Oppo has unveiled the A33 smartphone in China. Priced at CNY 1,499 (approximately Rs. 15,500), the smartphone is available to buy via the company’s store in the country. The smartphone, at the time of writing however, was listed as ‘out of stock.’
The company so far has not revealed plans to launch the Oppo A33 smartphone outside China but we can expect the smartphone to launch in other markets including India soon. At this price point, the Oppo A33 can compete with Motorola Moto G (Gen 3) and Xiaomi Mi 4i.
