Oppo A55, Oppo A16 Tipped to Launch in India Later This Month
Oppo A55 and Oppo A16 are launching in India soon, according to a tipster. Both the new Oppo phones are claimed to come in the country later this month. In January, Oppo launched Oppo A55 5G in China in a single 6GB + 128GB storage configuration. It is, however, unclear whether the company is launching that same 5G model in India or bringing its 4G version. Oppo in July unveiled Oppo A16 in Indonesia in 3GB + 32GB storage option.
