We first reported that OPPO Philippines has quietly released the OPPO A52, OPPO A12, and OPPO A12e this month. This, after launching the stunning, more premium OPPO A92 in the country.

Today, the company has shared with us that several of its smartphones are now more affordable than ever, thanks to its #eSchoolwithOPPO back-to-school sale.

The most budget-friendly of them all is the OPPO A5s. The version exclusively offered by Smart Communications — one with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage — now has a suggested retail price of P4,990 (around $101). The variant with 3GB of RAM, on the other hand, costs P5,990 ($121). Both got a P2,000 ($41) discount.

Another A series model, the 8GB/128GB OPPO A9 2020, is currently down to P12,990 ($263). It first became available last year for P15,990 ($324).

Joining the promo are two phones from the Reno lineup. One of them, we already wrote about days ago. We reported that the OPPO Reno 2F got a price markdown once again and is selling for P15,990 ($324) — the same SRP as the A92. It originally went on sale in October 2019 for P19,990 ($405).

The other unit from the series is the higher-specced OPPO Reno 2, which currently goes for P25,990 ($526) from P28,990 ($587) — similar to the Reno 3 Pro‘s SRP in the Philippines.
