Even during this time of the pandemic, Oppo is still releasing new devices and all of them have been market-specific as not every device is available everywhere. Recently, Oppo launched the Oppo A52 in China and they have launched the Oppo A72 that comes with a camera upgrade to the later. Let’s take a look at the specs, features, expected price of Oppo A52 and see if it will launch in Nepal.
Oppo A72 Overview
Design and Display
Design-wise, the upcoming Oppo A72 is indistinguishable from the Oppo A52. Both feature an LCD panel of 6.5-inch diagonal length. The screen is surrounded by thin bezels which is more apparent on the bottom of the screen. There is a circular cut-out on the top left corner of the screen that houses the front camera. Thanks to the thin bezels and the punch-hole display, the device has a screen to body ratio of 90.5%.
On the back, we can see the same Alaska sky inspired design. Even the color options remain the same – Blue and Black. As with most of the mid-range devices these days, the fingerprint sensor has been shifted to the right side of the device.
Performance and Memory
In recent times, there has been a surge in brands incorporating Snapdragon 765G in their mid-range but Oppo has dropped it in favor of Snapdragon 665. With the year-old chip, Oppo A72 will have cheaper manufacturing costs and will target a different set of users that don’t need to make the switch to 5G anytime soon. Like the Oppo A52, Oppo A72 will also be available in 8/128GB memory configuration. You can expand the storage further using the microSD card slot.
The major difference between the two is in the camera setup. Oppo A72 comes with a 48MP quad-camera setup compared to the 12MP quad-camera setup on the A52. Oppo has also bumped the ultra-wide angle camera from 8MP to 16MP. The 2MP macro sensor and the 2MP depth sensor remains the same. The upgrade in the camera is also true for the selfie camera, as A72 features a 16MP sensor.
Battery and Others
Oppo A72 features a massive 5000mAh battery and will likely come with support for 18W fast charging. The device will ship with Android 10 with ColorOS 7.1 on top. The device is rumored to come with Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
