As I said in my previous article, Oppo is a brand that has been able to make its way to the top of Nepali smartphone market in a very short time. With phones ranging from budget to high end, Oppo is one of the most loved phones among Nepali people.
Well, guess what, to keep the heat on, Oppo has decided to release yet another phone in their budget lineup. Oppo has decided to launch the newer version of Oppo A71, the Oppo A71 “2018”. Will this be able to actually make a dent in the market or will this be a disappointment once again despite the staggering popularity of Oppo phones in Nepal? OPPO A71 2018 price in Nepal is expected to be around Rs. 21,000.
Oppo A71 comes with an Octa-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, which is paired with the Adreno 506 graphics processor. A71 comes with 2 GB of RAM. It also has 16 GB internal storage, which can be increased up to 256 GB using microSD card.
The screen on this device is a 5.2-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The camera setup on this device is pretty good as well considering its price. The rear main shooter in this device is a 13 Megapixel f/2.2 sensor, which is capable of shooting 1080p videos at 30 fps. The front camera is a 5 Megapixel f/2.4 sensor. The battery on this device is a 3000 mAh Lithium-ion battery. The slots in this device consist of a dual sim slot and a microSD card slot.

The Oppo A71 was not able to attract a lot of customers last year. Oppo has decided to release the new device this year and I don’t know what they have been thinking, but releasing a phone with less RAM than its predecessor is kind of a foolishness. Granted that it has a better processor, it is not going to be able to compensate for the less RAM and internal storage. After all, they have just released the Oppo A83, in which you are getting a lot better specs for a couple of grand more. My say is this phone is going to fail miserably.
So, tell us in the comments down below about what you think of the Oppo A71.
