePlus 5T vs OPPO R11S

While it would be difficult to distinguish between the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T simply by looking at them, that’s hardly the case with the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. The removal of the front fingerprint scanner and the drastic slimming of the bezels are a dead giveaway that the phones are much different.

But the OnePlus 5T is directly linked to the OPPO R11S, itself just an upgrade to the OPPO R11 that the OnePlus 5 was linked to. At this point, OPPO and OnePlus are linking their releases together by name and design — just not by countries of availability or software.

OnePlus 6 vs OPPO R15 Pro

The introduction of the display notch in the OnePlus 6 design certainly caused some controversy. However, we all should have known it was coming where we first saw design renders of the OPPO R15 Pro, which — once again — looks so similar to the OnePlus 6 that it’s uncanny.

OnePlus 6T vs OPPO R17 Who’s on first?

A lot of Android enthusiasts are probably reading this article thinking to themselves, “Duh, we all knew this already.” But there’s one thing we don’t know: who’s in charge now? While OPPO is certainly doing pretty well for itself (it is currently the fifth-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world), is it still leading the way with design, or has it started cribbing instead from OnePlus?

What Are The Differences Between The Oppo R11 And Oneplus 5? Hands On.

I’ve been quite fortunate this week as my OnePlus 5 has arrived (no thanks to DHL) and it has finally given me the opportunity to answer one of my biggest questions about it. “Is the OnePlus 5 just a renamed and differently specced Oppo R11?”.

With both phones in my hand, I can finally report that this is not the case.

Before both phones launched, I was fairly certain that the OnePlus 5 was just a rebranded Oppo R11. Photos of the phones online show that they are very similar in design, the R11 fits the OP5 case, some of the specs are identical (the camera specs are very similar) and it’s not like OnePlus hasn’t rebadged an Oppo before is it?

What are the physical differences between the Oppo R11 and OnePlus 5?

If you were to give both phones a quick glance, even with them both in your hand you could easily think that they are the same physical body and design, but on closer inspection, you’ll come across plenty of physical differences;

The OnePlus 5 has a single, thick antenna on the rear of its shell while the Oppo R11 has a dual-line antenna design.

While the dual camera module on each phone appears identical, the OP5’s doesn’t protrude as much from the body (probably due to the thicker physical size).

The actual position of the main cameras units is slightly different too, which is only really noticeable when you use an Oppo R11 case on the OP5.

Gizchina News of the week

Between the cameras and flash on the rear of the OnePlus 5 is a microphone, the Oppo R11 doesn’t have this.

The OnePlus 5 uses a Micro USB for DASH charge, while the Oppo R11 uses an older micro USB interface for VOOC charging. Oppo has drilled smaller speaker/microphone holes in the base of the R11 (again likely due to the thickness of the phone) the holes on the OP5 are physically larger.

In addition to the physical size, the speaker holes are also drilled in a different position. This is easy to see if you try to use the R11 case on the OP5.

While both phones have the power and volume rockers in similar locations the OnePlus 5 also has OnePlus’ signature notification slider switch.

Micro SIM trays on both phones are completely different in design. The R11’s is longer and can either use dual SIM or a single SIM and Micro SD while the OnePlus 5’s is shorter has the SIM positioned differently and will only accept dual sims.

On top of these physical differences, there are also major differences in the hardware too. The OnePlus 5 comes with up to 8GB RAM, 128GB memory and a powerful Snapdragon 835 while the Oppo R11 has a mid-range Snapdragon 660, just 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

When it comes to using each phone though it’s the OS that comes loaded on each phone that really makes a huge difference. While my version of the Oppo R11 is a model designed for Singapore and does come with Google services, I have found the ColorOS to lag and be quite buggy (more details in my upcoming review). On the other hand, the OP5’s Oxygen OS is snappy, responsive and so far bug-free (I don’t even have the dreaded screen wobble).

