Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 22 January 2020 – Leading global smart device brand, OPPO, is taking its industry-leading smartphone photography expertise to students across the UAE, as part of its OPPO Week university tour to equip the country’s youth with photography skills. The tour will visit eight universities, giving students the opportunity to learn more about capturing professional-level images with superb smartphone cameras – such as those offered by OPPO devices. Students have the chance to win prizes for their photographs, with one overall winner to be announced at the end of the tour in April.
The tour will visit Heriot-Watt University, Middlesex University, BITS Pilani Dubai, University of Wollongong Dubai, American University of Sharjah, Manipal University, SAE Institute, and Amity University Dubai.
Each leg of the tour will see OPPO spend a week at the university. Activities will include a workshop and photography competition on campus, with mobile photography techniques taught by a professional photography instructor. Students will then be able to use OPPO smartphones to take photos during OPPO Week. All photographs shared on social media will be entered into the OPPO Week photography competition, with one prize during each OPPO Week, plus an overall winner at the end of the tour.
Ethan Xue, President of OPPO Middle East and Africa (MEA), said: “OPPO believes in the power of youth and the spirit of creation – which, when combined, become an unstopped force of innovation. This is something that we aim to encourage through our latest OPPO Reno smartphone series, which provides young people with the means to experience their world in a new light, through groundbreaking photography capabilities. The OPPO Week tour is an opportunity for us to inspire students, to teach them how to get the most out of their mobile photography, and to encourage them to look at the world through a new lens – through the Reno smartphone series.”
When OPPO launched its premium Reno2 series in Q4 2019, it encouraged users to see the world from completely new perspectives. Designed to further your vision, the OPPO Reno series uses innovative technology to elevate photography and mobile entertainment to all-new heights.
The Reno2 series’ unique multi-perspective capabilities are enabled by its quad-camera setup, which includes super-stable video shooting on the go thanks to Ultra Steady Video feature, ultra-clear night shots even under a nearly-no-light condition in Ultra Dark Mode and 5x Hybrid Zoom allowing users to get much closer to a subject. The Reno2 series comes with a shark fin pop-up camera, which supports ultra-clear backlit shots and all-new AI Beauty Mode to deliver professional-quality photos.
