As OPPO continues to gain ground globally, the technology developer has its sights firmly set on increasing its presence in South Africa. In just two short years, OPPO has significantly changed the mobile industry by creating affordable access to premium technology, allowing locals the opportunity to explore and experience world-class innovation.
Get ready for the Reno Experience
OPPO is expanding its product portfolio with the latest generation of Reno’s, the Reno8 and Reno8 Pro.
While OPPO is synonymous with its SuperVOOC charging and high-end camera quality, the business has been actively working towards its first self-developed imaging neural processing unit (NPU), MariSilicon X. This chip provides the new Reno8 Pro with a cutting-edge portrait video experience thanks to its unmatched, specialized image processing capacity.
The dedicated chip acts as a dedicated brain for the camera, which will enable better quality images using AI to enhance the the tone and textures of pictures taken, while building on fundamental device software that allow for continued upgrades. With this, the Portrait Expert experience allows for studio-quality images every time no matter the light, sound and movement of the surroundings.
Premium access built for local budgets
Due to the diversification of premium smartphone options since 2012 and people’s increased daily screen time, having access to a smart device has become essential. With so many options available to buyers, there are only a limited number of significant differentiators that distinguish one brand from another. OPPO intends to capitalize on its advantages in design, flash charging, photography, and collaborations.
“As we seek to bring international brilliance to our own borders, we are excited for what is to come later this year at our annual INNO Day event in December. We’re anticipating what’s to come and are eager to see how everyone uses our newest products, which are meant to improve life,” according to Avashnee Moodley, Head of Marketing at OPPO South Africa.
OPPO strengthens its position
According to GFK, OPPO, which has been present in the South African market for two years, acquired a double-digit market share in the postpaid market. This illustrates the expansion of a brand in the already crowded technological market. When OPPO decided to move here, it recognized a chance to take advantage of the special ecology of a nation that is rapidly developing in order to strengthen its technological infrastructure.
“When we launched locally, we were well aware of the difficulties and intense competition. We at OPPO develop cutting-edge technology that is built for people, and we are aware that South Africans value features that are affordable,” says Moodley.
As one of the world’s top manufacturers and designers of smartphones, OPPO has made technology development for digital opulence a top priority. OPPO is committed to re-engineering the smartphone experience, whether it be through the photography AI that particularly targets light and distortion when capturing photographs for studio grade results or enhancing infrastructure to enable 5G connectivity.
By saying that residents may anticipate a bigger product selection that provides premium, world-class technology at only a tap, OPPO teases the South African market with grand plans that are soon to be realized.
