Announced earlier in March 2019, the Oppo A5s has finally been released for the masses.
With an affordable price tag, the A5S is yet another addition to Oppo’s budget smartphone lineup with fairly decent specs.
Display and Design
The design of the phone is nothing out of the ordinary when compared to other Oppo phones, but still good looking nonetheless. The 6.2-inch, IPS LCD screen has very thin bezels at the edges and a small teardrop notch at the top. The HD+ screen has the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection and it has a pixel density of 271 ppi.
The phone is available in Red, Black, Gold and Green hues.
Internals and Storage
With the A5s you have two different choices when it comes to variants. You can either get a 32GB variant with 3GB of RAM or a 64GB one with 4 gigs of RAM. All of the variants are powered by an octa-core processor over the Helio P35 chipset.
For now, the company has only announced the 2GB RAM variant which is available for purchase.
At the back of the phone, above the fingerprint sensor, is a dual rear camera setup which houses a 13MP primary sensor and a 2MP secondary sensor. You also get an LED flash and the ability to capture panorama shots and HDR photos.
The front-facing 8MP sensor is also able to capture HDR photos.
Battery and Pricing
Considering the mid-ranger specs the phone brings, the massive 4,230mAh battery should easily last you through 2 days of use.
While the price for the 4GB RAM variant has not been announced, the 2GB variant is available for purchase for roughly $143.
