OPPO has a brand new midrange phone, the A96, and it has been launched in the Philippines.

There are a couple of features to look out for on the OPPO A96. For starters, it comes with a large 5,000mAh, paired with a 33W SuperVOOC charging that can provide a 50% charge in only 26 minutes.


It also boasts a 90Hz adaptive refresh rate that can dial down to 60Hz for better battery efficiency. It then has a maximum touch sampling rate of 180Hz for improved sensitivity, which could be handy when playing fast-paced games.

The panel itself is an LCD LTPS that can do 600-nits of peak brightness with an apt FHD+ pixel resolution. For the best entertainment experience, the A96 is rigged with stereo speakers.


A punch-hole on the top left of the screen houses the 16-megapixel main camera. While on the back, we only have two shooters that consist of a sharp 50-megapixel main lens, joined by a 2-megapixel depth sensor. No ultra-wide or macro, though.

Back here, we also have the company’s signature OPPO Glow Design with shiny, glitter-like accents. It comes in two colors: Pearl Pink and Starry Black.


Under the hood, the A96 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor. Unlike other smartphones in its price range, this means that it doesn’t come with the modern 5G connectivity as the chip is capped at 4G LTE.

To make up for it, OPPO rigged it with 256GB internal storage, mated to an 8GB of RAM with an additional 5GB through virtual RAM expansion for extra performance boost when you need it.


The OPPO A96 retails for Php15,999. It will be available on OPPO stores, dealers, and online platforms like Shopee and Lazada starting May 5.
