With fierce competition from Poco C3 and the newly announced Samsung Galaxy M02s, Oppo Nepal has slashed the price of Oppo A12 in Nepal. Launched back in July, the Oppo A12 is a budget-oriented smartphone that caters to first-time smartphone buyers.
Oppo A12 Overview
Design and Display
From the front, Oppo A12 looks like any other budget smartphone in the market. It comes with a 6.22-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9. Oppo has added a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to protect the display. There is a tiny waterdrop notch on the top to use the front camera. The display comes with Blue Light Shield what will protect your eyes by filtering out harmful blue light.
The back panel is what really catches the attention. Though the body is made up of polycarbonate, it doesn’t look that dull thanks to the 3D Diamond Blaze design. There is a pill-shaped camera module that houses the dual camera setup.
Performance and Memory
Under the hood, the device packs MediaTek’s Helio P35 chipset and we aren’t really surprised. The processor powers most of the budget devices available today. Users can choose between 3 or 4GB of RAM. The two RAM variants come with 32GB and 64GB of internal storage respectively. If the storage doesn’t sound enough, you can expand it up to 256GB via a microSD card.
The dual-camera setup comes with a 13MP primary camera. It is accompanied by a 2MP portrait lens for the bokeh effects. An LED flash resides on the side of the pill-shaped camera module. On the front, there is a 5MP selfie camera.
