Oppo is among the most innovative smartphone makers in the current market. The company recently announced an appealing concept in the form of Oppo X 2021, however, it does not has plans for mass-producing it. At least not in the near future. For now, the company will focus on standard flagships and in filling the market with competitive 5G smartphones. Recently, the company launched the Oppo A72 5G in China with a PECM 10 model number. Apparently, the A-series is about to get a new member as a new device sporting PECM30 has been spotted on GeekBench. Meanwhile, a PECT30 handset appeared on TENAA certification. Together the model number PCEM30 and PECT 30 resembles the model number of Oppo A72 5G, so it probably will be a new variant for the affordable 5G family. Thanks to GeekBench, we know some of its key specifications.
The device passed by the GeekBench platform with the MediaTek MT6853 chipset. This, in fact, is marketed as Dimensity 720, a cost-effective 5G chipset made on the modern 7nm process that delivers 5G connectivity. The handset managed to score 512 points in the single-core tests and 1658 points in the multi-core department. Apart from the excellent budget 5G chipset, the phone also has 6GB of RAM and boots Android 10 OS. The software is a surprise as OPPO is currently working on Android 11-based ColorOS 11. Perhaps, the device will still come with Android 10.

When it comes to TENAA, the Chinese regulatory body is a bit more revealing. According to the listing, the phone flaunts a 6.5-inch FullHD+ LCD with a punch-hole serving as a house for the 8MP selfie snapper. This panel has 2,400 x 1,080 pixels and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The Dimensity 720 will be paired with 4GB, 6GB or 8GB of RAM and Internal Storage sits at 128GB.
Moving to the rear, we have a triple-camera array that consists of a 16MP main camera and two additional 2MP modules. The phone comes with a 3,945mAh rated capacity battery. Perhaps the phone will be marketed with a 4,000mAh battery. The charging capabilities aren’t mentioned here. TENAA lists five colorways – Black, White, Purple, Silver, and Red. The phone comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Unfortunately, OPPO is yet to disclose details about this handset. However, considering the 5G connectivity we expect this device to hit China in the first moment, the TENAA certification serves as proof.
