Oppo just announced its latest budget smartphone in India, dubbed A3s. As it turns out it’s not an entirely new device, but merely a re-branded Oppo A5.
The Oppo A3s is built around a 6.2-inch IPS display with 720 x 1520 pixel resolution and tall 19:9 aspect ratio. Oppo calls it FullView display and boasts 88.8% screen-to-body ratio, although that’s probably not factoring in the notch.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 450 SoC drives those pixels with the help of 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage.
The A3s offers a 13MP main camera with f/2.2 aperture on the back, coupled with a secondary 2MP unit for depth sensing. The front snapper is 8MP with f/2.2 aperture and supports AI Beauty effects.
The phone is powered by a generous 4,230 mAh battery and runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with Oppo’s own Color OS 5.1 skin on top.
The Oppo A3s will be made available through Amazon.in, Flipkart and PayTM as well as offline stores from July 15. The asking price will be INR 10,990 ($160).
