Earlier today, Oppo unveiled the latest entrants to its affordable A-series – the A91 and A8. Both aim to deliver great bang for your buck by offering mid-range specs at aggressive prices. They will be launching in China initially, and we are yet to hear if other markets will get them and when.
The Oppo A91 gets you a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel with a 20:9 aspect ratio and small waterdrop notch up top for the 16 MP selfie cam. Oppo outfitted the device with an in-display fingerprint reader.
Around the back, there’s a quad-camera setup with a 48MP primary shooter, 8MP ultrawide cam, a 2MP macro snapper and 2MP depth helper.
The MediaTek Helio P70 sits at the helm, aided by 8GB RAM and 128GB storage which is expandable via the microSD slot.
The battery comes in at 4,000 mAh and supports 30W VOOC 3.0 fast charging. On the software front, we have ColorOS 6.1 with Android 9 on top.
The A91 comes in Dark Blue, Red and Gradient colors and is up for reservations for CNY 1,999 ($285). Official sales are scheduled to start December 26.
The entry-level A8 comes with a 6.5-inch HD+ IPS panel with the same 20:9 aspect ratio as the A91 and an 8MP selfie cam housed in the waterdrop notch. The back houses a triple camera setup with a 12MP main and two 2MP snappers. There’s also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Under the hood, we have the Helio P35 with 4GB RAM and 128GB of expandable storage. The battery comes in at 4,230 mAh but sadly there’s no fast charging. The software front is covered by ColorOS 6.1 which sits on top of Android 9 Pie.
The Oppo A8 comes in Azure and Black colors and starts at CNY 1,199 ($170) for the 4/128GB model. It’s already up for reservation while official sales again start on December 26.
