OPPO is really trying to fill the spot in every smartphone price segment. In China, the company has quietly announced the new OPPO A1 — a smartphone pegged for the entry-level market.
The company is building too much hype on their upcoming smartphone — the OPPO F7 — that they may have played down the launch of the OPPO A1. But nonetheless, this device looks pretty interesting.
OPPO hasn’t revealed the full specs list of the device yet, but we do know what its main features.
For starters, the A1 sports a 5.7-inch S-IPS display with the now-standard 18:9 aspect ratio. The screen resolution wasn’t revealed yet, but there’s a huge chance it’s HD+.
There’s no word regarding the chipset, but they did say that it will come with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. OPPO also said that it will be equipped with a 3,180mAh battery.
And since it’s a budget-friendly device, the OPPO A1 will skip the dual-camera route. Instead, it has an 8-megapixel camera on the front and a single 13-megapixel shooter at the back. The handset also lacks a fingerprint scanner but it has the facial recognition feature for security purposes.
The OPPO A1 will be available in Cherry Red, Dark Blue, and Pearl White. It will go on sale in China starting April 1 for CNY1,399 (~Php11,500). Stay tuned as we try to get more information about this device. We’ll update this post as soon as we get it.
