Earlier this week, the Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA) of Singapore certified an upcoming OPPO smartphone bearing model number CPH1920. The IMDA certification revealed the smartphone will be launched as OPPO AX5s. OPPO’s upcoming budget smartphone has now bagged Bluetooth certification as well, which suggests it may be launched soon.
OPPO AX5s Specifications Revealed
The CPH1920 listing on the Bluetooth Launch Studio website not only confirms Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy support but also reveals a few of the smartphone’s key hardware specifications. OPPO AX5s will feature a 6.2-inch display with HD+ resolution. While the display size will be identical to the AX5, we expect the AX5s to have a slightly taller aspect ratio as well as a waterdrop notch at the top. The smartphone is going to be powered by an octa-core MediaTek chipset clocked at 2.3 GHz. While the name of the chipset has not been listed, it could be the Helio P35 chipset going by the listed clock speed. Keeping the lights on will be a large 4230mAh capacity battery, identical to the AX5. This means the AX5s will be capable of delivering impressive battery stamina.
Furthermore, the Bluetooth certification confirms the presence of a fingerprint sensor, which will likely be positioned on the back of the phone. In terms of connectivity, the AX5s will support all the usual standards such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, and 4G LTE. As for software, the AX5s will be running on Android Oreo-based ColorOS 5.2 out of the box. OPPO is expected to soon launch two other affordable A-series Android smartphones: A1K and A5s. While the A1K will be an entry-level smartphone featuring a Helio P22 chipset, the A5s will be powered by a MediaTek Helio P35 chipset under the hood. Unfortunately, there is no word yet on exactly when the three smartphones will be made official.
