“With a long-awaited British summer right around the corner, this launch has been designed with the excitement of life after lockdown in mind. From capturing new memories with friends and family, the OPPO A54 5G offers high-end technology at a wallet-friendly price. Now that UK customers are no longer confined to their homes, we were determined to design something that is the perfect companion for life in the “new normal” – the expanded OPPO A-series does just that.”Kevin Cho, OPPO UK Managing Director
All three new products in the A Series include a 48MP main camera that captures clear and high-quality photos and are supported by a separate 8MP wide-angle camera, 2MP monochrome camera and 2MP macro camera.
