Oppo has unveiled yet another affordable Android smartphone in China. It is Oppo A55 with 5G support and it is already up for sale in its homeland.
The Oppo A55 5G features a design, which is pretty generic in affordable phones. There is a teardrop-style notch on the front and multiple cameras on the back, with an arrangement that falls in sync with most of the arrangements we see in other phones.
The Oppo A55 5G carries a triple camera setup on its rear panel and this array includes a 13MP main sensor with an f/2.2 lens, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP portrait sensor. The arrangement can help you record 1080p videos at 30fps and slow-mo clips at 720p. On the front, the phone is housing an 8MP sensor with an f/2.0 aperture.
The Oppo A55 5G is powered by Dimensity 700 processor that MediaTek launched last year in November to power affordable 5G phones. It is an octa-core processor built on a 7nm process. It includes two Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2GHz. Outlining the importance of the Dimensity 700 chipset, Oppo mentions the processor lets the phone have dual-mode and dual-standby 5G support. The chipset configuration is further coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.
The all-new Oppo A55 5G runs ColorOS 11 and is equipped with some AI power. The phone carries a 5000mAh battery and with such a large capacity, Oppo claims that it has managed to deliver a thing and lightweight phone.
The Oppo A55 5G features a 6.5-inch LCD display with HD+ resolution and a standard 60Hz refresh rate. Although the chipset has the capability to support a 90Hz refresh rate, Oppo chose to stick to the very common 60Hz to cut down the overall cost of the device.
The price of the Oppo A55 5G is 1,599 yuan (~$245). It is up for sale at the company’s official website and across its offline distribution channels in China. It comes in Brisk Blue and Rhythm Black color options.
