Oppo in December 2017 launched a new smartphone dubbed as Oppo A3 in China. However new reports on the web now state that the Chinese handset maker will be unveiling the A83 in India on January 17th.
91mobiles reports that the company has sent out press invites for an event in Bengaluru for the said date. While the invite does not openly state what device but the source is quite certain that it is Oppo A83 that will be unveiled at the event. Further, the report states that the device will be priced around Rs. 15,000.
Having said that, while Oppo A83 has already been launched in China we have a good idea of what the smartphone has to offer. So let's take a glimpse of what the device brings to the table.
