Already having a manufacturing plant in Greater Noida, OPPO is in the process of setting up another large facility there to assembly completely knocked down phones. Massive and focussed brand-building though sponsorship of popular TV shows and  T20 cricket and signing up local heartthrobs - Hrithik Roshan, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone – as also aggressive pricing has helped the brand rise to the top of the charts in the smart phones market in India.

Senior officials for the region told media persons that apart from other smart phone models the exclusive store will showcase 5 main models of Oppo -- A37, A57, F1S,  F3 and the recently launched F3 Plus. Both F3 & F3 Plus come with a 16 Mega Pixel front facing dual selfie camera. F3 Plus is indeed a selfie expert which can capture a single selfie as well as a group selfie & with a 4000 mAh battery it has a very long battery back-up. All mobiles are available on live demo basis at the store, they added.
