When it comes to smartphones, there are limited color choices. One of the reasons why would be production costs: having one variant for each color of the rainbow but with exactly the same internals can be expensive to mass produce. Another reason is for exclusivity: sure you can get the standard, typical black, but you can add a little touch of premium with a rose gold, for example.
Then there are special color variants phone makers release for special occasions, like OPPO’s Jade Green.
“We chose to imbue our popular OPPO F9 model in Jade Green in honor of the Philippines’ natural beauty, from the shores of breathtaking beaches to the deepest parts of the country’s rainforests and other natural features,” said Jane Wan, OPPO Philippines VP for Marketing. “OPPO is inspired to help work towards protecting and preserving the country’s natural beauty and is working out a partnership with Bantay Kalikasan to achieve that goal.”
The new OPPO F9 Jade Green will be available for purchase on January 12, 2019, but OPPO Philippines is offering customers the chance to be among the first to own it in the country—and without having to go through the hassle of going through numerous stores just to secure a unit.
The pre-order will start from January 5 to 11 at select 100 OPPO stores nationwide. Customers who will pre-order need only pay a deposit of P1,000.00 and will receive a free Rockspace wireless Bluetooth speaker (worth P2,990.00)! They can claim their smartphones and freebie upon paying the full amount starting January 12, 2019.
The OPPO F9 is a mobile powerhouse encased in a sleek, stylish body that features a unique Waterdrop screen. It’s the perfect smartphone companion for individuals on the go and with an active lifestyle, thanks to the VOOC Flash Charging and AI Battery Management for power that lasts the entire day.
