OPPO has officially unveiled its new A57 smartphone in China. The A57 is one of the few smartphones that has been unveiled this year by OPPO. The phone resembles most of the mid-range smartphone available in the market, in terms of specs, however, the highlight of the handset tends to be its 16MP selfie camera.
Jacketed with metal, the OPPO A57 comes with a 5.2-inch HD display, complemented by a 2.5D curved glass. Underneath, the phone houses a Snapdragon 435 octa-core chipset bearing a clock speed of 1.4GHz and Adreno 505 GPU. Memory wise, the phone is backed up with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which is expandable.
The OPPO A57 boasts a 13MP primary camera at the back with f/2.2 lens, PDAF, and LED flash, while the front one is taken care by an impressive 16MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and 1.12nm pixels — an appropriate companion for vibrant selfies and video calls.
The whole phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow on top of Color OS 3.0 and packs a 2,900mAh battery inside. The LTE-capable phone also comes with a fingerprint scanner embedded on the home button. The phone will be made available later in December for 1,599 Yuan or $231 in China. OPPO, however, hasn’t mentioned anything about its availability outside of China.
