Oppo has reduced the price of its budget smartphone Oppo A12 in India. The Oppo A12 is available across both online and offline platforms, but the A-series of phones from Oppo are always aimed at the latter. The Oppo A12 was launched in India in June 2020 at a starting price of Rs 9,990. However, it received a price cut soon after bringing down the base variant price of Rs 8,990. The new Rs 500 price cut means the phone will sell for Rs 8,490. 91mobiles reported that the Oppo A91's price cut is already official in the offline market. Flipkart is selling the base variant of Oppo A12 at Rs 7,990 which could be for a limited period for its Big Saving Days sale kickstarting for Flipkart Plus members at midnight, January 19. Amazon India is still selling the Oppo A12 at old prices.
