OPPO A71 officially shows up online in Malaysia and Pakistan [Updated]

Published

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.

The Samsung Galaxy A80 was first launched in April, also in Bangkok, Thailand along with the Samsung Galaxy A70 which at the time already had a BLACKPINK Edition.

The Galaxy A80 sports a set of triple cameras, octa-core Snapdragon 730G chipset, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, 3700 mAh battery, and 4G LTE support. It also runs Android 9.0 out of the box.

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.