I’m sure I’ll come across more differences between each phone, but I think I’ve answered my own question to a satisfactory standard.

“Is the OnePlus 5 just a renamed and differently specced Oppo R11?” “No, it isn’t”

All that remains to be seen is which of these phones is the better device, and I’ll have the answer to that question in my upcoming reviews.

Buy A Oneplus 8 Pro And Get The Oneplus 7T For $1

The OnePlus 8 Pro currently costs $799. However, if you add both the OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 7T to your cart, the total will be $800. This is a giveaway price for two smartphones. If you have a family or friend who is also shopping for a phone, this might just be a good deal for you guys.

Unfortunately, the AndroidPolice report does not contain the “terms and conditions” of this deal. Such sales usually come with terms and conditions. We do not know if there is a limited number of units for this deal. There is also no mention of an expiring date for the sales. Well, there is no harm in trying and if you succeed, you’ve got a massive deal.

OnePlus 8 Pro Vs OnePlus 7T

Of course, the OnePlus 8 Pro is better than the OnePlus 7T. It is a higher generation and comes with better features. While the OP8 uses the latest Snapdragon 865 SoC, the OP7T comes with a Snapdragon 855+. Also, note that the OP7T model in the deal is the T-Mobile variant. Thus, you need to do some assessment, especially for wireless band compatibility before claiming the deal. Below is the specs sheet of both smartphones

Oppo Unveils 125W Flash Charge And A New Range Of Chargers

Read more: How fast charging really works: Everything you need to know

A closer look at 125W Flash Charge

Let’s start with the really big deal here: 125W wired charging. That’s crazy fast, virtually doubling OPPO’s already incredibly fast 65W SuperVOOC standard. OPPO’s 125W standard claims to power up a 4,000mAh battery to full in 20 minutes and will hit 41% capacity in just five minutes. This is all achieved while keeping the phone’s battery under 40°C, which will help offset some battery degradation.

Higher power charging puts a lot of strain on the battery, leading OPPO to make key changes to its smartphone batteries. The dual-cell structure remains but the battery C-rating has doubled from 3C to 6C. The C-rating is essentially how much continuous current a battery can withstand and a general indicator of quality and resistance to overheating at high charge rates. OPPO’s 125W solution pushes a whopping 12.5A of current into these batteries at its peak, requiring higher quality batteries. Faster charging is also supplied by three charging pumps, boasting up to 98% efficiency, and a six-way multiple-tab battery setup.

Oppo’s 125W charger supports USB Power Delivery and Quick Charge, too.

If like me, you’re not a fan of proprietary charging standards. OPPO appears to have heard us. The 125W charger is compatible with USB Power Delivery (PD) at 65W, USB Power Delivery Programmable Power Supply (PPS) at 125W, and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge at 36W. This makes OPPO’s new charger a one-size-fits-all solution for virtually all your gadgets. Pretty awesome.

There is a drawback to this fast charging tech though. OPPO makes efforts to keep temperatures reasonable, but operating as such a high C-rating is bound to cause batteries to degrade faster than slower charging methods. The company states that its batteries are rated to retain 80% of their capacity after 800 charge cycles. That could produce a noticeable hit to screen-on time within two years of buying such a smartphone.

65W AirVOOC for wireless power

Wireless power is notoriously slow compared to wired charging, but that’s gradually changing. We’ve seen 30W wireless charging from OnePlus this year, but OPPO’s 65W AirVOOC is faster than pretty much every wired smartphone solution on the market right now. For a 4,000mAh battery, OPPO promises just 30 minutes to full, down from 56 minutes with its previous 40W technology.

To bring this feat to market, the 65W AirVOOC charger relies on dual charging coils with an impressive 88% efficiency. So you’ll need a device with the same arrangement on the inside to actually use these speeds. OPPO is working on a method to deliver 65W over a single charging coil, too.

