We’ve talked about how difficult it is to get your hands on a Chinese-manufactured device that has limited market availability in these past few days, which includes several brands such as, Huawei, Oppo, and XiaoMi. But today our focus goes to Oppo as the China-based manufacturer just made one huge step into setting it’s foot in the west.
Well, by west i don’t mean Europe or the US, but closer – India.
Oppo and Amazon India just signed a deal that will bring Oppo devices officially to India. That means no more extra fees for shipping, customs, etc. And while Oppo does have physical stores throughout India, having Amazon sell it’s devices online will be a lot more convenient not just for the consumers, but for Oppo as well.
Tom Lu, CEO of Oppo Mobile India stated that Oppo want it’s Indian consumers to be able to buy OPPO smartphones from every nook and corner of the country, and Amazon India is the best way to do just that. The CEO also added that this would also make Oppo a lot more competitive with the likes of Samsung, which do sell it’s devices in India, but at an inflated cost – which suggests that Oppo will sell it’s devices carrying the same price tag as it does in China.
A huge pat on the back at Oppo for this one, and let’s hope that XiaoMi, Huawei, and other up and coming Chinese manufacturers follow Oppo’s initiative to bring quality Chinese phones in the west.
