The Chinese OEM manufacturer, Oppo is all set to launch the Reno 3 and the Reno 3 Pro phones in the coming days. These phones will debut on December 26. However, only days before the launch of these notable phones which will come with some very attractive specifications, Oppo has launched two more devices which debut in the mid-range price segment. Now, it is worth noting that the two phones which have been recently launched in China are currently limited to that territory only. But, there is a high chance that these phones might also make their way to India. There are some differences between the Oppo A91 and the Oppo A8 and these boil down to some pricing difference between the devices as well. The Oppo A91, generally speaking, is a much better phone, specifications wise, whereas, the Oppo A8 is the device which packs budget segment specifications. Here is a detailed look at both of these newly launched Oppo devices.
