Oppo A11k has just been launched in India as the company's latest smartphone. Amid strong anti China sentiment, including protests at the company's manufacturing unit in Noida, Oppo has opted for a low key launch this time. The new phone comes with a dual rear camera setup and features a waterdrop-style display notch. The Oppo A11k also has a gradient back finish with a “3D Flowing Blaze” design. Oppo has also provided its proprietary AI Beautification for selfies as well as a dedicated Portrait Bokeh effect. The Oppo A11k is already available for purchase in the country, though the company is yet to make its announcement officially.
The Oppo A11k price in India has been set at Rs. 8,990 for the lone, 2GB RAM + 32GB storage variant. The phone is currently available for purchase through Amazon in Deep Blue and Flowing Silver colour options. Manish Khatri, owner of Mumbai-based Mahesh Telecom, a leading retail chain, confirmed to Gadgets 360 that the phone will also be available offline this week. Gadgets 360 has also reached out to Oppo for clarity on the offline availability of the Oppo A11k.
Amazon is providing a 10 percent instant discount for customers using an SBI card. The phone is also available with an exchange discount of up to Rs. 7,950 in lieu of an old handset. Furthermore, there are no-cost EMI options available on select cards.
A report suggesting its availability in the Indian market surfaced earlier this month.
