Chinese smartphone maker Oppo is now reportedly offering a 128GB storage option of the F9 Pro, which was launched in August this year. At the time of launch, the phone came with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, but Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom suggests that there is now stock of the 128GB variant of the phone as well. According to a tweet by the retailer, the 128GB version will sell for Rs 25,990, up from the Rs 23,990 price tag for the 64GB variant.
The Oppo F9 Pro is itself the higher variant as compared to the Rs 19,990 Oppo F9, which sports 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 16-megapixel front camera, and no VOOC fast charging. Although Oppo does sell its smartphones online, the bulk of the brand’s success in India is credited to its superior offline dealer network. Most Oppo phones are sold offline, where customers are able to try out the devices before buying. For that reason, it would make sense that stocks of the 128GB variant are already with offline retailers like Mahesh Telecom.
