Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oppo is investing in South Africa with local head office and a commitment to making world-leading innovations more accessible.
Oppo is the second-biggest smartphone manufacturer in China.
From today South Africans will join the 350-million people who experience technology through Oppo’s uniquely familiar and personalised user experience around the world.
Soon, South African consumers stand to benefit from the innovations like SuperVOOC rapid charging and bespoke audio tuning that Oppo has spread around the globe over the last 16 years.
“Oppo is committed to offering South African businesses and consumers the best technology experience possible and is excited to enter this vibrant market,” says Sam Zhang CEO, Oppo SA.
“This is an important moment in our collective history and through forging strong relationships with our partners, we aim to equip our society with the tools it needs to prosper.”
Bringing colour to your world
A key step to building a good relationship is getting OPPO devices into the hands of the public and this starts with smartphones. The upcoming devices offer users the best blend of premium features like a large main camera sensor, big, crisp displays and long-lasting, fast-charging batteries, but at an affordable price.
Audiophiles will also love OPPO phones because the brand’s award-winning features like fast charging batteries, stereo speakers, bespoke sound tuning and high-resolution audio support is present throughout the range. Those crowning audio achievements also extend to Oppo’s range of wireless headphones.
“We’re confident that the quality of our hardware, value-added services and our strong partnership with Google will set us apart,” explains Liam Faurie, Business Head (GTM Operations).
“Oppo is a top-five global smartphone brands in the world with incredible growth in key markets like India and Australia, I’m excited to introduce this level of quality to South Africa.”
Brand collaborations with Lamborghini and FC Barcelona are a recognition of OPPO’s excellence and premium appeal with these top-end devices slated to arrive on South African shores in the coming months.
