    OPPO Named ‘Phone Manufacturer of the Year’ 2020

    -Find X2 Pro also named ‘Best Camera Phone’ for double honours at the WhistleOut Awards-

    Smartphone brand OPPO has been recognised by comparison site WhistleOut as the 2020 Phone Manufacturer of the Year - marking the second consecutive year the brand has scooped the much coveted award.

    Additionally, the Find X2 Pro was awarded ‘Best Camera Phone’ for 2020 - firmly cementing OPPO’s latest flagship among the smartphone industry’s elite when it comes to camera capabilities.

    The WhistleOut Awards recognise and highlight the companies within the telecommunications market, which have consistently provided Australians with the best products, services and plans across a range of categories. This year, the WhistleOut phone awards were judged by a team of editorial experts who looked at price, performance, battery, screen, camera, design and overall user experience of smartphones to pick the best smartphones and manufacturers of 2020.

    Alex Choros, Managing Editor at WhistleOut, believes OPPO is transforming the smartphone market and has a compelling offer for Australian consumers of all budgets.

    "OPPO gets better at making smartphones every year, and it isn't showing any signs of slowing down. This year's Find X2 Pro is arguably the Android flagship to beat right now. That's an impressive feat. However, OPPO hasn't abandoned the more affordable space either. High quality devices like the Reno2 Z and the A52 prove that OPPO can be a reliable pick whether you're looking to spend $1,599, $549, or even just $299 on a smartphone,” said Choros.

    Michael Tran, Managing Director at OPPO Australia, believes the recent award wins are a testament to just how far OPPO has come in Australia, thanks to its focus on smartphone innovation, design and customer experience.

    “To be recognised as the Best Phone Manufacturer for two consecutive years is an incredible achievement and one we’re extremely proud of. As a business we have invested billions of dollars across everything from R&D to after sales support to ensure our customers have the best products and the best user experience. It’s great to see that investment paying off.

    “The Find X2 Pro marked the return of our flagship range and it has been incredibly well received by consumers both in Australia and around the world.  We know consumers want a killer camera, immersive screen, powerful 5G performance and super fast charging. That’s exactly what the Find X2 Pro delivers,” said Tran.

    OPPO will continue to push the boundaries of smartphone design and innovation. The smartphone manufacturer recently announced its latest advancement in fast charging technology, unveiling a 125W VOOC Fast Charge, which safely, fully charges a smartphone in under 20 minutes.

    “The next 12 months are going to be really exciting for OPPO and more importantly our customers. We will continue to innovate and push the boundaries of what a smartphone can do. We will also be launching new products such as wearables and IoT devices that will expand our ecosystem and provide consumers with exciting alternatives to what’s currently available. Watch this space,” added Tran.
