Those in India missing Iron Man, don’t worry, he will soon be on a hoarding near you, with one of the most awaited flagships of 2019: The OnePlus 7 Pro. OnePlus has just roped in Robert Downey Jr., best known for his iconic role as Iron Man in the Marvel Avengers Series, as its brand ambassador. For OnePlus, which just launched the OnePlus 7 Pro in a major event taking place in three major cities simultaneously (New York, London and Bengaluru), getting Downey Jr as the brand ambassador signals another major feat.
The latest endorsement deal with Robert Downey Jr, will only cement the company’s global premium smartphone marker image. OnePlus has managed to carve a niche for its self in the global flagship smartphone space, despite limiting itself to just two phones a year approach.
In 2018, we had seen OnePlus launch an Avengers Edition for the OnePlus 6 to celebrate the release of Infinity War and this time, the brand has gotten Downey to endorse its new OnePlus 7 Pro. OnePlus says the long-term campaign will celebrate its disruptive role in the smartphone industry and is in line with their core philosophy of ‘Never Settle’.
“We, at OnePlus believe in having a laser focus in everything we do and in doing whatever it takes to create an exceptional experience for our community. Working with Robert Downey Jr, we see that these ideologies are reflected in him as well, in his creativity and dedication. This synergy has us convinced that nobody could represent what we stand for better and we are delighted to welcome Robert Downey Jr into the OnePlus family,” Pete Lau, Founder and CEO of OnePlus, said on the partnership.
“It’s cool to see a young brand disrupting the tech landscape… I was challenged to help them create an authentic campaign based on the tenets of quality and craftsmanship, and it’s already proving to be a great fit creatively… In checking out the upcoming ‘OnePlus 7 Pro’ the attention to detail coupled with innovative design was truly impressive…,” is what Robert Downey Jr. had to say on the brand association.
OnePlus will be using campaigns with Robert Downey Jr endorsing its latest OnePlus 7 Pro across India and China, which is not surprising. India is one of the most important markets for OnePlus where is continues to dominate in the premium segment.
