This is why Poco hasn’t launched a Snapdragon 865 or 855 phone yet

Poco X2 and logo in focus

Poco has officially launched its second smartphone to date and it’s not the Poco F2. You don’t get a flagship killer without a flagship chipset. Instead, we got the Poco X2 — at best a mid-range phone with some cool tricks up its sleeve. It comes with a 120Hz display and quad cameras under the $ 250 price tag, but it doesn’t really cut it if you were waiting for a Pocophone F1 successor.

We asked Poco’s general manager Manmohan Chandolu why that’s the case and one of the primary reasons he cited is a slight deviation in the traditional pricing structure of flagship chipsets. According to Chandolu, Poco — a company that calls itself a startup — did not find costs of Qualcomm’s 2019 and 2020 flagship SoCs feasible. Here’s what Poco says happened.

Our verdict: Poco X2 review: A perfectly average mid-range phone

A chip off the block

“Chipsets right now, all 800-series chipsets, are extremely expensive. And [the Snapdragon 865], being the first 5G generation, is just a lot more expensive,” the executive told Android Authority at the Poco X2 launch.

The face of Poco’s newly formed independent identity, Chandolu still swears by the Snapdragon 845 and believes it to be an extremely well-priced performance workhorse. “But 845 is not there in the market anymore,” he remarked.

While we would tend to agree with the Poco GM on the Snapdragon 845’s capabilities even almost a year after its launch, the question still remains: why didn’t Poco upgrade to the Snapdragon 865, or at least the 855?

Related: The Poco X2 isn’t the Pocophone you’ve been waiting for (and that’s okay)

“The Snapdragon 865, as I told you, is already very expensive and it does not make any sense,” Chandolu said, “Then what could we have considered? [The Snapdragon] 855. Right?”

He continues to tell us that the Snapdragon 855 did not see the same price depreciation as the company expected: “The 855 was launched with a little [sic] higher price point and we expected that also to undergo some depreciation. But 865 has launched extremely high and now the transition from 4G to 5G is happening across the board. So the depreciation the 855 should have seen [did not happen].”

That’s why, Poco claims, it chose the more affordable Snapdragon 730G octa-core chipset. Chandolu believes the Poco X2, like the F1, will still stay true to being a gaming-centric device even with a 700-series Qualcomm SoC at its heart.

Why does a higher processor cost matter?

Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 in hand front

It’s a well-known fact in the smartphone industry (and in basic economics) that higher processor costs directly impact the retail prices of phones.

In this instance, the Snapdragon 845 which powered the first Poco phone reportedly cost manufacturers somewhere around $ 45 plus additional licensing fee per chip. Its price was later reduced, as Chandolu tells us, but it’s no longer available in the market.

Related: How low will 5G smartphone prices go in 2020?

Then came the Snapdragon 855 and 855 Plus, which were reportedly priced around $ 53 per chip, in addition to some extra fee that Qualcomm is said to charge. Now, industry insiders believe that prices of 5G chipsets, like the Snapdragon 865, are likely 50% more than their 4G counterparts.

This will not only unnecessarily drive up the cost of upcoming flagship smartphones in markets where 5G is a non-factor, it will also prevent the likes of Poco from pulling off an affordable flagship-grade 5G phone at the original Pocophone F1’s price point of $ 300.

Is a cheap Pocophone F2 coming with a Snapdragon 865?

While Chandolu refused to confirm the existence of the Poco F2, unlike in a previous interview, he didn’t seem too optimistic about bringing a 5G-ready smartphone to the Indian market yet.

That’s because Poco is essentially an India-only brand as of now. It is not looking to expand its horizons internationally just yet. That, combined with the lack of any 5G network in the country right now or in the near future, would not serve Poco’s interests at the moment.

“It’s not just chipsets, right? We also want the infrastructure to be ready,” said Chandolu. “Again, what’s the point of having a chipset if the infrastructure is not available?”

“My worry with 5G right now is that it requires a lot of infrastructure costs, huge infrastructure costs, so I do not know how that will play. Probably closer to that [India getting the 5G infrastructure] we will probably take a look at our strategy and formulate our thoughts on it.”

For now, a powerful Poco flagship still seems unlikely to launch anytime soon… unless the company surprises us all by pulling a rabbit out of its hat for a second time.

