Oppo A3 has just been made official and you can consider it a sort of affordable version of the R15. Indeed, its specs sheet is not so different from the latest Oppo release, and neither is its design. The handset comes with an incredibly high screen-to-body ratio and ultra-narrow bezels on each side.
The design of the Oppo A3 is pretty much similar to that of the Oppo F7 with the device boasting a plastic back that looks like a glass panel. It rocks a 6.2-inch Full HD+ display with an aspect ratio of 19:9 and 2280 x 1080 pixels resolution. It’s powered by the MediaTek Helio P60 (also known as MediaTek MT6771) SoC built on the 12nm manufacturing process. Graphics in the smartphone are taken care by ARM Mali-G72 MP3 GPU.
The 4 GB of RAM might not be unheard of on a mid-range model, but the 128 GB storage is quite rare for these devices. As far as camera setups are concerned, the A3 only integrates a single 16 MP sensor on the back and an 8 MP one on the front.
Due to its large screen, the A3 weighs in at 0.33 lbs, but Oppo was kind enough to supply a 3,400 mAh battery. The back glass case features an interesting angular design and will be available in black, silver, pink and red. The phone will be running Android 8.1 out of the box, together with Oppo’s Color OS 5.0 launcher.
The Oppo A3 price has been set at CNY 2,099 (roughly Rs. 22,100) and it is available to buy already. The company is touting a special introduction price of CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 21,000). It will be available in Black, Pink, Red, and Silver colour variants.
