In April, OPPO launched the OPPO A57 5G, which builds Mediatek’s Dimensity 810 SoC to support 5G networks, and is now rolling out 4G versions with Mediatek’s Helio G35 chip in markets such as Thailand.
iGeekphone has learned that the chip is not the only difference between the two models. The 4G model also comes with a 5,000mah battery, which increases the charging speed from 10W to 33W, but reduces the screen refresh rate from 90Hz to 60Hz, although it still has a 6.56in LCD screen with 720p+ resolution.
In addition, there are changes in memory and storage, with the 4G version only having 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, supporting up to 4GB of RAM expansion and up to 1TB of storage expansion.
At first glance, OPPO A57 4G looks the same as the 5G version, but a closer look reveals a slightly different design for the rear lens portion. The 4G version also features an OPPO Glow design.
OPPO A57 4G features a side fingerprint, a 13MP main camera and a 2MP depth sensor on the rear, an 8MP camera on the front, usB-C, 3.5mm headphone jack, IP54 rating and Dirac 3.0 certification. ColorOS 12.1 comes pre-loaded with Android 12 and is available in two colors.
The smartphone is currently priced at 5,499 baht in Thailand, but can be pre-ordered for as little as 4,999 baht through online retailers, and it is unclear whether it will be available in other markets.
