Say hello to OPPO‘s latest smartphones! The global technology brand has rolled out the red carpet for the newest additions to its A Series, following the launch of the OPPO A77s and OPPO A17k in the Philippines.

Both devices offer attractive and trendy designs to go along with big batteries, side-mounted fingerprint readers, and reasonably sized LCDs with waterdrop cutouts housing their selfie cameras. They likewise offer generous RAM and storage options for a worry-free user experience. The pricier and more premium OPPO A77s, though, takes things up a notch not only in terms of aesthetics but also with regard to the day-to-day performance and audio-visual package.

OPPO A77s: Retro design, modern comforts

The higher-end model of the two, the OPPO A77s is designed for users who are after an affordable smartphone that doesn’t compromise on both design and performance fronts. It’s actually one of the most visually striking choices you’ll find at this price point, thanks to its gorgeous and distinct finishes in two colorways.

The Sunset Orange variant, in particular, sports a unique fiberglass-leather-feel rear panel, offering a classic look and soft feel. The Starry Black version, on the other hand, features the company’s shimmering, sparkling Glow design that is wear- and scratch-resistant. The black and orange variants come in at just 7.99mm and 8.04mm at the thickest point, respectively, and pair their flat backs with rectangular frames. The OPPO A77s also comes with a 50-megapixel main camera that can shoot 108-megapixel images in Extra HD mode, alongside a dedicated 2-megapixel sensor for natural-looking, DSLR-like portrait shots with smooth background blur.

This A Series phone is powered by an efficient 6nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chipset and charges using OPPO’s 33W SUPERVOOC standard, which can juice up the device to 50% in less than half an hour. A quick 10-minute charge should give you enough battery power for three hours of video playback. The 5,000mAh battery, meanwhile, is rated for up to two days with normal usage.

As for the audio-visual package, OPPO’s latest A Series release comes equipped with a 6.56-inch IPS-LCD screen with full DCI-P3 coverage and a 90Hz refresh rate, to deliver a better viewing experience and smoother gameplay. The OPPO A77s has dual stereo speakers complemented by OPPO’s Ultra Volume Mode, which is said to enhance the max output of the speakers by up to 44%, amplifying the sound and making them more audible. This allows you to play games without the use of headphones, even if you do end up blocking one of the speaker grills during gaming.

OPPO A17k: Back to the beautiful basics

Then there’s the OPPO A17k, OPPO’s newest entry-level handset and one of the most visually appealing choices you’ll find in this price category. The OPPO A17k arrives with IPX4 water resistance, meaning it can withstand sweat, light rain, or splashes of liquid. This makes the smartphone a good, straightforward option for users who live in tropical regions. In addition, OPPO has equipped the OPPO A17k with a responsive side fingerprint sensor for quick unlocking.

For pictures and video, you get a single 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel unit for selfies up front. You can likewise enjoy long battery stamina in between charges, courtesy of the OPPO A17k’s 5,000mAh battery and power-efficient MediaTek Helio G35 processor. The chipset is paired with 3GB of RAM, expandable up to 4GB via RAM extension, to ensure fluid performance when running resource-intensive apps. Switching between background apps and several Chrome tabs should feel smooth as well.
