Every manufacturer is looking for ways to woo potential buyers. Most of them create marketing hypes to allure customers to increase their sales figures. Of course, we do see useful features too. And, what about those multiple sensors on the rear?
We were happy with a single camera setup a few years ago. Then, came dual optics technology for depth sensing, telephoto, wide-angle view, etc. Just as anyone would expect, the market took it by storm. Obviously, companies upped their games with a triple, quad, and even penta camera setups.
Oppo A91 and A8 Goes Live with Quad and Triple Camera Setups Respectively
So yeah, the offline market was the prime focus of Oppo, before a few years. However, they realized the potential of eCommerce very late. However, another BBK kid, OnePlus were rocking in the mid-range segment until they climbed up the pricing ladder to lose enter the list of top-end flagships.
Today, Oppo has announced two new smartphones, A91 and A8. As for the specifications, the former features a 6.4-inch full-HD+ AMOLED screen with a water-drop notch, 90.7 percent screen-to-body ratio, and Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
We couldn’t confirm the chipset inside. However, it’s an octa-core Soc coupled with up to 8 GB RAM and 128 internal storage. You will also get an in-display fingerprint scanner, which they claim to unlock the device in 0.32 seconds.
As the title says, the camera houses four sensors; a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle shooter with an 119-degree field of view, a dedicated macro camera, and a depth sensor. You will get a 4000 mAh battery with support for SuperVOOC charging.
When it comes to A8, it’s more of a budget offering than A91. Of course, you see a water-drop notch up top, even so, the display measures 6.5-inch in size and 720 x 1600 pixels in resolution with 89 percent screen-to-body ratio. This one also lends the processing power from an octa-core chipset. And, there is no confirmation available as to which one it could be. The RAM and internal storage are the same as of A91.
The rear camera is a triple camera setup with a 12-megapixel main camera, assisted by a 2-megapixel wide-angle shooter, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Nonetheless, the battery is slightly bumped up to 4230 mAh.
That brings us to the pricing. The phones haven’t been launched anywhere but in China. There, Oppo A91 (8/128 GB) costs CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 20,000) whereas A8 comes with a price tag of CNY 1,199 (roughly Rs. 12,000).
We have to wait to see for them to go official in India.
