Leading global tech brand OPPO has landed in Mzansi and from Friday South Africans will join the 350-million people who experience technology through OPPO’s uniquely familiar and personalised user experience around the world.

Oppo says the upcoming devices offer users the best blend of premium features like a large main camera sensor and big, crisp displays and long-lasting, fast charging batteries, but at an affordable price.

The company will be entering the market with the Oppo A72, an Android 10 handset with 128GB storage and options of 4GB or 8GB RAM.

First released in April this year, the Oppo A72 available in Aurora Purple and Twilight Black will be on sale from major retailers on 7 October 2020, priced at R6 999.

The device features a 6.5″ 1080 x 2400 pixel display and 405 ppi (pixel per inch) density.

Four rear cameras include a 48MP wide angle, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP depth and 2MP black-and-white lens. The selfie camera is 16MP wide angled. The 5G edition has a scaled down camera array, with a 16MP main lens, no b/w lens, and an 8MP selfie camera, but is both thinner and lighter.

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.

Oppo SA CEO Sam Zhang says the company is committed to offering South African businesses and consumers the best technology experience possible and is excited to enter this vibrant market

“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.”

Liam Faurie, Business Head (GTM Operations) says they are confident that the quality of their hardware, value added services and strong partnership with Google will set them apart from the completion.

“OPPO is a top five global smartphone brand 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.”

OPPO aims to promote the rapid integration of cutting-edge technology with a special focus on 5G conversion and AI integration. The brand has worked with more than 50 global operators to accelerate large-scale commercialisation of 5G, and with the successful deployment of the first standalone 5G networks in the UK, providing Europe with its first 5G smartphone.

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.

The company has also forged ahead to meet the needs of users with visual, hearing and physical disabilities by optimising barrier-free accessibility functions on top of the full suite of Google Mobile Services in the latest version of OPPO ColorOS, to grant more users access to the power of technology.
