Last year, we saw that Huawei has launched the Ascend P7 Arsenal Edition. Well, OPPO is the latest manufacturer to release a smartphone in cooperation with a football team. The company has unveiled the R7 Plus FC Barcelona Edition in Beijing, China.
The R7 Plus FC Barcelona Edition is actually same to the original R7 Plus, which is currently out of stock in Malaysia. OPPO states that there will be only 5,000 units of the FC Barcelona Edition to be released. It is the first fan device to come out of OPPO’s three-year partnership with FC Barcelona.
The R7 Plus FC Barcelona Edition (a.k.a “Smartphone of Champions”) comes with FC Barcelona-themed wallpaper alongside its own packaging that features themed protective case and more.
