Chinese smartphone vendor OPPO has released two more models into the Australian market, both aimed at the price-conscious buyer, and both from its new A Series 2020.

“By combining quality and affordability with superb photography, beautiful design and long lasting battery life, the A Series 2020 will set a new standard in the entry level smartphone market."

The A9 2020, available in Marine Green, has an RRP of $399 while the A5 2020, in Marine Green and Space Purple, is available only from Telstra from 29 October, and costs $299.
