OPPO A98 5G Specifications & Price
Oppo announced the launch of the A98 5G smartphone in 2023. The manufacturer is offering the Oppo A98 5G phone with 6.72 inch display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal mobile memory storage.
Smartphones commonly use LCD screens in their displays; however, OLED displays are becoming more common, and are preferred by most smartphone manufacturers. An LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) is a type of flat panel display that uses liquid crystals as its primary form of control.
LCDs are lit with a backlight as pixels are switched on and off electronically while using the liquid crystals to rotate polarized light. Polarizing glass filters are placed in front and behind the pixels, and the front filter is situated at 90 degrees.
LCDs are beginning to be outpaced by other display technologies, but still have a place in the smartphone market. Now, LCDs can be commonly found in budget to mid-tier smartphones- as the OLED is a bit more costly.

LCDs have been being replaced in a lot of flagship smartphones by OLED displays, or organic light-emitting diodes. OLEDs are very flexible in terms of how they can be implemented.
OLEDs use a single glass or plastic panel, compared to LCDs which use two. In addition, an OLED doesn’t need a backlight like an LCD. Because of this, smartphones with an OLED display can be thinner and have much deeper blacks, as each pixel in an OLED display is individually lit.
If a display in an LCD screen is mostly black with only a small portion lit, the whole back panel is still lit, which causes some light leakage on the front of the display.
An OLED screen will avoid this issue, since it lacks the larger backlight. OLED displays also have better contrast and viewing angles with less power consumption, making for a more premium device. With a plastic panel, an OLED display can be bent and folded over itself.
The Oppo A98 5G comes with Android OS v13.0 out of the box, and a Li-Ion 5000 mAh, non-removable battery. The 6.72 inch phone comes with a high resolution IPS display (1080 x 2412 pixels).

Storage, or more specifically, your internal memory, is where your device stores your photos, videos, music, files, installed apps, and system files. Like with the SoC and RAM, storage has also evolved which is mostly evident in its Read/Write speeds.
Most smartphones in the market use eMMC chips but some high-end smartphones now use the faster UFS 2.0, like in the case of the Huawei P10. Performance-wise, a faster storage type allows devices to utilize high-end features like seamless 4K video recording and playback.
MicroSD cards come in different capacities, classes, and speeds. These differences sometimes don’t play well on certain devices, that’s why some device manufacturers opt to remove them in their products like the OnePlus 3T and Xiaomi Mi 6.
But in case microSD cards are supported, make sure that you use a high-speed card (avoid using anything below Class 10) to make sure it does not impede your device’s performance.
