Oppo has announced a budget smartphone that looks a lot like the F1.
Oppo is one of the fastest growing mobile manufacturers in the world. They’re currently at the number 4 spot, and they are probably looking into climbing up even further.
The Oppo A37 is the company’s card in the budget to mid-range market. Like Samsung, they’re taking the design from their current high-end phones – which in this case is the Oppo F1 Plus. It sports the same aluminum unibody design which is both attractive and elegant at the same time.
While certainly not top of the line, the Oppo A37 is quite good. It features a 5-inch 720p IPS 2.5D-curved display and Gorilla Glass 4 protection. There’s a Snapdragon 410 chipset powering the device, as well as 2GB of RAM, and 16GB internal storage. Oppo also managed to fit three card slots inside, which means that you can use two nano SIMs and a microSD card all at the same time.
