Oppo has increased the price of some of its smartphones in India. A slew of smartphones in the company’s budget and mid-range portfolio have reportedly witnessed an increase of up to Rs. 1,000. As of now, there is no word regarding the reason for the price hike but it looks like it is due to the higher manufacturing costs that many OEMs are likely to incur due to the ongoing crisis for chipsets supply.
Notably, the revised pricing will be reflected across all online retailers in the country. We can expect the updated pricing to be reflected soon for all buyers across the country. The new price list for Oppo smartphones – Oppo A11k, Oppo A53s, Oppo A15, Oppo A15s, and Oppo F19 has been listed by the Twitter-based tipster Abhishek Yadav.
