Renowned mobile phone and accessories brand, OPPO, recently completed five years of operations in Sri Lanka. 

Having made its foray into the local market in 2015 primarily targeting the social media savvy millennial, OPPO has managed to elevate itself to be one of Sri Lanka’s most sought after brands, appealing to all demographics with its elaborate portfolio of affordable yet sophisticated devices. 

Commenting on the success of the brand Xinda Lanka Ltd. (OPPO Sri Lanka) CEO Bob Li said: “We are humbled by the success OPPO has achieved in the Sri Lankan market over the last five years. We thank our Customers, distributors, partners, stakeholders and especially our loyal clientele for placing their trust on us.” 

A highlight of OPPO’s tenure in Sri Lanka includes emerging the winner of title ‘Sri Lanka’s Most Popular Smartphone Brand of the Year’ in a poll conducted in 2018 by prominent local tech and mobile community Android Wedakarayo. 

OPPO broad-based its product offering over the last 5 years by introducing the F Series, Reno Series and mid-tier, entry-level phones through their A Series. OPPO is a well-loved brand endorsed heavily by Hollywood, Bollywood as well as local celebrities and influencers.

OPPO is a Global Partner of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and was a sponsor of the Cricket World Cup in 2016 and 2019.  In 2019, OPPO Sri Lanka flew its 20 best-performing branch managers and partners on an all-expenses paid tour to witness the Grand Finals live, as a token of gratitude for their hard work.

The brand holds the distinct honor of having being the first ever Asian partner of the coveted Wimbledon in 2018 and in 2019, and became a Premium Partner and the Official Smartphone of the world-renowned Roland-Garros and of the Rolex Paris Masters for three years. The same year, OPPO became the title partner of the ‘Roland-Garros Junior Wild Card Series.’

Locally, OPPO pledged Rs. 1.2 million to the COVID-19 Healthcare and Social Security Fund to assist Government’s efforts to mitigate the crisis which the brand perceives as an act of giving back to the country and community that they hold dear. 

OPPO also took necessary measures to ensure safety of partners, employees as well as customers in this regard, using their social media channels; OPPO shared periodic reminders regarding prevention measures to manage and mitigate the pandemic. 

Coinciding with the 5th year anniversary, three exciting give away promos have been planned in which users who upgrade selected OPPO models could grab an exclusive OPPO 5th Anniversary edition T-shirt, whilst every purchase of A31, A52, F15, Reno2 f, A5 2020 and A9 2020 will receive a free anniversary edition T-shirt as well.

Any customer who purchases an OPPO Phone and takes a selfie with phone box, uploads it on Facebook (public) tagging @opposrilanka, will stand a chance to win OPPO Enco Free, OPPO Enco W31, W11 and a backpack.
