Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oppo is set to launch its new budget phone K3 in India following its debut in China.
The launch of the smartphone was confirmed by a dedicated teaser page on Amazon India, which indicates that it might be officially launched in India by the end of this month, news portal GSM Arena reported on Friday.
The device comes with a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 10801 x 2340 pixels and carries an aspect ratio of 19:5:9 without any notch design on the display.
Under the hood, the smartphone is juiced by Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, clubbed with an 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage.
The smartphone sports a dual camera setup with the combination of a 16MP + 2MP camera sensor with an LED flash. At the front, there is a 16MP camera.
The phone is fuelled by a 3,765 mAh non-removable battery.
A U.S. government commission on Wednesday faulted India’s response to deadly communal riots in New Delhi and urged the government to take swift action to protect the Muslim minority.
The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, which advises the U.S. government but does not set policy, voiced “grave concern” about the violence which broke out as President Donald Trump was visiting.
“One of the essential duties of any responsible government is to provide protection and physical security for its citizens, regardless of faith,” said chairman Tony Perkins, a conservative Christian close to the Trump administration. “We urge the Indian government to take serious efforts to protect Muslims and others targeted by mob violence,” he said in a statement.
Anurima Bhargava, a commissioner appointed by Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, voiced alarm at reports that Delhi police “have not intervened in violent attacks against Muslims.” “The brutal and unchecked violence growing across Delhi cannot continue,” she said. “The Indian government must take swift action to ensure the safety of all of its citizens.”
The criticism stands in contrast to the reticence of elected U.S. leaders. Trump, asked at a news conference in Delhi about the violence, said the issue was “up to India” and praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “incredible” statements on religious freedom.
The clashes in Delhi, which have left at least 27 people dead, were triggered by protests against a citizenship law seen by critics as anti-Muslim and part of Modi’s Hindu nationalist agenda. Modi has called for calm, although witnesses said police did little to stop Hindu mobs.
His government has previously vowed to weed out “infiltrators” from India, with Home Minister Amit Shah likening undocumented immigrants to “termites. The government says the citizenship law does not target minorities but instead ensures protection for non-Muslims persecuted in neighboring countries.
The Indian foreign ministry previously reprimanded the U.S. Commission for International Religious Freedom for denouncing the citizenship law. The commission also plans a public hearing next week on how citizenship laws, including in India and Myanmar, are used to target religious minorities. (VOA)
