A huge crowd comprising the media, dealers from across the nation and invited guests were widely expected for the grand launch of the latest smartphone by Oppo, the new F7, also known as the Selfie Expert.
And indeed the turnout was huge. In fact, anything to with a new smartphone launch nowadays is expected to be huge, given the numerous segments of people as mentioned above invited.
However, for the Oppo F7 grand launch, there’s a reason for the huge attendance – 2/4 of them were fans of Hebe Tien, one of the 3-member troupe of Taiwanese pop group S.H.E., who has been recruited as the Oppo’s brand ambassador for Taiwan. She was joined at the launch with Oppo’s Malaysian ambassador, Neelofa.
