OPPO has announced entry of another selfie focused Smartphone the OPPO A57 in the Kenyan Market, aiming to bring users a flagship-level 16 MP front camera, a lightning-fast solid-state fingerprint reader, a long-lasting battery, and OPPO’s meticulous design.

This comes after making headlines last year with it’s ‘’Selfie Expert’’ the F-series which featured a 16 megapixel front camera and a 13 megapixel rear camera with an advanced beautify mode.                                                          

Sky Li, OPPO VP and Managing Director of International Mobile Business say the initiative has been widely accepted by the members of the public and the OPPO A57 will be serving the mid-range budget segment as well as the high-end customers looking for highly sophisticated gadgets.


“When we saw the demand for the great 16 MP Selfie camera on the F1s, we set out to bring that experience to an even wider range of users.”

“The A57 brings consumers premium photography and advanced features, like the industry-leading fingerprint reader, that go well beyond the conventional boundaries for this price segment.” He added.


The OPPO A57 sports a 16 MP flagship-level front camera – a signature feature that appeared first in OPPO’s F series devices, propelling them to become OPPO’s most popular devices ever.

The camera also comes up with a New Beautify 4.0 which will help capture users’ best looks, while Screen Flash and an f/2.0 aperture will ensure bright, vivid shots even in low-light and back-lit conditions. Meanwhile, new bokeh effect and gesture-activated shutter features add a new dimension to the photography experience offsetting the subject of the photo with a blurry background.


It also upgrades OPPO’s signature palm shutter function for taking selfies. All you have to do to snap a selfie is either open your hand in front of the screen, or flash a peace sign, leaving you free to get your shot just right and avoid the shake caused by pressing the shutter button. You can also activate the camera by simply saying “cheese!”


The device is based on Android 6.0, ColorOS 3.0 which makes it seamlessly responsive, providing a smooth, steady and lightweight experience that optimizes power use and keeps users cruising through the day.

Even in its attractively slight 5.2-inch unibody, the A57 manages to pack a powerful 2900 mAh battery, giving the device just the right weight in the hand and offering excellent video playback time. It clocks in at 11 hours of continuous video watching, 23 hours on the phone, or about 13.5 hours in a scenario of varied continued use.