The future of Poco

Poco X2 and back panel

In a nutshell, the new Poco brand doesn’t seem to have a clear chipset or pricing play in mind. Chandolu says that the brand will keep its strategy dynamic and is not really ready to set things in stone.

Poco also has a bunch of other factors to consider, including how much it can compete with its former parent company Xiaomi. This is especially problematic since both brands still share many of the same resources, right down to research and development. Then there’s the matter of Xiaomi bringing its premium Mi-branded phones to India, which Poco will need to carefully weigh in order to price its flagships competitively.

For now, however, we have the Poco X2, and the promise that the Poco brand is back and, this time around, is here to stay.

Here’s why Xiaomi hasn’t delivered a 100W charging phone just yet

100 watt charging demonstration by Xiaomi.Weibo/Bin Lin

Xiaomi made waves almost a year ago when it revealed that it was working on 100W charging technology, capable of charging a 4,000mAh battery in 17 minutes. The company said Redmi phones would get the tech first, but we haven’t heard anything else since then.

Now, Redmi general manager Lu Weibing has taken to Weibo to reveal five technical difficulties associated with 100W charging (and fast charging in general).

Major battery degradation

Perhaps the biggest consideration is battery capacity, with the Redmi executive saying faster charging results in greater capacity loss. And this is a big issue when you’ve got 100W charging.

“According to preliminary estimates, the capacity of a 100W fast charge battery is about 20% less than that of a 30W PD fast charge. In short, 5,000mAh becomes 4,000mAh,” Lu said according to a machine-translated version of his post.

In other words, it seems like 100W charging requires a big battery right now in order to off-set the degradation. Otherwise, your 4,000mAh battery will eventually become a 3,200mAh battery due to charging-induced degradation.

This isn’t the only technical difficulty cited by the Redmi executive, as he also points to the technical architecture, charger compatibility, charging protections throughout the device (e.g. for battery, motherboard etc), and general performance as four other hurdles to overcome.

Nevertheless, the Xiaomi executive says 100W charging has “reached the early stage of mature production and can be expected in the future.” So it definitely sounds like we can still expect a 100W smartphone, but it will probably have a massive battery to fight off the effects of degradation.

The 10 best Canon lenses for your DSLR camera

Canon Logo CES 2020

Canon’s kit lenses are great, but at some point you need to step out of your comfort zone and get nicer glass. Those looking for the best Canon lenses have come to the right place. We have put together a list of our favorite lenses coming from the photography giant. We’ve included lenses from different price ranges and shooting styles to fit all users’ needs.

Best Canon lenses:

Editor’s note: We’ll be updating this list of the best Canon lenses regularly as new ones launch


1. Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM

Canon EF 50mm f1.8 STM Lens

Your first glass investment should be a 50mm f/1.8. I seriously shoot about 70% of all my photos with one, and Canon’s model goes for a mere $ 125. The 50mm focal length is great for general purpose photography, and image quality in such prime lenses is superb. The wide aperture also makes for amazing bokeh (blurry background).


2. Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS

Canon EF S 18 200mm f3.5 5.6 IS Lens side

Those who don’t want to be carrying around a bunch of lenses will find comfort in the Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens. The 18-200mm focal length offers enough versatility that this could very well be the only lens you will ever need. It is lacking a wide aperture, but you could still achieve great results with enough light.

Its only downside is a major one: it’s made for APS-C sensors. You will have to crop or live with a horrible vignette if you plan to use it on a full-frame camera. Otherwise, it’s a great investment at $ 699.


3. Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro

Canon EF 100mm f2.8L IS USM Macro lens side

Every photographer should have a good macro lens in his bag, and the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM is one of the best Canon lenses. A 12-inch focusing distance and 10mm focal length will let you get up close and personal with any subject. Meanwhile, an f/2.8 aperture can let plenty of light into the sensor while keeping a shallow depth of field.

Don’t miss: The best Canon cameras you can buy right now

The lens is made for shooting plants, insects, and other small objects, but you are not limited to macro photography. It can be used as a general-purpose lens too.


4. Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM

Canon EF 24 70mm f2.8L II USM Lens

In the photography scene, the “holy trinity” is a trio of the best lenses a photographer can get. These can take care of most focal lengths while outputting maximum quality. The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens is the first one, and the following two lenses complete the “trinity.”

