OPPO PBBM30, PBBT30 Smartphones Receive 3C Certification in China

After TENAA, OPPO's upcoming entry-level PBBM30 and PBBT30 smartphones have been certified by 3C.


Last month, two variants of an upcoming unannounced OPPO bearing model numbers PBBM30 and PBBT30 were certified by TENAA in China. Both the models have now been certified by 3C, suggesting the smartphone could soon be launched in OPPO’s home country.

The OPPO PBBM30 and PBBT30 3C certification does not reveal anything new about the smartphone, except for the power adapter specifications. OPPO will be bundling both variants of the smartphone with a 5V 2A power adapter in the box.

As revealed by the TENAA listings previously, the OPPO PBBM30 and PBBT30 will feature a 6.2-inch display with 720 x 1520 HD+ resolution. Under the hood, both variants are going to be powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz. In the memory department, they will come equipped with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. At the rear, they will feature a dual-camera setup with a 13MP resolution primary snapper and a 2MP secondary sensor for depth-sensing. For selfies, the smartphone will have an 8MP snapper on the front. While they will not have a fingerprint sensor, they are expected to come with Face Unlock support for easy access. Fueling the internals of the smartphone will be a large 4100mAh capacity battery. Going by the specifications revealed by TENAA, the PBBM30 and PBBT30 will be re-branded variants of the Realme C1 sold in India. In terms of physical size, both phones measure 156.1 x 75.7 x 8.2mm and weigh 170 grams.

OPPO recently launched the A7 budget Android smartphone in India and a few other South East Asian markets. Since the OPPO A7 is basically a re-branded version of the Realme 2, it is certainly not surprising that the company is working on a re-branded version of the entry-level Realme C1 for the Chinese market. The OPPO PBBM30 and PBBT30 models have so far appeared only on Chinese certification agencies, so it is not clear if OPPO plans to sell the smartphone in India and other markets outside China. If OPPO does bring the re-branded Realme C1 to India, we can expect it to be priced at a slight premium, just like the OPPO A7.
