After closing 2017 with the release of its OPPO F5 Youth (currently priced at P12,990), OPPO Philippines has opened 2018 strongly with the launch of its OPPO A83. The new smartphone is so far the most affordable in its lineup of devices with 18:9 full screen display and A.I Beauty Selfies features—at an initial price tag of just P9,990.
“Our OPPO A83 brings the best value any smartphone user can ever have—at an affordable price,” said OPPO Philippines Public Relations Manager Eason de Guzman. “For less than P10,000, we are confident that the A83 will surely make a mark in the entry-mid range smartphone market.”
In a quick glance, the OPPO A83 is obviously a toned-down version of its immediate predecessor, the F5 Youth, though it has a smaller body measuring 5.7 inches and a body weight of just about 143 grams, making it easier on a user’s grip. The new smartphone is also not shy in facilitating an immersive visual experience.
As a selfie and gaming device
In line with the Selfie Expert handle, the OPPO A83 is equipped with an 8MP front shooter, which facilitates detection of over 200 facial recognition spots. This way, it carries out personalized beautification tasks based on a user’s facial traits and an auto mode A.I. recommended beautification. Consequently, the new selfie device produces natural-looking shots without the need to adjust its camera settings. It even has a 13MP rear camera with LED flash.
As a multi-tasking device, it comes with 3GB of RAM and complemented by a powerful 2.5GHz octa-core processor for superb performance, making it comparable to the popular OPPO F5 series. Thus, it can enable users to enjoy the latest mobile games available with notable fluid capability like Valor, Arena, and more.
Other impressive features
In this model, OPPO seemed to have ditched the traditional fingerprint scanner to favor a newer technology—the Speedy Facial Unlock feature. This enables the OPPO A83 user to quickly access his/her phone in the easiest way possible. Your face instantly becomes a security input that unlocks the smartphone in no time, making it more reliable than the fingerprint scanner and pincode or pattern unlock.
The OPPO A83 is also designed to be energy efficient, thanks to its power saving processor and its non-removable 3,180mAh battery pack. The device’s full-charge power can last up to 13.5 hours of typical use. Battery charging can be completed much faster through its 2A charging compatibility.
The OPPO A83 truly is a worthwhile new smartphone with all the features we need in a very practical cost that does not compromise performance and aesthetics. It is now available in all OPPO concept stores and retail shops nationwide.
