OPPO just announced a 5G version of the OPPO A77 from four years ago.
Besides the modern connectivity feature, the OPPO A77 5G is a far departure from the 4G-only model from 2017. For one, it has a more modern design, as well as a faster screen, and a sharper camera.
That said, the new A77 5G is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 810 octa-core processor, assisted by a generous 6GB of RAM, which you can boost with an extra 5GB of memory by borrowing space from the 128GB of internal storage.
It also comes with a 33W fast charging support, which can charge the 5,000mAh battery to 53% in just half an hour and a full 100% in about 69 minutes.
For the software, the A77 5G ships with the latest Android 12-based ColorOS 12.1 operating system.
On the front, we have a 6.56-inch HD+ screen. Not the sharpest, but at least it has a fast 90Hz refresh rate. It also gets to have a stereo speaker setup.
There’s a notch on top of it for the 8-megapixel selfie snapper, while on the back we have two large lenses — just like OPPO’s other modern releases — that hold a 48-megapixel main camera and 2-megapixel depth sensor.
The device also managed to have NFC for wireless payments and easy accessory pairing. It also has an IPX4 rating for being water-resistant.
Those in Thailand can already get the OPPO A77 5G for a price of THB9,999 (around Php15,400) come June 10. Availability in the Philippines is yet to be announced.