This 24-70mm lens has an f/2.8 aperture and great quality optics. It is considered the king of standard zoom lenses, but it also comes at a price of $ 1,599.


5. Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L is III USM

EF 70 200mm f2.8L is III USM Lens side

The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L is III USM Lens can zoom in even further while keeping a wide aperture. It is a great lens for those who need to shoot subjects from a distance. Sports, nature, and street photographers love it. It comes with a mighty $ 1,799 price tag.


6. Canon EF 16–35mm f/2.8L III USM

EF 16–35mm f2.8L III USM Lens

A 16-35mm focal length keeps you covered for capturing wide-angle images. It’s great for landscapes, large subjects, and crowds. The f/2.8 aperture is also great for letting in light and keeping a tighter control on depth of field. It’s expensive at $ 1,899, but it’s worth the price.


7. Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 Macro IS STM

Canon RF 35mm f1.8 Macro IS STM

Lenses listed above are great, but we know many of you are switching to mirrorless systems, for which Canon has created the RF mount. These new lenses mark a new age in the company’s business, as well as the industry. This is why the rest of the lenses on this list have an RF mount.

This is the first Canon lens with an RF mount you should get. Not only is it the cheapest of its kind at $ 499, but the 35mm focal length and f/1.8 aperture will make this a great all-around lens for general purposes. Not only that, but this lens has macro abilities and can focus at a distance of 0.56 feet or 0.17 meters from the subject.


8. Canon RF 85mm f/1.2 L USM DS

Canon RF 85mm f1.2 L USM DS

The Canon RF 85mm f/1.2 is one of the best lenses to come from the photography giant. The product is acclaimed by professionals in the industry for its build and glass quality. It is great for portraits and general purpose photography. We also can’t ignore that f/1.2 aperture, which will create an amazing separation between the subject and background. All of this comes with a hefty price of $ 2,999, but professionals will love it.


9. Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8 IS USM

RF 24 70mm f2.8 IS USM

The 24-70mm focal length is considered part of the “holy trinity”, but this lens is specifically made with an RF mount for mirrorless cameras. This is a premium lens that will fit a wide variety of photo scenarios. With an f/2.8 aperture, the lens is also pretty fast. This is a premium lens and its price shows it at $ 2,299.


10. Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

Canon RF 70 200mm f2.8L IS USM

The 70-200mm focal length range is great for getting up and close with your subject when you can’t physically get close. This RF mount lens is native to Canon’s mirrorless systems. It is praised for its smaller size, solid construction, and great image quality. Its f/2.8 max aperture is also very nice to have. You will have to pay up for the new mount and reduced size, though. This lens costs $ 2,699.


These are the best Canon lenses currently available! We’ll add new models to the list once they launch.

Nokia announces MWC 2020 press event, but what will it launch?

Nokia MWC 2020 Invite

HMD Global has scheduled a press event for MWC 2020 where it’s expected to launch a number of Nokia phones. The event will take place on February 23 at 4PM local time (10AM ET). Meanwhile, MWC officially starts on February 24.

As you can see in the image above, the press invite for the Nokia event does not reveal much except for the date and time [the venue is redacted – ed]. However, we have some idea of what to expect from the house of HMD.

Nokia 9.2 PureView

It’s unlikely that we’ll witness the launch of a flagship Nokia phone at MWC 2020.

HMD has apparently delayed the so-called Nokia 9.2 PureView due to a last minute call on replacing an older chipset with the latest Snapdragon 865 flagship SoC.

Nokia 8.2

HMD Global previously confirmed a new 5G-ready smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 765G. The phone is reportedly called the Nokia 8.2 5G. Leaked details of the device suggest a glass-unibody design with a metallic frame.

The phone is expected to get a 6.2 inch IPS LCD display with HDR 10+ support.

Related: How low will 5G phone prices go in 2020?

It could house a 64MP quad rear camera setup with Zeiss optics and a 32MP selfie shooter.

The Nokia 8.2 5G is tipped to cost €459 (~$ 505). At this price, it will be one of the cheapest 5G phones out there.

Nokia 5.2

Aside from the Nokia 8.2 5G, we could also see the launch of the affordable Nokia 5.2 at MWC. Leaked specs of the phone include: a dated Snapdragon 632 chipset, a 6.2-inch LCD display, 16MP + 8MP dual primary cameras, an 8MP selfie shooter, and a 3,500mAh battery.

