A Remarkable FHD+ Sunlight Display

On the front of the phone, the new A79 5G features a 6.72-inch large FHD+ Sunlight Display with a top-centre punch hole, ensuring a larger screen for enhanced and immersive gaming and audio-visual experience.

The display’s 680 nits peak brightness makes it easy to read text even in the midday sun. On top of this, the high 1080 × 2400 resolution and support for a 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut provide substantially enhanced colour saturation and colour accuracy to deliver more impactful visuals with more realistic and vibrant colours.

Upgraded Dual Stereo Speakers with Ultra Volume Mode

To match this outstanding display and deliver a more all-round immersive entertainment experience, the A79 5G is equipped with new Dual Stereo Speakers. Combined with the in-built algorithms, the Dual Stereo Speakers offer optimised noise reduction and echo suppression for clearer calls in any situation. Meanwhile, enhanced surround sound allows for better immersion in entertainment.

Outstanding Photography for Every Occasion

For better imaging experiences, the OPPO A79 5G comes equipped with a powerful camera system comprising a 50MP AI Camera, a 2MP Portrait Camera, and an 8MP Selfie Camera. Using the main camera and its super-resolution algorithms, it’s now possible to capture 108MP Ultra-Clear Images filled with intricate details. Meanwhile, a series of creative imaging features, including AI Portrait Retouching, Portrait Mode, Ultra Night Mode, and Selfie HDR, make it easier to capture stunning portraits in any scenario.

Long-Term Reliability

When it comes to storage, the A79 5G features a 4GB RAM + 128GB ROM configuration. OPPO’s RAM Expansion technology has also been introduced to help temporarily convert free ROM space into a maximum of 4GB of RAM, to enable the phone to run more smoothly at all times.
