Oppo F5 Youth arrives in China as Oppo A73

Yordan, 18 December 2017

Oppo F5 arrived in October, followed by a toned-down version named Oppo F5 Youth a month later. Now the manufacturer launched a China-only variant of the latter named Oppo A73. It has the same 6” FullView screen and 13 MP camera.

The chipset has octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU and ARM Mali G71 MP2 GPU. The setup looks like the Helio P23 chipset by Mediatek, but it might also be the Helio P30.

The tall screen comes with Full HD+ resolution (2160x1080 pixels). The front panel also features a single 16 MP selfie snapper with f/2.0 aperture. Strangely enough, the back camera’s lens is slower at f/2.2.

The RAM on the Oppo A73 is 4 GB, along with 32 GB storage. There is also a microSD slot that can be coupled with two-nano SIM cards. Color OS 3.2 is powering on the phone, based on Android 7.1 Nougat. Remember, this is a China-only phone, so no Google services.

The phone’s security is provided by stock face unlock or a more secure choice - the oval fingerprint scanner on the back.

Offered in either Gold or Black, the Oppo A73 goes for CNY1,699 or about $260.
