The Oppo A31 has officially made its way to Nepal. It brings HD+ display, underwhelming Helio P35 chipset, and a micro-USB port at an unconscionable price. Anyways, let’s dig more about the Oppo A31 and its official price in Nepal.

Oppo A31 Overview

Oppo A31 is the company’s latest offering in its ‘A’ lineup of smartphones. This phone is aimed at the budget segment of the smartphone market. The design of the device is nothing to write home about. From the front, it is indistinguishable from the other budget offers available in the market today.

It comes with a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. The display features a waterdrop notch to accommodate the 8MP front camera. On the back, we have a vertical camera module to house the triple-camera setup and flash. There is also a capacitative fingerprint sensor mounted on the back of the device. The device is made of up plastic and it isn’t protected against splash and dust.

Under the hood, it packs MediaTek’s Helio P35 chipset which we saw in the recently launched Vivo Y30. Processor-wise, I think Oppo should be offering a better chipset. The device comes with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. In case the storage is not enough, you can expand the storage up to 512GB via a MicroSD card slot.

We get a triple camera setup comprising of a 12MP primary sensor. It is accompanied by a 2MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, there is an 8MP camera on the front housed in the waterdrop notch. For biometrics, there is a fingerprint sensor mounted on the back. A 4,230mAh battery will be powering the device. There is a micro-USB port for charging the device. Software-wise, it will ship with Android Pie with ColorOS 6 on top.

OPPO A31 Price in Nepal & Availability

Model Name Price in Nepal  Availability
Oppo A31 (4/64GB) Rs. 26,590 July 16, 2020

At a price of Rs. 26,590, the Oppo A31 is one of the most overpriced smartphones of 2020. We recommend you buy the Galaxy M21 instead, which offers a FullHD+ AMOLED screen, a much better 48MP triple rear cameras, and 6000mAh battery with fast charging.
