Today, was finally the day when the OPPO Find X in its Standard variant was officially launched for a “mere” 4999 Yuan ($748). At the same time, the Chinese phone maker also released the new OPPO A5, coming in two colors: Mirror Blue and Mirror Powder, and an actually affordable price tag of 1500 Yuan ($224).
The main highlight on the OPPO A5 is probably its expected autonomy, packing a large 4230mAh battery which, believe it or not, is a first for the company – they had never equipped an “A” series device with a battery this big. A big battery paired with a power hungry processor is worthless though, but that isn’t the case.
The OPPO A5 is indeed boasting a super power efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 450, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
According to official data, the machine is able to play videos for about 14 hours or play games for about 11 hours, so you’re getting a pretty incredible battery life. OPPO also revealed that the OPPO A5 is equipped with an “quick application freeze” feature, which can intelligently and automatically freeze power consumption for some apps when it “thinks” it’s necessary.
Other specs on the OPPO A5 include a large 6.2-inch 19:9 top notched display, a dual camera setup comprised of a 13MP and a 2MP shooter that can snap photos with a bokeh effect. We then find an 8MP sensor for selfies with AI beauty and ColorOS 5.1 based on Android 8 Oreo as the OS.
