The Oppo A3 leaked in some detail, including a MediaTek Helio P20 chipset. This has now been confirmed thanks to TENAA and Geekbench results.
The phone is set to have a mid-range price – CNY 2,000 or $320/260 so this is an impressive performance per dollar. For comparison, the Oppo R15 uses the same chipset but costs at least 50% more.
A respectable Geekbench score by the Oppo A3
Plus, TENAA shows that this is a similar phone with a 6.2 screen with 18:9 aspect ratio and 1,080 x 2,160px resolution. It’s an LCD like the Oppo F7, though, not AMOLED like the R15. The device will come with 4 GB of RAM (like the Geekbench unit) or 6 GB, which will likely be tied to the storage 64 GB or 128 GB. There is a microSD slot.

Theres a single camera on the back with 16 MP resolution and a single selfie cam, 8 MP. This is the major deviation from the F7 and its 25 MP selfie camera.
No fingerprint reader is to be found on the back and, strangely, not on the front either. So we think that the selfie cam will offer face unlock instead.
The battery capacity 3,300 mAh, decent considering the Oppo A3 measures 7.8 mm thick and weighs 159 grams.
TENAA listed a similar model, PADT00. This will likely be a regional version as the specs are virtually identical.
