Taking selfies, or “self-portraits”, have long been equated to millennials. We usually take selfies when our makeup is on point, when our OOTD is slaying, or even when we just need a new display photo for our social media pages. But what good can a selfie bring? Aside from helping us accept our looks – flaws included, it can pave the way for us to win a brand-new phone!
OPPO, the Selfie Expert, believes that the Philippines, being named as the “selfie capital of the world” is a title that calls for a celebration. Because of this, OPPO celebrated National Selfie Day last November 30 by treating its loyal fans to a magical day at Enchanted Kingdom. They also kicked off a month-long celebration with more than 100 phones to be given away this holiday season. Check out the mechanics below, but do watch this video first:
“National Selfie Day is both a celebration and a reward to our fans for their undying loyalty and support to the brand. And what better way to celebrate this day than to share this with people that matter to them the most, their family and friends,” said Eason de Guzman, OPPO Philippines’ Public Relations Manager.
Parokya ni Edgar joined in the fun and serenaded the crowd during the culminating concert where it was also announced that a limited edition OPPO F5 6GB will be added to the F5 line-up. Ollie, OPPO’s mascot, and Enchanted Kingdom characters also dropped by to say hi to everyone.
Of course, National Selfie Day isn’t about vanity. OPPO gladly announced its partnership with Miss Possibilities, a beauty pageant for young women with special needs. Both organizations believe in redefining beauty and thus, are one in their cause in capturing the “real you” in every person. The night ended with magical fireworks display that left a smile on everyone’s faces.

Go red for the holidays
We heard that a limited edition red OPPO F5 6GB will be exclusively available at OPPO concept stores nationwide starting December 9, 2017 for P21,990! Every purchase comes with a free Olike Bluetooth speaker worth P2,990.
Why consider this? It’s carrying the latest 2.5GHz Octa-Core Processor paired with a future-ready 6GB RAM. Storage has also been bumped up to 64GB internal for more photos and videos ready to be taken with the 20MP A.I. Front Camera and 16MP Rear Camera. It comes with a dedicated tri-slot tray for two nano-sim cards – open to all networks, and a MicroSD card of up to 256GB expandable storage. Finishing tasks will also be made easier with the F5 6GB’s 3,200mAh battery for an all-day smartphone usage.
To answer a frequently asked question: Yes, OPPO F5 6GB is ideal for mobile gaming. In fact, customers are entitled to a free Joker character in Garena’s Arena of Valor with every purchase!
