OPPO A3 cheaper, less powerful and with more battery

In recent weeks OPPO is announcing more terminals than usual. We might think that it is because of its recent landing in Spain but the reality is that two models have arrived in our country, the R15 and the A3.

It is a variant of the latter what the company presented today, the OPPO A3s. The idea is to make a mobile with the same design and size but with lower benefits and therefore with a lower price.

OPPO A3s features

  • Display: 6.2 ″ (1520 x 720 pixels) HD + 19: 9 TFT IPS.
  • Processor: Octa Core Snapdragon 450 at 1.5 GHz.
  • RAM: 2 GB
  • Internal memory: 16 GB.
  • Rear camera: 13 Mpx sensor with LED flash and 2 Mpx support sensor
  • Front camera: 8 Mpx with f / 2.2 aperture.
  • Others: facial unlocking.
  • Connectivity: 4G, WiFi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), Bluetooth 4.2, GPS + GLONASS.
  • Android version: 8.1 (Oreo) with ColorOS 5.0.
  • Battery: 4230 mAh
  • Dimensions: 156.2 × 75.6 × 8.2 mm
  • Weight: 168 g

An elegant low-end terminal

The performance of this model puts it in the low range, with a 6.2-inch screen but HD + resolution and a Snapdragon 450 as a processor.

The internal memory is 16 GB, expandable by microSD, which we can put in one of the two SIM slots it has. Its RAM is 2 GB.

Where it stands out is in the battery, of 4230 mAh, much larger than most competitors and only matched by the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro, terminal that is undoubtedly the biggest rival.

It has no fingerprint sensor and entrusts all security to the brand's facial unlocking system.

Double camera in the low range

One of the most interesting features of this model is that it has two camera behind, one of 13 Mpx with f / 2.2 aperture and one of 2 Mpx that will allow us to use portrait mode more reliably than with a single sensor.

In front you will have another 8 Mpx, designed for selfies, with the expected modifications of OPPO in its interface, Color OS, which we analyzed recently. It will run Android 8.1 Oreo.

Price and availability

At the moment the market to which this smartphone is intended is to India, where it will directly rival the Xiaomi Redmi.

It can be purchased from July 15 at a price of Rs 10,990, About 140 euros to change.
