The Oppo F19 and Oppo F19 Pro could launch as soon as March in India, according to the latest report. The F19 series will succeed the F17 and F17 Pro that were both launched in September 2020 in India. The Oppo F19 series has been rumoured to launch from quite some time now. Previous leaks have hinted at the presence of a 10x optical zoom camera but that certainly didn’t happen.
That said, a new report by 91Mobiles that cites industry sources says that Oppo is planning to launch the F19 and F19 Pro in India in March. Moreover, the report goes on to state that Oppo could start teasing the launch of the F19 series later this month. The company also seems to be working on the F21 series which could be announced later this year.
There is not much known about the Oppo F19 series except that it will succeed the F17 series when it launches officially. We will be keeping an eye out for any development regarding the launch of the F19 series in India.
