Oppo R1 To Arrive In India In The Coming Months

Oppo R1 To Arrive In India In The Coming MonthsAfter launching Oppo N1 in India couple of days back , it seems the Chinese manufacturer Oppo is slowly stepping in the emerging markets of India. As per recent reports, Oppo is planning to launch the mid-range Oppo R1 in India in coming months, sometimes in the month of March or April. Powered by a MediaTek MT6582 chipset, Oppo R1 features a 5-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 resolution, the quad-core chipset/processor clocked at 1.3GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal memory, 2,410mAh battery and has got the taste of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Like Oppo Find7 which packs an impressive hardware inside it, the Oppo R1 focuses on camera. The Oppo R1 comes with an 8MP rear-facing camera with F/2.0 wide aperture which is capable of providing best-quality images even in low-light conditions. Thus, competing with the likes of the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the  LG G2 which are capable of delivering excellent image in low-light conditions.

Besides rear-facing camera excellence, the Oppo R1 features a 5MP front-facing camera which seems to be quiet excellent comparing the likes of the leading tech giant’s flagship phones. The image excellence by rear-facing camera is delivered in the absence of flash.

Oppo R1 that become official in the end of December last year will launch in India for an expected price of 25k-30k (almost $400-$480). However, the price might be whopping high for a mid range phone especially considering the market is flooded with Chinese smartphones. Also, the Oppo R1 price tag in China is almost $410, so if the phone launches with a price of $400-500 might not be surprising to anyone.

But the Chinese manufacture might have to re -think for the price tag before the launch as customers in India will easily find the phone with better specs for similar price tag. Agree or not? Stay tuned for more updates.
