Oppo F21 Pro series India launch is set for April 12, the Chinese company revealed on Wednesday. The series is likely to comprise the regular Oppo F21 Pro as well as the Oppo F21 Pro+. Oppo has teased that the F21 Pro series will come with a unique Fibreglass-Leather design. The launch of the Oppo F21 Pro series has been in rumours for the last few months. It will succeed the Oppo F19 Pro series that debuted last year and consists of the Oppo F19 Pro and Oppo F19 Pro+.
The official Oppo India account on Twitter shared the launch date of the Oppo F21 Pro series. It will take place at 5pm on April 12, as per the company’s tweet.
Oppo has also created a microsite for the Oppo F21 Pro series that shows the design with a Fibreglass-Leather back. It also shows that the phone comes with a triple rear camera setup, with a 64-megapixel primary sensor. It is, though, unclear whether the mentioned camera setup will be available across the Oppo F21 Pro series or limited to a specific model.
Separately, Oppo revealed some details about the design of the F21 Pro series through a press note. The company said that its Fiberglass-Leather design doubles as a ‘frameless’ battery cover. It took two years of research for designing the back design that is made of lychee-grain leather, which is waterproof and “heavily” wear-resistant, the company claimed.
The Oppo F21 Pro 5G is teased to be available in two colour variants, namely Rainbow Spectrum and Cosmic Black. The Cosmic Black colour option uses Oppo Glow technology to deliver a glossy design with a matte-in-hand feel that is fingerprint- and stain-resistant. However, the Rainbow Spectrum colour uses a ‘three-layer texture and a two-layer coating process to offer a rainbow-like appearance, the company said.
A recent report suggested that the Oppo F21 Pro+ would be the first model to debut in the series. However, the company is likely to introduce the regular Oppo F21 Pro alongside the top-end model.
Alongside the Oppo F21 Pro models, the standard Oppo F21 is speculated to debut shortly after the initial launch.
Oppo may showcase the Oppo F21 Pro, Oppo F21 Pro+, and the Oppo F21 at the time of its F21 Pro series launch next month.
Interestingly, the rumour mill has suggested the development of the Oppo F21 Pro since at least September 2020. The company has, though, not yet provided any formal details about the phone.
Given Oppo’s historical records, we can safely expect the company to tease the specifications of the F21 Pro series in the days ahead of its formal launch.
