The Oppo A78 5G is your run-of-the-mill, mid-tier smartphone which has mid-tier specification – and we have to say that, given many brands are now labelling mid-tier smartphones as “budget flagships”. That said, the Oppo A78 5G sure isn’t going to blow minds but the specification is decent enough for users to have a great everyday experience.

Some of the key highlights include – the Oppo A78 5G comes with 33W SUPERVOOC Charging, a 5000mAh Battery, Dual Stereo Speakers, the ability to expand the RAM with the help of the storage and a 50MP Camera. Otherwise, the phone comes with a “Reno-like” design on the back and comes in two different colours: Glowing Purple and Black. Interestingly enough, the phone is certified for IPX4 – and while that only covers water spills, it is still protection worth having. Instead of a Qualcomm processor, Oppo has opted in for MediaTek Dimensity 700 which is a smarter choice, given that they are making good strides in the market.

Other than that, you get an 8GB+128GB configuration, an HD+ Display at 720p with 90Hz refresh rate but fret not, it does have a Micro SD Card slot, so that’s good.

Pricing and Availability

The Oppo A78 5G goes on sale for RM 1,099 and you can get them through any of Oppo Malaysia Official Stores and Authorized Stores.
