You can see the full specifications here, however, the resemblance of Oppo A93and the Oppo Reno 4 is strikingly similar. From design to its mass and location of ports are all similar. The only difference being the location of the processor and the camera set-up.
Moreover, the body is 7.48mm thin and weighs only 164g. The phone also introduces the thin 220° Edge which offers a comfortable smoother in-hand feel, a first of its kind. According to Oppo Kenya, the company has utilized an “industry-leading design” to optimize and fit the mainboard, battery, and other components into its slim design.
On what might be a first, the Oppo A93 brings an 18W fast charging in addition to what it calls the AI Night charging the company says uses artificial intelligence to learn user’s sleep habits and to charge the phone to 80%, hold it, and then top it up when the user is about to wake up. This sounds good. This of course is to saves battery life. There is also super-power saving that turns display black and white and can help you push the last 5% battery on your phone for a while.
The Oppo A93 features an AMOLED panel which is a departure from the usual IPS LCD panel. This makes the device thinner which the company says the device boasts of a 90.7% screen-to-body ratio and has the smallest dual punch-hole camera diameter at just 3.7mm. Also to note is that the fingerprint scanner is under the display. Lastly, there’s a Mediatek Helio P95 chipset, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. The air gestures from the RENO 4 are also here. Since we have the device in for review, you can expect an unbiased review in the next few weeks.
