OPPO A9 2020 and A5 2020 To Debut in the Philippines on September 19

OPPO's newest mid-ranger entries were previously launched in the Indian market.

More than a week after the OPPO A9 2020 and the OPPO A5 2020OPPO A5 2020 were launched in India, OPPO is now tipped to be readying the duo for a Philippine debut. The new development just briefly follows the smartphones' surfacing through the grapevine, courtesy of its renders and leaked specifications.

Both the OPPO A9 2020 and the A5 2020 share many similarities relative to their key features which include their camera and battery offerings, besides their identical chipset.

OPPO A9 2020 Specifications

Right off the bat, you'd know that the OPPO A9 2020 is geared for the photography enthusiasts. The phone features a quadruple-camera setup on its rear, one that is front-lined by a large 48MP wide main camera module. The main sensor is then accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide sensor, a 2MP monochrome sensor, and another 2MP lens used for depth sensing. Meanwhile, an equally massive 16MP sensor is housed inside the device's notch.

The OPPO A9 2020 also banks on its display offerings, spearheaded by a 6.5-inch IPS LCD. However, OPPO opted to equip the handset with a resolution of 720 x 1,600 pixels. Powering the device is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 665 processor, coupled with up to 8GB of RAM tier and an expandable 128GB of internal storage.

There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint reader on the back panel of the OPPO A9 2020. Other key features of the device include Bluetooth 5.0, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a dedicated FM radio.

OPPO went big with its battery offering on the OPPO A9 2020 as it equipped the device with a juicy 5,000mAh battery capacity. The phone runs on ColorOS 6.1 based on Android 9.0 Pie.

There's no official pricing for the OPPO A9 2020 yet although it is expected to mirror its Indian counterpart's RS 16,990 (around PHP 12,400) for its 4GB RAM variant.

OPPO A5 2020 Specifications

Essentially all the specifications of the OPPO A5 2020 are very much similar to that of its sibling variant, with a few noted exceptions. At the top of the list is its inclusion of a downgraded main camera shooter, which settles for a 12MP sensor. The device also sports a downgraded 8MP front-facing selfie camera.

The same can be said with the OPPO A5 2020's RAM and ROM configurations. Where the OPPO A9 2020 offers an up to 8GB of RAM tier, the A5 only comes with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage; the latter is also expandable up to 256GB via its microSD card slot.

Currently, the OPPO A5 2020 retails in the Indian market for RS 12,490 (around PHP 9,100) for its 3GB RAM base variant.