The Nokia 5.2 is expected to come with a price tag of €169 (~$ 186).

Nokia 1.3

The Nokia 1.3 is apparently an entry-level phone with 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage. It could be Nokia’s 2020 Android Go phone running the Android 10 (Go Edition) update. Rumor has it that the device will run on a MediaTek chipset.


Besides the three smartphones, Nokia could also launch a feature phone and a fitness wearable at the event.

What do you think of Nokia’s rumored MWC 2020 lineup? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Google is working on ‘unified’ messaging app to take on Microsoft Teams, Slack

Google is said to be working on a unified messaging app for businesses.

Google has a reputation for launching and ditching numerous messaging and communications apps over the years. It looks like the search company isn’t giving up yet, as it’s apparently working on a mobile app that unifies various Google services.

According to The Information (paywall), citing several sources who used the app or were briefed on it, the new app is set to be part of its G-Suite collection of enterprise services.

The outlet’s sources say the new app “brings together the functions of several standalone apps the company already offers, including Gmail and its online storage service Drive.” It’s also believed that Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat functionality will be offered in this app. The website says you can also launch the Google Calendar app via this new app, but you’ll need the Calendar app installed in order to do so.

News of the app comes as Google’s enterprise services comes under pressure from the likes of Microsoft Teams and Slack. Microsoft Teams in particular offers messaging, online meetings, calls, video chat, and Office365 integration.

In fact, The Information‘s sources specifically say the new Google app is meant to “help it compete more effectively with application suites from Microsoft and others.” This indeed suggests that Google’s unified communications app is a direct assault on Microsoft Teams and Slack.

Motorola says ‘bumps and lumps are normal’ on Razr screen

The Motorola Razr is the latest foldable phone on the market, and the first to offer a clamshell form factor akin to feature-phones of yore. The pre-order campaign kicked off this past weekend and Motorola has a few pointers for buyers before they get their hands on devices.

An official video dubbed “Caring for Razr” (h/t: The Verge) says that “bumps and lumps are normal” on the Motorola Razr screen.

It’s not uncommon to see a crease on the display area covering the hinge as the screen folds and unfolds. But bumps are another matter entirely, so we do wonder how big these imperfections can get on the Motorola Razr screen before they’re not considered normal. After all, these lumps were a sign of a defective Galaxy Fold, as internal components poked at the screen.

Either way, this serves as another reminder that today’s foldable phones are still in their infancy, as you wouldn’t expect bumps and lumps on a traditional smartphone display.

The video also calls on users to close the Motorola Razr before stowing it in a pocket or bag. Furthermore, it warns users not to add a screen protector to the device. It’s not all bad news though, as the clip notes that the device is water repellent, saying owners need to wipe the phone with a dry cloth if it gets wet.

Motorola’s phone is expected to be released next month, which is also when the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is tipped to launch. Which device would you buy if you had to choose? Give us your picks in the comments below!

How to edit a video in Adobe Premiere Pro

How to adobe premiere pro

Any successful YouTuber can tell you that an essential part of making hit videos is having top-notch editing skills. There are tons of programs out there, but many videographers turn to Adobe Premiere Pro to edit a video. It’s with good reason, as Adobe integrates much of the Creative Cloud for its projects. However, the Creative Cloud tends to have a steep learning curve.

We can get you started with a couple of tips for editing your next viral hit. There are tons of things you can do in Adobe Premiere Pro, but we’ll just start with the very basics of editing a video.

How to edit a video

1. Before you can start editing a project on Premiere Pro, you have to create it. You can open a new project easily with the following commands:

Windows: Ctrl+Alt+N, Mac: Opt+Cmd+N

That was pretty easy, right? Well, it’s all uphill from here.

2. Now you’ve got your file open, you need to add some content to your project. You can use simple commands to search through your computer for most leading files, for example:

Windows: Ctrl+Alt+I, Mac: Opt+Cmd+I

I mean, we can’t give you ideas for the videos, but at least this part is straight forward.

3. Now that you have your content, it’s time to drag and drop it where you need it on your timeline. You can also use the Overwrite and Insert buttons on your source monitor to place your clips. You can even nest sequences to achieve new effects using the following command:

Windows: Ctrl+U, Mac: Cmd+U

Now we’re really starting to see a project come together.

