Oppo has debuted a new notched smartphone for budget buyers called the AX5.

The new entry-level device boasts an AI enhanced dual camera, fast facial unlock, a 4230mAh battery and 6.2 inch super full screen. Under the hood, the AX5 is equipped with a Qualcomm Octa-core CPU, 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM.

As usual, it runs on Oppo's ColorOS 5.1 and comes with support for expandable storage via MicroSD.

The Oppo AX5 will be available in two colors: Diamond Blue and Diamond Pink

“We see huge demand for affordable smartphones with flagship features and the AX5 will give our customers just that, with no need to compromise on quality or design. It’s that approach which has earned us Canstar’s Most Satisfied Customer award for 2018 and the AX5 builds on that promise further. We cannot wait for customers to get their hands on and experience this latest device,” said Michael Tran, Managing Director at OPPO Australia.

“Our A Series continues to be extremely popular within Australia. We’ve continued to evolve and innovate key elements of the device, such as the camera and the screen, so we expect the AX5 to be a major hit locally.”

In Australia, the Oppo AX5 is priced at an RRP of $379. It'll be available from the 10th of September at JB HiFi, The Good Guys (Blue only), TeleChoice (Blue only), Officeworks (Blue only) and RetraVision. 

The device also be available through Woolworths and MobileCiti from the 17th.
