Oppo will create a separate brand for CyanogenMod phones. Expands Ambassador program to Eastern Europe

Oppo is one of most interesting smartphone brands to emerge from China over the past year. With its focus on design, latest specs, non-traditional features like rotating camera on N1 flagship, and readiness to experiment with 3d party ROMs like CyanogenMod , it might soon replace the ailing HTC as the most forward thinking Android OEM out there.

We already know that  Oppo will launch version of N1 running CyanogenMod ROM in Decmber. Now, Sohu IT reports that Oppo has much bigger plans for the CyanogenMod phones and has decided to create a separate internet smartphone brand for them. The team building Cyanogen phones will focus on highest possible device specs and will adapt the ROM for Chinese users. It  will be completely independent from Oppo, and will use their own marketing, sales channels and development processes.

I am not sure whether this top of the line Cyanogen Phone, we told you about a couple of days ago, is part of the new brand initiative or not. But Oppo’s ambitions to expand their product portfolio look really interesting.

Oppo Ambassadors Eastern Europe

And,  speaking of expansion. Oppo is already selling its smartphones in Western Europe, and has been using an Ambassador program to translate handset firmware into local languages. They are now expanding this program to Eastern Europe and are looking for Ambassadors in Romania, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Ukraine.
