The major features of Oppo A72 are: it got a 6.5-inch FHD+ panel at front with a punch hole at the top left corner, Quad rear camera setup, Snapdragon 665 chipset, etc. 

Display and Design

The front of the device got a 6.5-inch edge to edge display with a punch hole at the top left corner. The display has an FHD+(1080X2400 pixels) IPS LCD panel. The screen got an 83% screen to body ratio and 20:9 aspect ratio. It is available in three different color variants, black, white, and purple. The phone looks beautiful and has gorilla glass 3 protection at both the front and back panel. The display panel can provide a good viewing angle and color saturation but is not as great as that of OLED or AMOLED panels.

Chipset and Performance

To power the Oppo A72, Snapdragon 665 chipset is used with Adreno 610 GPU. with this CPU and GPU, normal casual daily tasks can be performed without any issues. You can watch videos, make calls, surf social media, etc. But doing heavy graphics-intensive tasks like playing games in the high setting will lag the device. It comes with either 4 or 8GB RAM option. Similarly, users are getting 128GB internal storage with a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion. In 2020, it would be great if Oppo used the latest mid-range chipset like Snapdragon 765 in smartphones. 


Oppo A72 features a quad rear camera setup with a rectangular camera housing seen in the Galaxy S20 series and Huawei P40 series. They implemented a 48MP primary sensor with an 8MP ultrawide lens. Similarly, there is a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP B/W lens. With this sensor, it can record up to 4K video in 30 fps and FHD videos up to 120fps. 

At the front, there is a 16MP selfie shooter embedded in a punch hole that can record FHD videos. The photos and video quality of the device will be decent. We will let you know more detail on photo and video quality once this device is officially launched in Nepal.
