The OPPO A83 is finally official in the Philippines, more than a week after we first reported that it’s coming here.
And as we expected because of how it’s trying to disrupt the midrange segment lately, OPPO has aggressively priced the smartphone. The A83 costs only P9,990, or around $196. The move would have been unheard of for the company as early as about a year ago.
We consider the OPPO A83 a part of the F5 series. In fact, we call it the OPPO F5 Lite among ourselves here at Revü. Why? Because it has the same DNA as the ones that belong to the lineup. The phone has a screen with 18:9 aspect ratio and likewise uses A.I. [artificial intelligence] Beauty and Facial Unlock technologies.
So how is the OPPO A83 different from the OPPO F5 Youth, the manufacturer’s most affordable 18:9 smartphone at P12,990 ($255) before the arrival of the former? The major differences lie in the following:
- display: 5.7 inches with 720 x 1,440 resolution (A83) versus 6 inches with 1080 x 2160 resolution (F5 Youth)
- selfie camera: 8 megapixels with f/2.2 aperture versus 16 megapixels with f/2.0 aperture
- fingerprint sensor: none versus rear-mounted
- battery: 3,180mAh versus 3,200mAh
You still get a capable Helio P23 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. It’s still running Android Nougat. And yes, on the back is still a 13-megapixel rear camera. You can check out the full specs of the OPPO A83 by clicking on this.
