OPPO is reportedly going to announce three new smartphones in India under its budget A-series called the OPPO A12, A11k, and A52. These new smartphones will go head-to-head with the newly launched Galaxy M01 and M11 from Samsung. To recall, the OPPO A12 had been launched in Indonesia back in April while the A52 had launched in China around the same time period. The A11k is hasn’t been launched yet and very little is known about the device but it will be the cheapest option amongst all three phones, as per the report.
OPPO A12: Expected specifications and price
As per the launch in Indonesia, the OPPO A12 has a 6.22-inch HD+ IPS LCD with a waterdrop notch on the top. The report by 91mobiles also revealed launch offers on the device which included 5 percent cashback with Bank of Baroda, ICICI, Federal Bank, Bajaj Finserv, IDFC First Bank, Home Credit, and HDB Financial Services. Under the hood, the A12 has a MediaTek Helio P35 SoC which is supported by up to 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. In terms of optics, the OPPO A12 features a dual-camera setup with a 13MP primary sensor and a 2MP secondary sensor. The selfie shooter on the front happens to be a 5MP sensor while the entire setup is fueled by a 4,230mAh battery. The expected price of the device is going to be about Rs 12,500 which is what the Indonesian price is when converted to INR.
OPPO A11k: Expected specifications and price
The report by 91mobiles states that the A11k will have specifications that will be identical to the OPPO A12 that has already been launched in Indonesia. The difference will only be that the A11k will have only a 2GB RAM + 32GB storage variant as compared to the 3GB + 32GB or 4GB + 64GB versions of the OPPO A12. In terms of design changes, the back of the A11k is likely to be devoid of the diamond-cut pattern seen on the A12. Rest everything will be the same, as per the report. The OPPO A11k could be a sub Rs 10,000 offering.
OPPO A52: Expected specifications and price
The OPPO A52 has a 6.5-inch FHD+ IPS LCD with a punch-hole camera which gives the phone a claimed screen-to-body ratio of 90.8 percent. Powering the phone is a Snapdragon 665 SoC and is supported by up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage which can be expanded using a microSD card. Optics-wise the phone has a quad-camera setup with the primary camera having a 12MP sensor and it is supported by an 8MP ultra-wide lens, 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro lens. The whole setup is powered by a 5,000mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging. In China, the phone had been announced for a starting price of CNY 1,599 which is about Rs 17,500. We should expect the same pricing to arrive in India as well.
