According to reports, the Oppo A96’s impending premium replacement, the A98, will be available only in China. According to reports, a redesigned version is in the works that might debut as A98’s global counterpart. Evan Blass, the ever-reliable tipper, recently released its name and real-life photograph in a tweet.
According to re, the OPPO A1 Pro 5G will be the global equivalent of the A98. A98 revealed its face and back in a recent TENAA certification, and the design trail closely resembles the hands-on image tweeted by Blass.
The A1 Pro has an extruded pill-shaped camera with two circular discs containing separate sensors. A silver accent between the lenses gives it a premium appearance. The module is formed by a glittering pattern and a gradient shifting rear panel.
The image shows the A1 in glazed silver, but the latest 5G OPPO phone will come in a variety of colours. On the front, there is a top-centered pin-hole selfie camera with an AMOLED display that spills over the edges. As a global counterpart, it should have hardware that is mostly comparable to A98. Here’s a little taste of what it plans to offer.
The new A98 will be the A-series’ first curved-display device, with a 120Hz display and FHD+ resolution. Following in the footsteps of Redmi’s latest 12 series, the A98 will attempt to break the highest PWM dimming record on a smartphone. The newcomer’s display is said to use PWM at 2160Hz to decrease eye fatigue caused by low brightness.
For security, the newcomer’s 6.7-inch screen will include an under-display fingerprint scanner. To power the Snapdragon 778G SoC, the phone will use a 5000mAh battery rated for 67W fast charging. By default, the A98 will run an Android 13 operating system. The A1 Pro 5G is said to have a 108MP primary camera and a 16MP selfie camera. We’ll post an update as soon as we learn the rest of its specifications.
