Oppo has increased the prices of some of its smartphone in the Indian market. Handsets from the company's budget and mid-range portfolio — Oppo A11k, Oppo A53s, Oppo A15, Oppo A15s, and Oppo F19 — have reportedly got an increase of up to Rs. 1,000. While the Chinese company hasn't issued any statement on the reason, reports suggest this could be due to the increasing manufacturing incurred by Oppo as a result of ongoing crises for chipsets in the market.

Oppo F19's 6GB RAM variant, that was reportedly priced at Rs. 17,990, now retails at Rs. 18,990. Oppo A11k was launched at a price of Rs. 8,990 in India.
