Brands are nourishing their catalogs for the mid-range with 5G and there are more and more options, sometimes not very different so that the user can decide on a minimum of details. This is the case of the new OPPO A95 5G, another option from this manufacturer within the more standard mid-range.
The new A95 5G is very similar to the OPPO A93 5G that we saw last January. It is very similar both inside and out, but in this case, the processor is somewhat higher and the screen is AMOLED.

The attack of the clones
If for a couple of years it is no longer easy to distinguish a mid-range cell phone aesthetically, the OPPO A95 5G makes it difficult with its predecessors. We see the same rear with gradient and the camera module in the form of dominoes in one corner.
That yes, this new mobile presents a somewhat different design of this module, proportionally larger and with a strip at the bottom. But on the front, we also see the hole in the screen on the left side and the chin. The fingerprint reader is on the screen and is quite thin and light, with a thickness of 7.8 millimeters and 173 grams of weight (without having a small screen).
Speaking precisely of the screen, in this case, the A95 5G features a 6.43-inch AMOLED panel, unlike the IPS of the A93. A draw at FullHD+ resolution, but a missed opportunity to set a refresh rate higher than the conventional 60 Hz.
Switch to MediaTek and smaller battery
On the inside, in terms of performance and autonomy, we see other novelties with respect to the previous. While the A93 was in the less ambitious line of Qualcomm for 5G, in the case of the A95 5G we see a MediaTek Dimensity 800U, accompanied by 8 GB of RAM. Storage is either 128 GB or 256 GB, so we’ll see two variants.
The battery shrinks slightly, though maintaining fast charging. In this case, we see a 4,310 mAh battery with 30-watt fast charging, Bluetooth 5.1, and audio minijack.
At the photographic level, it is not a mobile called to stand out, seeing a very usual combination of cameras:
- 48-megapixel main sensor with f/1.7 aperture lens.
- Wide-angle with an 8-megapixel sensor with f/2.2 aperture lens.
- Macro with a 2-megapixel sensor with f/2.4 aperture lens.
- Front camera with a 16-megapixel sensor.
Price and Availability of the OPPO A95 5G
The OPPO A95 5G has been presented in China and it remains to be seen if it will make the jump to the international market. It is available in the variants we have discussed and in black, white, and blue colors:
- OPPO A95 5G 8+128 GB: 1,999 yuan
- OPPO A95 5G 8+256 GB: 2,299 yuan
