The OPPO A78 5G has officially surfaced in Malaysia. It packs a Dimensity 700 chip, a 50MP main camera, and a 5,000mAh battery with 33W SuperVOOC charging all under USD 250. It is the most recent addition to the brand’s budget-friendly A series alongside the OPPO A77s.
It is somewhat of a downgrade when compared to the OPPO A77, which had a Dimensity 810 chip. It does lose out on some performance but gains 5G support instead. OPPO, however, is giving the smartphone to its users with Android 13 already installed with ColorOS 13.
