OPPO announces Alden Richards as new brand ambassador, unveils OPPO F1s Limited

OPPO unveils the new “faces” of the Selfie Expert – a limited edition (in metallic grey) of the best-selling OPPO F1s, and Alden Richards as the brand’s new endorser.

“We can’t wait to see how Alden will help us redefine our selfie-taking experiences,” said Stephen Cheng, Brand Marketing Manager of OPPO Philippines. The OPPO F1s sold more than 19,000 units in just three days after its August 2016 debut. OPPO is now the second best-selling smartphone brand in the Philippines, according to German-based market research firm GfK.

Alden is one half of AlDub (the other being Maine Mendoza), stars of the hit segment in the long-running noontime show Eat Bulaga. The P12990 OPPO F1s Selfie Expert features a 16MP front camera that takes bright selfies even in dim lighting, a fast fingerprint sensor, and a very intuitive camera UI. The F1s is now available in gold and rose gold.

Pre-order the OPPO F1s Limited Now

Concept and dealer stores nationwide will take pre-orders of the F1s Limited starting November 8 until November 11. Pre-orders can also be made through Lazada. Pre-order customers will get a VR viewer and selfie stick for free.
