Oppo is planning to launch three new smartphones, Oppo A12, Oppo A11k, and Oppo A52, in India "as early as next week," a report has indicated. While Oppo A12 and Oppo A52 were first launched in April this year, the Oppo A11k appears to be a new phone. All the three smartphones are said to be priced under Rs. 20,000 and with their launch, Oppo will be much better positioned in the budget smartphone segment in India.
