Oppo has announced the immediate launch of three new additions to its A series in New Zealand, all offering 5G connectivity for a lower price than premium-tier smartphones.

The A54, A74 and A94 phones went on sale today, each equipped with a 48MP Main Camera, 16MP front camera, 8MP Ultra-Wide Angle Camera, 2MP Macro Camera and 2MP Portrait Camera, along with a 2400x1080 display.

The top of the range A94 has a launch RRP of $599 in Aotearoa and comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It features a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Screen and a 4310mAh battery. 

That should allow all-day use without having to worry about recharging until bedtime - but if you do happen to run a little low on juice, the A94 can be fully charged in as little as 56 minutes with 30W VOOC flash charge capabilities.

The A54 and A74 offer a slightly larger screen at 6.5-inch FHD+ and a 90Hz refresh rate, and come with 4GB RAM/64GB storage and 6GB RAM/128GB storage, respectively. They also boast an impressive 5000mAh battery.

"We strive to provide high-quality 5G devices that are accessible to Kiwis and the latest additions to the A series really demonstrate that," said Morgan Halim, managing director of Oppo NZ.

Oppo's latest A series phones are available in New Zealand from today for the following prices and colours:

  • OPPO A54 5G - RRP $449
    Available Fluid Black and Fantastic Purple
  • OPPO A74 5G - RRP $549
    Available in Fluid Black and Space Silver
  • OPPO A94 5G - RRP $599
    Available in Fluid Black and Cosmo Blue

The new A series models are being released shortly after Oppo launched its latest premium phone, the Find X3 Pro, which is a competitor to top-of-the-line models from Samsung and Apple.

Meanwhile, brands like Xiaomi, Samsung and Nokia have also released smartphones in the $300 - $400 range in New Zealand, each trying to tempt Kiwis with lower budgets.
