Chinese Phone Brand Oppo Launches In South Africa With Rejected Stock
Under siege in India due to their Chinese heritage and struggling to get traction in several Western markets Chinese brand Oppo, is now having a crack at trying to convince South Africans to buy their devices with stock rejected by Indian consumers.
The Company is expected to launch three Smartphones, the Oppo A72, A53s, and A15 on October 7th in the African Country.
ChannelNews understands that this is in part stock that was scheduled for the Indian market before the market and their carriers turned on the Chinese brand due to their Countries conflict with China on the China India border.
The Company has released a so-called teaser video which turns out to be nothing but the company’s logo with some animations.
Media organisations in South Africa have already got review units of the Oppo A72 days before the official launch.
Appearing to take the same approach as they did in Australia Oppo is launching three mid-range phones before venturing into flagship devices.
Also tipped is the A15 and A53 Oppo models.
Specifications of A53s quoted on the report suggests that the device might just be a rebadged version of the Oppo A53 that launched recently in India.
And this is evident from the company’s official teasers on its SA website. The rear panel of A53s is very similar to the A53 with triple rear cameras and fingerprint sensor in the middle of the back panel. Besides, the website also has also listed the entire specifications of the budget Enco W11 TWS according to Chinese website Gizmo China.
