Chinese smartphone brand OPPO has signed Maye Musk, the mother of Elon Musk, as the global ambassador for the brand’s flagship smartphone – Find X6 Pro.
Maye is an accomplished model, appearing on Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition cover at 74 and recently attending New York Fashion Week – now leaked photos and videos of her Oppo ads have surfaced
OPPO’s flagship product was launched in March and is already recognised as the best camera smartphone in the world with top-end specifications, beating Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max and Google Pixel 7 Pro.
The 75-year-old model and dietitian will appear in a series of commercials and events to promote the Find X6 Pro, which is being touted as the best camera smartphone in the world. Photos from the first official shoot recently surfaced on the internet along with a video ad that was leaked on YouTube.
Although OPPO hasn’t officially released the commercial or pictures from the photo shoot,its move to sign Maye as a brand ambassador for the Find X6 Pro smartphone has come as a surprise to many, but the brand might want to utilise the popular Musk name as an effective promotional tool.
However, it would be unfair to conclude that was the only reason behind OPPO choosing Maye. After all, she has had an illustrious modelling career spanning over 50 years. Even beyond her relation to the world’s current richest person, Maye has all the qualities to be the face of a flagship product.
The OPPO Find X6 Pro was launched in China in March this year. The flagship product comes with top-end specifications and features in a bid to compete with the best and most expensive smartphones in the market. It has even been recognised as the world’s best camera smartphone by camera benchmarking platform Dxomark.
OPPO’s flagship device got a total camera score of 153 points in its test, beating the likes of the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max and Google Pixel 7 Pro to take the first spot. The smartphone comes with Hasselblad cameras at the back, featuring a 50MP primary sensor with OIS, a 50MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 50MP telephoto lens.
Other specifications include a 6.82-inch Amoled 120Hz display, the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 chipset and a 5,000mAh battery with 100W fast-charging support.
