Exclusive: OPPO A12 design and specs revealed; Helio P35, 4,230mAh battery and more

For a while now, two OPPO A-series smartphones have been doing the rounds on the internet. These smartphones are called the OPPO A12 and A12e. The former was spotted on the website of Thailand’s NBTC regulator IMDA and Geekbench, which revealed several of its key details. The OPPO A12e, on the other hand, had its specifications revealed recently, confirming that it is a budget smartphone powered by a mid-range Snapdragon processor. Pricebaba has now obtained the specifications of the OPPO A12 and an official render, via reliable tipster Ishan Agarwal. Here’s what to expect from the upcoming OPPO A12.

OPPO A12 specifications and design

The OPPO A12 is an upcoming budget smartphone

As you can see in the render, the OPPO A12 is expected to come with a polycarbonate body featuring a diamond pattern on the back, which we have seen on Realme’s offerings in the past. According to Agarwal, the smartphone will weigh 165g and measure 155.9 x 75.5 x 8.3mm. We can see a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner on the back along with a dual camera module backed by a single LED flash. Agarwal confirms that the camera setup will feature a 13-megapixel f/2.2 primary camera accompanied by a 2-megapixel f/2.4 secondary lens. For selfies and video calling, the smartphone will offer a 5MP f/2.0 snapper on the front.

The render shows a waterdrop notch display on the front, which we can confirm will be an LCD panel measuring 6.22-inches with HD+ resolution. The smartphone will be powered by MediaTek’s Helio P35 processor. OPPO will be offering the handset in two configurations – 3GB RAM with 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM with 64GB storage. There’s no word on the expandable storage of the handset yet. Lastly, the tipster reveals that the phone will boot ColorOS 6.1.2 out of the box and be powered by a 4,230mAh battery.

The specifications of the OPPO A12 suggest it will be a budget offering. We can expect OPPO to launch the smartphone in the coming days. Notably, the OPPO A11 was not launched in India, so it’s unlikely that the A12 will make its way to the country.
