Oppo has cut the price of the Oppo A16k 64GB variant in Nepal again. The company first cut its price in June 2022, before the launch of the base 32GB variant.
Now, the Oppo A16k price in Nepal is Rs. 17,490 for the 4GB + 64GB variant (Rs. 500 less than before), whereas the base 3/32GB variant remains the same at Rs. 15,990. The device is available at Oppo-authorized stores across Nepal.
When the Oppo A16k debuted in Nepal in April 2022, only the 4GB RAM variant with 64GB storage was available. Then in June, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer launched the 3/32GB variant in the country.
Initially, the 4GB variant was priced at Rs. 19,990, but in early June, the company dropped the price by Rs. 2,000 — and now again by Rs. 500.
