Oppo, one of the China’s most renowned brands to manufacture Android devices, has officially entered the Bangladeshi market. Starting today, a handful of devices from the acclaimed manufacturer is available for purchase from select shops in Dhaka.
Earlier, we spotted a job posting that indicated that Oppo was launching its operation in Bangladesh. We, and a lot of Oppo fans from Bangladesh, anticipated that they would have their own showrooms somewhere in Dhaka. Instead, the company has chosen to launch a few handsets through authorized dealers.
We visited Bashundhara City today and found one of the two shops that were selling Oppo smartphones officially. The Oppo Bangladesh’s Facebook fanpage wrote that two stores in Bashundhara City will be selling Oppo smartphones starting today. Sadly, they didn’t provide any address or shop number for potential customers to go to.
We spotted Oppo phones on display at Telesens, shop number 14, Block B on Level 1 at Bashundhara City. And we took a look at the Oppo smartphones that were available for purchase.

Among the Oppo smartphones available at Telesens, the lowest priced device was Oppo Joy that features a 4-inch 800 x 480 pixels display, 3 MP camera, 512 RAM and 4 GB ROM with dual-SIM card and front camera. The phone has a processor of 1.3 GHz (Cortex A7) and runs on Android 4.2.2. It is priced at BDT 10,000.
