OPPO a55

OPPO Kenya has announced the availability of two new smartphones in Kenya, the OPPO A16K, and OPPO A55.

OPPO A55 Specifications:


OPPO A55’s design captivates, especially once combined with the available color options. For instance, Rainbow Blue, a new turquoise-like base color made up of particles uniformly arranged into a pyramid that shifts from a blue gradient to silver, and dynamically refracts a dazzling kaleidoscope of rainbow colors akin to the Milky Way. Users can also opt for an elegant Starry Black, featuring OPPO Glow Design, with specks of triangular crystals that scintillate like stars in the night sky.

Beyond just the colors, OPPO A55’s 3D curved design makes for an Ultra Exquisite Design. This starts with a grip that comfortably nestles in the palm of one’s hands thanks to a Thinner Middle Frame. The battery cover is enhanced with a faux metal texture and the weight is only 193g and encircled by an aluminum alloy decorative ring that resists bending. Designed for superior ergonomics is Side Fingerprint Unlock, embedded on the power button, while the AI Face Unlock mechanism gives users the choice between two convenient ways to unlock the phone.



OPPO A55’s AI Triple HD Cameras, which includes a True 50MP AI Camera, 2MP Bokeh Camera, and 2MP Macro Camera, stand out with a Dual Main-Camera Design that uses CD-patterned decorative rings giving off the guise of a high-end smartphone.

The 50MP AI Camera itself is dynamic with pixel binning technology. However, in lieu of capturing 50MP shots by default, users can output 12.5MP photos as it captures brighter photos and saves storage space. The 2MP bokeh camera captures beautiful and precise portrait shots. Even at night, OPPO A55 ensures clear shots of the subject in the photo, while preserving the background details with Backlight HDR, while Night Mode adjusts the exposure in dim environments. Night Plus Filters for the rear camera capture more pronounced footage that makes for stunning night scenes. The filters add a splash of color to warm up or brighten up images for impact.

OPPO A55 review: Just the basics - GadgetMatch

The front 16MP Selfie Camera is designed to capture naturally beautiful selfies, thanks to AI Beautification. This feature, also available on the rear camera, can touch up the user’s skin tone and complexion based on the lighting conditions, age, or even gender while retaining the details of one’s skin. For extra measure, OPPO A55 can optimize the contour of a wide variety of facial shapes. Additional camera features from OPPO A55 include Dazzle Color, Photo Filters, Pano shots, etc., which can counteract the effect of shaky hands when taking a photo. When in need of a source of light, OPPO A55’s 360° Fill Light offers a fun and interactive way to capture a clear selfie in dim environments by illuminating the display and using this as a light source.

Users will enjoy a battery life that can make phone calls for 29.79 hours, and play music for 24.40 hours straight thanks to the A55’s 5,000mAh battery. In those moments when OPPO A55 is nearly depleted of its battery life, 18W Fast Charge offers a 9V2A fast charging solution that can replenish the phone 33% in only 30 minutes. Smart Temperature Control and Optimal Heat Dissipation ensures the phone remains cool. Super Power Saving Mode deploys a series of power-saving strategies on selected apps to conserve battery life, while Super Nighttime Standby minimizes power consumption at night so the battery only drops 1.37%. With Optimized Night Charging OPPO A55 learns the user’s sleep patterns and schedules a nighttime charging plan exclusively. OPPO A55 is enhanced with IPX4 Splash-Waterproof and Short Circuit Protection.

OPPO A55’s large battery powers an Octa-core processor and offers a large storage capacity and memory at 4GB RAM + 128GB ROM. In addition, A55 offers Dual SIM Standby and a Micro SD card slot that can expand storage to 256GB. OPPO A55 features a large 6.51-inch Punch-Hole Display for an immersive user experience. AI Smart Backlight will auto-adjust the brightness settings in different lighting environments. All the while, the screen is comfortable on the eyes as the display offers All-day Eye Care.

Moreover, through its Color OS 11.1 software, OPPO can run smoothly thanks to System Booster, a suite of features that optimizes processes and frees up storage. This suite includes Idle Time Optimizer, Storage Optimizer, and UI First 3.0. The response rate can be improved by 5.0% while the frame rate stability improved by 6.9%. Beyond speed, OPPO A55 also keeps users focused on the task on hand. ColorOS 11.1’s gaming-centric features include Game Focus Mode and Bullet Screen, while safety features include Private Safe and App Lock. Useful for work, OPPO A55 also comes with FlexDrop, which minimizes app windows for multitasking, and Three-finger Translate with Google Lens, enabling users to capture and translate screenshotted text. ColorOS 11.1 offers LinkBoost 2.0, which improves the Internet’s stability for a smoother connection at low latency and high speeds.
