The most affordable OPPO smartphone w/ 64 bit MT6750 octa core processor!

Inside, this is the most affordable OPPO handset to boasts a 64 bit MT6750 octa core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz that's speedy enough to load most of the casual tasks with ease.

It's also coupled with Mali T860 graphics that can run NBA 2K17 at all low or low and medium settings properly, 3 GB RAM for smooth multitasking, 16 GB of expandable storage thru a dedicated micro SD card slot, and ample 3,000 mAh of battery.

For selfies, it has a 5 MP f/2.4 front camera sensor w/ auto HDR, screen flash, and selfie bokeh mode. Our initial sample shots showed decent details, colors, and proper exposure. The selfie bokeh mode isn't that bad as well.

The rest of the features

The rest of the features includes: WiFi, 3G, LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, OTG, GPS, A GPS, GLONASS, and dual SIM card slots. It also has accelerometer, light, orientation, proximity, gyroscope, sound, and magnetic sensors.

The best part?

It's the very first OPPO smartphone we know in the country that boots with the improved Android 7.1 Nougat OS w/ the newest Color OS 3.1 skin.

The Color OS 3.1 skin has few changes in its UI. The shortcut panel can be accessed by swiping up. It also now has the new OPPO share feature that works like SHAREit app.

What's missing? It has no fingerprint sensor for extra personal security like most sub PHP 10K phones.
