Oppo has mistakenly listed a new smartphone on its official website, hinting at the arrival of a smartphone dubbed Oppo A73s. The smartphone’s design and specifications have been leaked in entirety, thanks to this slip up, and the specifications as well as the design are identical to the Realme 1 launched in India last month. The smartphone is listed in Solar Red and Diamond Black colour options. The Oppo A73s could be the international variant of the Realme 1 smartphone. Pricing and availability have not yet been announced.
A report from ePrice suggests that the Oppo A73s price in Taiwan will be TWD 8,990 (roughly Rs. 20,000), and that the smartphone can be launched officially sometime later this month. To recall, the Realme 1 price in India starts at Rs. 8,990 for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant, at Rs. 10,990 for the 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant, while the top-model with 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage has been priced at Rs. 13,990.
Oppo A73s specifications
The dual-SIM (Nano+Nano) Oppo A73s runs ColorOS 5.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. It sports a 6-inch full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) display with 84.8 percent screen-to-body ratio, and is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 SoC with ARM Mali G72 MP3 GPU and 4GB RAM.

There’s also a depth effect, vivid mode, and more AI features inbuilt, including 120 scene recognition. The smartphone also has a Face Unlock feature (said to unlock the smartphone in 0.1 seconds), but it doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor.
