Oppo really likes the A59 name, it seems, since it’s now unveiled the second smartphone bearing it. The original was released in 2016, and obviously the new one has nothing in common with it aside from the name.
The new A59 is now official in India, and some details about it were outed just a few days ago. The phone is powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 6020 chipset, and it starts at INR 14,999.
That amount of cash nets you the version with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. If you want 2GB more RAM, the price is INR 16,999. Those seem to be your only options. Both of them will become available on December 25 at Oppo’s own online store, Flipkart, as well as Amazon.
The A59 has a 6.56-inch 720×1,612 LCD screen with a waterdrop notch and 90 Hz refresh rate, up to 720-nit peak brightness, support for microSD cards, dual-SIM functionality, a 13 MP rear camera, a 2 MP depth sensor, an 8 MP selfie snapper, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a 3.5mm headphone jack, stereo speakers, and a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 33W SuperVOOC fast wired charging.
It runs Android 13 with ColorOS 13.1 on top, and is IP54 certified for dust and splash resistance. Oppo boasts that the A59 passed its “rigorous 36-month fluency test”, which means it will “still be flying through tasks years later”.
