This is something that we aim to encourage through our latest OPPO Reno smartphone series, which provides young people with the means to experience their world in a new light, through groundbreaking photography capabilities. The OPPO Week tour is an opportunity for us to inspire students, to teach them how to get the most out of their mobile photography, and to encourage them to look at the world through a new lens – through the Reno smartphone series.”
