Oppo has a new phone coming and it’s not the R9 or one of its relatives. Instead, it’s the Oppo A59m, a midranger that gets detailed and pictured below. We don’t see Oppo phones with a oval Home buttons very often, but this time we stumbled upon one.


Seem from the front it totally resembles an iPhone, but what phone doesn’t nowadays? Oppo A59m is pretty slim, at 7.3 mm in waistline and it weighs 160 grams, so it’s quite heavy. It packs a 2980 mAh battery and has a 5.5 inch TFT screen with a 720p resolution to confirm it belongs to the mid tier of the midrange area.


The smartphone runs Android 5.1 and relies on 3 GB of RAM and an octa core 1.5 GHz CPU to get the job done. The camera combo is predictable: 13 MP at the back and 8 MP at the front. Finally, there’s 16 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and what looks like a metallic body. Expect a price around $200 or less.
