We don’t write about discounts unless we think they’re something worth considering. This just-announced price drop of the OPPO A83 is one of them.

The 2GB/16GB variant of the OPPO A83, announced just last month, was originally priced at P8,990 (roughly $168). But starting today, you can already buy it for only P6,990 ($131).

It has lower memory configuration than the other A83 models out in the Philippine market, yes. In case you didn’t know, there’s one that has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage and a third that packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native space. They cost P9,990 ($187) and P11,990 ($225), respectively.

However, the markdown is significant because the three units’ mere difference lies in the memory configuration. Everything else is the same. The design is similar. The rest of the specs are the same.

The processor, for one, is still MediaTek’s Helio P23 running at 2.5GHz. It’s the same octa-core chip that powers the OPPO F5 and F5 Youth — from the capable and efficient Helio line. As we said before, thermal performance is above average and frame rates are solid when playing intensive games. Plus, keeping the screen on for stretches of time doesn’t kill the battery quickly.
