You may have seen them over the past week in store but Global camera phone brand OPPO has now officially launched into the New Zealand market bringing its F1s, A39 and R9s smartphones to New Zealanders for the first time.
Internationally, OPPO has a reputation for delivering high-quality and exquisite design, including mobile phones and accessories, Blu-ray players and personal audio products. It is currently the world’s fourth largest smartphone brand by market share and continues to experience dramatic growth as it expands into new markets.
“We’re excited to be launching our smartphones in New Zealand. We think that New Zealanders are going to appreciate how our phones stand up to the rigors of life in Aotearoa,” said Kuan Li, Head of Marketing, OPPO New Zealand. “We launched in Australia in 2014 and within two years we were in the top tier of smartphone brands in the nation. OPPO’s innovations such as state-of-art mobile photography, VOOC Flash Charge technology and impressive design are winning over global customers. We’re confident more and more New Zealanders will realise that you can get a premium phone at a reasonable price.”
OPPO is partnering with telco 2degrees at launch, as well as entering a retail partnership with JB Hi-Fi.
“We’re really looking forward to offering OPPO in New Zealand for the first time and I think people are really going to love the range,” said Roy Ong, Chief Marketing Officer, 2degrees Mobile.
“OPPO makes high quality, high value mobiles that can be enjoyed without having to drop $1000 which I think is definitely going to attract attention – the R9s especially. Like 2degrees, OPPO is about pushing the boundaries of what’s possible so it’s great to be working with another challenger brand,” said Roy.
The full range of OPPO mobile phones will be available from today in 2degrees Mobile Stores as well as JB Hi-Fi stores.
Kuan added: “The three mobile devices we’re launching with were chosen because they fit the Kiwi lifestyle. The R9s brings premium design and performance without the price tag, the F1s is made for selfies and night shots, and the A39’s battery life is perfect for New Zealanders whether they’re living in the suburbs of Auckland or in rural Otago.”
