Vodafone today announced a comprehensive partnership agreement with Oppo to accelerate 5G adoption in the European market.
Oppo will bring a broad range of smartphones to Vodafone’s European markets – Germany, United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Romania, Turkey and the Netherlands starting from May 2020.
As a leading smartphone brand with annual handset shipments of more than 100 million, Oppo is a natural partner for Vodafone’s leading gigabit network. The collaboration between the two companies will give consumers more choice and accelerate 5G adoption across Vodafone’s international markets.
Oppo’s broad range of products will be made available across Vodafone’s retail and online channels, spanning value-for-money handsets to industry-leading 5G flagship smartphones including the Oppo A series, Reno series and Find X series.
The two companies will jointly develop their global partnership, working together to expand the future availability of the Oppo range across Vodafone’s markets.
Alen Wu, Vice President and President of Global Sales, Oppo said, “Vodafone’s vision that ‘we connect for a better future’ aligns with Oppo’s value of ‘Benfen’ – to do the right thing and provide real value to customers. Oppo looks forward to solidifying a long-term win-win relationship with Vodafone to create a better future for our customers in the 5G era.”
Ahmed Essam, Chief Commercial Operations and Strategy Officer, Vodafone Group said, “The combination of Oppo’s state-of-the-art devices and Vodafone’s leading network will give our customers greater choice with the full potential of 5G. Vodafone’s partnership with Oppo brings together their attractive product portfolio with our growing strength in 5G to our markets across Europe and beyond.”
