An unreleased Oppo smartphone sporting model code PDYM20 was spotted on Chinese certifying authority TENAA’s website earlier this month. It was assumed to be a Reno series smartphone but turns out that’s not the case since the device has popped up on China Telecom’s website with the moniker Oppo A72 5G.
The listing also includes the images and specs of the Oppo A72 5G. The smartphone supports dual-mode 5G and packs a 6.5″ 90Hz display with a punch hole in the top-left corner for the 8MP selfie camera. Around the back, you get a 16MP primary camera joined by 8MP (likely ultrawide) and 2MP (likely depth sensor) units.
