After launching its flagship smartphone Oppo F7 in India, the China-based company has now launched a new entry-level smartphone in the Indian market. Oppo has launched Oppo A83 (2018), which is an upgraded version of the Oppo A83 launched in January.
Just like its predecessor, the smartphone comes with a metal unibody design. It features a 5.7-inch Full View HD+ display with screen resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it is powered by MediaTek MT6763T (Helio P23) octa-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz along with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Its predecessor packs 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
Coming to the camera department, the smartphone comes with an 8-megapixel selfie camera at the front with support for AI beautification technology which we’ve earlier seen on company’s more expensive devices. There’s also a 13-megapixel rear camera which also supports artificial intelligence technology for beautification effect. According to the company, its AI technology captures more than 200 facial points when a photo is taken and then uses its own data to refine features and compose the face contour.
The smartphone comes with a facial recognition feature which can be used to unlock the device. Connectivity options include Bluetooth v4.2, Micro-USB port, GPS/ A-GPS, Wi-Fi and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Sensors on board include an accelerometer, an ambient light sensor, and a proximity sensor.
It runs on the old Android 7.1 Nougat operating system out of the box with the company’s own ColorOS 3.2 on top. The smartphone is powered by a 3,180mAh battery.
The Oppo A83 (2018) is now available for purchase in India for a price of Rs. 15,990, which roughly converts to $241. It is available in Blue and Gold colors through online stores like Flipkart, Amazon, Paytm Mall as well as via offline stores.
