Oppo A77 Selfie Smartphone – 16 MP Selfie Camera
The Oppo A77 has good specifications on paper. It has a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and 401 PPI (pixels per inch). It also has a 2.5D curved glass and an unspecified version of Gorilla Glass technology protecting it.
