OPPO has officially unveiled a new mid-range model in Taiwan dubbed OPPO A73s. The device looks like a direct successor of the A73 and both designs are similar. But the A73s comes powered by MediaTek’s latest Helio P60 mid-range chipset as against the Helio P23 chip which the A73 features. Another spectacular thing is the similarity of the A73s specs and design to that of India’s Realme 1.
The OPPO A73s comes with a 6-inch FHD+ LCD display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080pixels. The phone offers up to 84.75% screen ratio and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The device is also equipped with a 4GB RAM coupled with 64GB of internal storage. There is an independent microSD slot for expanding the internal storage and the device equally packs dual SIM slots.
The A73s is fuelled by a 3410mAh battery which is a tad bigger than the battery cells on the A73 and even the A75. Of course, there is the VOOC fast charging technology onboard so there is no fear f running out of battery power. The A73s gets its interface from an Android 8.1 Oreo-based Color OS 5.1. The OPPO A73s camera is designed with Beauty AI technology. The device packs a single 13MP rear camera with AI smart beauty, AI smart scene recognition while at the front is an 8MP selfie camera.
The A73s is available in Red and Black colours. The Black coloured variant has the same diamond-textured back panel design as the Realme 1 but there is no rear fingerprint sensor. The phone only features Face Unlock. As for the pricing, the A73s will sell for TWD8,990 (approximately $297). The device will be available to buy in Taiwan later this month.
