Oppo has finally released its affordable A52 in India. The phone’s initial announcement came all the way back in April, so this was a long time coming, but the A52 is now available from both Flipkart and Amazon.
It’s priced at INR 16,990 ($222 or 198 at the current exchange rates). If you’re wondering what you’re getting for that amount of money, we’re talking about a handset with a 6.5-inch 1080×2400 LCD touchscreen, a quad rear camera (12 MP wide, 8 MP ultrawide, 2 MP macro, 2 MP depth), a 16 MP selfie snapper, the Snapdragon 665 chipset at the helm (with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage), and a 5,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 10 with ColorOS 7.1 on top.
The fingerprint is side-mounted, and Oppo promises the back is fingerprint resistant somehow. The battery supports 18W fast charging via USB-C.
