OPPO N1, the first phablet from China’s OPPO, just turned into a sweeter deal for Indian folk thanks to a price cut that it received in the country along with the sleek and stylish OPPO R1.
The 5.9-inch OPPO N1 is now available for 32,990 INR, after its price was slashed down from a 37,990 INR price point in the country. The R1, on the other hand, can be yours for 24,990 INR, cheaper by 2,000 INR when put against the initial pricing of 26,990 INR.

With a 13 mega-pixel swivel camera, the OPPO N1 packs a decent punch thanks to a Snapdragon 600 SoC, 2GB RAM and a 3160mAh battery that sit inside the premium-built chassis. The device was the first OPPO to go on sale in India when it was launched in January this year. The R1, on the other hand, was announced a bit later with the sleek chassis and above-average camera tech being the USP.
The price cuts make the devices a bit more relevant in the price-sensitive Indian market. But, is it too little too late?
Too late…alas ..None of present Oppo models have made any impact on Indian market..it is doubtful if even Oppo 7 will be able to do much..what with Samsung galaxy
S5 dropping its price every day..now down to 35k..i.e. sub $600..Oppo simply does not have muscle in India..They have to come up with some killer product for Indian market to make large Sales..
I think I have to agree. Although I really like the quality of hardware on OPPO phones, they certainly haven’t managed to make any sort of an impact.
Oppo & Vivo are the best in terms of Hardware and build quality, as per my understanding, was waiting for their launch, since a long time. But when Oppo launched N1 at a price of 39K, R1 at 26K for MTK6682, it was insane for someone to do that, you may have a quality which is better that the most known Brands in the world, but you have a Chinese and unknown brand tag with you, so only the people who know you will buy, but what is the No. of such people, a very few. Find 7 has been price a bit at par to the expectations, I am a big Fan of Oppo but have not bought a set for me, which I was intending to but looking at the price it was not the value for money and now is the era of VFM, give a good stuff at a fair price you will succeed. Looking at R1 for 16K, N1 for 25K, Find 7a for 28K, and find 7 for 34K, if this is the price I am sure they will create a buzz or else…………….. we can simply keep on appreciating Oppo, without buying one.
