Oppo mobile has launched yet another budget 4G smartphone in its home market, China. The smartphone that is now on sale on Oppo’s official website, and is priced approximately ₹16,000 which is pretty high considering the features that the smartphone offers and even what the competition has on offer.

At this price point, the Oppo A33 can compete with Motorola Moto G Gen 3 and Xiaomi Mi 4i.
The Oppo A33 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with the ColorOS 2.1 skin on top. It features a 5-inch (540x960 pixels) TFT display with a pixel density of 220ppi. The new Oppo smartphone is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC coupled with 2GB of RAM. It supports dual-SIM cards with one Micro-SIM and one Nano-SIM card.

The latter can be further expanded via microSD of up to 128GB. Moreover, the Color OS has a built-in Automatic Cleaner that optimizes phone performance with just one tap. The Quick Shake feature, on the other hand, performs various different home screen functions such as automatically sorting icons on the screen.
Sporting an 8-megapixel rear autofocus camera, the Oppo A33 also sports a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. It bears 16GB of built-in storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB).
