A new Oppo A-series phone was silently announced today in China. Oppo A56 5G comes as the successor to Oppo’s A55 5G though the specs between the two are virtually identical with the only difference on the new model being one less 2MP cam around the back. The A56 5G also comes with new coats of paint in black, purple and blue shades.
