The Oppo A5 has finally arrived in India. The handset is competitively priced at Rs. 14,990, approximately around $215 USD, and will be available in both online and offline channels throughout India.
The smartphone features a 6.2-inch HD+ display enclosed in a 2.5D glass panel and is running under the command of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC. Like any smartphones in the market, the A5 also sports a notch where the selfie camera, sensor, and earpiece resides. Because of this notch, the Oppo A5 is a bit taller and narrower than other smartphones in the market at 19:9 aspect ratio display. It comes with the standard 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of expandable storage. The microSD card slot supports up to 256GB microSD card, which is honestly more than enough for most smartphone users.
For the imaging, the Oppo A5 has a pedestrian 8-megapixel selfie camera with a f/2.2 lens. It comes with, as Oppo says, an “AI Beautify” mode and can recognize up to 296 facial features. Flipping back the device and we are greeted with a dual-camera setup. One is a 13-megapixel sensor, and the other is a 2-megapixel depth-sensing camera. As you can tell, it can handle artificial bokeh. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor like most of its competitions. The smartphone relies on Face Unlock (which you rather not use), and the same old password.
The smartphone will run on Oppo’s ColorOS 5.1, on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. Keeping the lights on is the massive 4,230mAh battery which Oppo claims will give users up to 14 hours of video playback, and 11 hours of gaming.
