Oppo is worried about the rise of fake Find 7 and N3 smartphones
posted by Florin T. / Jan 31, 2015, 11:57 PM
Recently, Oppo's been discovering a rising number of fake Find 7 and N3 smartphones. According to SoyaCincau, 644 cases of counterfeit Oppo handsets have been reported in Malaysia alone, and the problem is likely widespread in other Asian markets (including, of course, China).
Obviously, Oppo is looking into this, and hopes to solve the issue, which, according to the company, "rips off the consumer and provides shoddy products, and we truly cannot accept any cheating cases to our customers." Oppo vows to take legal action after it finds "any unethical parties and counterfeiters."
Both the Oppo Find 7 and Oppo N3 are available in various regions around the world since last year, with the latter being the newer model (featuring a motorized rotating camera that Oppo is rather famous for).
A safe advice, if you don't want to end up owning a fake smartphone (regardless of brand) is to always buy your gear from official brand stores, or authorized resellers.

- Battery 3000 mAh

i can see a phone war starting since the chinese are now going after there own , i see another sony hack but against the fakes and it will cripple there software systems and shut them down. or governments will get involved saying they will no longer do business and ban all goods if they are not allowed to sue them. and stop the fakes. all it does is hurt the tech world fakes get out and people get the wrong idea of a os hint hint android people dont understand there are many android types low mid and high then ultra high

Your phones are being copied and sold for a lesser price because that is how you should price you phones oppo. Sell it half the price so it will not be copied.

Yes and ignore the start up costs, legal costs, price costs, advertising cost, and fme right if they might pay more for workers instead of 50cents a day workers... It is the people who buy stuff that have no regard for why it is so cheap is the problem and will continue to be the problem on all developing worlds.

Uh, no. The problem is China's culture of copying the government's reluctance to do anything about it. It was fine when it was just companies copying other nation's products, like iPhones, BMWs, etc., but now they'll start to see it hurting local companies.
