OPPO recently unveiled the R17 in China, which comes with the latest Gorilla Glass 6 protection and displays a “Teardrop” notch. The brand has also sent the media invite for a launch event to be held on August 21 in India where he could launch the F9 Pro. Very recently, the complete datasheet of the OPPO R15 Neo or AX5 – varying by region – was spotted online. Now the same smartphone has been spotted on Taiwan NCC and Indonesia Infocom Media Development Authority hinting at an imminent launch.
The next smartphone was spotted with model number CPH1851, which is different from the PBAM00 and PBAT00 model numbers listed on TENAA earlier. However, reports suggest that the CPH1851 could be the AX5. According to the images identified on the NCC, the next smartphone is seen displaying a dual camera module on the back and a notch screen on the front. The handset has a glass body and misses the fingerprint scanner. We can see the USB Type-C port, the speaker grille and a 3.5mm audio jack at the bottom. The volume buttons are on the left edge of the phone while the power button is on the right. The Indonesian list reveals nothing but the model number of the handset and support for LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
According to the previous leak, the OPPO AX5 is supposed to be equipped with a 6.2 inch HD + display. Driving the performance would be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset. The brand is ready to offer the handset in two configurations of RAM and storage – 3GB + 64GB and 4GB + 64GB. Regarding imaging, the smartphone should be equipped with a 13MP f / 2.2 + 2MP f / 2.4 camera at the back and an 8MP shooter at the front. The phone is expected to start Android 8.1 ColorE based on Oreo 5.1 and draw power from a 4,230 mAh battery.
