Oppo keeps churning out phones and the latest is the Oppo A83 model, pictured below. This is a pretty serious leak, that includes a press render, specs and price. We seem to be dealing with a pretty narrow machine, that has an 18:9 aspect and a price below $200.
Priced at $180, this smartphone is a 5.7 incher with a 1440 x 720 pixel resolution and it relies on a MediaTek Helio P23 processor, of the octa core variety. It’s clocked at 2.5 GHz and the device also brings 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, as well as a 3090 mAh battery. It runs on Android 7.1.1 and measures 7.7 mm in thickness, plus weighs 143 grams. The device is going to be available from December 30.
The device’s manual has also leaked in the meantime, confirming a rated capacity of 3090 mAh and typical capacity of 3180 mAh. I find it very odd there’s no fingerprint scanner here, not at the front and also not at the back. Some say that we may get a special face recognition system to replace it, but I wouldn’t bet on that. It’s strange to me to see there’s no Home button, since there’s plenty of room below the screen.
