Remember the OPPO A77 that launched in Taiwan last month? There's a new variant of the device that surfaced on the Chinese TENAA authority recently. The new model, named OPPO A77t, does not look similar to the current OPPO A77 and is expected to come with quite different specifications and features from the original one. The main difference in the design is on the back panel and the placement of the rear camera. The antenna bands that run horizontally in the original OPPO A77 have shifted to the top and bottom edges in the OPPO A77t. There's also a capsule-shaped camera module which encloses the rear snapper and the LED flash instead of the usual separate placement of the sensor and the flash. It also has a body dimension and body weight of 153.3 x 75.9 x 7.4mm and 148g, which is slightly different from the regular OPPO A77's dimension of 153.3 x 75.2 x 7.2mm and weight of 153g.
Regarding the specs, we can have the recent TENAA listing of the impending OPPO A77 variant as a reference. As per the listing, the OPPO A77t sports a 5.5-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It ships with an Octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz under the hood which could either be a Helio P10 or Snapdragon 625 chipset. The device packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal memory storage. On the camera department, the OPPO A77t features a 13-megapixel rear-facing shooter and a 16-megapixel selfie snapper up front. It runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS out-of-the-box and a battery size of 3115mAh which is comparably smaller than that of the OPPO A77's 3200mAh cell.
The new variant of the OPPO A77 is expected to launch in China this coming August. However, details regarding its pricing and availability are still not known as of the moment.
