Oppo premieres documentary series based on its “Inspiration Ahead” theme

Oppo is gearing up to celebrate its 18th anniversary this month. To go with the celebrations, the company “a series of short documentaries profiling its employees through the Oppo’s Inspiring People series.”

“Inspiration Ahead means showing confidence and poise when we are moving forward. It encourages us to remain resolved and graceful as we brave the storm and break the stagnation,” Oppo’s Vice President and President of Global Marketing says in a press statement.

For those keeping the count, we first encountered the “Inspiration Ahead” tag with the unveiling of ColorOS 13, a month ago. However, it had been in existence for a few months by that time, featuring prominently in the launch of the Find X5.

The four short documentaries comprise what Oppo is calling “inspiration women”, namely:

  • Saritha Bandaru
  • Dan Amarieri
  • Hong Li
  • Sheng Cheng

The four women, who are Oppo employees in various arms of the company and its subsidiaries, have, to some extent, influenced the various experiences we get on Oppo devices.

For instance, Saritha Bandaru is an Oppo engineer who investigated the reasons why the bindi, the red coloured dot at the centre of the forehead of Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists, was disappearing from photos taking on her device and, in conjunction with the algorithm teams at the company, came up with a solution fixing it.

Her colleague, Hong Li, a senior sound designer at Oppo, is responsible for the O Relax app on Oppo devices, inspired by her own travails in Southern China.
