The A78 5G provides clear and realistic images anytime of the day. It offers up to 20% faster image processing which treats users to incredible detail and colour accuracy in low light scenes.
“Our main goal with the A78 5G was to tailor-make it to fit today’s user needs while still delivering powerful performance, a trendy appearance and the best in camera quality. OPPO is all about providing accessible world class technology phones that stay a class apart at an affordable price.” Says Liam Faurie, Head of Go-to-market & Operations at OPPO South Africa.

On the visual side, its Colour-Rich Display delivers a smooth and comfortable visual experience for video and game content. All-Day AI Eye Comfort is also included to keep users’ eyes healthy and comfortable through 24/7 eye protection.
The OPPO A78 5G boasts a visually stunning design that incorporates polished rings around the camera module, complemented by a pattern of shining lights that extends to the back, creating an eye capturing sparkling beam of light. The backplate is also adorned with the iconic OPPO Glow process, which lends a fingerprint-free matte finish and a subtle shimmering appearance.
