The circular-shaped scanner sits at the center of the back panel. The power buttons rest at a comfortable location on the right edge, while the volume keys sit on the left edge of the frame.

For photography, the phone offers a quad-camera system comprising a 64-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro shooter. For selfies, it offers a 16-megapixel camera which is embedded on the punch-hole cutout at the top left corner of the screen.

Oppo Reno5 A price, availability
Oppo hasn’t shared any detail on the new Oppo Reno5 A’s price and availability in Japan yet. To recall, the Oppo Reno3 A never made its way to India, if the Chinese brand is to follow the same approach this time the new iteration’s debut in the country seems dicey.
Meanwhile, the company is gearing for the launch of its new Oppo Reno6 series next week. The new Reno-series smartphones will be unveiled in China on May 27.
