Following a high profile R15 launch, Oppo has shifted its focus to entry-level smartphones. The company announced the Oppo A1 without much fanfare. The handset is evidently an entry-level device meant to cater to the very basic needs of Oppo customers.
Not much is known about the handset but you might be happy to hear that it doesn’t feature a notch. The Oppo A1 is equipped with a 5.7-inch IPS LCD display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The handset has plenty of storage and RAM with a 4GB + 64GB configuration.
The rear is fitted with a 13MP camera and LED flash. While the front has an 8MP shooter. Moreover, the Oppo A1 doesn’t come with a fingerprint reader. Oppo has been doing this lately with some of its handsets and this new entry-level device is the latest to get that treatment. It does, however, feature Face Unlock. The package is backed by a 3,180mAh battery.
The Oppo A1 is priced 1399 Yuan or around €179 and will go on sale starting 1st April. Cherry Red and Dark Blue shades have been reported to be available. Expect more details regarding the spec-sheet to emerge soon.
