The Chinese consumer electronics brand Oppo has finally confirmed the launch date for its purported mid-range smartphone, the A3 Pro 5G. Later this week, Oppo will launch the IP69-rated handset in three colors. For those catching up, even the most expensive flagships, such as the Galaxy S24 and iPhone 15 series, come with an IP68 water and dust resistance rating. This makes the Oppo A3 Pro 5G a unique offering.

Oppo A3 Pro 5G IP69 Rating, Explained

Before revealing the smartphone’s official launch date, let’s address the elephant in the room – its IP69 rating. Commenting on the announcement, Oppo’s president, Bo Liu, states that the phone “is the world’s first full-level waterproof phone, with military-grade shock resistance and long battery life.” As mentioned, most modern flagships ship with an IP68 rating, but the Oppo A3 Pro 5G’s IP69 rating takes water and dust resistance to the next level.

For those catching up, IP69 is the highest standard of ingress protection for smartphones. While the ‘6’ suggests that the phone is dustproof, the ‘9’ indicates that the phone can withstand high-pressure water jets and high-temperature sprays, which is not valid for IP68-rated smartphones. The IP69 rating is granted to devices that can operate in extreme environments.

Oppo A3 Pro 5G Specifications (Expected)

Dimensity 9300 SoC to be faster than Snapdragon

According to the Chinese tipster Digital Chat Station, the A3 Pro 5G will feature a 6.7-inch FHD OLED screen that supports a 120Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, the smartphone is said to come with the MediaTek Dimensity 7050 processor, which supports 5G connectivity. The processor is paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of RAM. For clicking pictures, the phone has a 64MP (f/1.7) primary sensor. Powering the phone is a 5,000 mAh battery, which might support slightly faster wired charging.

The smartphone could arrive in three colors, including black, rose gold, and light blue. While these are generic color names, the brand’s model name could be different. While the rose gold variant might feature a glass back, the other two could have a vegan leather finish.

Oppo A3 Pro 5G Launch Date

Oppo recently confirmed that the A3 Pro 5G will launch in China on Friday, April 12, 2024, at 02:30 PM local time. The top variant of the smartphone, with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, could cost around CNY 2,399, which is around Rs. 28,000. However, we also expect the company to launch the handset in other storage and RAM configurations, which could be more affordable.
