OPPO F21 Pro design has been officially teased by the company. It has a boxy design with flat edges, similar to the latest iPhones and a back panel that has a leather finish. It has the industry-first Fiberglass leather back panel that is claimed to make the phone thinner and lighter, yet more durable. The company says it took two years for its engineers to refine the lychee grain leather for the base material due to its “plush” feel. The leather material is said to be waterproof and is resistant to wear and tear. 

The handset has triple cameras on the back, arranged in a rectangular model. The power button is on the right, while the volume rockers could be on the left edge. It is expected to come in Orange, Rainbow Spectrum and Cosmic Black colour options. The USB Type-C port, speaker grille, primary microphone and a 3.5mm audio jack at the bottom.
