Oppo 3006 recently got certified in Malaysia under SIRIM. SIRIM is Standard and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia-which is an equivalent of FAA in USA and TENNA in China-an organization which upholds standard, promotes quality and technological excellence. Most of the details about the Oppo 3006 are still unknown but based on the other models of this series we can assess the specifications of this model. Two of the specifications that are confirmed about this model are that it will support a 4G LTE connectivity and will have a dual-sim capability. As Oppo 3006 siblings, Oppo 3005 and 3007 were certified in China By TENNA, so the device most probably will sport specifications similar to them. It will be a mid-range pricing smartphone which will sport a 4.7 inch, 720 x 1280 pixel display and an 8-megapixel rear and-5 megapixel front cameras. The smartphone will be equipped with a 1.2GHz processor with 1 GB RAM and 8 GB of internal storage which will be extendable. Dimensions wise, it will be 8.95mm thin and will weigh 126 grams. The Oppo 3006 will run on Android Kit Kat 4.4.4 and most probably will have Oppo’s ColorOs 2.0 interface supporting it. The current specifications are based on assessment of similar models from this series, by the time the smartphone launches, there is a possibility of the some of the specs being different than what is predicted.
As the Oppo 3006 has been certified, it will be launching in Malaysia soon. Oppo currently is banking on expanding its market penetration in South East Asian Markets and Malaysia is very sound choice in that aspect. A July report about Malaysian smartphone market by Ms.Ng Wan Peng indicates that ‘smartphone penetration in Malaysia is 35.8%’ and that it has the highest internet usage of that region and even 3G subscriptions increased by 4 million in just 1 year. So it is logical that Oppo would choose to capitalize the potential of the market there. Oppo in 2014 has already launched N3 and R5 in Malaysia, launching a mid-range smartphone is a good strategic move on their part.
Added below are pictures of Oppo 3005 and 3007 from the TENNA database, to give you an idea how the Oppo 3006 may end up looking like.
