Entry-level Oppo A51 may sell for 250 Euros
Chinese media are reporting that the Oppo A51 could be an expensive device despite its mainstream hardware. Currently, the smartphone may be priced at 1700 Yuan, or the equivalent of 250 Euros. Core specifications include a 5-inch 720p display and quad-core Snapdragon 410 SoC. The hardware will be quite weak compared to competing devices in the same price range.
For 250 Euros, users can instead purchase the OnePlus One with its FHD display, 16 GB eMMC, and 3 GB RAM. This alone outranks the A51 in hardware performance as the Oppo will reportedly have 2 GB RAM and a 16 GB eMMC with MicroSD support up to 128 GB. Its rear and front cameras will be 8 MP and 5 MP, respectively.
Other features include dimensions of 143.4 x 71.2 x 7.65 mm and a weight of 160 grams. Its battery will be 2420 mAh and its proprietary ColorOS 2.1 UI will be based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. Previous reports, however, have stated an Android 5.0.2 software, so the A51 may be getting a slight upgrade before launch. In contrast to the supposed 1700 Yuan launch price, the A51 is expected to sell for 600 Dirhams in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This converts to a more reasonable 150 Euro price range.
