Leading Vietnamese smartphone brand Mobiistar has partnered with Opera to preinstall Opera Max on selected phone models, marking the debut of Opera Software’s compression app in Vietnam. 

Opera Max is now made available exclusively on Mobiistar’s selected models, including the Lai504m, Bean414 and the recently launched Mobiistar's flagship model Prime508.

According to statistics from Opera's Skyfire unit, some 70% of videos on 2G and 3G networks in Vietnam have experienced stalling, implying that most people in Vietnam may find it challenging to watch videos through mobile networks. That rate is the second highest among Southeast Asian countries (with Myanmar taking the number one spot, with 88%).

Opera has been working with OpenSignal, the wireless network authority to benchmark subcribers quality of experience over the mobile networks worldwide. 

A growing number of Vietnamese consumers are watching videos on their phones these days. We want them to enjoy a smooth video experience on Mobiistar phones when they’re on the move. With the innovative video and data compression technology in Opera Max, Mobiistar can more easily enable a better and affordable smartphone experience. We are very proud to be the first mover in Vietnam to make Opera Max available.”

-       Carl Ngo Nguyen Kha, CEO, Mobiistar

The reach of Opera Max is spreading further and further. Following an initial launch in Europe and the USA, we expanded in recent months to bring its awesome compression power to Brazil and Russia. Now, because of Mobiistar, Opera Max will land in Vietnam before it is even available in the local Google Play store. With Opera Max preinstalled on Mobiistar handsets, users can now easily manage the mobile data usage of their apps and enjoy far less video buffering while on the go."
