Oppo A71 (2018) has been launched in India today, even though it had been launched in Pakistan earlier. The smartphone is on sale on Flipkart already. The device is priced in India for a rate of 9,990 rupees. Oppo has also informed us that it will go on sale at Amazon and Flipkart soon.
The Oppo A7 1(2018) is available in Gold and Black color options. Oppo had cut the price of the previous Oppo A71 to 9,999 recently, so the company might be trying to recapture the budget market. The Oppo A71 was originally priced for 12,990 rupees.
Oppo claims that the latest model comes with inbuilt AI Beauty Recognition technology which identifies and beautifies certain parts of the face. Furthermore, the phone has a bokeh mode for the front camera which blurs out the surroundings. Moreover, Multi-Frame De-noising and Ultra HD capturing technology has been built on to the device. Ultra HD technology is supposed to combine the result of consecutively captured image into a single high resolution image.
“We have been leading the selfie industry in the Indian Market with our products for which we have received overwhelming appreciation from the youth. With the launch of Oppo A71(2018), equipped with AI Beauty Technology and stronger performance, we are confident to take our effors a step-ahead in our selfie journey”
-said Will Yand, Brand Director, Oppo India
The Oppo A71(2018) is powered by the power-efficient yet powerful Snapdragon 450 SoC coupled with 3GB of RAM. Oppo has added an extra 1GB of RAM as compared to the 2GB version in Pakistan, which is noteworthy. On the software side, the phone has Android 7.1 Nougat, with ColorOS 3.2 on top.
The phone has a 5.2 inch HD Display, with an unfortunate 16:9 Display. Jumping on to the shooters, the phone has a 13 MP Camera on the back with an aperture of f/2.2, aided by an LED Flash. The selfie cam sports a 5MP sensor with f/2.4 aperture.
Oppo A71(2018) has 16GB of Internal storage. However, you can expand the storage upto 256 GB via a dedicated MicroSD card slot. The handset is fueled by a 3000 mAh battery which will probably provide you 1 day of normal usage. Other features include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Blutooth, GPS, and a headphone jack.
Now, it looks like Oppo is into the specifications game with this phone, rather than the usual emphasis on selfie and whatever, Snapdragon 450 at this price range is really competitive, compared to what they used to offer previously!

There is a third camera sensor in the middle for regular snaps but it doesn’t affect the zoom range. The company representatives’ reveals that the module covers the 35mm equivalent of 15.9-159mm focal length.

To build this camera setup, 100+ R&D patients were used and was drop tested 28,000 times. The first samples will be made available in the MWC event in Barcelona. The company promised that this tech will ship to manufacturers this year.
OPPO has also made developments in its display technology with the announcement of a bigger under-display fingerprint scanner similar to the one Lin Bin of Xiaomi introduced earlier today. The new sensor boasts an area 15 times larger than the current one in OPPO R17 and can detect two fingers at same time. Though there was a similar technology with the Vivo APEX concept last year it was not market ready.
A senior OPPO executive calls the technology the new “biometric experience” and is expected to hit the markets and smartphones by the end of this year meaning the company might showcase an early OPPO R19 at MWC 2019 to be held from February 25 to February 28.
