OPPO India launched the OPPO A78 in India on Tuesday. The smartphone is capable of supporting both the 5G networks of Airtel and Jio. It has a stylish design and is priced at around the affordable mid-range category. It will go on first sale from January 18, 2023, from the official website of OPPO India and Amazon India. The device is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC. Now while this is an old chip, the reason why OPPO has most likely gone with this chip is that it helped with keeping the cost low and delivering 5G at the same time. The chipset costs have soared all over the world, and thus, to keep the devices affordable, the OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) have to cut down on specs in some areas.
