Although the year is about to end, in Asia do not stop the launch of new smartphones. And China already has a new model for those who like huge phablet screens at the same time as really cheap prices. Let’s get to know the Oppo A73, a mobile phone with the 6-inch screen without frames and an alternative to others like the Honor 7X and the Xiaomi Mi A1.
Although its name is not well known in the West, if we say that the Chinese brand Oppo is the one that controls OnePlus, it sure sounds a little more then. Considered one of the most important brands in Asia, Oppo is one of the most active and that is noticeable in the prolific of its production. It was at the end of last October that we met the Oppo F5, a smartphone that barely a month later had a lower version with the Oppo F5 Youth, which retained several of its elements but was reduced in others such as RAM or internal space.
Characteristics of the Oppo A73
Well, just a month after the Oppo F5 Youth, the brand launches a variant of this which has been renamed Oppo A73. More like no doubt to the Oppo A79 a smartphone that enters through the eyes from the beginning with its design: a metal body that houses a huge 6-inch TFT-LTPS FullHD + FullView screen that occupies 86% of the front of the terminal, coming with the age 18:9 also. Internally it mounts the same MediaTek Helio P23 processor with 8 cores at 2.5 GHz than the Oppo F5 and the F5 Youth, with a Mali G71 MP2 GPU.
The front, which therefore has no physical buttons, is completed with a camera for selfies of 16 Megapixels with aperture f / 2.0. The curious and that highlights the importance of selfie in the Chinese market is that the rear camera is less powerful, with a lens of 13 Mpxl and aperture of f / 2.2 auto-focus and LED flash. Its 4GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable storage denote that it is an affordable mobile. The set is topped with a 3,200 mAh battery to power the huge screen, Dual SIM, rear fingerprint reader and the Color OS 3.2 customization layer as an operating system based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
Alternative to the Honor 7X and Xiaomi Mi A1
With a price of 1,699 yuan (about $255 to change), the Oppo A73 can already be purchased in China, and by its characteristics enters the mid-range segment in which it will have a tough competition against other models such as the recent Honor 7X, the great Xiaomi Mi A1 and the Vivo Y75, the latter also marketed by the Oppo brand.
