OPPO Mobile enters exclusive retail partnership with Dick Smith

Dick Smith will be bringing the OPPO Smartphone range to Australian consumers. Let’s take a look at the OPPO range and find out what it’s all about.

For a while now, Australians have been quite content with a small range of smartphones (Apple, Samsung, HTC and Sony). But if history repeats itself, then it would be reasonable to assume that their position at the top is transitory and sometimes all it takes is a new kid on the block to throw their hat in the ring. Well, while only relatively 'new', OPPO are entering the Australian market with the help of Dick Smith.

What exactly is OPPO and how does their range stack up with the best and brightest smartphones in Australia?

What is OPPO?

Founded in 2004, OPPO Electronics is an electronics manufacturer from Dongguan, Guangdong Province, China. Making a name for themselves with their upscaling DVD and Blu-ray players, OPPO moved into manufacturing mobile phones in 2008.

Since their debut phone, OPPO Finder, they have amassed a wide range of handsets that will be sold across 400 Dick Smith stores from July 14 2015.

It looks like we don't have any coupons at the moment.

      Hi Len,

      Thanks for your question.

      The reception range and coverage actually depend on the Network you use. If you wish to check options for service providers in your area, you may like to check this page.
