Let’s face it, today is all about Samsung and they’ve certainly hit the ball out of the park too. OPPO though has decided to try and steal a least a small amount of Samsung’s limelight with the release of an entry-level smartphone — after all, not everyone can afford a Galaxy S24.

The new OPPO A79 5G is designed to deliver a high-quality multimedia experience in a good-looking package. Sporting a large 6.72-inch FHD+ Sunlight Display and a peak brightness of 680 nits it can be used to devour your favourite media at any time and any location.

Enhancing the multimedia experience are the dual stereo speakers with support for surround sound and offers optimised noise reduction and echo suppression for clearer calls.

Continuing to deliver on our mission to provide customers with innovative smartphones at accessible price points, the A79 5G offers excellent overall performance that ensures a smooth and reliable experience for users. Its fresh design gives the phone an elegant appearance that sets a new standard for the segment” said OPPO Australia’s Managing Director, Michael Tran. 

The rear camera setup includes a 50MP AI camera and a 2MP portrait camera while the selfie camera is 8MP. Using the AI algorithms the A79 5G is able to produce ultra clear high resolution images.

Packed with 128GB of storage and 4GB of RAM, the entry-level smartphone will run all day long thanks to a large 5,000mAh battery which supports 33W SUPERVOOC fast charging. OPPO suggest that you can get up to 14 hours of YouTube videos watched on a single charge and if you do run the battery empty, a simple 5-minute charge will provide up to 1.5 hours of further YouTube viewing.

The OPPO A79 5G is available in Glowing Green and Mystery Black with the Glowing Green featuring a special texture to give the phone a feather-like touch. The OPPO A79 5G is available from today for just $369 from stores such as JB Hi-Fi, Officeworks, The Good Guys and the OPPO Online Store.
