OPPO subtly brought a new budget-friendly 5G phone to the Philippines, the new OPPO A78 5G.

Arriving after fancy launches such as the Reno 8 T 5G and Find N2 Flip, the new OPPO A78 5G arrives in the Philippines carrying a couple of familiar specs and features. For one, there’s the trusty MediaTek Dimensity 700 octa-core processor, with an apt 8GB of RAM and a decent 128GB of expandable storage.


Like most phones in its class, the A78 5G has a 6.56-inch HD+ display with HD+ pixel resolution that’s protected by Panda glass. There’s an 8-megapixel selfie camera on top, and a sharp 50-megapixel main shooter on the back joined by a monochrome lens.

It also enjoys a large 5,000mAh battery, which can be fully charged by the 33W SuperVOOC adapter in only 67 minutes. As a cherry on top, the A78 5G comes with stereo speakers for better audio.


The new OPPO A78 5G is available in the Philippines for a price of Php14,999. Get it at the company’s official Lazada and Shopee stores, and through physical shops nationwide.