The wireless charging stand keeps your device under 40°C thanks to a bottom-mounted fan blowing air across your handset. The dock and coils are kept cool with the addition of semiconductor cooling materials that are apparently popular in the esports industry. If all that wasn’t enough, OPPO’s stand also works with devices sporting the Qi standard, albeit at much slower 10W and 5W speeds.

Two mini GaN chargers too

Gallium nitride (GaN) is powering smaller, more portable, high-power chargers and OPPO has leveraged the material for its high-frequency switching power supply inside its 50W and 110W mini-chargers. The 50W model is just 10.5mm thick and weighs a tiny 60 grams. OPPO says the 100W model is comparable in size to a typical 18W charger. Two good options for travelers looking to ditch bulky wall plugs.

The 50W and 110W mini-chargers also support USB PD and USB PPS standards. The former maxes out at 27W PD, 50W PPS, and 18W QC. The 110W model supports 110W PPS, 65W PD, and 36W QC. They should be able to serve as the only charger you’ll need for the majority of your gadgets, including higher-power laptops.

As impressive as OPPO’s latest charging lineup appears, we’re still missing a few pieces of the puzzle: Pricing and availability for one, and how long we’ll have to wait before we see our first smartphone that charges up at 125W. But we do know that OPPO plans to ship the 125W charger with a future device as well as selling it as a standalone accessory. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for when OPPO’s super-fast charging technology hits the market, presumably later in the year.

The Potential Power Of An Amd And Ibm Partnership

This week AMD released its latest Epyc 7Fx2 Processors, and they are performance beasts (with 50% lower cost of ownership). The Cloud companies mainly took interest because they focus on performance over almost everything else, and in AMD, they appear to recognize the performance value these processors represent. 

Participating in the launch were the who’s who of cloud providers, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, and Tencent Cloud.  But one of the Cloud providers that caught my interest was IBM, and they have been moving aggressively of late to overcome their late arrival on the competitive field and showcase they can play with the big boys.  

Protecting your company’s data is critical. Cloud storage with automated backup is scalable, flexible and provides peace of mind. Cobalt Iron’s enterprise-grade backup and recovery solution is known for its hands-free automation and reliability, at a lower cost. Cloud backup that just works.


But there is a unique opportunity that these two companies have with each other in that AMD’s executive leadership came from IBM, and that gives them more in-depth insight into IBM’s processes and operations. The result could be a partnership that reaches legendary proportions, and I think that potential connection is worth exploring this week. 

One of the significant issues in the current tech segment is that the major technology suppliers are unusually powerful. Typically a company like IBM, Dell, or HPE would be so much more potent than the firms supplying them with parts leadership in the final complete product is clear. The OEM is the leader. The parts folks follow that lead. 

But with suppliers like Intel and Microsoft, their power can often exceed that of an OEM, and when that happens, the tail can seem to be wagging the dog. Because they are typically more removed from customers, the result is a suboptimal offering where critical decisions were made by the parts supplier, not the OEM. 

Now Microsoft gets around this in the Cloud space by having one of the leading Cloud platforms, and in the PC space with Surface. But both create other problems because Microsoft, with those offerings, is competing with their OEM partners who, and they can be vocal about this at times, aren’t pleased with that competition. 

Now on the PC side, this has turned into a major annoyance. Still, on the Cloud side, mainly due to the nature of the business, the OEM’s only big problem is that Azure has such a substantial market presence. Still, Amazon and Microsoft have always had a somewhat rocky relationship with Amazon anyway.  

Ideally, as an OEM, you want a parts supplier that is subordinate, but what would also be handy is a parts supplier that also understands the OEM’s internal process so the supplier can better fit within it.  Often, assuming there aren’t leftover issues from the divestiture, a unit that has been sold by a company that became a parts supplier would be the best choice.  But, there often is a ton of hatred in that regard between the two firms making it very difficult for them to collaborate. 

But AMD didn’t spin out of IBM; several ex-IBM executives just lead them. The result is that, at least with AMD leadership, they know intimately how IBM operates, what it wants from a supplier, and even has the depth of contacts to be able to make critical calls if something appears to be going wrong.  

