Last June, the OPPO A72, a perfect mid-range mobile phone that offers an interesting price and performance ratio. Well, now this model has a new variant, a model 5G, which not only adds this connectivity, but also offers a different design than the original model.
This new model has been released somewhat discreetly by the Chinese firm. A phone that would not surprise us if it came to Spain in the near future as its predecessor did just a few weeks ago.
New MediaTek processor and updated design
This new phone, although it should only offer us a new 5G connectivity, does not settle for that and also offers us a new design in which the camera becomes square instead of rectangular. But there are more improvements, like its screen, which has the same size of 6.5 inches with Full HD + resolution and hole but you now have a 90Hz refresh rate. It has a 20: 9 aspect ratio, making it quite slim and panoramic.
The big change comes with its processor, which is now a MediaTek, a Dimensional 720 5G, which is precisely what gives it this connectivity. It is accompanied by 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM, as well as 128GB of internal storage. Regarding photo cameras offers us three behind, with a 16-megapixel, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle primary sensor and a 2-megapixel black-and-white sensor. In front of the camera to take selfies is 8 megapixels, so in this section it is more than well prepared.
The battery it has is 4040mAh, and is compatible with 18W fast charge, which allows it to load fairly quickly. It has USB type C connectivity, as well as a fingerprint reader located on the side, on the power button. It arrives with Android 10 based on ColorOS 7.2. It has a thickness of 7.9mm and a weight of 175 grams. A mobile phone, therefore, that on the way has left a camera, leaving four behind, while the battery has also suffered a significant cut in capacity.
Price and availability of the new Oppo A72 5G
This mobile has now arrived in China in three colors, Simple Black, Neo and Oxygen Violet. It is for sale at the moment in China, where arrives for a price 230 euros to change, which is really good. A mobile that, as we say, would not surprise us if it arrives in Spain together with the current OPPO A72, where it now has a price of around 250 euros.
