Oppo F5 6GB RAM variant was announced earlier this month when the handset was unveiled in the country. However, it was yet to become available for purchase, and only the 4GB RAM model was in the stores. Now, Oppo F5 (Review) 6GB variant model can be pre-ordered via Flipkart. We can expect it to become available via physical retail stores soon, just like its 4GB RAM counterpart. To recall, at the same launch earlier this month, the firm had also announced the Oppo F5 Youth will be coming to country, and it was unveiled in the Philippines over the weekend.
The Oppo F5 price in India is Rs. 24,990 for the 6GB RAM variant, and sales begin from December 1. The handset will be available to buy in Black and Red colour variants. The Red option, currently not listed on Flipkart, was launched in partnership with Vogue India on its 10th anniversary.
Launch offers on Flipkart include no-cost EMIs, up to Rs. 20,000 off on exchange, 5 percent discount with Axis Bank Buzz Credit Cards, free 3 Months Hotstar Premium Subscription, and extra 10 percent off on next Flipkart Fashion purchase for first time mobile buyers.
