The Oppo F21 Pro smartphone is on the verge of launching in India with sufficiently good specs, features, and a reasonable price tag. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming Oppo smartphone so far. The F21 Pro series will succeed the company’s well-received Oppo F19. The lineup will include two models dubbed the Oppo F21 Pro and the Oppo F21 Pro+. Furthermore, there will be a 4G, as well as a 5G-ready model for the Oppo F21 Pro. Notably, the Chinese consumer electronics giant has adopted an awe-inspiring back panel for the F21 Pro.
To recall, the Oppo F21 Pro+ made an appearance on the internet earlier this year in the form of a live image that gave us a glimpse into the handset’s rear design. Likewise, the Oppo F21 Pro has been subject to a lot of speculations lately. The word on the street is that it will be the first smartphone to come with a Fiberglass leather back panel. As a result, the phone will be thinner and lighter. Aside from this, its boxy design is quite premium. If rumors prove to be true, the 4G and 5G models will pack Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets.
Moreover, they will support 33W fast charging. Oppo hasn’t shied away from showing off the design of its upcoming F21 Pro phone. The boxy design has flat edges that look similar to the new iPhones. The rear panel has a Fiberglass leather finish. According to the company, engineers spent two years fine-tuning the base material, which is the lychee grain leather. Furthermore, this leather material is reportedly capable of withstanding wear and tear. For optics, the rear panel houses three cameras inside a rectangular module.
