Oppo A5 Design
According to the listing the Oppo A5 will be released in China on 13th July with reservations already going live. The A5 features a glass and metal body with a pattern on the back that is reminiscent of the Realme 1. It lacks a fingerprint scanner and relies solely on Face Unlock. It will be available in Mirror Blue and Mirror Powder (Pink). The front is similar to a lot of Oppo phones unveiled recently. A notch up top with barely any bezels on the sides and a little bit of chin.
The specifications and design of the A5 bear uncanny resemblance to the recently leaked Oppo A3S. The only visible difference is the lack of a patterned back on the A3S. Other than the that, both the smartphones are pretty much the same. Little is known when the A3S would see the light of day. But the launch does not seem very far.
Pricing and Availability
The Oppo A5 is priced at 1500 Yuan (~$225). Going by the specs and pricing, the phone will cater to the mid-range market. It is available for reservations and will be available to buy starting on the 13th of July at 10 AM.
