OPPO has fielded three phones with full screen display since the last quarter of 2017. The OPPO F5 was the first to be introduced, and was followed by the F5 Youth a month later. Then just in time for the holiday season, the special edition OPPO F5 6GB Limited Edition Red was also released. These phones are priced between P10,000 to P16,000 while the price tag of the 6GB Limited Edition Red is a little over P20,000. While the F5 and F5 Youth are packed with features with good prices, some customers may find it a bit high for their budget. This is where the OPPO A83 comes in.
The OPPO A83 is now the most affordable phone locally with 18:9 Full Screen display, A.I. Beauty Selfies, Facial Unlock, powerful processor performance, and outstanding battery life of up to 13.5hrs. It also carries the A.I. Beauty Technology with an 8MP front camera that can detect more than 200 facial recognition spots for a more personalized beautification based on your facial traits. This results to natural-looking selfies without the hassle of adjusting camera settings. It even features an auto mode for A.I. recommended beautification.
Just like the F5 series, the A83 uses a 2.5GHz Octa-Core Processor which is capable of playing the latest games in the market.
“Our OPPO A83 brings the best value any smartphone user can ever have – at an affordable price of Php9,990, the A83 offers the latest 18:9 Full Screen, a powerful processor, facial unlock, and the famous A.I. Beauty Technology for natural-looking selfies. For less than ten thousand pesos, we are confident that the A83 will surely make a mark in the entry-mid range smartphone market”, said Eason de Guzman, OPPO Philippines’ Public Relations Manager.
