OPPO has today announced their latest entry to the Australian market with the A91 hitting stores and online retailers from today.

For $499 the phone includes a lot of hardware including a big 6.4-inch FHD+ resolution AMOLED display with a tiny teardrop notch housing a 16MP selfie camera. The quad-camera rear setup includes a 48MP main sensor with an 8MP sensor with macro lens & additional 2MP B/W & 2MP portrait sensors.

The rest of the specs on the phone are equally impressive for the price point with a Mediatek Helio P70 processor, and 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage which can be expanded with microSD cards. The phone includes NFC for tap & pay – very important right now – and a big 4,025mAh battery which should see you through a full day – but if not includes OPPO’s VOOC 3.0 Flashcharge supercharge which can get you from 0 to 10% charge in five minutes and to 35% in 20 minutes.
