Oppo’s new phone is a rebranded OPX


oppo a30

It looks like the Oppo/OnePlus phone crossovers didn’t end with the OnePlus One as a new phone launched in China appears to be just a renamed OPX.

Codenamed the Oppo A30, the new 6.9mm phone was apparently spotted at a store in Shenzhen with a price tag of 1999 Yuan. The phone in the images shares the same white and gold colouring as the Champagne edition of the OPX, the same camera placement and same CNC machining to the chassis.

In fact the only differences between the OPX and the new Oppo A30 are that the Oppo runs ColourOS and the Oppo logo.

Hardware on the OPX, er… Oppo A30, includes a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, Snapdragon 800 SoC running at 2.0Ghz, 3GB RAM, 16GB memory and 2525mAh battery.

Could Oppo’s and OnePlus’s cooperation extend to the Oppo Find 9? Is it possible that the Oppo Find 9 and upcoming OnePlus 3 are one and the same phone?

    OPPO is the principal investor in OnePlus, this is as much of a “co-operation” between the two as ZTE and Nubia. OnePlus is nothing but a shell company for Oppo. Of course the OnePlus 3 and Oppo Find 9 will look similar.

      Where was the Oppo equivalent of the OnePlus 2 though?

        Oppo launched some phones last year, but they mostly skipped their flagship until 2016, maybe because the problematic 810, and maybe because Xiaomi was going to skip until 2016 too, now that Mi5 was finally launched, we’re may see some Oppo Find 9 news.

        Oppo didn’t release a Find last year.

    1999Yuan for Snap800 and 2500mAh? Seems expensive, but that’s a classic from Oppo, isn’t it…

      Oppo tends to do that 😉

      Oppo is an interesting company. The Find series is always excellent and worth the high price tag, the rest is hit or miss (usually not even close like this example).

    I’m wondering what is taking so long with the Find 9. It has been 2 years already.

    I wouldn’t mind the price and use of SD800 if the rest of the specs were good. But they cheaped out all around on this one. The Zuk Z1 sells for the same price, they use a slightly upgraded SD801, 64GB storage, 5.5 inch display and 4100mAh battery. I could justify the price for the Zuk, not for this.

      Oppo didn’t release a Find last year. The Find 7 (One Plus One) was released in 2014. The Find 9 will be released this year (hopefully).

    I really can’t justify to buy any of Oppo’s phones. They always price their phones much higher than competing brands and their software long term support is terrible, even those that officially on Cyanogenmod support list got worse support than other brands. Maybe Oppo are for rich people that don’t mind paying extra! 😀
