OPPO uncovers the ultimate artistic collaboration with new OPPO Find X2 Series
Launch of OPPO’s new 5G flagship handsets features exclusive musical collaboration with Grammy-nominated artist Nao, captured with the OPPO Find X2 Series
The OPPO Find X2 Series, featuring the best smartphone screen on the market and top-notch 5G performance, are now available for pre-order in the UK – with addition of new OPPO Find X2 Neo and OPPO Find X2 Lite
London, UK – 27th May 2020 – At an exclusive virtual launch event featuring a musical collaboration with Grammy-nominated R&B artist Nao, OPPO today announced the availability of its flagship OPPO Find X2 series in the UK—including the addition of two new handsets to the series, the OPPO Find X2 Neo and OPPO Find X2 Lite.
The online launch features a unique artistic collaboration between Nao and the Kaleidoscope Orchestra, a musical collective of young classically-trained musicians from Manchester and London who have taken on the challenge of reimagining one of Nao’s top hit songs, ‘Another Lifetime’ (originally from her 2018 album Saturn), and performing it jointly with Nao in a virtual orchestral ensemble.
The whole collaboration between the artists—from creative conception and planning to the performance, recording and editing of the remix—was captured and shared using the OPPO Find X2 Pro, with Nao and the Kaleidoscope members all collaborating remotely during lockdown. The result: A unique coming together of musical talent through technology, showing the innovative use of classical music concepts to remake Nao’s soulful hit as people have never heard it.
“We are privileged to be working with Nao and the wonderful Kaleidoscope Orchestra on their collaboration powered by the Find X2 Series. We wanted to put the Find X2 to the test to create a one-of a kind musical experience using the phone itself. What came out is a unique piece of work that bridges the gap between musical genres in innovative ways, and takes creativity and collaboration to a new level,” said Kevin Cho, Managing Director, OPPO Mobile UK.
“With this launch we’re celebrating new ways to connect, collaborate and create together using mobile technology – something that is now taken to a whole new level with 5G. Today we’re thrilled to be bringing the Find X2 series—with its brilliant screen, professional-grade camera capabilities and full 5G power—to the hands of all of our UK customers so that they can uncover their creative potential in new ways.”
"I'd been wanting to do something interesting remotely since the lockdown began so when OPPO came to me asking if I could do anything with their new phone I thought it would be a good opportunity for collaboration. I've always loved arranging and performing my songs in different ways and what Steve and his orchestra have been doing on YouTube recently really inspired me so it was great to bring our two worlds together. I hope everyone enjoys listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it,” said Nao.
