Oppo has been leading the selfie bandwagon in India along with other Chinese manufacturers like Vivo and Gionee. With smartphones like F1s, Oppo has carved a niche for itself in the segment for the selfie-centric market. This time around, the Chinese maker has announced yet another selfie-centric smartphone called the Oppo A57. Priced at Rs 14,990, the smartphone aims at catering to the underserved market of selfie focussed phones. Oppo had launched the A57 in China last November.
The Oppo A57 comes equipped with a 5.2-inch HD display along with 2.5D curved glass display. Powering the device is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. On the storage front, the device offers 32GB of internal memory which can be further expanded up to 256GB via the microSD card slot.
Camera setup on the Oppo A57 includes a 16-Megapixel selfie/front facing camera that comes with LED flash. The primary camera is made up of the 13-Megapixel sensor along with f/2.2 aperture, PDAF and LED flash. The camera app offers new hand gesture and Bokeh effect for offsetting the subject of the photo with a rather blurry background.
