Oppo is expected to launch a new smartphone dubbed as the Oppo A83 in the coming days. The device is expected to be launched in the Chinese market on May 5, 2018, and will boast similar specifications to the Oppo F7 that launched in India a few days back. The device will be priced at 1999 Yuan (approx. Rs 20,670) in China which is also pretty much similar to that of Oppo F7’s price in India of Rs 21,990. The Oppo A83 will succeed the last year’s model and will feature the notched display, MediaTek processor and Android 8.1 Oreo-based custom UI on top. These specifications were obtained from the Oppo A83 manual leak, so these could be the final ones.
The Oppo A83 2018 version will flaunt a 6.2-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 2280×1080 pixels because it will have the notch on top. The phone will be powered by a MediaTek MTK6771 chipset with a clock speed of 2.0GHz. The chipset will be mated to 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There could be other variants as well with higher RAM and low memory on board. Oppo might release the smartphone in a 4GB RAM+64GB storage option, 4GB RAM+128GB storage and 6GB RAM+ 128GB storage.
The device will have a 16MP camera at the back and an 8MP camera on the front. The manual leak says that the device measures 159grams and 7.8mm in thickness. Out of the box, the Oppo A83 will run ColorOS based on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. The device will be fuelled by a 3400mAh battery. As per the listing by SlashLeaks, the device will be launched on May 5, 2018.
Oppo might not launch this smartphone in the Indian market since most of the specifications of the Oppo A83 are similar to the Oppo F7 smartphone. The Oppo F7, which was launched in India late in the month of March has a 6.2-inch notched display, MediaTek Helio P60 processor, up to 6GB of RAM & 128GB of internal storage, single cameras on the front and back but the front has a bigger 25MP shooter and a 3400mAh battery backs the entire package.
