Chinese smartphone vendor OPPO has released two new 5G models in its A series, the A74 5G that retails for $449 and the A54 5G that sells for $399.

These two devices will become the lowest priced 5G models in the Australian market and both have been available since Tuesday.

Both have 90Hz screens as the baseline and a 90.5% screen ratio on a 6.49-inch FHD punch-hole LCD display. The display has also got a 180Hz touch sampling rate.

The A54 5G and the A74 5G are both powered by the Snapdragon 480 5G SoC and both will work on standalone or non-standalone networks.

Both devices have large 5000mAh batteries, coupled with 18W Fast charge on the OPPO A74 and 10W on the OPPO A54.

OPPO Australia managing director Michael Tran said the new devices were testament to 5G coming of age in Australia.

"What we're seeing is a two pronged approach to 5G rollout in Australia. On the one hand you have the major carriers accelerating the rollout of the network," he said.

"Then on the other, you have brands such as OPPO maturing the hardware to make 5G accessible to everyone. With the latest A Series devices, we're ushering in a new era of affordable luxury."
