Oppo is preparing to release another mid-range smartphone under its A series. Revealed as the Oppo A97 5G, the handset will be available in three colours with a familiar design. The Oppo A97 5G will arrive in China ahead of other markets.

It seems that Oppo is about to release an A96 successor, six months after announcing the smartphone in China. For context, Oppo announced a global A96 in March with completely different specifications from the Chinese version. Now, Evan Blass and MySmartPrice have showcased the Oppo A97, a 5G smartphone, unlike the global Oppo A96.

As Blass' leaked images show, the Oppo A97 5G will arrive in three colours with two rear-facing cameras and a subtly different design from either Oppo A96 model. Specifically, the Oppo A97 5G has a central punch-hole camera, squared-off edges and a larger camera housing than its predecessors. Incidentally, the Oppo A97 5G has a USB Type-C port, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a downward-firing speaker and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

Additionally, MySmartPrice alleges that the Oppo A97 has a 6.56-inch display with a 1080p native resolution, a 5,000 mAh battery and at least 8 GB of RAM with 256 GB of storage. Supposedly, Oppo will offer the A97 5G with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage too, which will retail for CNY 2,299 (~US$333). For some reason, pricing for the lesser RAM configuration has not leaked yet. A release date has not emerged either, but the device will weigh approximately 190 g while measuring 163.8 x 75.1 x 7.99 mm.
