The OPPO A11 is a budget phone with quad cameras from 2019. Now, it appears it has a successor destined for markets such as that of Thailand (and also possibly Indonesia). However, it seems this phone is, if anything, even more low-end than the existing model.

OPPO has reportedly had a new phone called the A12 certified for use in the Thai market. This leak follows a similar one in which it has also been approved in Indonesia for the same purpose. Therefore, it seems that these countries will have a new device launched there soon. Judging by its predecessor, it may be sold at the ~US$200 mark.

The OPPO A11 is a low- to mid-ranger with the Snapdragon 665 processor. A Geekbench listing for its upcoming predecessor - the OPPO CPH2083, confirmed to be named the A12 in its new NTBC certification, indicates that it will be even less prepossessing, if anything.

It is powered by the MediaTek Helio P35 SoC and, disappointingly enough, ran Android 9.0 (Pie) in a Geekbench listing that may pertain to it. In addition, it (like the new Realme 6i) appears to start at 3GB of RAM, whereas the A11 started with 4.

However, it is still possible that this new phone might come reasonably well-equipped in the rear camera department: the A11 has 4, even if the main sensor is 12MP.
