August 7, 2019, Lagos-The global smartphone brand OPPO Mobile Telecommunications Corp., Ltd. has unveiled its latest mid-range smartphone, OPPO A5s. Boasting a stylish design and long-lasting battery life, the OPPO A5s features the year’s most popular waterdrop screen, as well as dual rear cameras and a fingerprint scanner. With a robust 4230mAh battery, OPPO A5s leverages AI algorithm optimization to reduce power consumption, delivering exceptional long-lasting battery life.
Stylish exterior, waterdrop screen and mirror-finish back cover
With a sublime 6.2-inch LCD waterdrop screen with a 19:9 aspect ratio and a 1520×720-pixel resolution, OPPO A5s’ screen design draws its inspiration from a water droplet on the verge of falling. Thanks to relentless innovation in both technology and manufacturing, an earpiece, camera, and light sensor have all been integrated into the waterdrop at the top of the screen. This makes possible the 89.35% screen-to-body ratio and creates a waterdrop screen that is both beautiful and practical. From gaming to watching videos to just plain web browsing, users can enjoy an unparalleled, immersive experience.
OPPO A5s applies a similarly meticulous design to its back cover and frames. The texture of the mirror-finish back cover is more premium than the standard metal version, while its smooth surface picks up streams of light to create a stunning visual experience.
To ensure that the smooth mirror surface rests comfortably in the palm of a hand, OPPO A5s leverages 3D thermal-bending technology. This not only enables the four curved edges to sit more snugly in one’s hand than a 2.5D back cover, but also allows the device to maintain its status as the industry’s thinnest – a delightfully light experience at just 0.64mm thick.
For greater visual impact, OPPO A5s also utilizes a frosted texture design for its middle frame, creating a sharp contrast with its rear mirror finish. The OPPO A5s series comes in four options: black, red, green, and gold. The green and gold options possess a grating pattern, which infuses the back cover with a sense of depth as well as 3D effects. Reactive and rich with variation, the final effect is nothing short of outstanding.
Play more, play longer with a 4230mAh battery and up to 3GB RAM
Powered by a 4230mAh large-capacity battery, OPPO A5s supports up to 13.5 hours of video playback, thanks to AI algorithm optimization and a low power-consumption MTK6765 processor. Its 2.3GHz CPU and 3GB RAM enables several applications to run seamlessly at the same time, effectively eliminating freezing and serving multiple user scenarios. OPPO A5s also comes with a rear fingerprint scanner, allowing users to unlock their devices quickly and securely in a mere 0.08 seconds.
13MP dual rear cameras and 8MP front beauty camera for an even better selfie
As the beloved camera phone brand of young people, OPPO devices are known for their exceptional photo performance. This is no different for OPPO A5s, which comes with an 8MP front camera and F2.0 aperture. Thanks to AI and big data technologies, the front camera offers more natural and personalized beautification options, delivering the stunning selfies in a flash. OPPO A5s is also equipped with 13MP+2MP dual rear cameras, which enable excellent background blur, to help users stand out in their portraits. Paired with AI beautification technology, portraits are now more eye-catching than ever. The primary camera uses a 5P lens to precisely control the light path, which creates a sharper image.
Meanwhile, the multi-frame anti-shake technology ensures a smoother, more stable video shooting experience. OPPO A5s with 3G RAM also supports AR stickers. They include AR stickers that respond to facial movements, as well as foreground and music stickers, opening up a more dynamic and engaging photo experience.
Making life smarter and more efficient with ColorOS 5.2.1
OPPO A5s runs on the streamlined and striking ColorOS 5.2.1. With new features such as Smart Bar, Smart Scan, Music on Display, Video Editing, and more, OPPO A5s is a joy in everyday use. In particular, Smart Scan and Smart Bar are two standout functions. Smart Scan scans business cards to easily transform paper business cards into electronic ones. It also supports scan and image translation, providing invaluable assistance when travelling abroad.
Moreover, Smart Scan can convert images into editable text, allowing users to seamlessly work between formats. Meanwhile, Smart Bar is a productivity tool that allows users to quickly switch between applications, conveniently reply to text messages, and transfer files while playing games or watching videos. It also supports multiple shortcut tools, such as cutting and screen recording, making life and work more efficient.
