OPPO’s looking to make it big Down Under with four new handset launches in Australia


OPPO is one among those manufacturers that always manage to stay in the news, and mostly for the good reasons. After announcing one of the first quad HD phones in the Find 7 earlier this year, OPPO is now eyeing the world map.

The Chinese company already has wings operating in various parts of the world. However, the Australian market is one that is largely unexplored by the Chinese, and OPPO will try to take advantage of exactly that. To make that happen, the company has launched four new handsets to mark foray — the 2K/QHD OPPO Find 7, the FHD OPPO Find 7a, the OPPO N1 mini and the OPPO Neo 5.

We’ve reviewed both, the OPPO Find 7 and the Find 7a in the past and found the phones to be great deals. On the other hand, devices like the Neo 5 present a more pocket-friendly solution to those on a budget.

Do you think OPPO has a chance in the potent Australian smartphone market?

    Do not get oppo people! You do not want to pay $499 on a phone with 4.3 jelly bean + color os is bad. If you’re looking to buy Chinese phones get other brands like xiaomi/Huawei/oneplus/meizu or even ZTE. Do not get oppo!! 🙂

    Looking at Oppo’s prices here in Australia, I’d say they have no chance. The Find 7 is priced near or above the well known brands (Samsung, Sony, LG), and being unheard of by the majority of the population they will have a tough time convincing them back an unknown (here) Chinese brand. Still cheaper to import than purchase local. They’d have more luck trying to push the Oneplusone into the Australian market.

      Find 7 is approximately $100 more expensive than LG G3 or Galaxy s5 if biting online from Kogan. So I would say no.

      Also from memory there are issues with compatibility of existing and upcoming LTE bands so again no.
