Last month, OPPO has officially launched the OPPO R11 FCB limited edition smartphone in China and a couple of new color options for the OPPO F3 in India. In the next few of days, the company will launch a new smartphone in the Indian market called OPPO A71. It will be retailing at Rs. 12,490 and will be sold via offline stores across the country. While the device lacks powerful specifications as seen on the Xiaomi or the Motorola smartphones, it comes with the metal built body and includes decent specifications.

It comes with a 5.2-inch TFT display with HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution. Under the hood, the OPPO A71 houses the 64-bit MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and Mali T860 MP2 GPU. There is a3GB of RAM which should be good enough for playing graphics intensive games or split-screen multitasking. Though there is just 16GB of internal storage, it additionally comes with a dedicated MicroSD card for further expansion of storage. The smartphone runs on Android 7.1 Nougat based Color OS 3.1 out of the box.

Coming to the cameras, the OPPO A71 sports a 13MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, PDAF, and LED flash. For selfies, the company is offering a 5MP front camera with f/2.4 aperture. It supports dual SIM dual standby and includes connectivity options like 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, USB OTG, 3.5mm audio jack, and MicroUSB 2.0 port. It even includes the sensors like e-compass, light, distance, and G-sensor. Beneath the display are the three navigation buttons for multi tasking, home, and back (left to right).

With all these specifications, the device is backed by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery that will give at least a day long usage. The power button is on the right edge, while the volume rocker is placed on the left edge. It measures 148.1 x 73.8 x 7.6 mm and weighs 137 grams. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!

    OPPO CANT BEAT XIAOMI SMARTPHONES. ACTUALLY OPPO IS WASTING ITS MONEY ON PROMOTION NOT ON VALUE OF PRODUCT. THATS WHY IT CANT MATCH TO XIAOMI.
