Oppo on Monday announced the Black colour variant of the recently launch F3 Plus selfie-focused smartphone has gone on sale in India. While the company had announced the smartphone will be available in Black and Gold colour variants back at its launch event in March, since then, only the Gold variant has been available to buy. Featuring the same price tag – Rs. 30,900 – as the Gold colour variant, the Black variant went on sale in India from Saturday, the company said.
