OPPO has subtly unveiled a new midrange smartphone, the A98 5G, by listing it on its official global website.

The new OPPO A98 5G is powered by the trusty Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 processor — the same chipset most of its competition already has. It has 256GB of fast UFS 2.2 storage, 8GB of RAM, and of course, up to 8GB of virtual RAM expansion.

It may have the same chip as everyone else, but the A98 5G attempts to stand out by having a few interesting features. For one, it has a flagship-level 67W SUPERVOOC charging, which can charge the 5,000mAh battery at 50% in just 18 minutes, with a full charge taking less than 45 minutes.


The device features OPPO’s Battery Health Engine that can double the life span of the battery by four years or up to 1600 charging cycles.

OPPO is also highlighting the device’s 48-month fluency protection, which essentially means that it should still feel relatively smooth even after four years of ownership.


The A98 5G also has an extra large and sharp 6.72-inch FHD+ IPS display with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate and 100% DCI-P3 color coverage.

OPPO also threw in a stereo speaker setup for immersive audio when watching movies or playing shooter games. Plus, there’s the Ultra Volume Mode 2.0 that cranks up the volume by 200%.


Sadly, the A98 5G lacks an ultra-wide or telephoto lens. Instead, we’re getting a sharp 64-megapixel main camera and a 32-megapixel selfie shooter. There’s also the usual 2-megapixel mono shooter and a 40x microlens that you can use as a microscope similar to what other OPPO A devices have.

The official price of the OPPO A98 5G is yet to be announced. OPPO Philippines has already posted a teaser of the device on social media with the caption “Coming soon” and a link to its webpage. So, stay tuned for more updates.
