OPPO Malaysia has recently introduced the all-new OPPO F5 at the price of RM1,289. With the launch of F5, the company had their first sale roadshow in Sunway Pyramid in Kuala Lumpur on 11 November 2017 (Saturday) with the appearance of the new F5 ‘Selfie Icon’, Eric Chou. To spread excitement to other regions, F5 ‘Product Ambassador’ Fattah Amin made his way down to Aeon Bandar Dato’ Onn in Johor Bahru while another new ‘Selfie Icon’ Min Chen made an appearance at Sunway Carnival Mall in Penang.
To add a touch of glam for this stunning new device, O-fans stood a chance to meet the Taiwanese singer Eric Chou at Sunway Pyramid. During the roadshow, Eric Chou introduced and demonstrated the new feature of the F5; the A.I. Beauty Recognition technology, which is designed to take selfie photography to a whole new level by personalizing beautification on a selfie image. The first 50 customers who purchased F5 during the roadshow received Eric Chou’s signed autograph and took selfies with him.
Eric Chou expressed, “I feel very honored to be the ‘Selfie Icon’ for F5. As a singer, I am always looking for ways to connect and have real moments with them where I am just myself. With the A.I. Beauty Recognition technology, I can take natural selfies even when I am in low light conditions. Hopefully Malaysian O-fans and users can experience the great selfie feature that the F5 has to offer. I hope there are more opportunities to collaborate with OPPO in the future”.
