Oppo A83: 5.7-inch smartphone with Fullview, Helio P23 and 13MP-8MP camera

Oppo A83 had just been leaked by the international community, and is set to provide something different to the market.

It has been quite some time that Oppo used this kind of numbering system for its smartphone lineup, the last that we can remember was the A77.

Let’s do a quick throwback to the A77:

  • 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 1920 pixels or ~401 ppi pixel density
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Metal body
  • Mediatek MT6750T chipset, Octa-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Mali-T860MP2 graphics and 4GB RAM
  • 13MP primary camera with f/2.2 aperture phase detection autofocus and LED flash
  • 16MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture and 1.12 µm pixel size
  • 64GB internal storage + microSD slot up to 256GB maximum
  • Android Marshmallow 6.0
  • Non-removable Li-Ion 3200 mAh battery
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • June 2017 release date
  • ~$319 USD price tag

If taking selfies is your cup of tea, then Oppo A77 will be able to support you fully with the amazing 16MP selfie camera. Not only that, it also comes with a large screen and beautiful metal body, solid mid-range hardware, 13MP primary camera, great amount of storage and a good battery life to boot. Just that it has a slightly pricey price tag to go with the smartphone.

Now then, where does the A83 put us in the midst of things? Here’s what we learnt so far:

  • 5.7-inch HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 ratio or ~282 ppi density
  • Fullview display
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Mediatek MT6763T Helio P23 chipset, Octa-core 2.5 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Mali-G71 MP2 graphics and 2GB RAM
  • 13MP primary camera with f/2.2 aperture, phase detection autofocus and LED flash
  • 8MP secondary camera
  • 16GB internal storage + microSD slot up to 256GB maximum
  • Android Nougat 7.1
  • Non-removable Li-Ion 3090 mAh battery
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • Q1 2018 expected release date

Although still preliminary, it seems that the A83 is a mixed bag. It will be sporting a slightly larger 5.7-inch IPS screen although there’s only a High Definition resolution. At least, it does have Fullview display to its name.

Under the hood of the A83 will be the Helio P23 chipset, a blazingly fast octa-core processor, good graphics, but will be let down with just 2GB of RAM. All seems well until you find that it will start to lag when performing multitasking on the smartphone.

As for the camera, it will be equipped with just a 13MP-8MP camera combination which barely cuts these days. Pretty average is the right word for it.

Regarding storage, again we find the A83 with just 16GB of internal storage which is just enough to install your favourite apps and some light gaming. Thankfully, there’s the microSD expansion slot that can add another 256GB of space.

With a 3090 mAh battery supplying the necessary juice, it should be enough to power up the A83 for at least a full day of charge.


It is kind of hard to place Oppo A83 in which category, as there’s nothing special about it. Sure it sports a large 5.7-inch IPS screen with Fullview display, but unfortunately, there’s only an HD resolution to its name. Sure it has a mid-range Helio P23 chipset and a fast octa-core processor but is kind of limited with its 2GB RAM. And what is it all about with the 13MP-8MP camera setup?

Oppo A83 is said to be released in Q1 2018 which is still some time away, who knows the specs might change by then? Stay tuned for more updates!
