5G For All: OPPO Adds New 5G Smartphones to A Series Lineup

Smart device leader, OPPO, has today welcomed to its A Series two new 5G smartphones, OPPO A74 5G and OPPO A54 5G, priced at $449 and $399, respectively. With high-end specs and powerful Qualcomm processors, priced affordably for all, OPPO continues making premium possible in the 5G era.

At first glance, OPPO A74 and A54 90Hz screens dazzle with an impressive visual experience and maximised screen real estate with a high 90.5% screen ratio on a 6.49-inch FHD punch-hole LCD display. This is just the tip of the iceberg for the new A Series stars, as the 90Hz refresh rate comes as the baseline for a silky-smooth visual experience, complemented by a 180Hz touch sampling rate. Whether gaming or simply swiping up and down your favorite social network, you won’t be able to resist how the lightest of touches on the OPPO A74 and A54 seem to flow responsively across the screen.

Under the hood, both devices are powered by a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™480 5G platform, meaning users can enjoy a smooth operating smartphone with minimal lag. With more phones in the 5G era supporting dual-mode 5G, the new releases support both Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) networks. Additionally, with OPPO A74 and A54, you’ll enjoy the charged-up benefits of a large 5000mAh battery, coupled with 18W Fast Charge on the OPPO A74 and 10W on the OPPO A54.

Michael Tran, Managing Director at OPPO Australia, believes that the new devices are testament to 5G coming of age in Australia. “What we’re seeing is a two pronged approach to 5G rollout in Australia. On the one hand you have the major carriers accelerating the rollout of the network. Then on the other, you have brands such as OPPO maturing the hardware to make 5G accessible to everyone. With the latest A Series devices, we’re ushering in a new era of affordable luxury,” said Tran.

A highlight of any OPPO phone’s user experience comes down to its ability to capture moments. OPPO A74 and A54 users can make sure that memories are true to life with the 48MP AI Quad Camera, which includes a 48MP main camera, 8MP wide-angle camera, 2MP monochrome camera, and 2MP macro camera. And of course, those selfie moments with the 16MP front-facing camera.

Where the A74 and A54 differ are in their internal storage capabilities, as the A74 boasts 6GB of memory and a large 128GB of storage. Whereas, the A54 offers an even more affordable price tag with 4GB of memory and 64GB of storage. Both devices allow for up to 256GB microSD expandability, giving users ample storage to capture more of life’s moments.
