Oppo K3 with pop-up front camera to reportedly launch in India on 19 July

Oppo K3 succeeds the Oppo K1 that was launched as the most-affordable phone with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

In May this year, Oppo launched the Oppo K3 smartphone in China. The highlight of the smartphone was a pop-up camera at an affordable price. The smartphone was launched at a starting price of CNY 1,599 (roughly Rs 16,100).

Now, according to a report by 91Mobiles, Oppo is bringing the smartphone to the Indian market, and that could be as early as 19 July.

The smartphone was also teaser in a page by Amazon India last week, though the name of the device or launch date wasn't mentioned in the post. However, the screen-to-body ratio mentioned in the Amazon teaser and the pop-up camera pretty much gave away that the device will be Oppo K3.
