As GST will be effective from 1st April, many companies have raised the pricing of their products. However, no for OPPO Malaysia. OPPO Malaysia has stated that the company will absorb GST, which means the prices of OPPO smartphones won't be increased.
It's a good news for those who are interested on OPPO product. "We take to heart on how consumers will be more concerning and considering on their spending and expenses. This is the reason why we rather absorb the 6% GST for consumers, where we earn less and give back to OPPO smartphone users as part of the company's commitment to support the cause", said William Fang, CEO OPPO Malaysia.
Meanwhile, to celebrate the company's first anniversary in Malaysia, the company will offer a few rewards to their loyal fans.
First offer to the customers would be for those purchased the OPPO R5 and RIL in the month of April, to be gifted with an iLIKE Ultra-Thin design PV leather powerbank. The powerbank weighs 89 grams only and is available in blue and pink colors.
