Oppo A74 and A54 Specifications
Sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chip, OPPO A74 delivers not only a Super Smooth Performance, but minimizes phone lag, even over time. Plus, with up to 6GB of RAM it keeps up with all the tasks and messages, whether streaming a video, playing a game, or replying to messages.
The OPPO A74 also offers all-day power thanks to its large 5000mAh battery and 33W Flash Charge. In fact, with OPPO A74’s 11V3A solution in its 33W Flash Charge, the phone charges quickly in a comparably short time. One can enjoy 54% of battery life in only a 30-minute charge. Or in 72 minutes OPPO A74 will fully charge. At this speed, OPPO’s lab tests suggest that in just 5 minutes, you’ll get 5.73 hours of calling, 1.37 hours on Instagram and 1.81 hours of YouTube, although actual results may vary.
OPPO A74’s Rear AI Triple Camera features a 48MP main camera, that outputs brilliant photos and videos in a high degree of clarity. Paired with the 48MP main camera is a 2MP depth camera, great for bokeh portrait shots, and a 2MP macro camera suited for capturing tiny details. Users will have a larger range of options to enhance or highlight photos, whether capturing a portrait, your daily life, or textures. The AI Scene Enhancement is able to intelligently recognize what the camera is looking at, and will automatically brighten or improve the look of a shot, whether it’s of plants, landscapes, food, flowers, beach, sunrise and sunsets, or other scenarios. Photos taken in the evening or in a dimly lit environment can also be instantly improved with Night Mode to boost the clarity of nighttime shots. A 16MP camera on the front of the phone is OPPO A74’s AI Selfie Camera that manages to capture more life-like and clearer selfies.
To capture beautiful shots, OPPO A74 is not only designed for photography. It boasts video filming features to make it easy to capture footage that you can quickly edit and share. For stabilized video, Steady Video films in 30FPS at 1080 or 720p. Slow motion videos can be filmed with SLO-MO in 720p at 120FPS. If your photo library is filled with your latest memories, you can stitch it all together with OPPO A74’s video editing app, Soloop. In just one tap you can instantly create a video matched to music. Soloop is like having a director, screenwriter, and editor in the palm of your hands.
Every detail on OPPO A74 is meticulously crafted to ensure a compact and narrow design, without sacrificing on offering great technology. OPPO A74 offers a high-end performance, but only weighs about 175g and is only 7.95mm thin, while also managing to feature a 3D curved back cover for a comfortable grip. In fact, OPPO A74’s die-casting aluminum alloy technology makes it possible for the thickest part of the motherboard cover to be only 0.21mm, while the battery is reinforced on both sides, which also works to narrow the phone’s profile.
OPPO A74’s AMOLED FHD+ punch-hole display with Ultra-high resolution is immersive for its users, as its screen is large with a high resolution. Plus, whether you’re gaming or watching a show on your phone, All-day Eye Care keeps your eyes comfortable throughout your day (and night). The large 6.43-inch screen makes every attempt to utilize every inch of its screen.
OPPO A74 is also a great gaming device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662, which boasts a high-end performance to ensure that your phone won’t slow down while the game is in progress.
The A54 runs on a Mediatek Helio P35 (MT6765) Octa-Core Processor, with HyperBoost improving the performance and smoothness of select apps or games by reallocating system resources, depending on how you use your phone. A54 also features a long-lasting battery life with 5000mAh of capacity, and 18W Fast Charge. This will last you up to 2.2 days on a single charge or give you 19.9 hours of YouTube video playback.
Three cameras are laid out in a simple, yet premium matrix layout often found on high-end phones. The lens uses a superposition process through etching and screen printing, while the decorative color uses metal oxide colors that harmoniously blend into the overall colors of the phone. The Rear Cameras itself feature a 13MP Main Camera, 2MP Macro Camera for close range shots, and 2MP Bokeh for brilliant bokeh shots that blur the background and highlight the subject of the photo. What stands out about A54 however is the 16MP Front camera that makes selfies clearer than ever so you can capture each and every memory of yourself throughout the years.
A54 also supports filming videos including SLO-MO at 720P at 90FPS with the rear camera, and up to 10 video Filters including Original, Gentle, Noon, Subtle and more. The A54 is IPX4 Waterproof
