The BBK Electronics-owned smartphone brand, OPPO, took wraps off its OPPO F9 and F9 Pro smartphones a few days ago. Now, it seems that the company is prepping for the launch of a cheaper variant of the smartphones for the Chinese market. Three new OPPO devices—PBCT10, PBCM10, and PBCM30—have been recently certified by Chinese certification authority TENAA.
The phones have the same gradient blue finish that we saw with the OPPO F9 Pro. Even the design and the specifications look same. However, the difference is the departure of the fingerprint sensor from the rear. A few other details about these smartphones have been revealed as well. Let’s find out what these new smartphones have to offer.
We can see that both OPPO PBCT10 and OPPO PBCM30 will sport a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2340×1080 pixels. The handsets measure 158.3×75.5×7.4mm in terms of dimensions and weigh 156g. The devices will ship with 1.95GHz octa-core processors and are aided with 4GB and 6GB of RAM, respectively. The base variant (PBCT10/PBCM10) will feature 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The 6GB RAM variant of the phone will feature 128GB memory. The phones run Android 8.1 Oreo-based ColorOS out of the box.
Similar to the F9 Pro, these new phones will sport a 16MP+2MP rear-facing dual-camera setup. At the front, the phones will feature 25MP selfie shooter. Connectivity-wise, we can expect these phones to feature dual-SIM support, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microUSB 2.0 port, and a 3.5mm audio port. Both models will be powered by 3500mAh batteries. The phones are supposed to ship in Blue, Red and Silver colours.
If we go by the information revealed in TENAA certification documents, the phones will have a fingerprint sensor. However, the images revealed online does not showcase any such thing at the rear. Whether or not it points towards an in-screen fingerprint reader remains to be seen. As of now, we don’t know what would be the names of these phones but we should get to know more information about the phones once OPPO announces them in the next few days.
