A mystery Oppo smartphone with decent specifications has surfaced online. The presumably budget Android handset from the Chinese company is packing some interesting specifications.
An as yet unidentified Oppo smartphone surfaced on popular online benchmarking repository Geekbench. The Oppo handset is codenamed PAEM00. The device appears to be running the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. Given the specifications, it appears Oppo could be readying an affordable handset for the budget conscious smartphone buyers.
Mystery Oppo PAEM00 Spotted On Geekbench With Basic Specifications
The Oppo PAEM00 is clearly an Android smartphone. Strangely, despite the handset yet to officially launch or be christened, the device is running Android 8.1 Oreo. The latest Android update, the Android 9 Pie is already being deployed by several smartphone makers. Hence the mystery Oppo smartphone running the increasingly aging Android OS seems rather odd.
Still, Oppo almost never opts for the clean and pure Android OS. The company has its own custom layer called the ColorOS. The latest version of the ColorOS is still based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The next major update to the ColorOS will bring up the version number to six. In other words, Oppo will base the ColorOS v6 on Android 9 Pie.
The mystery Oppo smartphone appears to be packing 3,579MB or 4GB of RAM. Moreover, the device is running on ‘MSM8953′ motherboard or SoC. The processor clearly belongs to Qualcomm. The chipset appears to be clocked at 2.02GHz. A little digging will indicate Oppo is using Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, an entry-level but still quite capable mobile processor. The dedicated page for the Snapdragon 625 SoC corroborates the clock-speed. The page also mentions the 14nm chipset offers several benefits, including Quick Charge 3.0 support, Adreno 506 GPU, Bluetooth 4.1, etc.
The Oppo PAEM00 mystery smartphone managed a single core score of 855, and a multi-core score of 3244. Needless to mention, these aren’t impressive scores. Moreover, they do not align with a device packing the Snapdragon 625 SoC, and 4GB RAM. However, the test device could be running beta software that isn’t optimized for commercial rollout.
