Chinese smartphone maker Oppo is working on its new smartphone dubbed as Oppo A3. The product dimensions are pretty much identical with those of the OPPO F7, although an interesting pattern on the back of the black A3 may help the mid-ranger stand out. In terms of imaging, the OPPO A3 will feature a 16MP rear-facing camera and an 8MP front-facing camera. Subsequently, it is steeply priced at Rs. 26,990 - in contrast, the regular variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB inbuilt storage is priced at Rs. 21,990. It will go on sale in the country from 21 April. The contrast and color range of the pixels are expanded to reveal more detailed, brighter and more vibrant selfies.
The Oppo F7 features a 16-megapixel primary camera with f/1.8 aperture, phase detection autofocus and LED flash.
The F7 has unibody metal design and comes with an iPhone X-like notch. The display of this phone has protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. That will apparently be enough to buy you a whopping 128GB internal storage space and decently generous 4GB RAM, but just like the A1, the A3 seems intent to drop the fingerprint reader and presumably rely exclusively on facial recognition for biometric authentication purposes. This phone is powered by octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 SoC with four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2GHz mated with Mali-G72MP3 GPU. This phone has triple slot - two for SIM cards and one dedicated slot for microSD card.
Facebook facing class action suit over facial recognition tech
The Electronic Privacy Information Center has called on the FTC to investigate Facebook's facial recognition practices since 2011. Facebook has also noted that users can opt out of the feature.
Its connectivity options include 4G VoLTE 3G, GPRS/EDGE, Wi-Fi, GPS/AGPS, Bluetooth, and USB Type-C.
Oppo F7 Diamond Black Special Edition like the rest of its variants runs on Android 8.0 Oreo with ColorOS 5.0 on top and features a 3,400mAh battery.
