OPPO A74 5G comes in two brilliant colors including Fluid Black and Fantastic Purple.
Fantastic Purple is designed by both using a dip dye and liquid crystal coating process. This manages to elevate the design with an aurora-like purple color, which when seen from another angle exposes hints of green. Fluid Black uses a dip dye coating process to achieve a smooth black gradient from dark to light akin to an ink smudging in water, but fundamentally conveys a youthful charm.
The look of the phone is accentuated by a Battery Cover Process that uses an elegant 3D Curved Shape and contributes to the comfortable in-hand feel of the phone. While sporting a thinner structure and curved body, OPPO A74 5G weighs only 188g and is 8.42mm thin.

The camera is also designed to fit OPPO A74 5G’s premium aesthetics. Laid out in a L-shaped alignment, the camera bump sits only 1.76 mm higher. The camera module itself is large, but accented by a decorative metal ring around the camera module to reduce the visual thickness and be more lustrous to the eye.
