Oppo A74 5G launch in India will take place on April 20, the company has announced. Oppo's announcement regarding the launch of its upcoming 5G phone follows several leaks that pointed out the Chinese company is planning to bring the new phone to India. The Oppo A74 5G is not a new smartphone. Oppo launched it back earlier this month in Cambodia and Thailand. However, some reports suggest the Indian version of the A74 5G is going to have slightly different specifications. In fact, the specifications of this model could be very similar to that of A93 5G.
