Chinese smartphone maker Oppo has announced the Oppo Reno 5F smartphone in Kenya, spurring rumours of its launch in countries like India too. The device is priced at KES 31,499 (approximately Rs. 20,800) for the 8GB RAM plus 128GB storage option. The device will be sold in “Fantastic Purple” and “Fluid Black” colour options. The Oppo Reno 5F runs on a MediaTek chipset but is expected to make for a solid mid-range smartphone if it comes to India. With phones like the Redmi Note 10 series already live here, Oppo may want to get its device to Indian buyers as soon as possible.

The Oppo Reno 5F runs on the MediaTek Helio P95 chipset, with Oppo’s ColorOS 11.1 based on Android 11 out of the box.
