Oppo A72 unveiled with 48MP quad cam, coming to Europe alongside the A52

Peter, 21 April 2020

The Oppo A52 is coming to Europe and it is not alone – it will be joined by the more capable A72. The euro prices are not yet known, but the A52 will cost CNY 1,600 in China, which works out to €210 (you have to account for the European taxes and such, of course). There are no exact details on when and where these two will be available either, but since they are coming to Germany we assume that more or less the whole EU will be covered.

Before we go over the differences between these two we'll have a look at the hardware they share. Both the Oppo A52 and A72 have a 6.5” screen with 1080p+ resolution (most likely an LCD). They are powered by a Snapdragon 665 chipset with 4GB of RAM. Also, there is a quad-camera on the back and a fingerprint reader on the side, plus a 3.5mm jack on the bottom. The 5,000mAh battery supports 18W fast charge.

The Oppo A72 has better cameras, however. Its main camera has a 48MP sensor (up from 12MP on the A52) and its selfie camera takes 16MP photos (up from 8MP). The other three modules on the back are the same as the A52 – an 8MP ultrawide cam, 2MP macro cam and a 2MP depth sensor.

The A72 also has double the built-in storage, 128GB, but note that both models have microSD card slots. These two will run Color OS 7.1 based on Android 10 out of the box.

PS. The Oppo A12 was unveiled less than 24 hours ago for the entry-level segment and there is an Oppo A92s on the way to cover the upper mid-range.

The naming sounds like it was specifically chosen to confuse Samsung customers

oh! that SO CALLED quad-cam!!! 8 MP, f/2.2, 13mm (ultrawide), 1/4.0", 1.12µm (semi-useful) 2 MP, f/2.4, (macro) (useless) 2 MP, f/2.4, (depth) (not a camera, it's a sensor) so, finally it's a 1.5 cam phone
