OPPO A92 officially launched in Kenya with 128GB/8GB and a 5000mAh battery

OPPO Kenya unwrapped its latest family member here in Kenya via a live stream event on Facebook, pitting it against a packed niche of other mid-rangers. The launch of OPPO A92 comes a few weeks after we’ve been witnessing the unwrapping of more than a dozen similar devices but comes equipped with enough specifications to put up a good fight.

Every year at least for the past 5 years, we’ve witnessed OPPO release a new smartphone here in Kenya, and within those years, the company has made substantial upgrades on its lineup starting from top tier all the way to budget rated devices. It comes to a point when consumers have to ask themselves whether the price and spec combination is really worth it

Product manager of OPPO Kenya Ernest Teigut while announcing the release of OPPO A92 said the company was working towards a better experience by building core bottom layer hardware technologies, software engineering that should last for the next three years courtesy of an investment worth USD 7 Billion.  

Ernest further said the company had achieved impressive results according IDC which ranks the company amongst top five in the world for Q4 of 2019 with 30.6 million units shipped globally. He added the company’s total number in the country stands at more than 740 confirming the company’s intention to invest in the country.

OPPO A92 comes with a Neo display screen that has a resolution that maxes out at 1080p on a 6.5-inch screen. The screen maxes out on the front panel only giving way for the punch hole selfie camera. OPPO’s A series lineup is yet to mature enough but is well past the first steps thanks to better performing series which have made a name for the brand.

Touting the decision to merge the fingerprint sensor with the power button sitting on the side, OPPO A92 eliminates the need to separately wake the screen and swipe a fingerprint to unlock as is the case with both under-display sensors or fingerprint sensors located at the back of the phone.

OPPO says they’ve adopted a C-shaped rear camera setup resembling a constellation of polar sky both for looks and to practically combine the 48 Megapixels camera, 8 Megapixels Ultra-wide camera, 2 Megapixels Depth Camera and finally a 2 Megapixels Black and White Camera.

The selfie camera maxes out at 16 Megapixels complete with tweaks that improve beautifications through the use of artificial intelligence. Ernest touted the phone’s capability to match skin tone and improve on contours that naturally brings out your true-self.
