Chinese smartphone brand Oppo has recently introduced Oppo A15 and thereby refreshing its existing A series of smartphones. Although the Oppo A15 is a budget phone with a price tag of $140 (approximately N55,000) but still has interesting features that will appeal to those who don’t wanna spend much on a smartphone. A triple camera system at the back is the main feature of the Oppo A15. Check out the specs below.
The Oppo A15 has a 6.52-inch HD+ LCD screen with a resolution of 1600×720 pixels, a pixel density of 269PPI, and has a screen-to-body ratio of 88.7 percent. The phone has a huge screen and it is ideal for watching videos. The device has a typical Brightness of 480nit and this is enough to comfortably use the phone during daylight.
The Oppo A15 has a triple camera setup on the back and it consists of a 13 MP(f/2.3) main camera, a 2MP(f/2.4) macro lens, and a 2 MP (f/2.4) depth sensor. A 5MP (f/2.4) is available on the front side for selfies.
The device is driven by Mediatek MT6765 Helio P35 (12nm) octa-core processor with PowerVR GE8320 GPU. This is combined with 3GB RAM and an internal capacity of 32 GB which can be expanded via microSD card. The processor is not well suited to handle heavy games such as PUBG or multitask smoothly.
There is a 4,230 mAh battery in the Oppo A15 and does not support fast charging technology. Instead, it comes with standard 10W charging, this is slow and can take more than 2hrs before reaching 100%. Moreover, the battery is capable of providing a backup of more than a day on a single charge.
The device runs on the Android 10 operating system with ColorOS 7.2 as the custom UI. As a custom UI, some third-party apps that come pre-installed with the device can be found. But you can disable or uninstall them if you do not want them.

Oppo A15 price in Nigeria & availability
The price of the Oppo A15 was set at US$140 (approximately N55,000) and it is currently available for sale in India in two color options: Dynamic Black and mystery Blue.
There is no official confirmation on the availability of the device outside India but the company may announce its release date outside India in the next coming weeks. Nonetheless, we estimate the Oppo A15 price in Nigeria to range between N55,000 to N60,000.
The Oppo A15 has all the features that can comfortably run day-to-day activities like calls, messaging, watching videos, and playing casual games. However, if you are looking for a phone with a good camera and good performance, you better look for something else but be ready to increase your budget.
Furthermore, Oppo A15 may face serious competition in this price segment which is already flooded with numerous options. With the launch of the Realme 5 series phones, for instance, Realme has recently established a foothold in this price range. Then there is Motorola Moto G9, which comes with better capabilities for the processor and camera.
The features that Oppo A15 has to give users are the large screen and triple camera setup. Another attraction of the phone is the 4230mAh battery capacity. But then, these are the features that every budget phone provides today. There is no standout feature.
