Oppo F15 with 4GB RAM has been launched in India and is listed on Amazon. The phone originally launched in India in January with a single 8GB RAM, 128GB storage option but now, a new model with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage has been listed on Amazon, though it is currently unavailable. A Mumbai-based retailer also shared a poster on Twitter suggesting the price for the phone and its colour options. A report from earlier this month stated that Oppo is planning on launching a 4GB RAM variant of the Oppo F15 in India under Rs. 18,000.
As per the tweet by Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom, the 4GB + 128GB variant of the Oppo F15 is priced at Rs. 16,990. The poster in the tweet shows the phone in the two colour options that were originally launched, Lightning Black and Unicorn White, and the Blazing Blue variant seems to be missing. Notably, the Amazon listing is for the Unicorn White variant and does not show the price.
Oppo has not made an official announcement for the 4GB variant of the phone. However, a report from the beginning of July stated that the company plans on launching a 4GB variant of the Oppo F15 in India for under Rs. 18,000.
