Oppo has unveiled its latest smartphone, the A92, in Kenya today.
The device was announced at the start of the month and is going for Kshs 30,000 locally.
At that price, it provides prospective buyers with another option to join Oppo’s lineup of feature-rich mid-range smartphones, currently headlined by the Oppo Reno3 that went on sale in the country last month.
The Oppo A92 packs a 6.5-inch Full HD+ “Neo” display, 8 GB RAM, 128GB onboard storage, a Snapdragon 665 chipset and a 5,000mAh battery. The mammoth battery can be juiced up real quick using the included 18W Fast Charge accessories.
Like most Oppo smartphones, there is a focus on the camera with a quad-camera arrangement at the back headlined by a 48-megapixel sensor standing out.
The Oppo A92 also comes running Android 10 with the latest version of Oppo’s custom overlay, ColorOS, layered on top.
The device’s fingerprint is also mounted on the side, a first for the Oppo’s A-series, incorporated in the power button.
The statement announcing the device’s launch from Oppo includes a few tidbits we didn’t know about: “…the AI Backlight Adjustment will intelligently learn the reading habit of user, to come up with a personalized automatic backlight adjustment.”
Accompanying the Oppo A92 to the local market is Oppo’s first attempt at a wireless headset: the Oppo Enco W31.
For the Kshs 8,000 that they are going for, Oppo is promising users low-latency, better noise cancellation when making calls, a bass mode and auto-detection for when the earbuds are worn (so as to resume playback) or not (to pause playback). Those who use them with compatible Oppo smartphones will be able to connect them with their devices using an AirPod-like quick-connect pairing function.
The Oppo A92, which comes in Aurora Purple, Twilight Black and Shining White colours, is available on pre-order online through Jumia Kenya from today all the way to Monday, June 1st.
Those who pre-order the device will get a gift of either a travel backpack or laptop bag from Oppo Kenya.
