As millions of people around the world mark the Holy month of Ramadan, global technology brand, OPPO, and football superstar Mohamed Salah invite consumers in the UAE to reflect on the ‘spirit of Ramadan’ with a #CaptureTheSpirit creative video campaign. Appearing in a TV commercial, Mo Salah – the global football legend of the Arabs – reminisces about what he misses most about Ramadan back home.
For people who are away from their homes and loved ones this Ramadan, OPPO’s latest smartphone, Reno5 Pro 5G, enables users to stay connected with its imaging technology, easy to share photography features, 5G ultra-connectivity, and quick power refills with super-fast charging. Giving UAE consumers an opportunity to win the latest OPPO devices as well as get famous on social media, the #CaptureTheSpirit contest invites participants to create a short video that captures what the ‘spirit of Ramadan’ means to them. The contest will run from 19 April to 9 May 2021.
Inviting users to freely express themselves through the contest, Mohamed Salah, OPPO’s Brand Ambassador for MEA, believes that it is very difficult to be away from home during the holy month, and get to miss the familiar sights, sounds and experiences that make Ramadan so special, especially in the Arab world. Using his very own OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G smartphone, Mo Salah expresses his gratitude to technologies to help him stay connected with his homeland. Through OPPO’s #CaptureTheSpirit campaign, Mo Salah invites all his fans in the region to share their special moments so that he could re-live the experiences of his childhood through their eyes.
Fadi Abu Shamat, Director of Strategy and Development at OPPO Middle East and Africa said, “As we wish everyone Ramadan Mubarak, we join all our fans in reflecting on the Ramadan values of kindness, mercy and generosity. Values that are reflected in our relentless pursuit of virtuous innovation for the benefit of humanity. While the global pandemic has kept families away from each other, our #CaptureTheSpirit campaign with Mohamed Salah encourages people to picture life together and use technology to reach out and stay close to the people they care about during the Holy month of Ramadan.”
The #CaptureTheSpirit contest encapsulates the essence of OPPO’s latest Reno5 Series of smartphones that has established itself as the all-scene photography expert, delivering superior videography and photography that captures every memory, no matter what the surroundings. The Reno5 Pro 5G’s AI-powered features allow users to savour every single moment through consistently high-quality images with optimum brightness and sharp focus even in the most challenging of circumstances. Its dual-view video enables both the front and rear cameras to work simultaneously, effortlessly stitching the shooter and the subject in the same video frame – ideal for contestants who want to remain in the action while they capture the spirit of Ramadan.
