OPPO doesn’t want you to worry about GST

150327-oppo-no-GST-charge-smart-phones-2015

You would need to pay more for smart Phones and various electronics when GST takes effect this April 1st. Now OPPO is doing something different by offering to pay for your GST.

We are pretty sure OPPO would need to pay 6% tax and they will be absorbing it into their selling price to mitigate any price increase towards its customers. So that means there’s no change of price on their smart phones starting next week. Also this could be potential RM125 savings on 6% GST if you’re planning to get the OPPO N3 that costs RM2,098 outright.

Their current OPPO smart phone pricing are as follows:

Oppo N3 – RM2098
Oppo R5 – RM1798
Oppo Find 7 – RM1798
Oppo Find 7A – RM1398
Oppo N1 Mini – RM1198
Oppo R1L LTE – RM1098
Oppo Mirror 3 – RM898
Oppo Neo 5 LTE – RM598
Oppo Joy – RM358

So far not many manufacturers have officially responded to the upcoming GST except probably for Xiaomi which has announced a price hike for its Redmi Note 4G. Fortunately the rest of Xiaomi’s line up including their Mi Pad, Power Banks and headphones remain unchanged.
