The Chinese smartphone company launched the beautiful-looking Oppo R17 and the Oppo R17 Pro, yesterday. Oppo revealed via its Twitter handle that the handset will go on sale on today, December 7.
Meanwhile, HMD Global too, launched its attractively priced Nokia 7.1 smartphone in India. The mid-range smartphone has a great display, a premium design, and all the mainstream specifications. Nokia has had a lot of success in India with the Nokia 6.1, Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 8 ‘Sirocco’ and so on. The Nokia 7.1, among the other Nokia handsets, sits perfectly well in the mid-range category that attracts budget-conscious Indian smartphone buyers.
