The smartphone space is already filled with iPhone X lookalikes and Oppo A3 is the new addition to this trend. The new Oppo smartphone is a mid-range offering that comes with iPhone X-like notch and a 19:9 aspect ratio display with the bezel-less design. Oppo A3 has 128GB of built-in storage, which is one more highlight of the device. The new Oppo smartphone has a 128-point face recognition technology which is claimed to unlock the handset in as little as 0.08 seconds.
Oppo has offered ‘nano-scale microcrystalline’ technology on the new device which gives a diamond-like pattern effect. The phone comes with AI-based beautification feature along with scene recognition. It has an AI-based smart assistant, a dedicated game mode that ensures seamless gaming experience, and customised gestures for the bezel-less display.
Coming to the pricing, the Oppo A3 comes with a price tag of CNY 2,099 (roughly Rs. 22,000) in China. However, as an introductory offer, the phone can be purchased at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 21,000). The device will be made available in Black, Red, Pink, and Silver colour options. It noteworthy that the phone was leaked several times before its launch and we already knew much about the device.
