The A92 is one of the smartphones Oppo has introduced in the 2nd quarter of 2020 and here is its price in Nigeria and specs.
And there’s hardly any difference between the phone and A72.
However, when it comes to the A52 and the A92, there are some differences. And as you would expect, the A92 is more impressive than the A52.
But what exactly is up with this phone?

Well, these are the kinds of questions this article is meant to answer.

Oppo A92 Price in Nigeria
The price of A92 from Oppo in Nigeria is $275 USD which is N107,250 Naira @ an exchange rate of N390 / Dollar
A92 has a design completely similar to those of the Oppo A52 and the A72.
But for those who haven’t seen this design in question, the phone measures 162 x 75.5 x 8.9.
And for those who’d prefer the dimension in inches, it measures 6.38 x 2.97 x 0.35 inch.
If you know the current thickness of your phone, you’d also be able to see A92 is not that slim and neither is it thick.
The thickness is rather normal. And as regards the dimension, I don’t consider the phone to be too large to fit into your pocket.
When it comes to mass, I’m going to give the phone a 4-star. In other words, it has an acceptable weight, which means you should have no problem holding the phone for long periods, without issues.
Talking about the colours in which the phone is available in, the phone is available in twilight black, stream white, sky blue, and aurora purple.
You also shouldn’t forget these are the same colours the A72 is available in.
I also appreciate the way the fingerprint scanner of the phone is positioned by the side of the phone.
To put in simpler terms, the side-mounted fingerprint scanner means it’d easier to unlock the phone, since the side of a phone is one of the first places on a phone we make contact with.
It comes with a chipset similar to that of both the A52 and the A72.
And this chipset in question, is an 11 nm process Qualcomm SM6125 Snapdragon 665.
For those don’t know what this chipset has got to offer, you should understand that it comes with eight cores.
However, not all eight cores get to operate at any point in time.
When simple computing tasks are being done, a set of four 1.80 GHz cores, are what get to operate.
However, when you are carrying out computing-intensive tasks, the other four cores are what get to work. And these second set of four cores are rated at 2.00 GHz.
While 1.80 GHz cores are okay for simple tasks, I feel Oppo could have featured 2.20 GHz cores as the phone’s computing-intensive cores.
Furthermore, with the chipset produced with an 11 nm process, be assured this device is quite power-efficient.
While an octa-core process handles the general computing tasks of the phone, the Qualcomm SM6125 Snapdragon 665 comes with a GPU which handles the graphics processing tasks of the phone.
And this GPU, as some of you might have predicted, is the Adreno 610 GPU. The graphics processor is quite good at what it was designed for.
And it’s excellence is the reason why it’s so popular.
Moving on to the aspect of RAM, A92 only comes with 8 GB of RAM.
In other words, you shouldn’t expect builds coming with 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM.
This also means no user of this phone would ever have a reason to complain about the aspect of RAM.
The phone is designed for mid-range smartphone users, and 8 GB is more than enough for such users.
The A92 scores 5/5 in the aspect of the display. Let’s assume it’s a high-end device.
But come on, the display of the phone is very impressive for a mid-range phone.
First and foremost, the way the phone comes with a 6.50-inch display would be highly appreciated by people.
But not only is the display large, the pixel density also happens to be pretty high.
Most mid-range phones come with large displays but low pixel density.
So in short, the company should be given a round of applause for what they did with the display of the A92.
As you would expect, the display is protected by a glass. And the punch-hole design is very cool.
Talking about brightness, you’d have absolutely no problem seeing the contents of a screen having a brightness of 480 nits.
In other words, A92 is not one of those devices you’d have problems seeing the contents of its screen, when outdoor.
When it comes to the aspect of the operating system, it comes with a custom OS based on Android 10 of course.
However, this shouldn’t come as a surprise since most Android phones come with customized Android operating systems.
The phone’s OS is okay. The user experience is okay, and the overall design is quite impressive.
But I’m not going to say the OS is better than a stock Android OS.
Had it been it featured a 256 GB internal storage, it would have really impressive.
There are a good number of mid-range devices coming with 256 GB storage spaces.
In other words, the 128 GB storage is nothing special, even though it’s not a small amount of storage space.
For most people this phone was designed for, there would never be a need for storage expansion.
But for those who need to expand their storage space, for one reason or another, there’s room for this.
You should however note that the whole 128 GB storage of this phone wouldn’t be available to a user of the phone.
The OS, pre-installed apps, and other files on the phone, would take up some of the storage space.
So expect only about 100 GB to be available for your own use.
The cameras of the A92 are one of the reasons behind the phone’s popularity.
The cameras the phone features are the same as those featured in the A72.
The device comes with a total of four rear cameras. But not just any camera, a 48 MP camera, an 8 MP camera, a 2 MP camera, and a 2 MP camera.
As you would expect, the 48 MP camera is the main rear camera, while the other ones are enhancements.
And with the help of these four epic cameras, users of this phone can shoot 1,080p and 2,160p videos.
When it comes to the selfie camera of the phone, I doubt you’d be disappointed, as an enhanced 16 MP camera serves as the rear camera.
I promise you, you’d be blown by pictures taken by this selfie camera, and I don’t think you’d find someone who would say otherwise.
The front camera can also be used to take 1,080 videos, although you can’t compare the quality to those of 1,080 videos taken by the rear cameras.
To conclude this content, the A92 shares the same specs and features as the 8GB version of the Oppo A72.
In other words, the phone is a cool one I’d confidently recommend any mid-range smartphone user.
For the amount that this phone is selling for in Nigeria, I don’t consider it an overpriced product.
