Chinese smartphone maker Oppo is throwing its proverbial hat into the ring once again with the all new Oppo A3. The device surfaced out of the blue on benchmark listings Geekbench and TENAA showcasing the design and specifications.
But, what’s interesting is the fact that a fingerprint scanner is missing on it’s rear which means it will most probably come with a face unlock much like it’s predecessor Oppo A1, which was launched this March. The device is an addition in the lineup of smartphones which have adopted the iPhone X like notch.
Take a look at the model listing from TENAA:
As per the listings posted on Chinese website TENAA, the Oppo a3 is expected to come with a 6.2inch full HD screen powered by a 3300 mAh battery, which is quite a bummer considering the size of the display. Regardless, it all comes to down to how well the device is optimized for performance.
Speaking of performance, the device will run on Android Oreo 8.1 with a layer on top. On the photography side of things, the smartphone is expected to come with a 16MP camera with flash on the rear and 8MP camera on the front.The device will be available in two variants, a 4GB RAM version and 64GB RAM version, each with 64GB and 128GB of internal memory respectively.
As mentioned above, the smartphone has also been spotted on Geekbench, which revealed quite a few things. One of them being the processor. The Oppo A3 will come with a MediaTek Helio P60 (MT6771) processor clocked at 2GHz. The smartphone scored 1507 in single core performance and a whooping 5755 in multi-core.
To add to the speculation, a Chinese telecom site also confirmed the specs as well as revealed the colors.It will be available in Blue, Knight Black, Stardust Silver, Pomegranate and Soybean Meal colour, which is a handful. Last but not the least, the smartphone will be priced at CNY 1,999( around Rs.20,900).
Also take a look at the leaked user manual of the phone:
As you can see, the phone does look like the one we saw in the earlier leak, and we can wait till the phone gets launched. Also, we’re not sure if they’d be brining it to India.
