OPPO has quietly announced the OPPO A92s mid-range 5G smartphone in China. The phone is the first in the world powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 800 5G SoC announced last December. The SoC allows for manufacturers to make affordable 5G smartphones, and the OPPO A92s is a perfect example.
OPPO has put a starting price of ¥2199 (~$310) on the new phone and it offers quite a lot for that price. It has a 6.57-inch 1080p screen albeit LCD with a 120Hz refresh rate. There is a pill-shaped punch-hole for two selfie cameras (a 16MP sensor and a 2MP sensor with an ultrawide angle lens) at the top left corner of the display.
The OPPO A92s has a squircle-shaped camera module on the back that houses four cameras – a primary 48MP sensor, an 8MP ultrawide angle camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. OPPO has adopted the side-mounted fingerprint scanner design, so you unlock the phone by placing your finger on the power button.
The Dimensity 800 is paired with 6GB or 6GB of RAM and you get 128GB of storage on the variants. There is a 4000mAh battery inside the phone with support for 18W fast charge. OPPO ships the phone with Android 10 out of the box.
The A92s will go on sale on April 29 at 10 AM but you can make a reservation on the official OPPO online shop. As stated above, the base model will sell for ¥2199 (~$310) but if you want the 8GB RAM version, you will have to shell out ¥2499 (~$353). The phone will be available in black and purple.
