Last week Oppo PBFM30 spotted at the TENAA certification. However, the listing lacks the device images. Now TENAA added images of the PBFM30 which reveals the design details. Like most of the latest phones, the PBFM30 is featuring a waterdrop notch. The chassis is made up of metal with glass covering the rear side.
On the rear side, you will get dual cameras aligned horizontally on the top left corner. The fingerprint scanner is in the center below the camera's setup. The new images also confirm the device will be available in Grey color as well alongside the regular Pink and Blue colors. It is still in the dark what will be the commercial name of this device. We can expect more details will appear in the coming days.

From the look of the things, the Chinese giant Oppo is getting ready to announce a new mid-range phone in China. Today a new Oppo branded phone bearing model number PBFM30 appears at TENAA certification. The listing confirms the device has dual cameras setup on the rear and the lights are kept on by a 4,100mAH battery. Like always the listing reveals few key hardware details, unfortunately, the listing didn't have the PBFM30 photos.
The PBFM30 is pre-installed with Android Oreo 8.1. The display is of 6.2-inches with HD+ screen resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels. The device dimensions are 155.9x75.4x8.1 mm and weigh 158g. A fairly large 4,100mAh battery is on board to keep its lights on. Under the hood, an Octa-core chipset is powering the phone with max clocking at 1.8Ghz.
However, it still remains a mystery whether the phone is running on the Qualcomm's chipset or MediaTek SoC. The Octa-core chipset is accompanied by 3GB of RAM and native storage is 64GB. It also supports memory expansion up to 256GB using MicroSD. Like most of the latest phones, it has dual cameras on the rear side, the primary snapper is 13MP whereas the secondary depth-sensing module is 2MP.
The front-facing selfie snapper is 16MP. The device will have a fingerprint scanner. It is still in the dark what will be the final (commercial) name of Oppo PBFM30 and when it will go official. However, the TENAA listing is a clear indication the launch isn't far away. Stay tuned, we will keep you updated.
