Oppo has announced another affordable smartphone dubbed Oppo A55 5G. This device comes with notable features such as a 5,000 mAh battery, a triple-camera setup at the back and a Mediatek Dimensity 700 chipset.
Moving unto the rear end of the smartphone, there is a triple-camera setup – the main 13MP with an f/2.2 lens and two 2MP f/2.4 auxiliary shooters – one for extra depth of portrait shots, the other for close-ups. Due to the chipset’s limitations, Oppo A55 5G records videos up to 1080p at 30fps, while slow-mo clips are capped at 720p.
The Dimensity 700 chipset has its powerful Cortex-A76 cores running at 2.2 GHz and six power-efficient Cortex-A55 units clocked at 2GHz. The chip is accompanied by 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage and Oppo provided the A55 5G with a MicroSD slot for further expansion. Oppo A55 5G has a 5,000 mAh battery for power that charges through a USB-C port.
The phone is already up for sale at Oppo’s own distribution channels across China, including major online retailers like Tmall and Suning. It costs CNY1,599, which is about $245/€200.
