Oppo is at it again, and this time around the Chinese-based mobile brand is launching its latest flagship smartphone- OPPO Reno 2 in the Nigeria market
The Chinese phone maker, today, launched the OPPO Reno 2, an addition to the Reno Series, and as expected, comes with all shades of uniqueness. The launch event was held at LASWA jetty, Falomo, Lagos, and was graced by top executives of the OPPO brand, alongside renown celebrity- Toke Makinwa, media houses among several others.
Opening the stage was Nengi Akinola, Marketing Manager, OPPO Nigeria. She started by acknowledging the executives as well as well-wishers who took it as their responsibility to be present at the event. She went further to acknowledge the presence of top executives including Sope Sogbesan, Product manager OPPO Nigeria; Kris Cao, Marketing Manager, OPPO Nigeria among several others.
During the event, a representative of OPPO took time to emphasize on various achievement of the brand since it established a presence in the Nigeria market, some of them includes collaborations with brands including the new partnership with Toke Makinwa make-up brand, Sponsorship for Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), Big Brother Nigeria (BBN) 2019- ‘Peper Dem’, among others. According to the brand, ‘Nigeria is a key market in OPPO blueprint’, hence it wants to become the favorite brand for everyone.
As for the specs of the flagship phone that was launched– there are a lot of interesting new features that users of the device will get to enjoy. Sope Sogbesan, Product manager OPPO Nigeria took his time to explain in detail every new thing that is about the new device. He started by emphasizing the device’s camera ability to capture 60X Zoom.
He went further to inform that the device supports unlimited creativity through a difference in a click. Tripple Lens. User-friendly Photography experience. Ultra-clear shot. Achieves higher resolution. Big sensor and OIS. Ultra Dark Mode. For Photo enthusiasts, capture large and small with a wide-angle lens. For Video, there is an Ultra Steady Mode to help you capture a better video Mode– this way, you can shoot while on motion without having to worry about shaky video.
The device also comes with a special Video Dynamic Zoom and Audio Zoom. Noise Reduction, which also implies that a subject voice in the video can be amplified during zoom in. Smart Video Editor which the company called- Solo– allows for the addition of special effects including sound, super transition, that produces a great cinematic effect at the end.
As for the structure of the device; the OPPO Reno 2 embodies an extraordinary design with a 3D Curved Body. No sharp edges. Complete grip. 6.5” Display. Amoled Panoramic Screen. Great Color standard, which is above the average.
The Phone also comes with an advanced Fingerprint Technology. Other features of the Reno 2 includes Dual- Wi-Fi function, SLA 2.0 Dual Channel Network, Network Priority for gaming. Interestingly the device will be powered by a 4000 mAh Battery which can be charged up speedily with the help of the VOOC Flash Charge 3.0.
Additionally, users will get to enjoy a full 360 degrees sound, alongside an impressive Clarity for Video via its DOLBY Video support for High-resolution HD sound. As for the Operating System, the device operates on the previous Android update- Version 9 (pie), however, I believe that can be updated, although the last security patch level was that of September, so except for a forced manual upgrade, I don’t think the device is due for the Android 10 software update yet. As for storage space, I am quite impressed with OPPO, dishing out a massive 256 GB for the flagship device.
As for the availability and pricing, Kris Cao, Marketing Manager, OPPO Nigeria told that the flagship device will sell for NGN179,000, and will be available at accredited retail outlets across the nation on the 18th of November.
