Chinese smartphone vendor Oppo has released another device in its A series with a twist: there are two models, one priced at $449 and the other at $499, with the latter having more storage and memory.

The two models have both undergone testing for absorbing a drop from heights; the company claims the devices have been dropped from a height of 10cm 28,000 times and 32 times from a height of a metre.

The operation of the A77 5G has also been tested at 55 degrees and also at minus 15 degrees Celsius, with the performance also tested at 95% humidity. The devices are also waterproofed to the IPx4 resistance level.

Other plus points cited by the manufacturer are the 5000mAh battery and the 33W SUPERVOOC charging technology. This, it is claimed, will result in a full charge in 68 minutes.

Both models have a 90Hz refresh rate and a bright mode with 600 nits of brightness to ensure a clear display.

The A77 5G is built atop the MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC which has six efficiency-led 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 cores and two 2.4 GHz Cortex-A76 performance cores, plus a Mali-G57 MC2 graphics chipset.

The cheaper model has 64GB of storage space and 4GB of memory, while the $499 model has 128GB of storage and 6GB or memory.

The device comes in two colours: Ocean Blue and Midnight Black. It has a dual 48MP camera with an additional depth sensor for images with a blurred background.

The A77 runs on Android 12 with Oppo's ColorOS overlay, the latter at version 12.1.

The $449 device is being sold at the Oppo Australia online store and Officeworks. The $499 model is available at Oppo Australia online store, JB Hi-Fi, Big W, Australia Post, The Good Guys and Bing Lee (both Midnight Black only), Harvey Norman and Woolworths.
