Chinese smartphone manufacturers, Oppo, have launched a new mid-range device, the Oppo A33, in China.
The smartphone is available to buy via the company’s store in the country but is currently listed as ‘out of stock’. This is expected to change in the near future.
The Oppo A33 is priced at CNY 1,499 (close to 47,000 Naira) and is expected to give Motorola Moto G (Gen 3) and Xiaomi Mi 4i a run of their money with this price.
Although the company haven’t revealed plans to launch the Oppo A33 smartphone outside China, the Oppo A33 is coming to other markets soon.
The smartphone features a 5 inch (540 x 960 pixels) TFT display with a pixel density of 220ppi. It measures 142.7 x 71.7 x 7.5 mm and weighs 146 grams.
The newly launched device runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with the ColorOS 2.1 skin on top. It also comes with dual SIM card support- one Micro SIM and one Nano SIM card.
The Oppo A33 smartphone is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. This will ensure that it runs applications smoothly without hanging or lagging.
The smartphone packs an 8 megapixel rear autofocus camera, and also sports a 5 megapixel front-facing camera for taking selfies and making video calls.
The Oppo A33 bears 16GB of internal memory storage which can be expanded via a microSD card up to 128GB, should one need more memory.
Connectivity options on the phone include 3G (HSPA+), 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-USB 2.0, GPS/ A-GPS, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The China listing of the Oppo A33 confirms that the handset supports Indian LTE bands.
The phone is backed by a 2400 mAh battery which is said to deliver up to 250 hours of standby time and up to 8 hours of talk-time.
It also bears an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor.
