Recently, evidence of 2 new mobile devices from the OEM OPPO associated with a novel Qualcomm code-name surfaced on the Geekbench database. Now, both of their model numbers have reportedly appeared on those of several national regulators, one of which is the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This suggests they may launch soon in various regions, the US included.

The evidence that OPPO will launch 2 new low- to mid-range phones with a new Snapdragon processor is getting stronger. Their apparent model numbers - CPH2095 and CPH2127 - have now reportedly appeared in new certifications from multiple national authorities. Some of these official leaks may also spill their product names: the former may be known as the A73, whereas the latter may be the A53 from now on.

Should this be the case, it appears that both of them are to be released in India, Thailand and Russia. This is because these nations' BIS, NBTC and EEC bodies have just approved them for use. Furthermore, it seems the A53 may be headed to the US, Singapore and Indonesia as well.

New documentation from the FCC, IMDA and TKDN, which operate in these countries respectively, all now list the CPH2127 in their databases. The FCC has also posted battery and antenna schematics that seem to reveal the phone has dual rear cameras in a lozenge-shaped housing and a rear-facing fingerprint sensor.

As to their internals, Geekbench already implies they have 4GB of RAM and rock a processor that goes at 1.8GHz at the least. This SoC, code-named bengal, is now thought to be the Snapdragon 662 which, despite its name, may supplant the 665 in 2020.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
