OPPO begins the A57-series with a 5G model that has good CPU but weak camera setup


OPPO have just introduced the A57 5G smartphone in China. The entry-level 5G device, which is obviously the first smartphone in the A57-series is adorned with Dimensity 810 CPU from MediaTek, but slightly let down by a weak camera setup.


Talking about camera, the OPPO A57 5G has two lenses on the rear; a 13-megapixel main shooter with F/2.2, and a 2-megapixel depth lens with F2.4 aperture, along with an LED flash. On the front, the model is given an 8-megapixel selfie lens with F/2.0 aperture.


The Dimensity 810 CPU is backed by either 6/8GB RAM, and a 128-Gigs of internal storage. The most interesting part of the phone is the presence of Google Android 12, with OPPO’s ColorOS 12.1.

The phone itself is fitted with a 6.56-inches HD+ dot-screen. It has a sided fingerprint scanner, while a 5000mAh battery is built into the phone’s 7.99mm body.
