OPPO A96 with 8GB RAM, 256GB Storage & 5G launching in Kenya

OPPO has announced plans to bring the A96 to Kenya. The new phone is quite a departure from previous OPPO A90-series devices. This is because of a couple of things including:

The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G (6 nm) processor which delivers an exceptionally smooth user experience.

There’s 8GB RAM and 256GB storage which is complemented by RAM expansion. OPPO says this gives the A96 boosted performance ensuring better multi-tasking and smoother experience.

The A96 features OPPO’s Glow Design manufacturing process which the company says uses the best diamond-cut glass panel and places it in a vacuum to compress the crystal pattern to create an eye-catching, smooth, anti-fingerprint and dirt-proof texture.

OPPO says the 33W fast charger gives users more flexibility with a 30-minute charge providing 55% of battery power. In addition, the company says it has made great strides in improving the battery usage efficiency with features such as Super Power Saving Mode.

The A96 also has Optimised Night Charging, which allows the phone’s AI to learn the user’s sleep patterns and schedule a segmented battery charging plan during the nighttime.