But they won’t compete with IBM for leadership because they know IBM is closer to the customer.  Also, AMD has been one of the most aggressive in terms of building custom processors for its clients, having created custom processors for Microsoft (Xbox and Surface) and Sony (Playstation). 

While Microsoft is aware of this AMD capability, given they’ve used it with two products, they’ll be on top of this as well. Still, others may not (Google might be another exception), allowing this combination to result in Cloud offerings unique to IBM and uniquely powerful in the Enterprise space given the market leader, Amazon, spends a lot of their effort below the Enterprise.  And, in the Enterprise, there isn’t another Cloud player that has IBM’s experience, which extends back well into the last century.  

If these two firms execute their potential, the result could be a game-changer in the Enterprise-Cloud space. 

Inside The Classroom And Mind Of An Extraordinary Teacher

I’m beginning to agree with traditionalists who argue that education should go back to the old days — if we could be assured of landing at Midland , an elementary school in Rye, New York, between 1956 and 1966. More specifically, alighting in the classroom of teacher Albert Cullum. He had an intuitive sense of what worked in education, regularly incorporating teaching methods from project learning to social emotional learning, long before they had academic labels.

“We must remember how children learn rather than how we teach,” explains Cullum in A Touch of Greatness , a 2004 documentary produced by Catherine Gund for the PBS series Independent Lens. “Through movement, through emotions, through activities, through projects, all the basics fit in and they’re learning without realizing they’re learning. Learning’s not painful, learning should be joyful.”

An unrequited actor, Cullum infused his passion for literature, storytelling and movement into his teaching. He believed in Hamlet and Ophelia over Dick and Jane, and taught geography by having his students “swim” (in their bathing suits) up an imaginary Mississippi River, made by unfurling a giant roll of paper on top of a huge map of the United States painted on the school playground.

No slight intended, but if everyone who has seen Davis Guggenheim’s massively popular documentary Waiting For ‘Superman’ spent an hour with Cullum and his students in Greatness, the debate over education reform would be about firing up teachers, instead of firing them.

Fortunately for us, Cullum’s extraordinary lessons were preserved for all time by his friend Robert Downey Sr., then a nascent filmmaker. Downey’s mesmerizing black and white footage captures 10 and 11-year-olds putting such raw emotion into their parts in Antigone, Saint Joan and Julius Caesar, that I challenge any acting school in the country to top them. Cullum wasn’t surprised by the honesty of the performances, especially for such young kids. “Every public school girl should have a chance to play the part of Saint Joan before the age of 12,” he explains, “because the older you get, the more difficult it is to hear the voices of Saint Margaret and Saint Catherine calling you.”

Greatness director Leslie Sullivan weaves Downey’s archival footage with a 1999 reunion of Cullum and some of his students, now in their 40s and 50s. Cullum, who was nearing 80 at the time, died in 2003 shortly after the filming was completed. For this moment, though, he and his former students gather back at Midland School so naturally you’d think they’d been holding regular Sunday barbecues for the past five decades. When one woman shows Cullum the spelling lists she’s kept all these years, a former classmate quips that she’s still striving for A’s. And when David Pugh, from Cullum’s class of 1959, recalls what a troublemaker he was back then, Cullum surprises him by revealing a secret. “Let it be known that I traded you,” says Cullum to a roar of laughter, telling the boy he was scheduled for another teacher, “And I said, ‘No, give me that kid and I’ll give you two dull ones.'” Pugh grew up to become a New York City public school teacher.

It’s hard to imagine a teacher who organized literature conventions at school and had his students vote on their favorite authors (Shakespeare and Shaw tied), surviving in today’s classrooms. A man who preached, in his numerous books and interviews, that learning should be “joyful” and “playful” would likely find no joy in a system that judges teachers and students solely on the basis of standardized tests scores.
