OPPO India has launched its latest A79 5G, built for users who seek a premium 5G device that strikes a perfect balance between sleek design, smooth performance, and a fast-charging battery that lasts over a day of mixed-use. The device is priced at INR 19,999 and will be available starting Oct 28, 2023, at the OPPO Store, Flipkart, Amazon, and other retail outlets.
Sleek, durable, and built for entertainment
The OPPO A79 5G—available in Glowing Green and Mystery Black colour options—weighs just 193g and is a mere 7.99mm thin. Its rear surface sports a rectangular island that draws attention to the dual polished rings around the camera lens. Also, the unique treatment of its robust polycarbonate frame to give it a metallic texture is another of its standout design elements.
For extra durability, the IP54-rated smartphone is subjected to more than 320 quality tests and 130 extreme reliability tests, which include drop, anti-splash, radiation, extreme weather, fire and flame retardant, temperature protection, and signal tests to ensure enduring craftsmanship and quality.
Up front, the device sports a 6.72-inch FHD+ Sunlight display with a punch-hole camera. This screen comes with a 90Hz refresh rate for smooth scrolling and packs OPPO’s All-Day AI Eye Comfort for continuous eye protection and a safe viewing experience.
Users can enjoy HD video content from Amazon Prime and Netflix thanks to its Widevine L1 certification while its dual speakers provide immersive stereo surround sound, defined by crisp audio, achieved through optimised noise reduction and echo-suppression algorithms.
The OPPO A79 5G also includes an Ultra Volume Mode that exceeds the 100% volume level to reach up to 300% for speakers and 200% for earpiece calls; the A79 has undergone hardware upgrades that enhance the sound quality by 86% compared to the previous generation. As a plus, this smartphone also comes with a 3.5mm headphone port for wired sound.
Photography for all moods and occasions
OPPO A79 5G sports a powerful camera setup, including a 50MP AI camera, a 2MP portrait camera, and an 8MP selfie camera.
Its Samsung ISOCELL JN1 50MP camera captures clear and crisp quad-binned 12.5MP snapshots. In low light, the smartphone’s Ultra Night mode uses composite multi-frame noise reduction and HDR technology to reduce grain and improve clarity when shooting in varying degrees of darkness for clearer nightscapes and vivid colours. Users can also switch to 50MP for hi-re photos in brighter environments.
For portraits, the 50MP camera and the 2MP Omnivision OV02B1B work together to detect the depth of field, distinguish the subjects from the background, and then blur it; here, the 50MP lens captures the photo, while the 2MP lens assists in depth detection.
The smartphone’s 8MP selfie camera uses proprietary Selfie HDR algorithms to improve the dynamic range of the front camera to ensure accurate exposure, crisp details, and high-quality photos when the user shoots in backlit environments. The camera automatically detects and suppresses bright background lights, while bokeh and HDR are used together to create well-lit selfies in Portrait mode.
