Hot on the heels of the Reno10 5G launch last week, Oppo today has released the latest addition to its A series, the Oppo A98 5G.

With an RRP of just $649, the A98 5G offers an impressive range of specs for a mid-ranged phone.

At the top of the list is the 5,000 mAh battery, which supports OPPO’s 67W SUPERVOOC charging technology. Using the 67W SUPERVOOC, the A98 can be charged from 0% to 100% in just 44 minutes.

A quick five minute charge, meanwhile, offers enough battery for about 2.5 hours of YouTube streaming.

The phone boasts a 6.72-inch display with a 120 Hz refresh rate, offering smooth performance no matter the application being used.

Under the hood is a Snapdragon 695 5G processor, 8GB RAM and 256GB ROM. The phone’s microSD slot supports cards up to 1TB as well.

Camera quality

The OPPO A98 5G’s camera array boasts a 64 MP AI Camera, a 32 MP Selfie Camera, a 2 MP Depth Camera and a 2 MP Microlens.

The microlens is an interesting addition, offering up to 40 times magnification, to take detailed photos at a microscopic level.

The main AI camera, meanwhile, is designed to help you take perfectly balanced photos in a range of lighting conditions using intelligent software.

Pricing and availability

Weighing around 192 g and measuring about 8.2 mm in thickness, the OPPO A98 5G is available in two colours: Dreamy Blue and Cool Black.

It is available from today for an RRP of $649 at Office Works, JB Hi-Fi and OPPO Australia’s Online Store.

We’ll be looking to get our hands on the phone shortly to see if it makes the cut for our list of the best Oppo phones or the best cheap phones in Australia.