4. Once you have all your clips and content in order, it’s time for transitions. Hit videos rarely feature the same effects and transitions over and over again so add a title with the following command:

Windows: Ctrl+T, Mac: Cmd+T

And adjust your transitions and effects from the Effects Controls panel with this shortcut:

Windows: Ctrl+D, Mac: Cmd+D

5. Adobe Premiere Pro also packs a powerful sound mixer so you can make the audio for your video sound just right. You can use the audio clip mixer with the command Shift+9, and the audio track mixer with Shift+6.

6. After you finish all of these basic steps, you’re ready to export your video. You can save it to many file types with the Adobe Media Encoder and send it to Blu-ray, DVD, or a digital file.

What else can you do to create content?

There are numerous tools to edit a video out there, and these are the most basic of Adobe Premiere Pro instructions. You would be amazed by how many programs and platforms you can learn once you get the ball rolling. All it takes is a little bit of training to get your content creation up and running quickly.

If you want to dive deeper into Adobe Premiere Pro or any other type of content creation, we’ve found a learning kit that covers many of the bases. No matter how little time you have, there are lessons that can help you launch a YouTube channel, master Instagram marketing, and more with the Digital Content Creators Masterclass.

Poco’s next smartphone confirmed to launch in this quarter

Poco Season 2

Xiaomi-backed Poco recently spun off into an independent company. At the time, it was unclear how Poco would operate without Xiaomi and the kind of devices it’ll launch as a standalone entity.

Now, in a series of interviews with Gadgets 360 and Hindustan Times (HT) , Poco India’s General Manager, C Manmohan has revealed what’s in store for the company and its consumers.

When is the next Poco phone coming?

Manmohan has confirmed that Poco’s next smartphone will launch as early as this quarter. That means we can expect a successor to the Poco F1 by March this year. The company has already started teasing a Season 2 for Poco, hinting at the imminent launch of the new device.

Related: The next Poco device could be a rebranded Redmi K30

As per Manmohan, the brand will stick to its core philosophy of offering a value-for-money proposition. He reportedly said that the next Poco phone will feature a “top-end SoC” and a “large amount of RAM”.

What about the phone’s software?

The upcoming Poco phone and its successors will continue to use MIUI for Poco. “Some of my Poco fans say that it is much more stock Android-ish,” Manmohan told Gadgets 360.

“So essentially, we are kind of, leveraging that and with our Poco fans feedback and the community feedback, we’ll work towards making it much more better and better,” he added.

Will Poco share resources with Xiaomi?

The Poco India GM confirmed that the company will use some of Xiaomi’s resources for the time being.

Speaking to HT he said that the Poco would leverage Xiaomi’s supply chain and after sales resources. It will pay for Xiaomi’s services and have its own sales, marketing, and product teams.

He also admitted that Poco will compete with Mi and Redmi in the market. However, the company is yet to decide the price segment in which it’ll operate.

What about launching Poco phones globally?

Poco’s comeback plans are currently limited to India. Gadgets 360 reports, “It doesn’t have any relation with the global operations of the brand Poco that is named Pocophone.”

According to Manmohan, Poco’s global launch plans are still undecided. He said, “It might take some more time for us to kind of validate that.”


What are your thoughts on Poco’s comeback strategy? Do you think it can recreate the success of the Poco F1? Do you have a wish list for the next Poco smartphone? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Looking for an affordable phone? Wait for Qualcomm’s new mid-range chipsets

Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 662 and 720G Mobile Platforms Chip Case

Following the launch of the flagship Snapdragon 865 and a series of high-performance, 5G options, Qualcomm is setting its sight at overhauling its entry-level and mid-range chipset portfolio.

At an event in New Delhi, India, the company announced a range of new SoCs that focus on improving connectivity, audio, and performance. Additionally, all three chipsets gain support for India’s homegrown NavIC GPS navigation constellation. Let’s take a closer look.

Snapdragon 460

The Snapdragon 460 represents a fairly big leap for entry-level smartphones. Qualcomm claims that the use of performance cores should help it gain a 70% leap in computing power. Meanwhile, the GPU from the 600 series of chipsets finds a place on the Snapdragon 460. This should have an impact for gamers on a budget since you’ll be able eke out a few more frames on more affordable phones.

