OnePlus continues its plans for growth and evolution and is now trying to target the business market.
For this, the Chinese brand is now trying to achieve certification for Android companies.
OnePlus continues to grow and present new features year after year. However, at a time when the smartphone market is starting to slow down and sales are declining, it is important to look for ways to reach new users.
For OnePlus this plan is well laid out, and the Chinese brand is preparing to attack the business market through certification for Android companies.
OnePlus attacks one of the most demanding certifications in the Android world
Created in February 2018, this program aims to create a list of smartphones that are recommended by Google for companies, thus fulfilling strict requirements of the American brand.
To belong to the program, this equipment must fulfill several rules, from which we highlight the following (see full list here):
- Android 9.0
- 2 GB of RAM
- 32 Gb of internal storage
- Over 8 hours of battery life
- Zero-touch enrollment
- App Drawer must have personal and work separator
- Security patch updates in 90 days
- Support the launch Android version, plus the next major update
Until today, 139 pieces of equipment from Google, HMD Global, Sharp, LG Motorola and Sony entering this program. However, other brands such as OnePlus, Xiaomi, OPPO and Vivo also want to complete this certification. Huawei was recently left out as a result of the US trade blockade.
For OnePlus, software requirements will not be a problem, and the software part is just more difficult. The Chinese brand is the one that most updates its equipment, however it has delayed some security patches, as is the case of the OnePlus 7T that continues with the November 2019 version.
However, with the certification objective scheduled for this year, the Chinese brand must do everything to achieve this certification that can open the doors to the more business market and take advantage of the space given by Huawei's withdrawal from this game.
