Oppo announced the new A73 earlier this week, which is a rebranded F17 that was launched in India last month. Now the company is gearing up to bring a 5G version of the A73 to Europe, as its specs, price and images have surfaced.
This isn’t just a 5G-ready variant of the A73, mind you, the A73 5G has a different design and substantial differences to the internals compared to the non-5G model.
For starters, the Oppo A73 is powered by the Snapdragon 662 SoC, while the 5G version will have a Dimensity 720 chipset at the helm. The 4G model packs a 6.44″ FullHD+ AMOLED screen with a waterdrop notch up top, but the A73 5G will sport a 6.5″ FHD+ 90Hz LCD having a punch hole in the upper-left corner for the selfie camera, which is down from 16MP to 8MP.
The number of cameras on the back has also come down – from four to three. Oppo has removed a 2MP unit and moved the flash inside the camera island.
The battery size on the A73 5G has increased to 4,040 mAh, but the maximum charging speed has been reduced from 30W to 18W.
The rest of the highlights of the Oppo A73 5G include Android 10-based ColorOS 7.2, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, side-mounted fingerprint reader, 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C port, and NFC.
The A73 5G is 7.9mm thick, weighs 177 grams, and is said to cost €299 ($350) in Europe. It will be available in two colors – Neon and Black.
