From 221.40 euros to change
The OPPO A36 is a mid-range that mainly shines with its memory configuration. It will be marketed, at least in China, in an 8 + 256 GB version, impressive sums for a mid-range. Of course, we are faced with LPDDR4X and UFS 3.1 technologies respectively.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon that this OPPO is mounting is a 4G platform, so this A36 is not up to date in terms of connectivity
As for the processor chosen, we are facing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, a 4G platform manufactured using the 6 nanometer process, a processor a little below the Snapdragon 480+ 5G.
The panel is one of the weak points of the terminal, which has an HD + resolution for its 6.56 inches. The good thing is that it has a 90Hz refresh rate, in addition to a 180Hz touch sample rate.
To power the set, we find a 5000 mAh battery with a fast charge of 10 W. The other points in favor of this OPPO are the 3.5 mm connectivity and the side fingerprint reader, accompanied by a 2D facial recognition via the camera.
Unambitious cameras and Android 11
Photographically, this OPPO is pretty basic. It has a 13-megapixel main sensor, as well as a 2-megapixel sensor that’s supposed to help with portrait mode. The selfie camera is 8 mega-pixel.
As for the software, it has Android 11 customized with ColorOS 11. The update to Android 12 should not take long, being such a recent mobile.
OPPO A36 versions and prices
The OPPO A36 was launched in China at a price of around 220 euros at the change in its 8 + 256 GB version. It is still not known whether it will eventually reach the international market and, if so, we will put update this message with the corresponding price.
