Oppo expected to launch FC Barcelona edition device

By GSMArena, edited by He Lanying 01 Sep 2015

Oppo became an official partner of FC Barcelona back in June, and now it seems like the Chinese smartphone maker is preparing a special edition device to celebrate its status and capitalize on the partnership.

Oppo has posted a teaser on its Weibo page, that hints at a event to take place in China on September 8th. The numerals on the back of the two jerseys in the foreground of the teaser and certain players like Luiz Suarez, Lionel Messi, Neymar, Adriano, Jordi Alba, Marc Bartra and Pique in the background all adds up to be a teaser for the Oppo R7 Plus FC Barcelona Limited Edition.

It's supposedly going to match the 'vanilla' R7 Plus in terms of hardware, but will feature the football club's logo on its back, along with some other FC Barcelona-themed additions.

Pricing hasn't been rumored yet, nor a release date or any hints about geographic availability. It might however be safe to assume that the R7 Plus FC Barcelona Edition won't be confined to China, since the football club has incredible brand recognition across the world. And it would be odd for Oppo not to try and capitalize on that.
