The local budget smartphone market just got a little more crowded with the release of a new OPPO variant. The OPPO A7, which was launched in the Philippines back in November, now has a cheaper configuration in the country.
The OPPO A7 with 3GB RAM and 64GB of expandable storage costs P10,990 (about $212 converted) locally, while the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage version stays fixed at P13,990 ($270), the same price tag it had at launch.
Less RAM, more budget-friendly
While having less memory can make a difference in your day-to-day experience, the price gap between the two models is hard to ignore, especially in this category. If you ask us, based on other phones we’ve tried with a similar setup, 3GB of RAM already allows for decent multitasking and gaming.
The rest of this OPPO A7’s internals stay the same, meaning it still boasts a 6.2-inch HD screen with a tiny notch, 13- and 2-megapixel dual cameras on the back, a 16-megapixel front-facing camera, a 4,230mAh battery, and octa-core processing power courtesy of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450. Further, the A7 comes with a physical fingerprint sensor and face unlock via the selfie camera. It runs ColorOS 5.2 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
The OPPO A7 with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage is now available at OPPO stores, kiosks, and partner retailers nationwide, in gold and green colors. It will also be sold online through Lazada and Shopee Philippines soon.
