The OPPO A78 was recently unveiled in Kenya and is available in stores for Ksh 34,000. Even though there is a 5G variant of the A78, the one we have here is the 4G variant. This is one of the latest devices in the OPPO A series to launch in Kenya. The others include the OPPO A18, OPPO A58 and OPPO A98. The A78 seems to be the standout device out of all these as OPPO is flaunting this as the key device in the series.
The OPPO A78 was unveiled to a global audience back in July this year and we are getting it in Kenya now. It is the perfect device for anyone who has been eyeing the Reno 10 series but may not have enough cash to get it. It offers good value for money and is a direct competitor to the Camon 20 series and the Redmi Note 12 series.
The A78 has the Snapdragon 680 processor from Qualcomm. This is in combination with 8GB of RAM and either 128 or 256GB of storage space. For the camera, it has a 50MP sensor at the back. The battery is a 5000 mAh unit that supports 67W charging.
