Chinese technology brand Oppo is all set to launch its K3 smartphone in India today. Oppo K3 will be launched at an event that is scheduled for 6 pm IST and it is going to be available in Purple and Black gradient finishes. The handset was launched in China in May this year and its key highlights include a pop-up selfie camera and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The price and the availability of the Oppo K3 in India will be announced at the launch event today. The company had set up a dedicated page for Oppo K3 on Amazon India, so it can be assumed that the handset will exclusively be available via the e-commerce website and Oppo’s online store. In fact, the page on Amazon India teases all the features of Oppo K3 and will begin taking registrations of interests today prior to the launch of the smartphone.
Oppo K3 price
In China, Oppo K3 is available in three variants: 6GB RAM/64GB storage, 6GB RAM/128GB storage and 8GB RAM/256GB storage. The three variants are priced at CNY 1,599 (roughly Rs 16,100), CNY 1,899 (approximately Rs 19,100) and CNY 2,299 (around Rs 23,200). Even in India, the pricing of the device is expected to be similar. We would have to wait for a few hours before we know the official cost.
If it indeed is in the said price range, the Oppo K3 smartphone will be competing with the likes of Redmi Note 7 Pro and various devices from Samsung’s Galaxy M and Galaxy A series. The price segment is a very competitive one.
