With the intention of carrying on what has already been done well with the previous model, Oppo has formalized the new mid-range A97 5G, benefiting from a stereo speaker system complete with Dirac optimizations.
Although the Oppo A96 is also present in the 5G version (thanks to the Snapdragon 695 processor), in many markets it is only available in the 4G variant. Perhaps also for this reason BBK has announced its successor, with only the new mobile connectivity, represented by the Oppo A97 5G, in pre-order from today but on sale from next July 15th at a price of 2,099 yuan (about 311 euros).
The Oppo A97 5G can be chosen in the Quiet Night Black and Deep Sea Blue colors: again in terms of look, the edges of the chassis (163.8 × 75.1 × 7.99 mm for 188 grams) are flat, the front has a drop notch and a hinted chin while, on the back, the speech becomes more elaborate since, inside a large bi-tone section (darker, lighter), a rectangular bumper houses two rings, for the dual camera with LED flash.
Moving on to the substance, the Oppo A97 5G integrates a 6.56-inch FullHD + (2408 × 1080 pixels) LCD display, with 90 Hz refresh rate: the selfiecamera is 8 megapixel while, the dual rear camera includes a main sensor from 48 ( f / 1.8) and a secondary 2 megapixel camera. Audio side, there is the 3.5 mm mini-jack and two stereo speakers optimized by the French Dirac. Security has not been neglected, due to the very comfortable and effective fingerprint scanner placed on the side.
For the processor, the mid-range smartphone Oppo A97 5G opted for the octacore (2.4 GHz) Mediatek Dimensity 810, made at 6 nanometers and supported by a Mali-G52 MC2 GPU: the RAM, from 12 GB, can be virtually expanded up to 7 GB extra (total 19 GB), while the storage is provided for only 256 GB. In terms of energy, the manufacturer has prepared a 33W fast-charging 5,000 mAh battery via microUSB Type-C.
In terms of connectivity, the Oppo A97 5G is equipped with Dual SIM, with 5G, GPS, Wi-Fi ac dual band, Bluetooth 5.0 (although an Indian source mentions BT 5.1): under the ColorOS 12 interface , finally operates Android 12.
