The ZenFone Max Pro is designed in a stylish 180g-light metal body with diamond-cut edges and 2.5D-curved display glass.  At the heart of the smartphone is an advanced Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform, which combines smooth, responsive performance with the superb battery life of 5,000 mAh, and a powerful Adreno 509 GPU that is designed to support enhanced mobile gaming and browsing performance. ZenFone Max Pro handles any task easily, with performance to spare.

With its improved performance, the Adreno 509 GPU supports lifelike visuals and more efficient rendering of advanced 3D graphics.

OPPO marries high performance, A.I. technology, and chic design with Q2 2018 line-up

As part of its commitment in delivering the best customer experience, OPPO Philippines announces its lineup for Q2 2018 that is fit for consumers who demand to experience the latest smartphones with the ideal experience at every price point.

OPPO’s flagship smartphone F7, which offers 64GB and 128GB variants, was launched in the country last April and was immediately established as the brand’s best-selling device yet. It is the world’s first smartphone with a 25MP front-facing camera and A.I. Beauty Technology 2.0 that analyzes the face in more than 296 recognition spots and beautifies it in three individual zones. It also sports a 6.23” FHD+ Super Full Screen display, a 12nm Octa-Core processor with 2 dedicated A.I. cores, and a 3400mAh battery with A.I. management.

The F7 Youth, the latest addition to the F7 family, also comes equipped with A.I. technology for impressive photos as well as a Helio P60 Octa-Core processor which runs 80 percent faster than current smartphones in its price range. Consumers can enjoy its 6.0-inch FHD+ screen and sophisticated, slim body packed with 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, 3410mAh long-lasting battery, speedy facial unlock, improved navigation shortcuts, and more.

For the idealist 

With affordability in mind, the A83 range is the smartphone to look for. It combines OPPO’s signature A.I. Beauty Recognition Technology with a 5.7-inch HD+ screen, 13MP rear camera, 8MP front camera, 3180mAh battery, and a personalized speedy facial unlock function.

To date, there are three versions of the A3 varying in performance level, storage space, and price—one with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM, one with 3GB/32GB, and one with 2GB/16GB.

Affordable Seflie Expert 

Rounding up the lot is OPPO’s A71 2018 model, which is the most affordable of the group and features a 5.2-inch HD screen, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 for seamless multitasking, 3000mAh battery, 2GB RAM, and 16GB storage. Its 13MP rear camera makes use of a multi-frame denoising technology to deliver quality images despite low-light conditions, and the 5MP front camera promises detailed selfies with the option to enhance the subject further with the help of the bokeh effect.

For a relatively affordable price, users can expect to multitask seamlessly, document memories with striking photography, and enrich their busy ways of life in style with any of the OPPO smartphones they purchase.
