The Chinese company presented the phone with ultra-thin bezels and a cutout on its display for the camera and the speaker. That way the LCD is a 6.2” panel with 19:9 ratio and Full HD+ resolution.

Oppo A3 has an octa-core CPU at 2 GHz and a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU paired on the latest Helio chipset. The RAM is 4 GB, which combined with the massive storage and the microSD slot makes for a memory combo we rarely see in a midranger.

The primary camera on the back has a 16 MP sensor with an f/1.8 lens in the front of it. Selfies can be snapped with the 8 MP shooter that comes with a bit more basic f/2.2 lens.

Oppo stays loyal to its Color OS and brings the 5.0 version of its in-house UI on top of the Android 8.1 Oreo. The A3 comes in a 156x75.3x7.8 mm package with a weight of 159 grams and a price tag of CNY2,099 or about $332/€274. The phone is offered with a fancy triangular design under the glass back in four colors - Black, Silver, Pink, and Red.
