We welcome a new economic middle line direct from OPPO factories in China and succeeding last OPPO A53, although its name is not correlative. We say it because the launch is the new OPPO A55, a mobile phone that seeks to position itself in the price range of 200 euros in the market, at least with its current price in China.
OPPO’s new phone bets on 5G and on an increase in battery, reaching up to 5,000 mAh with 10W load, to become a competitive model although at the moment of truth it is even less powerful than its predecessor. A strange tactic from the manufacturer that today releases a new phone in its country, with a good chance of becoming an international model.

The new OPPO A55 lands sporting a screen with notch 6.5 inches and HD + resolution. The LCD panel of the phone thus chooses to avoid a perforation but its own technology pushes the fingerprint reader away from it, specifically to the side of the phone, a solution that is increasingly used by different manufacturers. The phone comes with Android 11 running under ColorOS 11.1, by the way.
In terms of power, OPPO places a MediaTek Dimensity 700 in front of its new terminal, automatically granting it 5G connectivity plus WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.1, and a USB Type-C port. And yes, it does have a headphone jack. The phone can be purchased in a single memory option, with 8GB and 128GB and a tray to add an extra gig through a microSD.
Three rear cameras make up the main photographic equipment of the OPPO A55, with 13 megapixels f / 2.2 in front, 2 megapixels f / 2.4 for macro photography and 2 megapixels f / 2.4 for depth readings and to be able to offer selective blurring. On the front, 8 megapixels f / 2.0 for selfies.
