OPPO unveils its first 5G smartphone in the GCC

OPPO is gearing up to launch its first commercially-ready 5G smartphone in the GCC.

Combining the next generation connectivity of 5G with the power of OPPO’s premium Reno series, the OPPO Reno 5G is now available, available exclusively from Etisalat stores and online through Etisalat’s eShop, before its wide release on September 29th.

Andy Shi, President, OPPO, Middle East and Africa said: “The Reno 5G continues our breakthrough Reno series by adding an additional element to the premium line – the power of 5G. With next generation connectivity, the Reno 5G will allow users to experience the world around them in even more new ways, from faster downloads to seamless gaming, buffer-free streaming and much more. OPPO Reno and 5G are the perfect combination for anyone looking for a smartphone to keep up with their adventurous lives.”

OPPO is a pioneer in 5G smartphones and connectivity; the company is a key contributor to the standardization of 5G, and successfully completed 5G internet access for the first time in October 2018, laying a solid foundation for the launch of the Reno 5G smartphone.

OPPO is investing substantially in the Gulf region, having shifted their MENA headquarters from Cairo to Dubai this year, and launched local operations in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The company had launched its “5G Landing Project” with leading operator partners in the GCC earlier this year to accelerate the commercialization of 5G products and services worldwide.

The Reno 5G is now available at AED 3,699 from Etisalat, and from major retailers from September 29th. Available colours will include Jet Black and Ocean Green.
