A couple of months back Oppo launched its budget smartphone in the Indonesian market dubbed Oppo A12. The smartphone’s major highlights were MediaTek SoC, dual-rear cameras, and diamond-shaped rear pattern. The budget device is now tossed in the Indian market for a price of ₹9,990($132).
The Oppo A12 smartphone sports a 6.22-inch notch display with an HD+ resolution. It is a TFT panel with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. In terms of optics, it has a dual-rear camera setup consisting of a 13-megapixel primary sensor and another 2-megapixel depth sensor. It has a 5-megapixel selfie camera placed in the notch.
Inside, the smartphone powers the MediaTek Helio P35 chipset paired with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage. The smartphone houses a 4,230mAh battery with standard charging speeds. Oppo claims that the device can offer up to 17 hours playback which is possible considering the HD+ panel. It runs on old Android 9 with Oppo’s ColorOS on top of it.
The smartphone doesn’t seem competitive looking at its already dated software and some hardware. Nonetheless, the offline market is a way for Oppo to grab holds on customers via enticing advertisements.
Moving to the pricing and color variants, the Oppo A12 comes in Black and Blue color variants. As said it starts at ₹9,990($132) for 3GB/32GB variant and ₹11,490($152) for 4GB/64GB variant.
