OPPO launches the A52 and A72 mid-range smartphones in Germany for under €250
OPPO launched the Find X2 series in Germany late last month, a couple of months after the devices were first unveiled globally. As part of the series, OPPO launched the flagship Find X2 Pro in the country, along with the new Find X2 Neo and Find X2 Lite. Now, the company has added two more devices to its portfolio in the country — the OPPO A52 and OPPO A72.
The new mid-range devices from OPPO were first spotted online earlier this year in April when German tech blog Winfuture shared leaked renders of the devices along with a few key specifications. OPPO has now listed the A52 and A72 on its website in Germany and the devices are available for purchase on German eCommerce platform OTTO for €199 (~$225) and €249 (~$282), respectively.
