Chinese smartphone maker OPPO has hit the market again, this time with another low-budget device, the A52, that retails for $299. Last year, the company released a phone with the same price, the AX5s.

In a statement, OPPO Australia said the A52 had a 5000mAh battery, a 1080p Neo-Display screen and an AI quad camera with a wide-angle set-up for what it claimed was "picture-perfect photo and videos." The device has 4Gb of memory and 64GB of storage, with a SD-card slot that can take up a card of up to 256GB.

Michael Tran, the managing director for the company in Australia, said: “The A52 is the latest device to join OPPO’s A-series, giving Aussies a quality smartphone at an affordable price, with all the features users want in a phone.

"At OPPO we put the user first and the A52 is an extension of this, providing an immersive user experience like no other."

“Users can enjoy a high-quality picture display that can adjust to certain light scenarios, a long-lasting battery and AI quad camera setup with video stability so users can shoot on the go.

"Premium doesn’t have to be pricey and the A52 is a perfect example of this."

The screen is 6.5 inches and has an embedded front camera with the left and right bezels being 1.73mm in width. It has a Qualcomm SDM665 processor.

The display features Low Temperature Polycrystalline Silicon technology which makes for a sharp picture.

An 8MP front camera and a main AI quad cam set-up are present, comprising a 12MP main camera along with a 8MP Ultra Wide Angle Lens.

It comes in two colours, Twilight Black and Stream White.

The device will be available on pre-order at JB HiFI from today (30 April).

It is claimed to charge from zero to 50% in 45 minutes due to its 18W fast charge.

The fingerprint lock is on the side of the device. Sound is through dual stereo speakers.

The phone runs Color OS 7.1, OPPO's customised version of Android and also features anti-shake video performance, due to electronic image stabilisation.

It will go on sale on 11 May at JB HiFi, Officeworks, Kogan, Bing Lee, The Good Guys, MobileCiti and Woolworths Mobile.
