Oppo has rolled out the A55 5G smartphone in China and this will be another offering in the affordable line. The new A55 5G will use a MediaTek Dimensity processor that is commonplace in the budget 5G phone market.
Oppo’s A-series has been getting 5G variants that counter Xiaomi’s Redmi in the home market. Oppo has given three cameras on the A55 5G, as well as a 3D curve design on the back. This phone has a glossy finish on the back but the thick bezels do make the phone look a bit dated.
The launch of the Oppo A55 5G has come close on the back of the A93 5G that Oppo released in China recently. However, unlike the A55 5G, the Oppo A93 5G uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 processor that is the first one to have the 5G connectivity in the Snapdragon 400 series.
Now, the AnTuTu 8 benchmark shows the Dimensity 700 has scored better than the Snapdragon 480 processor. This processor will extend support to the 4K resolution in videos in comparison with Qualcomm’s processor.
