The Oppo A6 is said to be a smartphone that can replace your smartphone of the past. When you are looking for a phone with all the right features, you want one that will not leave you wishing you had got something with a little more pizzazz. Luckily, this smartphone has all of the features you need. While it may not have everything that the best phones have, it does have enough to make it worth your while.
We already know that the Oppo A6 is coming out in India sometime in the next month or so. If you are thinking about buying one through an Indian retailer, you are probably in for a big surprise. No major smartphone manufacturer has launched in India before and the ones that have been few and far between. The whole scenario is changing now with the launch of the Oppo A6 and other phones by other companies from countries like China and Malaysia. Since we cannot expect too many major players from India, who would release their phones here in the near future?
So, if you are wondering about when the Oppo A6 will be coming out in the market, you are likely to be disappointed with what you find out. The company did not announce any of its features today. However, we did find out that the Oppo A6 has an impressively large rear display as well as a 4.5-inch screen on the front. The fingerprint scanner located at the bottom edge of the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor doubles up as a volume button, which is a nice touch.
Since the Oppo A6 was launched in Indonesia, one would expect that the company had considered launching it in India as well. However, according to reliable sources, the smartphone has not yet been launched in India. It is expected that the smartphone will be launched along with the Oppo A5, a mid-budget smartphone by the company. This was first spotted by Android Central, a portal that aggregates all the latest news for the gadget.
In the meantime, the Oppo A6 looks like it has inherited the legacy of the Oppo A5, which launched back in April this year. In that phone, the company has introduced a number of new features, including a near-field communications (NFC) chip, in-built FM radio, BTE and HSDPA. Apart from that, the A series also offers some interesting features, which differentiate it from its predecessors. For example, the Oppo A6 has an eight megapixel camera which is a significant increase from the five-megapixel cameras present in the predecessors. It also offers users enhanced video features.
According to our sources, the Oppo A6 is likely to replace the Oppo A5, which has already been launched in stores. The company is yet to decide on whether the smartphone will be available through online or offline means. An executive from the Oppo company told us, “We are discontinuing the Oppo A series as we are introducing the new smartphone in markets. We cannot comment on the timeframe or the price point.”
We also know that the device will be made available via Vodafone in the United Kingdom. Vodafone is one of the leading mobile operators in the UK and is home to some of the best smartphones in the world. With the availability of the Oppo A series, it would be easy for people living in the UK to switch over to this network. This move is expected to boost the sales of Oppo A6 to an impressive level as people are more interested in buying an affordable smartphone than buying a feature-rich high-end device, especially if they have to spend a decent amount on their phones every month.
So, will the Oppo A series be available online or offline? Well, according to the person cited above the company is yet to reveal any information about the launch. In fact, there are rumors about the release of the next Nokia Easia in India also. If you want to buy one, you should log onto the Oppo A6 official website, where you will be able to find the latest pricing and product details of the smartphone. If you are planning to buy one, hurry up, as the final shipment of the second gen smartphone is scheduled to take place on April 2nd.
