After launching the R15 earlier this week, Oppo just released another smartphone to add to its 2018 lineup. This time around, it is a new smartphone in the A-series called the Oppo A1.
The A1 announcement is a bit weird in a way as Oppo did not release the full specs of the phone. However, what we do know is that the A1 has a 5.7-inch display of unknown resolution on the front. Internally, the phone has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
Not surprisingly, the A1 doesn’t sport any fancy dual-camera system. For the selfie camera, Oppo equipped the A1 with an 8MP camera while over at the back, there is a 13MP shooter. The A1 is powered by a 3180mAh battery, and the type of chipset or Android version that will be used on the phone is still a mystery so far.
Oddly enough, the A1 is missing a key feature that is found on almost all phones these days: a fingerprint scanner. Instead, users will have to rely on the face scanner to unlock the phone.
The Oppo A1 will be available in three colours – Dark Blue, Cherry Red, and White. Oppo will start selling the A1 in China starting from 1 April, and it retails at CNY1399, which is around RM800.
