OPPO unveils eSports championship at its PUBG-themed store in Bangalore

OPPO, the selfie expert smartphone brand, has recently partnered with Tencent Games, which organises ‘PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds Mobile Campus Championship 2018’ in India.

After receiving multiple entries and a total of 10,000 teams from over 2,000 colleges, a month-long action-packed tournament finally culminated on 21 October at the first-ever PUBG-themed OPPO store in Bangalore.

Keeping in mind the growing trend of PUBG, the OPPO brand showroom has been designed like the real battleground. Along with the combat feel, consumers can now move away from the virtual world and step into the real word of PUBG by experiencing the adrenaline of the game in the store with the new OPPO F9 Pro.

Speaking on the occasion, OPPO brand director Will Yang said, “With PUBG’s massive success amongst the youngster, we are delighted to announce the revamp of our brand showroom based on PUBG. Our unique showroom has been designed to cater to the youth of India who are continuously following new and interesting trends in the market. By leveraging this partnership with Tencent Games, OPPO wants to strengthen its relationship with the youngsters as the F9 Pro is the perfect combination for the unified and unique experience.”

Packed with extraordinary features, OPPO F9 Pro acted like the perfect gear for all the gamers in this championship. The 6.3-inch bezel-less, 1080 x 2340 resolution and a super-high screen-to-body ratio of 90.8 per cent waterdrop screen helped participants achieve maximum kills to get to the finale. After intense rounds and some amazing performances leading to winner winner chicken dinner, a total of 20 teams competed at the grand finale and the ultimate winner was awarded a prize money of 0.50 million.

Along with the mega prize pool, participants were commemorated with the following awards at the revamped PUBG themed store:
