OPPO A57 smartphone was released in February 2017 in Kenya.
The smartphone, comes with a 5.2-inch display. That, is coupled with a display resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It is a quality display when compared to similar android phones.
When it comes to design, I consider the OPPO A57 a premium device. At only 7.65 inches, this can be considered a thin phone. Also, the mobile device weighs only 147 grams.
The A57, comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. In it, you find an Octa Core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, an Adreno GPU, and 3GB of RAM. This ensures that the phone performance when it comes to handling “heavy” games and apps.
When it comes to storage, you get 32GB of inbuilt memory. In addition, you can expand this to a maximum of 256GB using a memory card.
In the camera department, you get 13MP for the rear facing one. And in the selfie front facing camera is a 16MP lens. We have seen OPPO, continuously putting more emphasis in the front facing camera as also seen in the recently released OPPO F3 in Kenya. If interested, you can take a look at the OPPO F3 or the price list of the phones in Nairobi.
OPPO A57 price is about KSh. 22,000 in Kenya.
