Oppo just capped off its latest launch event in India where we got two phones – the Oppo F21 Pro and the F21 Pro 5G. The former is a rebadged Oppo Reno7 while the latter is identical to the previously announced Oppo Reno7 Z 5G
Both phones come with 6.43-inch AMOLED displays with FHD+ resolution and a standard 60Hz refresh rate. The 4G model runs on the Snapdragon 680 while the 5G variant gets the Snapdragon 695. Both are paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage which is also
expandable via microSD. Oppo F21 comes in an exclusive Fiberglass-leather option while the rest of the series gets frosted glass backs.
The rear camera setups include a 64MP main shooter alongside a 2MP microscope lens and a 2MP depth helper for the F21 Pro while the 5G model replaces the microscope cam with a 2MP monochrome sensor.
F21 Pro gets a Sony IMX709 32MP selfie cam while the F21 Pro 5G makes do with a 16MP front-facing shooter. Both phones pack 4,500 mAh batteries with 33W charging and boot Android 12 with ColorOS 12 on top.
Oppo F21 Pro retails for INR 22,999 ($300) and goes on sale from April 15. Oppo F21 Pro 5G will go for INR 26,999 ($355) on April 21.
In addition to its new phones, Oppo also announced its Enco Air 2 Pro true wireless earbuds with active noise cancelation and 12.4mm drivers. These will be priced at INR 3,499 ($46) and are coming soon.
Non sequitur! I countered a claim that has nothing to do with pricing. The claim was clear, just as the counter-claim was.
What matters is, even if you overprice your products, the question is, will people buy it?
