Talking to media during the launch ceremony in Singapore Sky Li, General Manager of OPPO’s overseas mobile phone business said:

“At OPPO, we firmly believe that our customers deserve a product that is specially designed for them. Design matters because it transforms technology from a tool into an essential part of our day to day life. OPPO’s N3 was built and designed with our users in mind. We took what our users loved about the N1 and made it even better. The N3 is a perfect demonstration of our commitment to design and innovation.”


“This phone (Oppo R5) has been developed with the end user in mind. We used cutting edge manufacturing techniques to create a phone that fits perfectly into the users’ hands, and that feels incredible. The frame has been forged nine times and then finished by hand to give a perfect sheen and feel. It has a quality that is not available anywhere else in the industry.”
