OPPO Levels Up A Series with A96 Launch

OPPO Australia today announced the launch of its latest A Series smartphone joining the brand’s entry level lineup, the OPPO A96. Retailing at just $399, the OPPO A96 is equipped with the 5000mAh battery capacity and 33W SUPERVOOCTM flash charging, complemented by a 50MP rear camera setup.

Stylish and Functional

OPPO A96 features a 6.59-inch 90Hz Colour-Rich Punch-Hole Display with 90.8% screen-to-body ratio and 1080×2412 FHD resolution. The bump up in refresh rate is managed by OPPO’s Adaptive Refresh Rate Technology, OPPO’s self-developed technology for LCD screens, which auto-regulates the screen refresh rate based on what the user is doing, ensuring better smoothness while keeping power usage down. All-day AI Eye Comfort enhances the screen visibility in bright or dim environments based on the levels of ambient light. The display has also been upgraded to cover a 96% NTSC wide color gamut. Equivalent to 100% DCI-P3, the display now covers more of the color spectrum, making image colors even truer, richer, and more captivating.

5000mAh Battery Capacity and 33W SUPERVOOCTM for Effortless Experience

The 5000mAh battery capacity gives users the necessary battery power to stay connected, while 33W SUPERVOOCTM fast charging provides more flexibility with a 30-minute charge providing 55% of battery power. In addition, OPPO has made great strides in improving the battery usage efficiency with features such as Super Power Saving Mode based on the power-saving strategies, such as CPU frequency adjustment and backlight regulation to extend battery life.

Reliable Performance for an Enduring Experience

Powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 680 4G Mobile Platform, OPPO A96 delivers an exceptionally smooth user experience with the 8GB + 128GB  large memory and storage. This is complemented by RAM Expansion, which gives the OPPO A96 an extra boost to performance and storage, meaning better multi-tasking and smoother experience, and extra storage via SD card expansion.

Powerful Camera System for Versatile Portrait Experience

OPPO A96 carries a 16MP Front Camera, producing gorgeous portrait shots. Features such as AI Natural Retouching includes blemish removal while still preserving the user’s natural facial features. Portrait shots are now brighter and clearer in dim environments with the help of the 360° Fill Light feature.

The rear-facing dual camera setup features a 50MP Rear Camera with high photosensitivity and high pixel count, and a 2MP Bokeh Camera, allowing users to use Portrait Mode to capture photos with the precise and natural bokeh effects. The rear camera also supports 5x digital zoom and up to 20 continuous burst shots.

Additional camera features such as AI Palette, Neon Portrait, Flash Snapshot, and Selfie HDR are incorporated to deliver even greater versatility to users as they shoot in different scenarios.