Snapdragon 460

Elsewhere, the phone has a new Spectra 340 ISP which should allow for improved imaging. The Qualcomm Spectra 340 ISP enables up to a 25MP camera or dual 16MP modules. The configuration will let OEMs opt for a triple-camera set up as well but might have to compromise on the resolution.

Qualcomm claims that the chipset is WiFi 6 ready including support for FastConnect 6100 which is essentially a subset of features that are a part of Wi-Fi 6 compliance. It remains to be seen if the Snapdragon 460 series will spearhead the adoption of affordable Wi-Fi 6 enabled smartphones.

Snapdragon 662

While the Snapdragon 460 will service the entry-level segment, I fully expect the Snapdragon 662 to become a mainstay of the mid-range segment once devices equipped with it start shipping towards the end of the year.

Snapdragon 662

From a performance perspective, this is an octa-core chipset that pairs four Cortex A73 cores clocked at up to 2Ghz with four Cortex A53 cores that can run at up to 1.8GHz. This performance and efficiency combination is similar to what we’ve already seen on the Snapdragon 660. However, the 662 gains the better Adreno 610 GPU from the Snapdragon 665 to boost its gaming cred.

Bigger changes lie on the imaging front. The Spectra 340T ISP enables mainstays like a 48MP sensor, but also allows for HEIF capture which should go a long way in reducing file sizes of images. Additionally, the ISP allows for smooth switching between a triple camera setup to enable a camera-like user experience.

Connectivity is another area where Qualcomm has made large strides while working on the Snapdragon 662. Between Bluetooth 5.1, Qualcomm TrueWireless support, you can expect more reliable connectivity and longer range with next-gen wireless earbuds. The chipset is also Wi-Fi 6 ready, though we don’t know yet if this is just Fast Connect 6100 subset or full-blown Wi-Fi 6 support.

Snapdragon 720G

The Snapdragon 720G is positioned as a premium-tier chipset that should slot in right below the Snapdragon 730 that has found duty in phones like the Redmi K30.

Snapdragon 720G

Positioned as an upgrade from the Snapdragon 710 series, it employs dual clusters of two Cortex A76 cores paired with six Cortex A55 cores. Combined with an improved Adreno 618 GPU, users can expect a significant leap in day-to-day as well as gaming performance over the Snapdragon 712.

Imaging is one of the key focus areas for Qualcomm and the 720G gets a Spectra 350L ISP that enables image capture at up to 192MP as well as HEIF support. There are improvements in the AI engine as well that should improve reliability and speed of access for virtual assistants.

Connectivity too, gets a step up, with the adoption of the Fast Connect 6200 platform as well as Wi-Fi 6 support. In addition, Bluetooth 5.1 and TrueWireless Stereo support guarantee a reliable and latency-free connection with the latest generation of true wireless earphones.

What does this mean for you?

While the world looks at a 5G-future, the fact of the matter is that 4G handsets and affordable handsets remain the company’s bread and butter. The Snapdragon 460, 662 and 720G bring tangible improvements to performance, imaging and local connectivity. All three are critical features in developing markets where mobile gaming and imaging-based applications are fast turning out to be key selling points for smartphones.

Qualcomm says that Snapdragon 720G based phones should be available started Q1 2020. Unfortunately, you’ve got a long wait ahead of you if you were looking for a new entry-level phone powered by the Snapdragon 460 or 662 platform. Those will ship towards the end of 2020.

Who is BBK, the world’s second largest phone manufacturer?

Realme branding on Realme 5 and 5 Pro - Who is BBK

The smartphone has a number of major players these days, outside the familiar brands of Apple and Samsung. Huawei has been trying to cement itself as the second-largest brand, with successful pushes into Asian and European markets. But its position has been put into jeopardy due to Huawei’s ban from US markets and technology. Instead, the best-positioned contender comes from the lesser-known BBK Electronics.

BBK is a Chinese multinational corporation. It owns a number of popular brands across various consumer electronics markets, including headphones, Blu-ray players, and smartphones. It also oversees a number of major smartphone brands including one fan-favorite — Oppo, Vivo, Realme, and OnePlus.

Who is BBK?

BBK Electronics has been operating in various sections of China’s electronics industry since the 1990’s. Duan Yongping, a reclusive billionaire, spearheaded the company. After successfully generating more than 1 billion Yuan from the “Subor” gaming console, a competitor to the Nintendo Entertainment System, Duan left his position running a Chinese factory in 1995. He then started the company Bubugao, which would eventually become BBK. The company now owns factories spread over 10 hectares of land and more than 17,000 employees.

