Oppo launches the A71 in India for US$200
The Oppo A71, which was previously only available in Malaysia, has now been launched in India for Rs. 12,990 (US$200). The A71 is a ‘standard’ sized device compared to the competition with a 5.2-inch 720p LCD screen and a 3000 mAh battery. Unfortunately, the wireless radios are a little lacking with WiFi being limited to 802.11n and Bluetooth only supporting 4.0.
It is running Oppo’s ColorOS 3.1 skin on Android 7.1 Nougat. Inside it uses a Cortex-A53 based Octa-core MediaTek MT6750 comprised of four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz and four at 1.0 GHz. The graphical power is provided by a pretty anemic Mali-T860 MP2, which has only two GPU clusters running at 520 MHz. Oppo has combined this SoC with 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage which can be expanded via MicroSD.
The camera specifications aren’t too bad on paper for a device in this price range. The rear camera is using a 13 MP sensor with an f/2.2 aperture and a 5 MP front facing camera with an f/2.4 aperture. Oppo specifies that they are using phase detection auto-focus and some proprietary technology to reduce noise in lower light situations.
No word yet on whether the A71 will be made available in more markets soon.
