Oppo has launched the new selfie Camera smartphone i the India market as expected. The Oppo A57 comes with a 16 Megapixel front facing selfie camera with 1.12 micron lens with f/2.0 aperture.
The Oppo A57 comes with a 13 mega pixel rear camera with fast auto-focus. The design is very similar to the Oppo F1s or Oppo F1 plus and is originally derived from the Apple iPhone 6s.
The smartphone is powered by the new Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz. There is Adreno 505 GPU for graphics intensive tasks and games.
The smartphone comes with 5.2 inch display with HD resolution (1280*720) and has corning gorilla glass 4. There is also a 2.5D glass on top of the screen to improve the aesthetics.
There is a cutting edge fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button which comes with hydrophobic Zirconium coating. The fingerprint scanner works even with wet fingers something I even miss on my flagship Samsung S7.
The Oppo A57 comes with 3 GB of Ram and there is 32 GB storage which can be expanded to 256 GB using a micro-sd card.
The A57 runs on the Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 along with the color OS 3.0. There is Dual sim support and it also has 4G LTE as well as VOLTE connectivity.
The smartphone is quite sleek and comes with 7.65 mm thickness and weighs 147 grams.
There is also a decent battery capacity with 2900 mAH battery which can last all day with good amount of usage.
The Oppo A57 will be available in gold color on e portals like Flipkart and Amazon starting 3rd February. The Oppo A57 is priced at Rs 14,999 which is decent considering the exceptional selfie camera and other specs. Though only advantage most competition smartphones in this price range is the full hd display.
Oppo has been doing great specially in China as the Oppo R9 became the highest selling smartphone with 17 million devices sold last year. They have some catch up to do in India and surge ahead of Xiaomi and Lenovo.
