Oppo is bringing 5G to more of its smartphones, and bringing prices down to match. The new A-series phones with 5G start at just £219.

The three models are the A54, A74 and A94 5G. The first two are powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 5G chip, while the A94 gets MediaTek’s Dimensity 800U 5G chip.

All three phones come with a 48-megapixel primary camera and 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera, alongside a 2-megapixel mono and macro camera.

The A94 5G comes with an AMOLED display, while the A54 and A74 use an LCD display but with a higher 90Hz refresh rate.

The A54 5G and A74 5G each come with a larger capacity (5,000mAh) battery, whereas the A94 5G gets faster 30W fast charging for its smaller 4,310mAh cell.

Better Together: OPPO Expands its A-Series to Include Budget-Friendly, 5G-Ready Handsets

London, UK: 22nd April 2021 – OPPO, the leading global smart device brand, has today unveiled its ultimate smartphone companions for UK customers ahead of the British summer: the OPPO A54 5G, A94 5G and A74 5G.  

Flagship performance at a budget-friendly price 

The hero addition to the ever-popular OPPO A Series, the OPPO A54 5G, is designed to balance work and play for UK customers looking to redefine their home, office and gym space as the country emerges from lockdown. With 5G connectivity, all-around Smart Power Saving hardware and software features, and a day and a half of battery life,  there are fewer reasons for a pit stop at home and even more to stay connected on-the-move this summer.

After months indoors, the OPPO A54 5G offers best-in-class photography technology so users can capture their most treasured moments in eye-catching detail. It  also comes with Ultra Night Mode to enhance shots taken in low-light conditions, in addition to 15 Stylising Filters for improving the colour and style of your shots quickly and effectively.

All three new products in the A Series include a 48MP main camera that captures clear and high-quality photos and are supported by a separate 8MP wide-angle camera, 2MP monochrome camera and 2MP macro camera to snap life in full view.

Feature packed, in a stylish package

Integrated into the A54 5G as standard are a series of power saving and brightness level algorithms to protect your eyes, while saving you power. Come rain or shine, there’s something to minimise the strain on your eyes and adjust contrast ratio in overexposed areas of the screen to improve overall visibility.

If it’s a stylish smartphone you’re after, fear not – OPPO has you covered there too. The sleek design of the OPPO A54 5G is as elegant as it is ergonomic, and its thin frame means that it can be carried around on the go without the need for bulky pockets. What’s more, the OPPO A54 5G comes in two colours, Fluid Black and Fantastic Purple – both of which share a metallic and glossy, yet matte texture, to achieve colour gradients that are glare-free, soft, and slowly transitions from one shade of colour to another.

Finally, thanks to 5G performance, movies and files download in just seconds, meaning that your phone won’t be slowing you down.
