“OPPO A31 is expected to come with a MediaTek chipset, waterdrop notch and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity”
An OPPO phone with model number CPH2015 was certified by the IMDA and NBTC agencies recently, and this revealed the handset’s marketing name as OPPO A31. Although it was listed as Reno S by the Indonesian certification agency TKDN. Now, the handset has bagged Bluetooth SIG certification, hinting its imminent launch. The listing suggests the OPPO A31 will have a 6.5-inch HD+ display and will be powered by a 2GHz octa-core MediaTek processor. While the chipset’s name isn’t revealed, it could be the Helio P70 or P60. Furthermore, the handset will have LTE, Bluetooth 5.0 LE, and dual-band Wi-Fi support.
The OPPO A31 is said to pack a 4,230mAh battery, but it’s unclear whether the phone supports fast charging. In terms of software, the handset is likely to boot Android 9.0 Pie with ColorOS 6.1.2 custom skin on top. The FCC certification revealed it could have a waterdrop notch on the front to accommodate the selfie snapper and the USB Type-C port, speaker grill, and a 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom. The volume rocker is placed on the left, while the power button is present on the right side. Given that multiple agencies have now certified the OPPO A31, the launch might be right around the corner.
