Oppo A5 goes official with 4,230mAh battery, Snapdragon 450, dual camera

George, 07 July 2018

Oppo's latest midranger has gone official and it is, after all, the Oppo A5, and not A3s. The TENAA listing gave us most of the details a few days ago, but now it's set in stone.

The Oppo A5 comes with a 6.2-inch LCD with a 1,520x720px resolution in a 19:9 aspect ratio. It goes without saying that there's a notch up top.

The chipset in charge is the Snapdragon 450 with its octa-core CPU clocked at 1.8GHz. The official website says 4GB of RAM, but the regulator listing mentioned a 3GB version too - perhaps later on. Internal storage is 64GB with a microSD slot offering the possibility for expansion.

There's a dual camera on the back with a 13MP f/2.2 primary shooter and an additional 2MP f/2.4 module for depth detection - portrait mode confirmed. Over on the front, an 8MP cam takes selfies.

The handset measures 156.2x75.6x8.2mm and weighs in at 168g. Mind you, that's with a large 4,230mAh battery inside. Couple that with the efficient 14nm chip, and the A5 promises excellent battery life.

The Oppo A5 is listed for pre-order with sales starting on July 13. Price is set at CNY1500 or some $225.

P60 is equivalent to 636, not 660. The multi core scores might match 660 but otherwise it's strictly midrange. The GPU too isn't anywhere close to 660. 820/821 is still in a league of it's own compared to these 3 especially in GPU terms. And u r ri...

And you're saying?? It was possibly their gaming ROG phone that made the $500 SD845 flagship Zenfone 5Z to be true, not that unwanted OP6 which I doubt 15% of the people in the world knows. Obviously they would have to go to a more competitive pr...
