The Oppo A97 5G is now official: MediaTek processor, 12 GB of RAM and much more
The Chinese brand has a new mid-range smartphone that is now official. Its objective is to conquer users who do not want to spend a lot of money or sacrifice quality. A difficult balance where the competition is fierce.
If there is something that the smartphone market offers without stopping, that is balanced models, and a contained price, where very good characteristics are combined. And it is that most of the clients are in that limbo of: not scratching their pocket too much and, nevertheless, looking for something powerful.
This situation rules out all entry-level and mid-range phones, but also those at the top of the chain. That leaves us, if we do the math, with the good mid-range, what some call the mid-range / premium. Only this Oppo A97 5G does not go that far.
Yes, you read that right, Oppo has a new member of the family and it is called Oppo A97 5G, which has just been officially announced. Let’s see, quickly, what this smartphone of Chinese origin has. Here the analysis of his younger brother.
