OPPO Kenya looks to add another smartphone into its portfolio with today’s announcement of the A92 device at a KES 30,000 starting price. A number of smartphones on the mid-price range have come in packing a decent set of specifications and so does the OPPO A92.
The phone packs a 6.5-inch HD+ (1080 x 2400 pixels) LCD display with a 20:9 ratio. On the top left corner sits a 16MP hole-punch selfie camera that is able to shoot videos at 1080p resolution. Right behind lays a quad-camera setup consisting of a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP Black and White lens.
The phone comes powered by a Snapdragon 665 processor alongside 8GB of RAM. All your files can then be stored in 128GB internal storage. The phone runs on Android 10 out of the box which won’t require you to wait for major software updates later on. Additionally, users will be lucky to have a huge 5000mAh battery, charged via the phone’s USB-C port with 18W support.
OPPO Enco W31 Earbuds
Next to the A92, OPPO did also make a step into the world of wireless earbuds with its first-ever unit, dubbed Enco W31. As one would expect the earbuds’ general design look familiar to those that already exist in the market. The stems do look a little different with the rounded ends but the in-ear speakers unapologetically resemble the Apple’s Airpods Pro.
According to OPPO, the earbuds are already selling in Kenyan stores at KES 8,000. This is a reasonable price considering what a number of high-end models tend to cost. The Enco W31 buds are promised to come with low latency transmission that will ensure both buds simultaneously give out good surround sound. They also come with sensors that get to automatically play or stop music when you put them on or take them off. Furthermore, both buds feature microphones that help in active noise cancellation especially during voice calls.
The noise reduction feature is powered by AI to differentiate between noise and human voices during calls. A compact circular charging case is also attached with small LED lights to indicate charge levels. With 25mAh batteries on each bud, you should expect about 3.5 hours on a single charge with music playback. The charging case then offers 15 hours on a single charge with its 350mAh battery.
One would describe the Enco W31 earbuds as a sweet deal considering you don’t get much with other models at such a price. However, you would wish that they did better with battery life. Would you get them?
