OPPO and T-Mobile have announced their collaboration on the Dutch telecom market. It’s the first time that the rapidly growing OPPO has entered into a direct partnership with a Dutch telecom partner. T-Mobile and OPPO find each other in their joint ambitions in areas such as technology and 5G.

The OPPO RX17 Pro smartphone has been exclusively added to the T-Mobile range.
Last summer, OPPO introduced its telephones in Europe, with the scoop for the Netherlands. The smartphones have been well received by the Dutch consumer. Harrison Chen, OPPO Netherlands CEO, sees the future of OPPO in the Dutch market with confidence: “I am extremely proud of this great collaboration with T-Mobile. At OPPO we want to create products that are the perfect combination of design and technology. Based on this principle, the RX17 Pro has been developed and it is our ambition to introduce more Dutch people to this device together with T-Mobile.”
