Versatile Camera Technology
The OPPO A Series 2020 comes with a multipurpose Quad Camera setup to provide the consumers with infinite creative possibilities. The OPPO A9 2020 is equipped with 48MP Main Camera + 8MP Ultra-Wide Lens + 2MP Mono Lens + 2MP Portrait Lens. And, the OPPO A5 2020 features 12MP Main Camera + 8MP Ultra-Wide Lens + 2MP Mono Lens + 2MP Portrait Lens. Both the handsets are developed to satisfy users’ needs for all shooting angles and scenarios, including the Ultra Night Mode 2.0 and a whole host of artistic portrait styles.
The 48MP primary lens in the A9 2020 improves image clarity with higher resolution, which helps to capture more detail and take clearer pictures. The 8MP 119° ultra-wide-angle lens brings more diversity in terms of picture composition and expression, making it easier to capture a larger shot in a smaller space. The Mono lens and Portrait Lens allow users to add retro, grainy and atmospheric filters to portrait shots, creating more personalized images for users, offering new styles that are unique to what other smartphone brands are currently offering.
The Ultra Night Mode 2.0 ensures efficient noise reduction, while HDR and Multi-Frame Technology provides users with night photography that highlights more details than the human eye can perceive.
The A9 2020 is equipped with a 16MP selfie camera, while the A5 2020 is equipped with 8MP selfie camera using AI Beautification technology for selfies to cater to different markets and the latest trends. The camera technology automatically identifies skin tone, age, gender, and skin colour.
Both A9 2020 and A5 2020 feature OPPO’s latest stabilization technology, designed to meet the consumers’ growing demand for high-quality action videos, with 4K video shooting capabilities. This allows more stable shooting while running, walking, cycling and more, along with improved video filters that allow users to create their own movies with the press of a button, ideal for creating eye-catching content in the era of short video apps.
An artistic and user-friendly design
The OPPO A Series 2020 comes equipped with a brand new and more compact Nano Waterdrop screen, with a 31.4% decrease in the overall area compared to the previous generation, for a better look and user experience. A 6.5” full screen has an 89% screen-to-body ratio, which also uses toughened Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3+ that is two times harder than the third generation and offers better resistance to scratches.
However, the OPPO A9 2020 also features a 3D gradient design for a more vibrant, eye-catching look, with each handset made out of four curved 3D sheets, which makes it look thinner and fits comfortably into the hand.
Outstanding Hardware and Software for an Exceptional Experience and Performance
Supporting a 5000mAh battery capacity, the A-series 2020 handsets ensure an all-day use, capable of supporting up to 19 hours of continuous operation.
In terms of audio, the smartphone is equipped with dual stereo speakers that offer improved sound quality, even at high volumes. Dolby Atmos® sound effects allow the smartphone to provide an immersive surround sound effect for the most immersive, thrilling sounds, videos and gaming experiences anytime, anywhere.
Additionally, OPPO A series 2020 handsets pack an ultra-powerful performance, owing to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665. Compared to the previous A7 using Snapdragon 450, the A9 2020’s CPU is improved by 40%, while its GPU has improved by more than 100%. Especially for the gaming experience, Game Boost 2.0 accelerator technology offers improved Frame Boost and Touch Boost, to provide lightning-fast gameplay response, by reducing touch screen latency and lag, delivering the overall better user experience.
Frame Boost provides real-time monitoring of the phone’s operations to resolve latency and game lag, while also allocating resources to prevent the phone from overheating or using too much power. Touch Boost makes special adjustments to the responsiveness of the touchscreen while gaming and also ups the sensitivity of the touchscreen while running applications so that the phone feels faster and more responsive.
The handsets run on ColorOS 6.0.1, based on Android 9.0, providing a fresh visual experience that’s more sleek, refined and comfortable even after prolonged use. As well as offering fingerprint and facial unlock features, this operating system comes with a whole host of smart functions such as Smart Assistant, Riding Mode, Music Party and Gesture Navigation which improve user convenience, safety and the phone’s overall versatility.
