Oppo recently announced that its youth-centric sub-brand – Oppo Reno – will be coming to India this month. Two variants of the smartphone have been launched in China recently – Oppo Reno and the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition. The launch date of both these devices in the Indian market has been set to May 28, 2019. The Chinese smartphone maker is set to hold a launch event where it is expected to launch both of its devices – the Oppo Reno and the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition. But ahead of the official launch, Flipkart has made a landing/teaser page of the upcoming Oppo Reno. With the availability of the teaser page, it has been confirmed that the devices will be available on the Indian e-commerce platform, Flipkart.
In addition to this, Flipkart has mentioned the Oppo Reno smartphones under its ‘Home of Flagships’ page along with the newly launched Google Pixel 3a-series. The device listed on the platform sports a dual-rear camera setup and a full screen display. The dual-rear camera setup hints at the regular Oppo Reno smartphone instead of the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition. This could mean that the company will be bringing the regular Oppo Reno to the Indian audience and we could see the Zoom Edition version sometime later. The landing page also hasn’t mentioned the date of the actual sale or the pricing of the device.
The landing page of the Oppo Reno on Flipkart has also put a ‘Notify Me’ button which the customers can click to get more details about the handset. Once the smartphone is available for sale of pre-orders, the users will be notified, and will be able to book the device. Prior to the launch, the accessories of the Oppo Reno smartphones has also been made available on the e-commerce platform. The accessories of the Oppo Reno and the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition includes a tempered glass, leather pouch, back covers and so on. Although Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition hasn’t been put on the landing page yet, its accessories have been made available on Flipkart. This hints at the launch and availability of the device in India, but there is a possibility that the Zoom Edition variant of the device might see a later availability date than the regular Oppo Reno smartphone.
And since the Oppo Reno has been teased by Flipkart, it could mean that the device will be exclusively available on the e-commerce platform itself. For more details we will have to wait till the device launches in the Indian market next week.
