The Oppo A74 5G is the newest affordable 5G smartphone on the block
Oppo has officially launched the Oppo A74 5G in the European market. It is a low-cost 5G smartphone that aims to strike a balance between price and performance. The A74 5G's specifications are pretty run-of-the-mill, but that is understandable, given its EUR 299 price tag.
The Oppo A74 5G ships with a 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel clocked at 90Hz. An entry-level Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 SoC enables 5G connectivity. Memory and storage options max out at 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to 256GB via a micro SD card. Lastly, the smartphone's 5,000mAh battery supports 18W fast charging over a USB Type-C port.
Moving on to the cameras, the Oppo A74 5G packs four sensors at the back. The primary 48MP (f/1.7) sensor is coupled with an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens (f/2.2), a 2MP (f/2.4) depth sensor and a 2MP (f/2.4) macro lens. A 16MP module takes care of selfies and video calls. Video recording capabilities on the front and rear cameras are capped at 1080p 30 FPS.
Other Oppo A74 5G features include 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, and GPS. The smartphone uses a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication. It is available in two colourways, namely Fluid Black and Space Silver.
