Oppo has added a new entry-level phone to its portfolio and this one is called Oppo A12. Interestingly, Oppo appears to have taken a leaf out of Realme’s book – the company’s own spin-off brand – and has given the Oppo A12 a diamond-cut design treatment on the rear panel that we’ve seen on multiple Realme phones so far.
