Tough to match Samsung: OnePlus and Oppo accept defeat in Europe?




China’s OPPO and OnePlus are reportedly shutting down their smartphone business in key markets of Europe. Tipter Max Jambor confidently confirmed that OPPO and OnePlus are pulling out of Europe, starting from Germany, the UK, France, and the Netherlands.

Update: March 27, 08:19 AM | OnePlus denied rumors of its departure from Europe and the UK (via Android Authority).

“OnePlus will not exit from Europe and the UK and maintains stable operations in local markets. OnePlus will continue to invest in Europe and provide more innovative product and solutions for its users.”

Samsung, on the other hand, continues to follow the path of innovation and delivering cutting-edge technology to consumers in the region. Even after the massive economical downturn, the company is presenting pro-grade smartphones and devices with meaningful upgrades.

Rivals from China including OnePlus and OPPO first tried to match Samsung with cheap devices having flagship specs on paper. They continue to launch new phones and mobile devices in European markets, but consumers have not prioritized them over Galaxy!

In the last year, OPPO and OnePlus together faced a whopping 17 percent decline in Europe. As both vendors managed to grab a slice of the smartphone market in the past few years, they will maintain a team with a limited number of workers to keep operations running.

Tipster SnoopyTech revealed that both phone makers will gradually pull down operations in the region, probably by mid-2023. Through this decision, Chinese competitors are making more room for Samsung in European markets including the UK, Germany, and France.

So far, OnePlus or OPPO has not officially confirmed their departure from Europe. Meanwhile, the regional laws and policies might be making business tougher for these vendors, in addition to facing a sharp drop. That said, Samsung is swiftly following the EU and its decisions to run the business as smoothly as butter.

It’s worth mentioning that Oppo has recently launched its first flip-style foldable phone in the UK. As the business is going to be terminated, there won’t be any sequel in the region, while Find N2 Flip owners will face difficulties in after-sales support.

Watch Next-Gen Samsung Display In Action: Rollable, Flex In and Out and Sensor OLED



Samsung Rollable Flex

At SID 2023, Samsung unveiled next-gen display technologies and showcased them through device prototypes. I like Rollable Flex the most, while the Flex In and Out and Sensor OLED Display panels are stunningly wonderful. Check the next-gen Samsung Display prototypes below:

Rollable Flex

Rollable Flex expands more than five times, from 49 mm to 254.4 mm in length. While conventional foldable or slidable form factors offer up to three times the scalability, Rollable Flex overcomes such limitations by enabling the display to be rolled and unrolled on an O-shaped axis like a scroll.

Flex In & Out

This new foldable phone concept can be folded both inward and outward 360 degrees.

The ‘in-folding’ form factor, which can only be folded inward, requires a separate external panel to view information while folded, but the Flex In & Out is able to overcome that, opening up the possibility of lighter and thinner foldable phones.

Sensor OLED Display

Samsung Display unveiled a new Sensor OLED Display that can recognize fingerprints anywhere on the screen and even check cardiovascular health at SID Display Week 2023. It can measure the user’s heart rate, blood pressure and stress level simply with the touch of two fingers.
