Form and function work in harmony in the OPPO A96 thanks to the OPPO Glow Design and rigorous testing standards
Art and technology are often considered entirely separate, but the two intersect in the creation of a phone. The OPPO A96 uses OPPO Glow Design for a dynamic finish inspired by the entrancing swirling patterns of the cosmos. It twinkles and glints as the phone is turned, evoking the patina of supernova stars millions of light-years from our home.
The OPPO A96’s color-shifting shell is matched with great everyday IPX4 water and IP5X dust resistance, and excellent general toughness. It is a phone with an appearance to admire, but also one with enduring quality that passes through rigorous quality testing.
OPPO Glow Design
OPPO Glow Design is a crucial part of the OPPO A96. It creates a bright and eye-catching finish that glints like a million of shimmering stars when it catches the light, resembling a sparkling vision of the cosmos.
Choose the Starry Black OPPO A96 for this hint of intergalactic charm. It shifts from a low-key minimalist look to a shining show-stopper with a twist of your wrist. The Pearl Pink offers a completely different visual personality. It’s a refreshing pastel tone that, when brought to life by the OPPO Glow Design, reminds of cherry blossom leaves dancing in the wind.
OPPO Glow Design involves a complex and dedicated manufacturing process that starts with a diamond-cut glass mold. This contains the many thousand crystalline structures that give the OPPO A96 its characteristic dynamic spark. Take a microscope to the phone and you may be able to make out the pattern of triangles and pyramids, like a tiny shining world that fits in the palm of your hand.
Months were spent designing hundreds of prototype molds, only the finest of which was chosen. If it is too thick, the visual effect is enhanced but risks being uncomfortable to hold. A thin crystal will feel smooth but loses the signature OPPO Glow Design effect. Balance is the key.
The final glass masterwork was then employed to create plastic molds used for mass production of the OPPO A96. The mold is placed in a 99.9% vacuum and then injected with a liquid coating, which forms the back of the phone. A unique vacuum pressing machine presses a pattern film on the back cover to create the pattern and avoid bubbles and imperfections from forming in the outermost layer of the cover, for the smoothest finish and a perfectly flat surface. It is what creates the phone’s color gradients and beautiful metallic look.
Carefully controlled temperatures during the curing and coating process are required throughout to maximize toughness and scratch resistance, because appearance is only one part of the puzzle. OPPO spent six months perfecting the process.
OPPO Enduring Quality
The OPPO A96 has been through more than 130 ultra-rigorous reliability tests, for harsh conditions including ultra-low and high temperatures, shock tests, drops, radiation and wireless interference. It has also been tested for 14 days of use in a high temperature of 65 degrees centigrade, 95% humidity environment.
In addition, the OPPO A96’s headphone socket is tested for insertion and removal 10,000 times, its USB charging port 20,000 times.
Volume buttons are pressed 150,000 times to ensure longevity, the power button an eye-opening 500,000 times. That is nearly equivalent to pressing the power button 100 times a day for almost 14 years.
This commitment to long-term user experience extends across the entire phone. Each OPPO A96 offers the water and dust resistance to let you feel confident with the phone in your hand, because a little rain should not slow you down.
Such ruggedization requires the use of carefully designed internal seals, a blueprint rigorously tested before the first OPPO A96 was boxed and sent off the production line.
You can rest assured that whether you decide to go on an adventure holiday to Thailand during the monsoon season, or plan on shooting photographs in the Grand Canyon, this is a phone on which you can surely rely. The technology in your pocket should help you preserve all unforgettable moments, not hold you back.
The OPPO A96 can keep pace with your busy life, while elevating your style with stunning OPPO Glow Design. These are just the start of its remarkable features too, which include OPPO’s Dual Speakers, a 90Hz Colour-Rich Punch-Hole Display with the Adaptive Refresh Rate Technology and the feature-packed ColorOS 11.1 software.
The OPPO A96 is offered at the recommended retail price of RM1,299. For more information about OPPO A96, please visit https://www.oppo.com/my/smartphones/series-a/a96/.
