If Oppo is known for anything, it’s their camera-centric mid-range and upper-mid-range smartphones that make up a good chunk of their portfolio. Released back in September this year, the Oppo A9 2020 was another excellent optics-minded offering from the Chinese phone maker. This mid-ranger has now received a price cut and is available for a discounted starting price.

Oppo’s official dealers confirmed that the OPPO A9 2020 8GB/128 GB variant, which was initially retailing for 45,666 PKR, will now be offered for a starting price of 42,999 PKR after a 3,000 PKR discount. The phone sports a trendy-but-unremarkable design but makes up for it with some robust internals, especially for a mid-tier device. The 6.5-inch display touts a dew-drop notch and produces an HD+ resolution and an 89% screen-to-body ratio.

On the back, you get a standard rear-mounted fingerprint scanner on the A9 2020, right under the vertically arranged camera setup. The glass back panel brings three different color options: Marine Green, Space Purple, and Vanilla Mint. The phone packs a quad-camera setup, with a 48-megapixel primary shooter, next to an 8-megapixel ultra-wide 119-degree lens, and a pair of depth and portrait sensors. For selfies, you get an AI-augmented 16-megapixel camera. The optics package offers EIS + gyroscope-aided-stabilization for videography, as well as Oppo’s Ultra Night Mode 2.0.

The phone has a Snapdragon 665 chipset at its heart, along with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of onboard storage, expandable up to 256 GB, thanks to the dedicated microSD card slot. This hardware draws power from a 5,000 mAh battery that should easily last you a day or two of heavy-to-medium usage. The battery is beefy enough to charge your other devices with Reverse Charging.

The A9 2020 runs on an Android Pie (9.0) based Color OS 6, which features Game Boost 2.0 for snappier performance. Oppo claims that Game Boost improves performance by as much as 20% when compared to the predecessor Snapdragon 660 chip. The Oppo A5 2020 already had a price cut a few days ago and now with the latest Oppo Price cut, the A series performance to price ratio is superior to many smartphones in this price bracket.
