Chinese manufacturer Oppo has started the year 2017 on a high as it won two prestigious awards at CES.
The honor, given by International Data group (IDG), holds a special place in the consumer electronics industry. The company has been honoring top brands for the last 11 years on the basis of innovative creations and consumer satisfaction.
IDG acknowledged OPPO as the Global Top Smart Phones Brand and the Global Top Smart Connected Devices Brand for 2016-2017. The gala was held on the 6th of January.
Luma Lu, OPPO’s Technology Planning Director, who accepted the awards, said, “OPPO is extremely proud to be recognized by IDG for our commitment to bringing out innovative technologies designed to delight and inspire our users around the world.”
“In 2017, we’ll continue to commit ourselves to bringing out Smartphone that meet users’ real needs and that embody our pursuit of perfection in every detail,” he added.
Patrick Kenealy, Managing Director of IDG Ventures USA, was all praises for OPPO and acknowledged them for their success and leadership as a rising smartphone brand.
Kenealy said, “The year of 2017 will usher in the first decade of the development of smart connected devices and smartphones. We can see that with the trend of intellectualisation, smart connected devices manufacturers headed by Chinese brands are constantly accelerating transformation and upgrading and striving for innovation.”
Oppo smartphones were launched here in September last year. Since then, they have been one of the popular smartphone brands in Nepal. This success has been mostly credited to Oppo F1s’ popularity. Dubbed as a ‘selfie expert’, the device is equipped with a 16-megapixel front facing camera. It sports a 5.5-inch 720p display that is covered in Gorilla Glass 4. The Oppo F1s is currently being sold at Rs. 32,390.
