Oppo is slated to launch its new A-series smartphone, the Oppo A74, and rumours have suggested that the phone may feature separate 4G and 5G editions. While the Oppo A74 standard 4G edition has been tipped in numerous leaks already, word about the A74 5G had remained slim, up until now. An Australian retailer has listed a live retail page of the Oppo A74 5G on its platform, in process revealing much of its specifications and also offering an indicative price point for the smartphone.
Oppo A74 5G: expected specifications
What’s unusual to note is how different the Oppo A74 5G sounds like, in comparison to the 4G version of the A74. In the retailer listing, the A74 5G features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 5G chipset, along with 128GB native storage and most likely at least 6GB of RAM. In comparison, the standard A74 edition is said to sport a Snapdragon 633 SoC. While this change in SoC is an expected one, the other changes tipped for the 4G and 5G variants of the A74 sound much more drastic in comparison.
The new retailer page tips the Oppo A74 5G to feature a 6.5-inch LCD display with 90Hz refresh rate, and a side-mounted physical fingerprint sensor. To the rear, the A74 5G is tipped to feature a 48MP quad rear camera, with 48MP primary, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro and 2MP depth units. In comparison, the 4G variant of the A74 has been tipped to feature a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with 60Hz refresh rate and an under-display fingerprint sensor. To the rear, it is slated to feature a 48MP triple camera setup with two additional 2MP units for macro and depth photos.
This rather stark difference somewhat offsets the idea of calling two phones by the same name, when they do not appear to even share the same body structure. Given these are pre-launch listings, it is likely that there are some errors made in entries, so all that’s reported here may of course change by the time of launch. The Oppo A74 is also tipped to feature a 5,000mAh battery with 33W fast charging support, which remains the same for both the 4G and 5G variants.
The Australian retailer listing pegs the pricing of the A74 5G at AUD 449, which translates to about Rs 25,000 in India. This may seem to be a bit steep, given the SoC on offer as per rumours, and the kind of smartphones that one can buy in the Rs 25,000 price point in India. Of course, final pricing will differ for India when the A74 5G is eventually launched, which is rumoured to happen on April 13.
