Oppo A72 5 G goes officially with 720 SoC Dimension and 90Hz 6.5" display
Oppo today introduced the 5 G platform, called Oppo A72 5 G since unveiling the A72 back in April. However this isn't only an A72 embracing next-gen networks. We are looking at a lot of variations between variants 4G and 5G.
For example, the A72 5 G is powered by the recently released Dimension 720 SoC while the 4 G variant has under the hood a Snapdragon 665 chipset. All smartphones feature 6.5 "FullHD+ LCDs however the A72 5 G comes with a 90Hz display in comparison to the 60Hz resolution of the non-5 G model.
The camera team receives a reduction while network access and computer get updated. The A72 features a total of five cameras-a front-facing 16MP selfie camera and a back-facing quad camera with 48MP primary, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensors.
Yet on the other side, the A72 5 G has a front 8MP shooter with the rear housing a camera setup and is a mix of 16MP main, 8MP ultrawide and 2MP depth lenses.
Unlike the A72 which comes with a 5,000 mAh battery, the A72 5 G ships with a 4,040 mAh cell which pulls power up to 18W via a USB-C connection. Bringing a bigger battery may have been smarter because the device embraces 5 G networks and sports a 90Hz panel-all of which will tax the battery.
Other Oppo A72 5 G highlights include Android 10-based ColorOS 7.2, Dirac 2.0 sound improvements, side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a headphone jack of 3.5 mm. The A72 5 G is accessible in three colors, with a single 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage package starting at CNY1,899 ($270/€230).
It is now available for pre-order in China via the official website of the company, with sales starting July 31.
