The Association of Telecom Companies of Nigeria (ATCON), recently recognized global Smartphone brand OPPO, as the Emerging Smartphone Brand of the Year (2019) in collaboration with Instinct Wave at the 3rd Nigeria Tech Innovation & Telecom Awards (NTITA) which took place on Saturday the 28th of September 2019 at the Lagos Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The Nigeria Tech Innovation and Telecommunications Awards (NTITA) is one of the most celebrated industry awards, widely known as the Oscars of the ICT and Telecoms Industry attracting the top decision-makers and companies in the Nigerian Telecom and ICT Sector.
Interestingly, OPPO officially launched in Nigeria on the 26th of April, 2019 and ever since has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the top in the Nigerian smartphone industry. In just 5 months, the brand has been able to physically spread to 24 out of the 36 states in Nigeria. It has also sealed a partnership with e-commerce giants, Jumia to cater to the 36 states of Nigeria by proxy.
OPPO has been able to ensure that the same product and after-sales standards in Europe and Asia are provided to the Nigerian market, thus eliminating the common practice of “Nigerian Standard” products that are often substandard when compared to what you can find in other developed markets.
According to the Marketing Manager of OPPO Nigeria, Nengi Akinola, OPPO is in for the long haul and will remain committed to changing the narrative of the Nigerian Telecom and ICT Sector positively. “We are delighted to be recognized for our efforts in this market and we promise not to rest on our oars until every Nigerian gets the quality smartphones and services they deserve,” she concluded.
OPPO provides up to 48-hours flash repair services, phone swaps where necessary and a standard 2-year warranty on all OPPO smartphones, regardless of the price point.
