Oppo has finally introduced its A3 mid-range smartphone in home country China. Key features of the Oppo A3 is its tall, notch-based display and newest Android Oreo OS running under the hood. It is priced at CNY 2,099, which translates into approximately Rs 22,000, and available in color choices of black, silver, pink, and red. It is unclear if the Oppo A3 will be launched in India anytime soon.
While the Oppo A3 does get the edge-to-edge display design, it skips on the dual-camera setup, which is fast becoming a complementary feature in bezel-less phones. However, the smartphone does offer the facial recognition-based authentication feature which is claimed to unlock the device in 0.08 seconds.
