Last February, OPPO launched a new mid-range budget smartphone, the OPPO A31 (2020), which brought in a number of notable highlights in terms of design and camera. This smartphone with the announced price of VND 4,490,000 promises to help OPPO have more “fire” to compete with other manufacturers in the market in the price segment of less than 5 million.
OPPO over the past 1 year has gradually “lifted” itself up when almost focusing entirely on the mid-range and high-end segments thanks to the outstanding success of the Reno line. However, not so that OPPO “abandoned” the cheap segment. And although OPPO A31 was launched with the price of less than 5 million, but the device is still “elaborate” in design as well as comes with some outstanding highlights about the camera, battery life …
OPPO A31 and all accompanying accessories, including: flexible silicon case, 5V / 2A charger, microUSB charging cable
OPPO A31 has a youthful and eye-catching design, especially with this Fantasy White color version, the machine has a gentle and attractive gradient effect. In addition, OPPO A31 also has another color option is Mystery Black (black).
This back is made from plastic, but not fake plastic like on many other products of the same price range, but rough plastic. The advantage of this rough plastic material is that it is hard to be scratched, leaving no fingerprints and especially holding it extremely hard
The back of OPPO A31 is also home to three main cameras, which includes a separate macro camera. Right next to it is the words “Designed for A-series” and the middle of the back is a one-touch fingerprint sensor, for convenient operation as well as fast unlocking speed.
Below is the familiar “OPPO” logo
On the front, OPPO A31 is equipped with a 6.5-inch screen, using IPS LCD panel with HD + resolution (720 x 1600), display ratio of 20: 9
This screen has a “water drop” design with thin bezels. The screen cut is where the speaker and 8MP selfie camera are located
The bottom of the screen is a bit thick, but this is acceptable for a cheap device like OPPO A31
This screen of OPPO A31 has a relatively high brightness, the use in harsh lighting conditions is still comfortable
At the bottom of the device is the place where the 3.5mm headphone jack, microphone, charger port and speaker strip are. One downside is that while all other manufacturers have upgraded to the newer USB-C standard, OPPO A31 still uses the microUSB standard.

And the right side is the sim slot and volume key cluster
The device supports 2 sims and a separate memory card, users can use both sims and memory cards at the same time, without sacrificing either memory card or 2nd
