Rivalry in the smartphone industry does not rule out the chance of collab between the vendors.
Just now, Xiaomi announced that they with Oppo and Vivo were in an alliance in creating a file transfer service.
The protocol is now in the open beta and will be ready at the end of this month. Like other transfer features, the service allows devices from the three makers to exchange photos or documents with a simple click.
This involves MIUI, ColorOS, and FuntouchOS in combining their services. As reported by the Wechat account.
Reported from GSMArena, this file transfer service will not drain the battery nor use a 4G connection.
That’s because the file transfer service will only use a Bluetooth connection. The file transfer speeds are reported to reach 20MB / s, so the 720p standard movies will be transferred between phones in less than two minutes.
It is suspected this service will be similar to Apple’s AirDrop which allows the users to transfer files between each other.
Until now, the file transfer alliance from the Chinese vendor only has three members. Xiaomi said there are still possibilities for other smartphone vendors who want to join. There is a chance that the brands such as Realme and Redmi will also be part of the team, given their parent company is in it.
As stated in a report by Counterpoint, Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo sent more than 24% of phones in the last quarter worldwide. So, every time this tech is launched, millions of the users will be able to use it.
