The A7n is the latest member of the entry-level lineup form OPPO. Most of the features like the MediaTek Helio P35 SoC, the 4 GB of RAM, the 1520 x 720 resolution and the 13 MP + 2 MP rear dual-cam setup are clearly meant to fit a tight budget. However, OPPO also added a few mid-range features like a bigger 6.2-inch display, 64 GB of storage and a 4,230 mAh battery.

OPPO usually makes the headlines with premium flagships and unconventional designs, but the Chinese company does make other more inexpensive smartphones like the ones from the entry-level A-series. After introducing the A5s a few weeks ago, OPPO is now adding the A7n with slightly improved specs to its roster of budget-friendly models.

The A7n is quite similar to the A5s, the only notable differences being 4 GB of RAM and the 16 MP selfie cam instead of the 3GB of RAM and 8 MP sensor. Spec-wise, the A7n is still nothing short of a budget handheld, although it does have some features that are not usually found in this category. For example, there is the large 6.2-inch IPS display with teardrop notch, but the resolution is limited to 1520 x 720. Powering the device is the Helio P35 SoC from MediaTek, while the 64 GB of storage seem to be the standard for the new wave of inexpensive phones. On the Lake Light Green back of the A7n we find a modest dual-cam setup with a 13 MP f/2.2 main sensor and a 2 MP f/2.2 bokeh one, along with a round fingerprint reader.

While most entry-level smartphones provide 3,000 mAh batteries, OPPO is equipping the new A-series with bigger 4,230 mAh accumulators. Unfortunately, the A7n will only be shipping with OPPO’s proprietary Color OS 5.2.1 that is based on the Android 8.1, and there is no word about the Android 9 update. Even though pricing information has not yet been provided, keep in mind that this model will only be available in China.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
