Oppo A7 was recently launched in Nepal and China, and is a mid-segment smartphone with dual cameras and a gradient design. Soon after, the company began teasing the India launch of the smartphone. For now, we don't have a confirmed launch date of the smartphone. But ahead of that, an established Mumbai-based retailer has revealed the Oppo A7 price in India. To recall, the Oppo A7's biggest highlights are its 4,230mAh battery, its dual rear camera setup, and large 6.2-inch display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. It also features a contoured finish on its body, and will be available in Glaring Gold and Glaze Blue colour variants.
According to Mahesh Telecom, the Oppo A7 price in India will be set at Rs. 16,990, though for now it is unclear which variant the retailer is referring to. The Oppo India site lists two variants of the Oppo A7 - 3GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage and 4GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage.
