The Oppo A83 is powered by a MediaTek 6763T processor clocked at 2.5Ghz coupled with 3GB RAM. On the battery front, Oppo A83 has a 3180 mAh battery and it runs Android 7.1 Nougat
Where camera goes, Oppo A83 has 13MP one on the back with LED flash. The front camera is 8MP and the smartphone comes with AI technology for better selfies, says Oppo. Oppo says its “AI Beauty Recognition” technology employs a cloud database from premium suppliers to power facial recognition features and help improve the selfies.
It claims the “AI can learn automatically once it has amassed enough imaging data” and “classify, recognise and beautify the portrait in three aspects which are skin colour and texture, gender, and age.” The technology captures more than 200 facial points when a user takes a selfie, which is then used to refine the features and make the photo look much better, claims the company. The phone also has a Face Unlocking feature and no regular fingerprint scanner. Oppo A83 has a 3180 mAh battery, along with support for a microSD slot with 256GB limit. Oppo A83 will come in two colour options: Black and a champagne gold.