BBK Electronics began by manufacturing a range of CD, MP3, and DVD players, along with other household appliances. These appeared under a range of global brands. In 2004 Duan founded Oppo with CEO Tony Chen. Oppo built on Duan’s experience in the video market by selling DVD and Blu-ray players, before moving into the smartphone market.

Vivo was the first major BBK subsidiary. Founded by Duan and Vivo CEO Shen Wei in 2009. The first Vivo smartphones appeared in 2011 with a focus on ultra-slim form factors, while relying on celebrity endorsements to capitalize on the smartphone boom. Vivo’s core business is feature-packed mid-rangers, but has grabbed headlines in recent years with its experimental Apex concept phones and the Nex series.

Realme is a similar but much newer Oppo spin-off. It was established by Sky Li (born Bingzhong Li), previously the Vice-President of Oppo Electronics, on May 4, 2018. The brand originally appeared in China as Oppo Real back in 2010 before rebranding and entering a series of new markets, including Europe and India, in 2018 and 2019. Realme’s phones combine cutting-edge tech with affordable price tags. It even managed to snag our Best of Android 2019 award.

Duan didn’t start OnePlus either, the BBK brand that Western customers might be most familiar with. Instead, former Oppo vice president Pete Lau and co-founder Carl Pei set up the company in 2013. While OnePlus has the highest global profile of any of the BBK brands, it is still a subsidiary of Oppo, making it a subsidiary of parent company BBK too. OnePlus is also arguably the most premium brand of the bunch. However, it takes a different approach to Oppo and Vivo’s retail-based business model. OnePlus primarily targets online sales via platforms like Amazon, which has helped BBK enter European and US markets.

Second or third place, depending on who you ask

When it comes to smartphones, BBK Electronics is a big deal, even though most consumers have never heard of it. Oppo and Vivo have long been major players not just in the Chinese smartphone market, but internationally too. OnePlus and Realme are quickly adding additional markets and sales on top of the company’s Chinese stronghold.

In China, Oppo and Vivo have managed to surpass the growth rate of the once seemingly invincible Xiaomi by building a network of local stores, while its competitor focused on its efforts online. Apple and Samsung have struggled to keep pace with the cost-competitive nature of China’s homegrown mobile brands, including those in the BBK network.

On a global scale, data from CounterPoint consistently places combined BBK brand market shares in second place towards the end of 2019. At the last count, BBK moves ahead of the combined might of Huawei and Honor and is right behind Samsung in terms of global shipments and share. Apple retains its second spot during its fourth-quarter new release surge. However, it is otherwise now fourth place in the global scheme of things.

Looking at the BBK brands individually paints quite a different picture. There’s a familiar first, second, and third-ranking for Samsung, Huawei, and Apple respectively. Oppo remains BBK’s largest individual brand and is only a couple of percentage points behind Apple for third place on its own.

Global Smartphone Market Share Q3 2019

The change in fortunes over the past couple of years is mostly due to the huge growth in markets such as China and India. Chinese brands have capitalized on their home markets and their value for money proposition has played well in India and Southeast Asian markets. Combined with aggressive marketing and investments in retail networks, India’s market leader Xiaomi has started feeling the pressure. Meanwhile, Apple and Samsung, in particular, are struggling to grow their brands in these markets and are instead reliant on their more traditional but stagnant bases.

Market estimates always have some margin of error, but the data shows a close race for second between BBK and Huawei in the grander, global picture. The two aren’t very far behind market leader Samsung now either. The 2020 rankings are all to play for.

Looking forward

BBK Electronics isn’t satisfied with just having a strong lead in China. The company is battling it out with Xiaomi for the top spot in India, which remains a key growth market. Meanwhile, Realme and OnePlus are broadening the company’s horizons outside of Asia. BBK also launched another brand named ikoo a few years ago. This smartphone sub-brand leverages experience in children’s educational electronic toys to create the world’s first education handset.

By spreading itself across multiple brands, BBK has managed to tailor its products to suit various market segments. The strategy has clearly paid off in China and is quickly growing across India and now in parts of Europe too. After all, the company is hard to ignore when it’s subsidiaries are pumping out devices like the OnePlus 7T and Realme X2 Pro.
