OPPO has been honored with two top international awards in recognition of its innovation and industry influence. OPPO Air Glass won silver in the AR category at the 2023 Edison Best New Product Awards and was also named one of the 10 Most Innovative Asia-Pacific Companies of 2023 by business media Fast Company.
Established in 1987 in honor of renowned inventor Thomas Edison, the Edison Awards are among the most prestigious accolades in the world recognizing products, designs, and technologies that have made outstanding contributions to global innovation. The highly competitive Edison Awards are selected by a panel of over 3,000 senior business executives and academics from around the world based on the four criteria of concept, value, delivery, and impact.
At this year’s awards, which took place in Florida on April 20, OPPO’s Air Glass stood out from the competition to win silver in the AR category at the 2023 Edison Best New Product Awards. Judges highlighted both the innovative design and self-developed technologies as key factors in their decision to award the honor to OPPO Air Glass.
OPPO Air Glass is the world’s first detachable monocle AR glass. Weighing only 30g, OPPO Air Glass is comfortable to wear and convenient to use throughout the day. The device integrates a number of innovative technologies, including OPPO’s Spark Micro Projector, cutting-edge Micro LED, and bespoke diffraction optical waveguide display. Through these technologies, OPPO Air Glass provides notification, navigation, teleprompter, and real-time translation features through four modes of interaction. Since being released in 2021, the innovative lightweight design and functionality of the Air Glass have been well-received by consumers and the industry, including being awarded the 2022 Red Dot Design Award and IF Design Award.
As part of its mission to deliver the best technology and user experiences, OPPO unveiled an upgraded version of the device, OPPO Air Glass 2, at its INNO DAY 2022 event last year. The second-generation OPPO Air Glass includes a new binocular design while remaining extremely light and thin. More suited for daily wear, OPPO Air Glass 2 brings smart experiences to more people through innovative technologies.
Alongside awards earned for product innovation, OPPO has also been named by Fast Company as one of the 10 Most Innovative Asia-Pacific Companies of 2023 in recognition of the technological innovation and sustainable impact of its Battery Health Engine.
Compiled by top global business media Fast Company, the annual Most Innovative Companies list is seen as one of the most prestigious accolades in innovation. Every year, the Fast Company editorial team evaluates hundreds of companies to name the biggest innovators across different categories based on their overall impact on their given industry.
The OPPO Battery Health Engine is a system-level battery health optimizing solution designed to extend smartphone battery lifespan by solving the issue of dead lithium in lithium-ion batteries. OPPO’s Battery Health Engine can maintain battery capacity by as much as 80% over 1,600 charge cycles, which is around twice as long as the current industry average. Not only does the increase in battery lifespan address well-known consumer concerns towards battery longevity, it also improves sustainability by reducing the number of batteries that end up in landfills.
At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2023 in March, OPPO showcased its latest breakthrough in charging technology — the SUPERVOOC S power management chip — designed to deliver the most efficient charging and discharging solution for smartphones. Other technologies presented at MWC, including the environmentally friendly Zero-power Tags and OPPO’s self-developed MariSilicon Y flagship Bluetooth audio SoC, also received an overwhelmingly positive response from both end users and the industry.
