Oppo has just inked a deal with Australian Telco Optus to sell its recently announced Oppo R7 to its users. This is yet another step forward for Chinese manufactured smartphones as they continue to grow their footprint in the worldwide smartphone market. The Oppo R7 looks like a slick powerhouse of a phone with 3GB of RAM, 8MP front shooter, 13MP rear shooter with auto focus and anti-shake, Snapdragon 615, rapid charge, 5″ 1080p super AMOLED display and running ColorOS.
“We’re delighted to be working with Optus to bring the Oppo R7 to market. Australia has always been a nation of early adopters, and our partnership with Optus provides yet another channel for them to experience the Oppo R7 style in a flash,” Michael Tran, Oppo Australia marketing director, said.
“We’ve seen how well Oppo has done in other markets, so we’re delighted to be able to bring the device to Optus customers in Australia,” VP of mobile marketing at Optus Ben White said.
With Chinese smartphone makers actually pushing out quality well spec’ed product, it could be a concern for OEM’s like Samsung, Apple, Motorola and HTC. Oppo, Xiaomi, Huawei and OnePlus have all been pushing in on the big boys territory and the next few years will be interesting to watch.
