Recently there’s a lot of clone or counterfeit OPPO smartphones found in our local market. OPPO Malaysia Headquarter had received reports from service center since January this year that more than 700 OPPO smartphones that were sent to service center for warranty claim were counterfeit products!

Currently, OPPO has found several dealers including one well-known online store is involved. Legal action upon this counterfeit issue had been taken against them and all involved parties received warnings that OPPO is going to take aggressive stance within law towards this matter.

On behalf of this issue, OPPO has  released guides for OPPO consumers in order to enhance the identification and prevention of counterfeit goods in circulation.
