The Chinese smartphone maker Oppo is reportedly planning to launch the Oppo A8 by next month in India. The device was first unveiled in China, back in December 2019. And now, it is tipped to arrive in India as a successor to the Oppo A7, says a report from 91Mobiles.
Citing their offline sources, 91Mobiles has further added that the phone is likely to be priced around Rs. 12,000 in the country. That said, the specifications will be more or less similar to the Chinese-spec variant of the device.
Oppo A8 Specifications
For starters, Oppo A8 is a mid-range budget phone that gets a gradient design, followed by a rear fingerprint scanner. And just like most phones in the segment, it flaunts a water-drop notch display and some decent specifications.
It comes with a 6.5-inch HD+ display with 720 x 1,600 pixels resolution. The panel further flaunts a 20:9 aspect ratio, 269ppi pixel density and an 89 per cent screen-to-body ratio.
Under the hood, the device gets powered by octa-core MediaTek Helio P35 chipset, coupled with IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU, 4GB of RAM and whopping 128GB of storage. The latter can be expanded up to 256GB through a microSD card.
For photography, it gets a triple camera setup at the rear. This includes a 12MP primary sensor, 2MP macro lens, and 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, the A8 flaunts an 8MP sensor up front.
Furthermore, the phone runs on Android 9 Pie with ColorOS 6.1 on top and uses a massive 4,230mAh battery. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 5, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, and Dual 4G VoLTE. Lastly, the phone measures 163.9 × 75.5 × 8.3mm and weighs about 180 grams.
Expected Price in India
As noted, the Oppo A8 is said to be priced around Rs. 12,000 in India. And it does seem quite true given the fact that it was launched at CNY 1,199 in China, which roughly translates to about Rs. 12,000 on conversion.
Besides, we may also see another phone from the company- Oppo F15s which could be a toned-down version of the lately unveiled F15. However, its details are yet to be known. As of now, the company hasn’t made any official announcements for either of the devices.
