In April, Oppo released the A57 with 5G connectivity, but now it’s available with the Helio G35 chip for 4G only.
There are several differences between the two variants, and that’s not the only one. The 4G phone comes equipped with a 5000mAh battery that can now deliver up to 33W instead of 10W of power when it comes to charging. The screen refresh rate has been reduced from 90Hz to 60Hz on the 4G model, however. The display still features a 6.56″ LCD with HD+ resolution.
Storage and memory have also gone down. Only 3GB of RAM is included and 64GB of storage is available. The Oppo A57 4G, on the other hand, supports RAM expansion of up to 4GB, which won’t make the slightest difference, and storage expansion of up to 1TB.
Upon closer inspection, you’ll notice a slight difference in the camera island design between the Oppo A57 4G and the 5G model. The Oppo Glow design is also seen on the 4G version.
In addition to the side-mounted fingerprint reader, the Oppo A57 4G features a 13MP primary camera, a 2MP depth sensor, an 8MP selfie camera, a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and an IP54 rating.
A57 4G comes with Glowing Black or Glowing Green colour options in addition to Android 12-based ColorOS 12.1 out of the box.
According to online retailers, the phone is currently available for THB4,999 ($145/€135), but it can be purchased for as low as THB5,499 ($160/€150) if preordered. There is no information about availability in other markets.
