Oppo A3 has officially been launched in China. It’s safe to say it’s an update to the Oppo A1 smartphone which doesn’t have the notch. Both devices are barely two months apart, and without an A2 smartphone, i think Oppo is trying to take the A series mainstream.
Looks like the company is in a heist with the A3. Nonetheless, it comes with 4GB of RAM, runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and a massive 128GB storage, making this one of the first midrange with such massive storage space.

Unlike the A1, the new A3 comes with an Aluminum Alloy overall unibody and covered exquisitely in glass. This makes the device reflects light in the most subtle way, such a masterpiece. It also looks better than most flagship these days.
Looking at the back, there’s no fingerprint scanner and there was no mention of Face ID during the launch, which is totally weird. Nonetheless, it measures 7.8mm in thickness and weighs just 159g, which is really light. The colors available are Knight Black, Soybean Meal, Stardust Silver and Garnet Red.
This is the first smartphone from Oppo’s A series with the trending notch. The tall display is perfect for huge screen lovers, although the notch might be a turn off to some. It’s obvious the bottom bezel is very hard to get rid off completely, as it keeps popping up everywhere.
Lets take a moment to appreciate this tall glass of screen. The 6.2-inch LTPS IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is really massive. Boasts of 1080 x 2280 pixels in resolution and 405 pixel per inch density displaying stunning visuals. Dishing out a 19:9 aspect ratio and stretching up to 82.5% screen-to-body ratio.

Videos of 1080p@30fps, while the 8MP selfie camera has f/2.2 aperture.
