In China, announced OPPO A55 inexpensive smartphone with support for 5G networks. Interesting, perhaps, only because this is the first smartphone on the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset (with a built-in 5G modem).
OPPO A55 5G
Dimensity 700 Performance Informationnot yet. But you can estimate. Dimensity 700 is a slightly overclocked version of Dimensity 720, which gives a little less than three hundred thousand parrots in AnTuTu. So Dimensity 700 will also be in the region of these three hundred thousand. Well, maybe half a little more.
The OPPO A55 is not offended by the memory. 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of constant. There is support for memory cards.
The screen is the weak link.720 × 1600 resolution for 6.5 ″ diagonal is frankly not enough, it is only 270 ppi. And in general, the screen is all kind of old-fashioned. Low refresh rate. And a keyhole. I got the impression that OPPO droplets have already been safely abandoned entirely and completely. But no.
The battery is good, the battery is capacious. Standard 5000 mAh. There is no fast charging, only 10 watts.
The set of cameras is very simple. Front camera 8 MP. Behind the trio 13 + 2 + 2 MP - the main module, wide-angle, depth sensor.
Apparently, there is no NFC support. The gyroscope is “virtual”, i.e. is absent. LTE frequencies are not ours, there are neither 7 nor 20 bands.
The price at the start of sales is not very high, only¥ 1599 (₽18400, $ 247). Although ... In the same China, you can buy a similar OPPO K7x smartphone on MediaTek Dimensity 720 for ¥ 1,499 (₽17,200, $ 231). The chip is a bit slower, yes. But otherwise everything is cooler - FullHD screen, fast charging, cameras ... What's the catch?
