Oppo, the landmark in selfie-shooting smartphones, has announced another mid-range device with camera being the primary focus; it is Oppo A77. The new smartphone has appeared on Oppo’s Taiwanese website and offered for pre-orders today.

If we closely look into the specs sheet and compare it with that of F3, the A77 seems to be a true copy of the F3 except for couple of things – A77 comes with a single camera instead of the dual cameras as seen on the F3 and the outdated Android Marshmallow OS.

Features

Like most Oppo phones, the A77 sports an all metal body with antenna lines at the back on the top and the bottom of the phone. The front houses the fingerprint sensor, the capacitive buttons and the front camera.

As for the display, it features a 5.5″ 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution IPS LCD screen. Pixel density for this screen clocks in at just above 400 PPI (pixels per inch).

Like other mid-range devices available in the market, the Oppo A77 features an octa-core Cortex A53 chipset, Mediatek MT6750T SoC. It houses 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. A77 is a dual SIM phone by default and uses a hybrid SIM/MicroSD card slot.

OS is unfortunately Android 6.0 Marshmallow which is getting a little considering Android O is on the horizon. Oppo will include their proprietary Color OS skin on top.

The primary camera uses a smaller f/2.2 13 MP sensor in terms of pixel count. It features an LED flash and Phase Detection Autofocus. Up front there is a bigger f/2.0 16 MP shooter with portrait and beauty mode.

Powering the A77 is a 3,200 mAh battery unit which should be adequate for a day’s usage.

Price and Availability

The A77 has been offered for pre-orders in Taiwan with the price tag of NTD 10,990 (~PKR 38,500) in Gold and Rose Gold colours. The availability to other parts of the world is not revealed at the moment.
