The phone will be launching soon in India and it will arrive in Nepal a few weeks after the official launch in India. An older phone, Oppo A71 with similar specs is priced at NRs. 15,990 so it’s fair to guess that the Oppo A3s price in Nepal will be around NRs. 19,000-21,000.

Oppo A3s looks like a heck of a budget smartphone; 4230mAh battery and 6.2-inch screen on a budget phone is massive. The phone is supposed to have a notch at the top like most of the smartphones these days and will feature Oppo’s AI selfie camera.
While the notch and the AI camera is not appealing, the battery certainly is eye-catching. It will be great to see how it will perform with the combination of power efficient Snapdragon 450.
Some of its competitors are Redmi 5, Vivo V7, and Oppo’s Oppo A71. With similar hardware, all of the phones mentioned above are priced under Rs. 20,000 except the Vivo V7. Once the phone makes it out, we will see how it performs against its competitors.
