Employees at a Malaysian Oppo kiosk attacked after theft of an Lenovo S860
Employees at an Oppo kiosk inside a mall in Malaysia were attacked this weekend after a shopper browsing for a smartphone was accused of shoplifting. 27-year old See Ming Ho, a salesman at the store, said that he was taking care of the shopper and the conversation had turned to pricing. See turned his back on the customer in order to give him a free gift. When he turned back around, the man was gone along with the handset that he was looking at.

The stolen phone was the Lenovo S860, which was being sold for the equivalent of $210.50 USD. When the alleged thief was later apprehended, the phone was not on his person. Later that evening, the accused criminal returned to the kiosk with a group of friends to beat up the Oppo salespeople that turned him in. He also said that the fight started because the Oppo kiosk tried to sell him a fake phone. The fisticuffs were captured on surveillance video which has since gone viral.

Is the Lenovo S860 worth risking a prison sentence to steal? The aluminum-clad phone features a 5.3-inch LCD screen, with a resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a pixel density of 277ppi. A MediaTek MT-6582 SoC is under the hood, containing a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU and a Mali-400 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of non-expandable storage. The back and front camera combo is 8MP/1.6MP and keeping the lights on is a huge 4000mAh battery. Android 4.2 is pre-installed. The phone was launched in May 2014.

The attack on the Oppo kiosk staff looks pretty intense. You can check it out along with some interviews and other information related to the incident by clicking on the video below.
