OPPO Launches the A Series 2020 Where Premium Meets Affordability
Smartphone maker OPPO today announced the launch of its latest range of smartphones, the A Series 2020, which come packed with premium features at affordable prices. The first device available from the series is the A9 2020, followed by the Telstra exclusive, A5 2020.
Both models feature multi-purpose quad camera technology, dual stereo speakers and a massive 5,000mAh ultra battery with reverse charging. Priced from $299 the OPPO A Series 2020 delivers an immersive entertainment experience and powerful performance without breaking the bank.
OPPO’s A-series has always been at the forefront of leading innovation in entry level smartphone devices. Michael Tran, Managing Director at OPPO Australia, believes the A Series 2020 sets the tone for what is possible for entry level devices.
“The A Series 2020 is OPPO’s latest premium but affordable range of devices, giving Aussies access to beautifully designed smartphones with cutting edge features. At OPPO we believe our customers shouldn’t have to compromise on quality or design when purchasing an entry level device.
“By combining quality and affordability with superb photography, beautiful design and long lasting battery life, the A Series 2020 will set a new standard in the entry level smartphone market. Providing Aussies with a choice of smartphones that will excite and delight without the hefty price tag,” said Tran.
A picture perfect camera set up
The OPPO A9 2020 comes with a multipurpose quad camera setup, including a 48MP main camera + 8MP ultra-wide lens + 2MP mono lens + 2MP portrait lens. The OPPO A5 2020 is similar but swaps for a 12MP main camera. The new quad cameras are engineered to capture every detail no matter the scenario.
The primary lens improves image clarity with higher resolution, while the 119° ultra-wide-angle lens makes it easier for everyone, and everything to fit into a single photo with added depth and dimension. The mono lens and portrait lens allows creators to add retro and atmospheric filters to portrait shots, for better personalisation of their images.
OPPO’s latest stabilisation technology meets Aussies’ growing demand for high-quality video content, with both models having a built-in gyroscope, enabling smoother filming for in-motion activities such as running, walking or cycling. As well as improved video filters that allow users to create their own movies with the press of a button.
Ultra Night Mode 2.0 allows users to create in the dark, enhancing pictures taken in super low light while HDR and multi-frame technology shoots multiple images continuously, reducing the noise, and combining them into one perfect clear image. Whether capturing bright city lights or dim country nights, with the A Series 2020 users never have to deal with dark, grainy photos again.
The A Series 2020 are equipped with a 16MP selfie camera and use AI beautification technology for natural and effortless selfies.

The A9 2020 features a 6.5” immersive screen and has a 89% screen-to-body ratio, along with Corning Gorilla Glass 3+. Additionally, the device features a Sunlight Screen for improved readability under strong direct light, while a blue light filter relieves eye fatigue and provides better protection.
