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.
