OPPO has introduced the A36, a midrange phone like a lot we’ve already seen recently.

The OPPO A36 is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor, paired with a 5,000mAh battery. That’s similar to what we saw on the Vivo Y33T and the Realme 9i.


But unlike its competition, the A36 settles for a 13-megapixel main camera instead of 50-megapixels. It’s joined by a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a camera island design similar to the Reno 7 series. On the upside, it does come with a generous amount of storage, 256GB, and 8GB of memory.

On the front, there’s an 8-megapixel selfie camera peeking through the punch-hole on the top left. Speaking of which, this one has an HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate for speed and 180Hz touch sampling for smoothness.


The OPPO A36 has a price of CNY1,599 (around Php12,800). It will be available in China this January 14. No word yet if it’s coming here in the Philippines.
