After four months of its initial release, OPPO today has finally unveiled the good-old black colour finish for their popular camera smartphone – the OPPO R9s. Also announced at the launch is that the local star, Neelofa, will be the latest ambassador for OPPO.
In case you’re unaware, when the phone first arrived at our shore, it only comes in Gold and Rose Gold. Therefore, the introduction of the black colour is welcoming as there are some consumers who prefer their phone to come in black.
While it is most unfortunate that Neelofa could not make it to the launch event, however, local supermodel – Amber Chia has made her appearance to celebrate the introduction of the new colour.
