Oppo has launched OPPO A2X 5G an affordable handset with a Dimensity 6020 chipset and only one camera on the back, and a price starting from (the equivalent of) $150.
First of all, the phone packs a 6.56″ 90Hz LCD screen, is powered by Dimensity 6020 SoC, which is a rebranded Dimensity 700. It has up 8GB RAM and additional 8GB of virtual RAM.
There is a waterdrop notch at the top for a 5 MP selfie camera. The lone snapper on the back is 13 MP with f/2.2 aperture and LED flash below.
The 7nm chipset has 6 GB or 8 GB LPDDR4X RAM, paired to 128 GB or 256 GB storage, respectively. The Oppo A2x has a microSD slot on the left side; the right is for the power key, doubling as a fingerprint scanner.
The A2x comes with a 5,000 mAh battery, but there is no word on charging speeds, suggesting a lowly rate.
