Last week, OPPO Malaysia announced that the long-awaited OPPO R9s is finally coming to Malaysia.
For those of you who are not in the know, the new OPPO R9s features a 16MP customised SONY Rear Camera, the latest tech available for rear camera picture-taking, and Dual PDAF and aperture F/1.7 which adds momentum to R9s’ goal to make a stand in the smartphone industry.
Packing performance and usability in a lightweight and slim gadget, the OPPO R9s is said to be giant leap for the Chinese phone maker and a nod to the increasing trend in mobile photography.
Along with the announcement, OPPO Malaysia also unveiled that Malaysian TV actor Fattah Amin (of “Suri Hati Mr.Pilot” fame) is now part of the celebrity squad for the OPPO R9s, alongside social media influencer Min Chen. And that’s not all! OPPO Malaysia will also be appointing a new international ambassador to be the face of the OPPO R9s.
“Who could it be?” you ask? Well, who does it remind you of? Does that silhouette look suspiciously familiar to you? Perhaps someone of Korean heritage who goes by the Lee surname?
A quick search on Google landed us on this Facebook page, which leaked some posters of the mysterious OPPO R9s international ambassador ahead of the lanch. And yes, as most Hallyu fans would’ve immediately guessed based on the first look at the above teaser image, it’s none other than 29-year-old South Korean heartthrob, Lee Min Ho (이민호). You may recognise him from the 2009 hit K-Drama, “Boys Over Flowers” (꽃보다 남자) or more recently, “The Legend of the Blue Sea” (푸른 바다의 전설).
Lee Min Ho is no stranger to Malaysia, of course. He graced our city with his presence in March this year for the launch of KyoChon Malaysia’s Pavilion Kuala Lumpur outlet. He was also here previously for 11street Malaysia’s launch as well as last year’s innisfree Fiesta, just to name a few.
The more crucial question right now is, will Lee Min Ho be coming to Malaysia for the OPPO R9s launch on 5th January 2017?
We’ll find out soon enough!
More details to come :)
As it turns out, unfortunately, Lee Min Ho will not be attending the OPPO R9s launch in Malaysia. However, an OPPO Malaysia rep confirmed that Malaysian TV actor Fattah Amin will be at the event instead.
