Chinese smart phone maker Oppo has finally landed in Malaysia, offering its line up of value and performance smartphones. Malaysians who have been following smart phone trends online would probably know that Oppo is capable of creating remarkable devices such as the Oppo Find 5 which offers a 5″ Full HD display at only 6.9mm thick.
