It’s been a while since we last heard of Oppo and today they’re in the news again, this time courtesy of a new handset, the Oppo A33. This model has just debuted officially, with a bunch of specs that place it closer to entry level than midrange.
In September, this device was seen on a TENAA listing and now it has been launched in China. It comes with a pretty solid design and solid build, that includes a metallic frame. Priced at $235, the device’s features remind us a bit of the Redmi 2 from Xiaomi. Oppo A33 comes with a 5 inch 960 x 540 pixel resolution, a quad core Snapdragon 410 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage.
There’s also a microSD card slot in the mix and Android 5.1 as the OS, with the custom ColorOS 2.1 on top from Oppo. Then there’s a 2400 mAh battery in the mix, providing up to 8 hours of talk time and up to 250 minutes of standby functioning. At the back there’s an 8 megapixel camera with LED Flash, while upfront we’ve got a 5 MP selfie shooter.
Oppo A33 is a dual SIM unit, that measures 7.55 mm in thickness and has a glass panel at the back and front. I have to say that the price is kind of high for these specs and if you add a few more bucks, you can get the much better OnePlus X.
