Chinese smartphone maker Oppo has slashed the price of the affordable A3s smartphone by Rs 1,000. Launched in July this year, the smartphone was priced at Rs 10,990, but after the price cut, it will now be available for just Rs 9,990. The news of price cut doesn’t officially come from Oppo, but from Mumbai based retailer Mahesh Telecom. The smartphone is also sold across online and offline retail stores, but at the time of filing the story, we did not notice any change in price on Amazon India, Flipkart or Paytm Mall.
Competing in the budget segment, the Oppo A3s is targeted towards the younger generation. It features a stylish design, a full screen display with a notch and dual cameras at the back. You can buy the smartphone in Red and Dark Purple colors.
