Many of last year's smartphones are getting price cuts this year. After Xiaomi announced a price cut on its best selling mid-range smartphone Redmi Note 4, now it seems like one of Oppo's cheapest offerings - the Oppo A71- is selling at a much lower price.
According to a renowned offline retailer, Mahesh Telecom, the handset which was launched in India back in September at Rs 12,990 is now available for as low as Rs 9,990. The price cut represents a good Rs 3,000 discount on the original MRP, and makes the phone better value-for-money than before. The new price is applicable with effect from January 24.
Offline retailers have already started selling the phone at the new price. However, the new price is not yet revised on Flipkart and Amazon India, where the Oppo smartphone is still listed at Rs 11,990, while Paytm Mall has listed the phone at Rs 12,290.
