Chinese-based Oppo has sponsored FC Barcelona and to celebrate this has launched a special edition red, blue and gold-plated FC Barcelona version of its R11 mobile phone, which is now available in Australia.
The limited edition smartphone costs $699 which is above the cost of its red, black or white versions ($649). Whilst the red version of the R11 launched last week, the FC Barcelona edition arrived only recently.
The FC Barcelona special edition is encrusted with an 18 carat gold-plated FC Barcelona badge on the back of the phone.
The special edition R11 boasts the same features and specifications as the original device – including a dual 20Mp/16MP camera, which can record 4K video.
Speaking of the limited edition phone, Michael Tran, Executive Director of Oppo Australia states:
“As an official partner of FC Barcelona, we’re excited to be able to give soccer fans a device that matches their passion for the game and for the sporting club. OPPO is committed to bringing the best products and experiences to Australian customers, and with over 200 tests undergone to ensure the logo, design and colour contrasts are perfect, sports fans can rest assured knowing they’ll receive the best possible product”.
Unfortunately, FC Barcelona lovers are unable to view the phone in stores, as it’s an online-only offer, and is strictly limited edition.
Football lovers can purchase the phone on JB Hi-Fi’s website.
