OPPO is set to announce a new budget smartphone, but it looks like somebody already pulled the curtains. A new member of its A-series is listed on the company’s regional websites in Malaysia and Pakistan.

The OPPO A71 is the name of the phone, and it has a 5.2-inch HD display and a clean-looking unibody. The rear doesn’t show any visible antenna lines.


The handset is powered by a MediaTek MT6750 processor with the Mali-T860 MP2 GPU. It comes with an ample 3GB of memory and 16GB of internal storage. For mobile photography, it has a 13-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash and 5-megapixel selfie camera. It’s quite unusual to see the front-facing camera to have this low a number of pixels from OPPO, but the famed beauty mode is still available.

Battery capacity is rated at 3000mAh and we have LTE connectivity with dual-SIM card slots. The phone runs Android Nougat with OPPO’s custom UI called ColorOS 3.1 on top.

It’s currently available for purchase in Malaysia with a price tag of MYR 858 (US$ 202). Black and gold color options are available for the A71.

The phone is also set to be available soon in other Asian countries including the Philippines.

Update: The A71 has been launched earlier today in the Philippines with a price of PhP 8,990 for both offline and online retailers. It’ll be available beginning tomorrow, September 8.

OPPO launches an Avengers-themed F11 Pro

Currently limited to Malaysia

Published

on

Last month, OPPO launched the F11 Pro. The new smartphone flaunts an improved 48-megapixel pop-up camera worthy of its price. Given the company’s recent canning of the R series, the F11 Pro shows a lot of promise for the brand’s smartphone future. OPPO still has its sights set on market domination.

However, the smartphone’s recent release offers another timely opportunity for the brand. In just one to two weeks, the year’s most awaited movie, Avengers: Endgame, will open in theaters around the globe. As always, a new Marvel flick is a prime branding opportunity for a lot of companies. Like others, OPPO is capitalizing on the blockbuster opening.


In Malaysia, OPPO has announced the launch of a limited-edition variant for the F11 Pro. The Marvel’s Avengers Limited Edition sports a snazzy blue back with a red Avengers logo. The variant launched with a promotional video interspersed with shots from the movie’s trailers. Unfortunately, the video does not include the edition’s specifications or bundled accessories.

Very likely, the variant will carry the same specs as the regular F11 Pro. However, given the promotion, the device will likely come with Marvel-themed accessories.

Currently, OPPO is the only one offering an Avengers-themed device. However, more devices might pop up as we draw closer to the opening date. Last year, OnePlus and Acer both released limited editions of their own devices to promote Avengers: Infinity War.

The OPPO F11 Pro carries a Helio P70 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. The battery clocks in a capacity of 4000mAh. However, the Marvel’s Avengers Limited Edition will likely carry a more premium price tag.

Huawei is already working on Mate 30 series

Confirms September launch

Published

on

This week, Huawei finally unveiled the P30 series. The sequel to last year’s successful flagship series has launched the world’s first Leica quad camera. Like last year, Huawei promises another hype-filled year.

Without catching their breath, Huawei has started the hype train for the upcoming Mate 30 series. In a press event in Malaysia, a Huawei official has teased the premium series. According to the official, the company is already testing the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro internally.


Likewise, the official revealed the series’ eventual launch — sometime in September or October. Last year, the Mate 20 launched in October. An October launch for the P30 series makes sense.

As for hardware, Huawei has not revealed any substantial information about the series. However, some rumors have speculated on an improved Kirin 985 chipset. Similarly, Huawei will likely install a 5G modem into the series.

Besides the Mate 30 series, Huawei has also unveiled the foldable Mate X. The company has introduced a lot of amazing features for the year. Based on existing rumors, Huawei will keep the hype going until the end of the year.
