Oppo has launched a new budget mid-range phone Oppo A55 in India. The name is similar to the Oppo A55 5G launched earlier this but is a slightly different product. The biggest difference is obviously that the Indian version does not offer 5G connectivity. There are also a few other differences including the product design. This model comes with a punch-hole display as compared to a notched one on the global version.
The Oppo A55 sports a 6.52-inch HD+ (1600 x 720 pixels) display with a dew-drop notch. The panel offers the standard 60Hz refresh rate with 480 nits of peak brightness and 269ppi pixel density. Under the hood, it has the MediaTek Helio G35 processor coupled with 4GB and 6GB of RAM. The phone has 64GB and 128GB onboard storage variants with microSD card support.
There is a triple camera module features a 50-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, a 2-megapixel macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The front camera on the phone is a 16-megapixel sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and housed within the punch-hole.
The whole package is powered by a 5,000mAh battery that should last at least a day with ease. It will run ColorOS 11 based on Android 11 out of the box. Other noteworthy features include a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, Bluetooth v5, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The Oppo A55 is priced at INR 15,490 for the 4GB/64GB variant and at INR 17,490 for the 6GB/128GB variant. The color options include Starry Black and Rainbow Blue. The first sale of the phone will begin on October 3rd.
