Oppo a smartphone brand has announced its sponsorship of the Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile (PUBG) championship in the Middle East and North Africa, for the upcoming PUBG Mobile x Oppo MENA Challenger Cup, which will see the region’s best players battle it out to reach the finale match, held from 29 to 30 May 2019.
Players from across the GCC, Morocco and Egypt are preparing for the semi-final elimination rounds that will take place from 12 to 23 May. Fans of esports can watch the action through a YouTube live stream from PUBG MOBILE, keeping an eye out for exclusive Oppo-themed items within the game.
When it comes to mobile gaming, not all smartphones are created equal – and Oppo has specifically designed its latest devices with this in mind.
PUBG Mobile director of operation team in the MENA region Herman Zhao, said: “PUBG Mobile is committed to provide a fun in-game environment and to support the development of a sustainable ecosystem for esports enthusiasts. Leveraging our experience in esports, we hope to bring that very expertise to the region to enhance the ever-growing mobile gaming landscape. We’re thrilled to welcome Oppo on board as a partner for the MENA regional PUBGM championship. In esport, your device is everything – and Oppo has proven yet again, with its Reno smartphone series, that it knows exactly what mobile gamers need in order to succeed. With regional teams preparing to battle it out in the coming month we’re looking forward to some exciting action.”
The newly-launched Oppo Reno Series is the world’s first mobile phone to obtain TÜV’s high-performance certification for games. Oppo Reno smartphones combine excellent software optimisation and hardware configuration to deliver an even smoother gaming experience, featuring OPPO-exclusive three-part Hyper Boost, which includes game boost, system boost, and app boost to significantly improve performance.
Oppo MEA president Andy Shi, said: “Given the popularity and competitiveness of mobile gaming in today’s world, there was a clear need to develop a smartphone that gives players the best possible experience whenever and wherever they want to play their game of choice. We believe that the new Oppo Reno Series provides players with the ideal platform on which to play PUBG Mobile; after all, when it comes to immersive games and competition, smartphone performance is equally as important as player skill.”
The Oppo Reno 10x zoom edition uses a combination of thermal gel, a graphite sheet, copper pipe liquid cooling, and a tri-cooling control to combat overheating issues often faced during long gaming sessions.
