Continuing to prove premium doesn't have to mean pricey, OPPO has today announced the launch of its latest camera-phone, the AX5. The new entry-level device boasts an AI enhanced dual camera, speedy facial unlock, a longer lasting 4230mAh battery and 6.2 inch super full screen, all for $379.

The AX5 is firmly focused on snap-happy Aussies, with its rear camera, boasting a 13MP + 2MP dual-lens module and AI enhanced Portrait Mode. Coupled with its 8MP f/2.2 aperture front camera and OPPO’s Beautify technology, the newest addition to the popular A-Series is built for capturing those unforgettable moments in undeniable quality.

The AI enhanced cameras also support OPPO’s AI Face Recognition Technology, removing the need for a fingerprint sensor and offering users a fast, safe and convenient way to unlock their phone.

Whether you’re streaming or gaming on the AX5, users can take advantage of the device’s 6.2” Super Full Screen display, with an impressive 88.8% screen-to-body ratio, for a truly immersive viewing experience.

The AX5’s powerful 4230mAh battery means you can binge watch your favourite shows for up to 14 hours or play your favourite games for 11 hours, helping you get through even the busiest of days.

“Our A Series continues to be extremely popular within Australia. We’ve continued to evolve and innovate, key elements of the device, such as the camera and the screen, so we expect the AX5 to be a major hit locally.”

“We see huge demand for affordable smartphones with flagship features and the AX5 will give our customers just that, with no need to compromise on quality or design. It’s that approach which has earned us Canstar’s Most Satisfied Customer award for 2018 and the AX5 builds on that promise further. We cannot wait for customers to get their hands on and experience this latest device,” said Michael Tran, Managing Director at OPPO Australia.

The enhancements don’t just stop at the battery and camera. The AX5 supports greater storage capacity and effortless multitasking with low power consumption too. It uses a 14nm Qualcomm Octa-core CPU, packed with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM, with expandable memory up to 256GB to further push the boundaries of what’s possible from an entry level device.

The AX5 runs on OPPO’s latest ColorOS 5.1 operating system - which itself sports a brand new visual design. New content layout and graphic elements have been introduced to provide the best user experience to date.

The operating system isn’t the only thing with a new look, as the AX5 wears a unique diamond-shaped design on the back cover. Available in two stylish colours, Diamond Blue and Diamond Pink, with individual cut-glass sections that reflect in the light, the AX5 shines from every angle.
