Chinese smartphone maker OPPO is all set to bring a new smartphone to the crowded Indian market. Ahead of that, Amazon.in has published a microsite teasing the launch of the OPPO K3 in the country. It also points to the fact the device will be offered only by the retailer. A definite launch date in the country has yet to be revealed, but we expect that to happen soon.
There isn’t much of a surprise about the Oppo K3. The device was first announced earlier in May in China and is just about now heading to India. It will most certainly retain the hardware specs of the Chinese version. Unless of course, the company decides to throw in some slight upgrade, perhaps in the camera, and SoC.
