SAN JOSE, Calif., April 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: DSPG), a leading global provider of integrative wireless chipset solutions for converging communications, announced today that OPPO has integrated its SmartVoice technology into its just-announced OPPO Reno smartphone. The new phone was announced in China last week.

Breeno was announced at the last OPPO developer conference in December in Beijing as an intelligent assistant for the era of 5G in China. “As a strategic product for the future, Breeno will break the barriers between the smartphone and all other interconnected things while bringing users an integrated, smooth and intelligent experience. We are delighted to cooperate with DSP Group and integrate its always-on voice activation which enable our customers enjoy from always-on voice capabilities and still keep the battery life,” Oppo said.
Adhering to the concept of “openness, sharing and co-creation,” Wu said that Breeno will serve as a speech skill and smart service platform that will be open to developers and partners to integrate new services and devices and create an intelligent control center for connected devices.
By integrating decision making, perception, and learning skills through situational cognition and natural interaction, such as voice, Breeno will better understand the needs of the user. “Clearly OPPO is on the cutting edge of where mobile devices need to be with regard to the user experience, especially with 5G emerging,” said Elyakim. “As such, its selection of DSP Group’s SmartVoice for the Reno is further validation of our ability to improve human-machine voice interactions in microphone-equipped devices. Working with OPPO and Breeno helps ensure that voices will be heard as we move towards wider adoption of the integrated voice experience.”
