OPPO’s Budget Beating A58 Smartphone Fuses Stunning Display with Power Packed Performance
With Australians feeling the pinch from the rising cost of living, OPPO Australia has today announced the launch of its budget busting OPPO A58 smartphone – proving Aussies can really have more for less.
The newest addition to its A series family of smartphones, the OPPO A58 offers consumers features usually only found on mid-range or flagship devices. From its 6.72-inch FHD+ Sunlight Display and upgraded Dual Stereo Speakers, to its long-lasting 5000mAh Large Battery and powerful 33W SUPERVOOCTM fast charging technology, the OPPO A58 offers a premium experience without a premium price tag.
“The OPPO A58 is a stylish addition to our iconic range of A Series devices, delivering a remarkable device that sets a new standard within the market,” said OPPO Australia’s Managing Director, Michael Tran. “With its combination of excellent battery life, stunning display and ultra smooth performance, the A58 is designed to match users’ dynamic lifestyles, without burning a hole in their pocket.
“From our flagship Find Series to the mid-range Reno and the budget savvy A-Series, we want to ensure that every Australian has access to cutting edge technology regardless of budget. Pound for pound, we believe the A58 delivers more bang for buck than any other device on the market, and are confident Aussie consumers will agree,” added Tran.
Stunning Premium Design
The OPPO A58 is available in two colour finishes: Glowing Black and Dazzling Green. The Glowing Black finish features the iconic OPPO glow that creates a beautiful shimmering crystal effect and offers a comfortable feel. The Dazzling Green finish adopts a special Glowing Silk Design, giving the backplate a silk-like texture and a refreshing look. With its 2.8D streamlined curved back cover, decorated with a polished oval panel around its camera module, the OPPO A58 weighs approximately 192g and measures only 7.99 mm in thickness, ensuring a comfortable grip and slim and stylish look.
Brilliant Sunlight Display
The new OPPO A58 features a 6.72-inch FHD+ Sunlight Display, offering an immersive viewing experience. The Sunlight Display provides a 680 nits peak brightness, so users can easily view photos or read text under bright sunlight. With a 2400×1080 high resolution and support for 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut, the Sunlight Display renders remarkably vibrant content and razor-sharp text. Additionally, with the All-Day AI Eye Comfort features, the display is eye-friendly and comfortable for extended use, day or night.
Impressive Dual Stereo Speakers with Ultra Volume Mode
The OPPO A58 is equipped with upgraded Dual Stereo Speakers to deliver an impressive high-quality sound experience. 40% louder than the previous generation, the speakers deliver immersive stereo surround sound effects, ensuring fuller and richer sound quality for calls, games, or video. In addition, the OPPO A58 also introduces an upgraded Ultra Volume Mode which maximises the loudness of the speakers up to 300%, enabling users to easily enjoy music and hear phone calls even in noisy environments. The mode also offers options to increase the maximum volume of earpieces by up to 200% during phone calls or voice calls on WhatsApp and Messenger.
Unleashing Creativity with an Upgraded Camera System
OPPO A58 is equipped with a 50MP AI Camera, allowing users to capture crystal-clear, high-resolution images. With pixel binning support, four pixels are combined together to form one larger pixel, preserving more details, especially in low light. The 50MP AI Camera and 2MP Portrait Camera work together to offer impressive background blur and highlight the subject in Portrait Mode. With an 8MP front-facing camera, the OPPO A58 delivers stunning selfies and enhanced video call quality.
With impressive features like Stylised Nighttime Photography, AI Portrait Retouching, and Panorama Mode, the OPPO A58 inspires users to create diverse photography work and unleash their imagination.
Long-lasting Battery Life and Industry-leading SUPERVOOCTM Flash Charge
On top of its impressive entertainment features and camera system, the OPPO A58 comes with a larger battery and faster charging speed to deliver reliable battery performance.
Owing to the large 5000mAh battery, OPPO A58 users can enjoy 32 hours of phone calls, 16 hours of YouTube viewing, or 5 hours of gaming on a single full charge. The smartphone also features a 33W SUPERVOOCTM flash charge, which swiftly charges the 5000mAh battery to 100% in just 75 minutes, while even a quick 5-minute charge ensures 3.39 hours of phone calls, alleviating charging concerns and keeping users on the move without interruption.
What’s more, the All-day AI Power Saving features come into play if users forget to charge their phones. Supporting 91 minutes of phone calls with only 5% of battery, OPPO A58 maximises the last bit of battery for emergency needs.
Smooth Performance Powered by Enhanced Hardware and Software
Powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 platform, the OPPO A58 makes a leap in performance compared to its predecessor. With 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM configuration, the smartphone offers plenty of memory and storage space. OPPO’s RAM Expansion technology can further double the available RAM with up to 6GB extended RAM, providing an extra layer of smoothness for daily use. On the software side, the Dynamic Computing Engine of ColorOS 13.1 can precisely schedule computing resources, ensuring a more responsive and smoother experience when switching between apps, ideal for gaming or multitasking.
