OPPO announced a new mid-range phone in China with the A2 Pro. While its key specs are something you’d expect, the main selling point of the A2 Pro is that OPPO offers a 4-year battery warranty for it.
You see, OPPO is confident with the A2 Pro’s 5000mAh battery that with its Battery Health Engine and dedicated power ship, the battery will be able to retain 88% of its original capacity after 1000 cycles, which should theoretically translate to one charge a day for four years before it reaches 80%. Should the 5000mAh battery drop to below 80% within 4 years, OPPO offers a one-time free battery replacement for the A2 Pro.
Going to what it offers on the table, the A2 Pro is powered by a Dimensity 7050 processor that can be paired with up to 12GB RAM and 512GB UFS 3.1 internal storage. The display is a familiar 6.7-inch 120hz curved AMOLED display that appears to be similar to the one used on the Reno8 T 5G–though the selfie camera only houses an 8-megapixel shooter.
The large camera module at the back only houses a 64-megapixel main camera and 2-megapixel depth sensor, and you do get an IP54 rating and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The A2 Pro has glass (Vast Black and Twilight) and vegan leather (Desert Brown) options, and is priced at CNY 1799(~Php 15k) for the 8GB/128GB model and CNY 2,399(~Php 19k) for the 12GB/512GB model. While we’re not sure if the A2 Pro is going to be made available outside of China, we’re hoping that we get a similar kind of battery warranty with future phone releases in the Philippines–after all, people would take around 3 years on average before they change their phones.
