As already happened with A54 5G e A94 5G, even the announcement of this new OPPO A74 came as a surprise, without too many ads but directly for sale. Thus OPPO's expansion work for the mid-range range continues, carrying on the capillarization of the A family. And as often happens in these cases, also for A74 there are two variants, a 4G and the other 5G.
15 / 04 Update: the 5G version of the device also arrives in Italy. Find all the details on price and availability (together with a dedicated promo) directly at the end of the article.
OPPO A74 4G and official 5G: all the news and differences
Design and display
For both models, OPPO A74 shows off the now canonical screen punch-hole, although there are differences both in size and in specifications. On OPPO A74 4G, in fact, we find a screen AMOLED da 6,43 "Full HD + (2.400 x 1.080 pixels) at 60 Hz, while on the 5G there's a LCD da 6,5 "Full HD + with refresh rate a 90 Hz. Consequently, the biometric unlocking method also changes, which on the first has an ID sensor in the display and on the second a more classic side one. For the dimensions we have 160,3 x 73,8 x 7,95mm and 175 for 4G and 162,9 x 74,7 x 8,4mm for 5G.
Hardware and camera
There are also substantial differences in the rest of the technical system of the two smartphones. Starting from OPPO A74 4G, driving it is a Qualcomm chipset Snapdragon 662, manufactured at 11 nm with octa-core Kryo 260 CPU up to 2,0 GHz and an Adreno 610 GPU. On OPPO A74 5Ginstead, there is the most recent Snapdragon 480, with an 8 nm production process. Inside there is a Kryo 460 octa-core CPU up to 2,0 GHz and an Adreno 619 GPU.
Memories do not change, either way from 6 / 128 GB LPDDR4x with microSD, as well as the battery from 5.000 mAh. Strangely, it is the 4G variant that enjoys recharging 33W, while that in 5G drops to 18W. The software is on both ColorOS 11.1 based on Android 11. Connectivity includes Wi-Fi ac Dual Band, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C, mini-jack input and GPS.
As expected, the photographic sector also changes. On the version 4G there is a triple camera from 48 + 2 + 2 MP f/1.7-2.4-2.4 with macro and depth sensor. On that 5G there is a quad room 48 + 8 + 2 + 2 MP with the addition of a wide-angle lens. The selfie camera remains unchanged from 16 MP f/ 2.4.
