We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again – Oppo loves a thicc battery. And it looks like nothing has changed with its new budget offering, the Oppo A52.

Oppo A52 Specs

While most of the specs are what you’d expect for a $300 phone, there are a couple of standouts here. Firstly, there’s the Snapdragon 655 processor which are usually reserved for mid-tier phones. Then there’s the 5,000mAH battery life with 18W fastcharge which will juice from 0 to 50 per cent in 45 minutes. Again, you don’t usually see this kind of inclusion at this price point. Considering the other more modest specs, the battery should last you a good long while.

Here’s a full list of the key specs:

  • Display: 6.4-inch 1080p display
  • OS: Color OS 7.1
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 655
  • Storage: 64GB
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Rear Cameras: 12MP main, 8MP Ultra Wide, 2MP macro, 2MP depth Lenses
  • Front Camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAH
  • Connectivity: 4G
  • Biometrics: Fingerprint sensor
  • Weight: 192g
  • Colour Options: Twighlight Black and Stream White

Oppo A52 Price Australia

The Oppo A52 comes in at just $299, which is pretty darn good considering that processor and big boy battery. If you’re in the market for a budget phone, this could be the answer to your prayers.

Oppo A52 Availability Australia

The Oppo A52 is available for pre-order from today from JB Hi-Fi. The device will go on sale on May 11 and you can pick one up at Officeworks, Kogan, Bing Lee, The Good Guys, MobileCiti, and Woolworths Mobile.

Apple iPhone SE: Australian First Look Review

Last year, Google turned the mid-range phone market on its head by introducing the ludicrously-priced and well-specced Pixel 3a. A few other brands have followed suit since then, but none have been quite as exciting as the new iPhone SE. Now it truly seems like flagship inclusions at lower price points are here to stay - and it's about damn time. The trend of $1,500 - $2,000 becoming the norm for new phones over the last few years has been bad for buyers. A new middle ground has been long overdue and we welcome it. But is the resurrected iPhone SE actually a good phone to buy in 2020?
