Usually, the same model costs more in the global market rather than in China. So it’s often beneficial to get hands on new smartphones by directly buying from Chinese stores. If you still doubt, just compare the prices of Xiaomi or Huawei smartphones. Of course, there are serious reasons – tax rates and operators. In this sense, the newly launched OPPO A94 is one of the best examples.
After launching the OPPO A94 4G version in the UAE, today, it also hit the European market. But this model supports 5G networks.
OPPO A94 5G Features
The OPPO A94 5G version sports the MediaTek Dimensity 800U processor. It uses an AMOLED screen with a 6.43-inch 1080P resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate. There is a hole in the upper left corner, which hosts a 16MP camera. On the opposite side, the phone carries a quad-camera, which consists of a 48MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide angle lens, and two 2MP macro and depth of field lenses. The battery inside has a 4310mAh capacity and supports 30W fast charge.
The OPPO A94 5G currently only has a version of 8GB RAM+128GB ROM, which is priced at 359 Euros. It is offered in fluid black and cosmic blue colors, and will go on sale on May 3.
Phones Cost Less In China
As you can see, a model with such a configuration can be sold for nearly 3,000 yuan (384 Euros) in the European market. However, in China, many will ignore it. After all, the MediaTek Dimensity 800U was hot last year. And now, in China, smartphones with this processor cost around 1300 yuan (166 Euros) at most. On the contrary, for 2800 yuan (358 Euros), you can buy models with the Snapdragon 870 platform or even with the Snapdragon 888 platform.
So it turns out for Chinese manufacturers it’s quite beneficial to sell their products globally. On the other hand, this is one of the main reasons why the Chinese smartphones are so competitive.
