Roadshows, activities, and freebies greet customers on OPPO F5’s first day of sale

The OPPO F5, the company’s first 18:9 phone with AI beautification and facial unlock, had its first day of sale last November 5, 2017. On that day, OPPO held carnival roadshows at SM City North EDSA and SM Megamall with OPPO influencers Alex Gonzaga, Ronnie Alonte, Coleen Garcia, and Sanya Lopez in attendance. Customers were treated to activities and freebies OPPO had prepared. It was also the first day customers could experience the OPPO F5’s crisp FHD+ 6-inch display, fluid performance, and cameras backed up with artificial intelligence, fast facial unlock, aimed at highlighting a more photogenic you. On the same day, OPPO also unveiled their new concept stores at SM City North EDSA Annex and SM Megamall.
