With its combination of high quality and affordability, as well as outstanding photography, top-notch design and a long-lasting battery, the A series will continue to be the essential handset to generation Z youth.
“We named these two handsets the OPPO A Series 2020 in celebration of the beginning of the new decade and also to commemorate the success of A series over the past ten years while welcoming a whole new generation of mobile users” said Bob Li, CEO OPPO Sri Lanka. “This new name also reflects our vision for the coming ten years. It highlights the brand’s latest technologies, stunning design, superb photography, powerful performance and perfect tuning to the needs of young people.” Now, with these two latest handsets, the OPPO A Series 2020 offers more possibilities than ever before!
The OPPO A Series 2020 inspires users to “Play”, with its all-purpose 48MP quad camera that pushes the bounds of creativity, and a 5,000mAh Ultra Battery that provides even longer use. It provides outstanding entertainment to users. Its versatile camera technology broadens users’ creative horizons, and the whole handset offers an immersive entertainment experience and powerful performance.
Versatile Camera Tech Brings Users Even More Photography Options
The OPPO A9 2020 comes with a multipurpose Quad Camera setup, including a 48MP Main Camera + 8MP Ultra-Wide Lens + 2MP Mono Lens + 2MP Portrait Lens, while the OPPO A5 2020 also comes with a multipurpose Quad Camera setup but with a 12MP Main Camera. These offer all-around use that can satisfy users’ needs for all shooting angles and scenarios, including the Ultra Night Mode 2.0 and a whole host of artistic portrait styles.
The 48MP primary lens improves image clarity with higher resolution, helping capture more detail and take clearer pictures. The 8MP 119° ultra-wide-angle lens brings more diversity in terms of picture composition and expression, making it easier to capture a larger shot in a smaller space. The Mono lens and Portrait Lens allows users to add retro, grainy and atmospheric filters to portrait shots, creating more personalized images for users, offering new styles unique to what other smartphone brands are currently offering.
Ultra Night Mode 2.0 ensures efficient noise reduction, while HDR and Multi-Frame Technology provide users with night scene pictures that exceed the brightness and detail that the human eye can perceive. Because people are processed separately from their environment, faces appear bright and detailed, while background light flare is greatly diminished. In summary, images stay bright and clear whether capturing bright city lights or dim country nights. Ultra Night Mode 2.0 even works while taking Ultra Wide angle photos.
The A9 2020 is equipped with 16MP selfie camera while A5 2020 with 8MP selfie camera, both using AI Beautification technology for tailor-made selfies to better cater to different markets and beauty trends. This technology automatically identifies skin tone, age, gender, and skin color. It differentiates users for customized beautification. An all-new algorithm for smoothing out blemishes on the skin and sharper features create a make-up free look, allowing users to embrace a better version of themselves.
OPPO’s latest stabilization technology also meets consumers’ growing demand for high-quality action videos, with a built-in gyroscope on these two handsets. This creates more stable shooting while running, walking, cycling and more, along with improved video filters that allow users to create their own movies with the press of a button, ideal for creating eye-catching content in the era of short video apps.
Intelligent Design That’s Both Attractive and User-Friendly
The OPPO A Series 2020 also comes equipped with a brand new and more compact Waterdrop screen, with a 31.4% decrease in overall area compared to the previous generation, for a better look and user experience. A 6.5” full screen has an 89% screen-to-body ratio, which also uses toughened Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3+ that is twice harder than the third generation and offers better resistance to scratches. A Sunlight Screen improves screen readability under strong direct light and ensures true colors shine through in dim or dark environments, while a blue light filter relieves eye fatigue and better protects users’ eyesight in low light.
The OPPO A9 2020 also features 3D gradient designs for a more vibrant, eye-catching look, with each handset made from four curved 3D sheets, which look thinner and fits comfortably into the hand. These feature Nano-scale patterns that create multi-toned, radiant coloring from different angles and under different lighting.
Outstanding Hardware and Software for Exceptional Experience and Performance
A large capacity 5000mAh battery enables all-day use, capable of supporting 19 hours of continuous operation. The battery is also able to handle reverse charging, freeing active, on-the-go users from the worries of rapid battery drain.
In terms of audio, the OPPO A Series 2020 come with dual stereo speakers that offer higher volumes and improved sound quality, even at high volumes.

On top of that, the OPPO A Series 2020 packs an ultra-powerful performance, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 platform, with an 8-core 64-bit processor. Compared to the previous A7 using snapdragon 450, the A9 2020’s CPU is improved by 40%, while its GPU has improved by more than 100%. Especially for the gaming experience, Game Boost 2.0 accelerator technology offers improved Frame Boost and Touch Boost, which both provide lightning-fast game play response, by reducing touch screen latency and lag, delivering an overall better user experience. Frame Boost provides real-time monitoring of the phone's operations to resolve latency and game lag, while also allocating resources to avoid the phone overheating or using too much power. Touch Boost makes special adjustments to the responsiveness of the touchscreen while gaming, and also ups the sensitivity of the touchscreen while running applications so the phone feels faster and more responsive.
The handsets run ColorOS 6, based on Android 9.0, providing a fresh visual experience that’s more sleek, refined and comfortable even after prolonged use. As well as offering fingerprint and facial unlock features, this operating system comes with a whole host of smart functions such as Smart Assistant, Riding Mode, Music Party (not available in Western Europe) and Gesture Navigation which improve user convenience, safety and the phone’s overall versatility.
