The company said that the smartphone factory stocks materials for over 1.2 million phones at any given point in order to ensure seamless supply chain.

“We will be building up on our manufacturing capabilities to meet the demand,” said Elvis Zhou, president of OPPO India.

The smartphone manufacturing facility, which has over 10,000 employees, produces more than 60 lakh phones a month during peak seasons.

The phone making facility has four sections including assembly, SMT (Surface Mount Technology), storage and supply warehouse.

The super-machines at the SMT section can hold 37,000 micro components per hour, adding on to the production efficiency.

OPPO said the phone manufacturing unit has 52 rows with 37 assembly stations and 20 test stations and can dispatch hundreds of micro-parts for 200 smartphones in under 10 minutes.

OPPO operates in more than 40 countries, with 6 Research Institutes and 4 R&D centers worldwide, as well as an International Design Center in London. The recently opened, first-ever R&D centre outside of China, in Hyderabad, is playing a pivotal role in the development of 5G technologies.

OPPO is the fourth largest smartphone supplier in the world during the fourth quarter of 2020. OPPO has shipped 33.8 million smartphones in 2020, accounting for 8.8 percent share of the smartphone market globally, according to IDC.
