At the back, you have the dual camera modules along with an LED flash. However, there is no word on the camera resolution. And since it is a budget smartphone, there is no fingerprint scanner, and it will likely rely on face unlock.
Talking about the specifications, the Oppo A1s Bluetooth certification revealed that it could sport a 6.1-inch HD+ display. Under the hood, a MediaTek octa-core SoC clocked at 2GHz is expected. Connectivity options such as Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 802.11 are also likely to be in tow. There is no word on the RAM and storage variants or operating system. However, considering the smartphone will launch soon, we can expect it to run Android Pie with ColorOS 6.
As of now, there are no official details related to the pricing and launch date of the Oppo A1s. However, considering the fact that it has cleared the necessary certifications, the official launch may not too far off. The smartphone could be priced in the Rs 10,500 to Rs 12,000 price range, just above the Oppo A1k.
