The Oppo A56 price in Malaysia ranges from MYR750 to MYR1,050. This price makes Oppo A56 one of the most affordable 5G smartphones.

In November 2023, Oppo launched Oppo A56 for the first time. The A56 is a mid-range smartphone with 5G connectivity support.

Despite this advanced connectivity feature, the Oppo A56 price in Malaysia is not as high as other 5G smartphones. 

Moreover, the A56 also has some exceptional specs. However, Oppo A56 also has some drawbacks. What are the best traits and drawbacks of this smartphone? Keep reading this review.


Oppo A56 has a simple but elegant design. Its 6.5-inch IPS display has a water drop camera and almost non-existence bezels.

Moreover, its back cover has an elegant glossy finish in violet, black, or blue. Therefore, the A56 doesn’t indicate the cheap Oppo A56 price in Malaysia.

The dimension of Oppo A56 is 163.8 x 75.6 x 8.4 mm. Moreover, this slim smartphone has a 20:9 screen-to-body ratio. Unfortunately, Oppo A56 is a bit heavy. It weighs approximately 189.5 g. 

The A56 smartphone has a dual-camera setup at the back. On its sides, there are volume buttons, a power button with a fingerprint sensor, a USB-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a SIM tray card. Meanwhile, the display at the front comes with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Oppo A56 has an 8MP selfie camera. Due to this low-megapixel, it is no surprise that the photos taken with this selfie camera have average quality. 

Users must take their selfie photos in proper lighting if they want to get better photo quality. In conclusion, Oppo compromises on the A56’s camera to lower the Oppo A56 price and make it an affordable 5G smartphone.
