Earlier this week, OPPO silently launched the A73 which happens to be a rebadged OPPO F17. The F17 was equally launched in India last month. A 5G variant of the OPPO A73 has been spotted online, an indication that the company may soon release the 5G variant.
The specs, price and images of the device have appeared online, thanks to Twitter tipster @Sudanshu1414. It is noteworthy that the A73 5G features a different design from the non-5G variant. Also, the internal components have a few differences.
First, the OPPO A73 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chipset while this 5G variant is listed as packing a MediaTek Dimensity 720 chipset. The display size is also different as this rumoured 5G variant features a 6.5-inch FullHD+ LCD screen with a waterdrop notch at the top. Surprisingly, the non-5G version packs 6.44-inch FullHD+ AMOLED screen. However, the A73 5G’s display has a 90Hz refresh rate and a hole punch situated at the upper-left corner which houses an 8MP selfie shooter as against 16MP on the A73.
At the rear aspect, the phone sports a triple camera setup as opposed to four sensors on the 4G version. As a sensor is removed, the LED flash is moved inside the camera module. Under the hood, the A73 5G packs a 4,040 mAh with support for 18W fast charge. It really doesn’t make sense to reduce the charging speed on the 5G version from 30W to 18W.
As for the expected price, the OPPO A73 5G is expected to retail for €299 ($350) in Europe. Buyers will have the opportunity to choose from two colour options – Neon and Black.
