5-inch, P8,990 OPPO A37 available on July 1

OPPO’s new budget phone blends style (lovely 2.5D curved glass) and toughness (Gorilla Glass 4 plus a magnesium aluminum alloy body) in a 5-inch HD, quad-core, 2GB RAM package – the P8,990 OPPO A37.

The OPPO A37 has triple-slot tray for two 4G-enabled sims and one tray for micro SD storage expansion. This is a good feature as other phones that offer dual slot trays force you to have either two active SIMs or just one active SIM, with the other slot dedicated for micro SD expanded storage.
