Oppo Reno 3 Pro, Reno 2, Reno 2F, and Oppo A9 2020 are amongst the smartphones by Oppo that have received a price hike in India. The revision in the prices is corresponding to the increased GST slab on mobile phones that the government announced last month. Similar to Oppo, Xiaomi also recently announced the increment in the prices of its Mi and Redmi smartphones. Poco, which was a sub-brand of Xiaomi until January and is currently operating as a separate company, has also raised the prices of the Poco X2 to align with the raised GST.
The Oppo Reno 3 Pro that was launched just last month at the starting price of Rs. 29,990 for the 128GB storage variant has now been revised to Rs. 31,990. Similarly, the Oppo Reno 2 price in India has been increased from Rs. 36,990 to Rs. 38,990. The Oppo Reno 2Z price has also been revised and is set at Rs. 27,490, up from the earlier Rs. 25,990.
