It hasn’t been long since Oppo unveiled the Ace 2 but it has already launched yet another 5G device. The company has now quietly listed the new Oppo A92s for pre-order on its official site. Though Oppo is yet to make the complete specs official, we already have a rough idea about how the device specs sheet is going to look like. By the looks of it, Oppo A92s is an attempt from Oppo to deliver an affordable 5G device without missing out on the latest trends in the mid-range segment.
Oppo A92s Overview
Design and Display
Oppo A92s sports a 6.57-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The bezels around the screen are slim except for the bottom where it is more profound than on the other sides. On the top left corner of the screen, one can notice the pill-shaped cut-out which houses the dual selfie camera.
The main talking point of the screen has been the 120Hz refresh rate. Well, we are getting used to seeing a higher refresh rate in the mid-range segment but only a few Oppo products like the Find X2 Pro have it. Even the recently launched and comparatively more premium Ace 2 only has a 90Hz screen. That being said, Oppo has certainly cut some corners to make the 120Hz screen possible. If you have noticed there is no AMOLED display, and the touch sampling rate is just 120Hz which should have been higher than the refresh rate; usually, twice.
The back panel has a 3D glass design. We can’t help but notice the square camera bump. The bump has rounded corners and encloses the quad-camera setup and an LED flash. Two of the sensors along with the LED flash are enclosed inside a pill-shaped bump that stretches along with one of the diagonal lengths. As with the recent trend, the fingerprint sensor has been moved to the side to give the back panel a cleaner look.
Performance and Memory
The device is powered by MT6873V which we all know is the MediaTek Dimensity 800. It is an octa-core chip with 2x A76 cores and 6x A55 cores. Thanks to the integrated modem, the device will support 5G out of the box. It isn’t the processor that everyone is going with at the moment but I guess the choice was made to bring the cost down. You can choose between 6 and 8 of LPDDR4X RAM both of which will come paired with 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage.
The quad-camera setup on the back is led by a 48MP primary lens which we guess is the Sony IMX586. It is accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, there is a dual selfie camera. The primary sensor is Sony’s 16MP IMX471 which is paired with a 2MP depth sensor for better selfie portraits.
Battery and Other
Though it hasn’t been official, Oppo A92s will have a massive battery of 3880mAh capacity. Oppo A91 came with support for 20W VOOC 3.0 fast charging and we expect the same on this device. The device will ship with ColorOS 7.1 based on Android 10.

All in all, it is an affordable 5G device if you can live with the LCD panel and Dimensity 800 SoC. It has an interesting set of specs. But there is no denying that there have been compromises to keep the price down while incorporating the latest trend.
