OPPO is gearing up for the launch of a new A-series phone. The company has launched some A-series smartphones in India and China this year. Most of the offerings in the A-series have been in the budget and mid-range segment. The upcoming smartphone from OPPO’s A-series could be an upper mid-ranger. OPPO is rumoured to launch the A98 with some premium hardware.
The latest piece of information comes from tipster Digital Chat Station. The tipster has revealed some details about the OPPO A98’s display, camera and battery. Based on the leaked details, it is likely that the A98 will have the highest megapixel count and fastest charging tech in OPPO’s A-series phones. OPPO is likely to launch the phone first in China, followed by other markets. Let’s take a look at the OPPO A98 specifications, features and other details leaked so far.
OPPO A98 Specifications
The OPPO A98 launch date is unknown at the moment. While we wait for that, a new leak claims that the phone will feature a Snapdragon SoC. Tipster Digital Chat Station (DCS) took to Weibo (via) to reveal the camera specifications along with some other details of the phone. The tipster claimed that the OPPO smartphone will feature a 108MP main camera. DCS did not reveal any details about the other camera sensors.
On the front, there will be a Full HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It will have a hole-punch cutout. The leaked details also revealed that the OPPO A98’s display will have curved edges. If true, it will be the first OPPO A-series phone to sport a curved display.
DCS did not reveal the display size but claimed that the A98 will have a high screen-to-body ratio and a fairly thin chin bezel. The tipster shed some light on other parameters of the phone as well. There will be a Qualcomm SM7325 SoC, which is likely a Snapdragon 778G SoC. This also means that the phone will come with 5G network support.
The tipster also leaked the battery specs of the phone. The A98 5G will pack a 5000mAh battery under the hood and support 67W fast charging as well. This will be quite a bump over most A-series OPPO phones, which often come with 18W and 33W charging support.
The tipster did not reveal the RAM and storage options of the A98 5G. However, we can expect the phone to offer at least 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. OPPO might launch the phone with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage in China. However, more details about the same will be unveiled only at the launch event. The launch date remains under wraps but we will share more details as and when available. Meanwhile, let us know your thoughts about the A98 in the comments below.
