Oppo continues to expand its A-series collection as they’ve introduced an update to the A93 device, the A93s. The Oppo A93s 5G smartphone share so many similarities with its predecessor, however, one major difference between both devices is the chipset, as the new phone is powered by a Dimensity 700.
The A93 smartphone is built around a 6.5″ LCD with a 90Hz refresh rate and Full HD+ resolution. a pill-shaped cutout for the 16MP selfie cam and 2MP depth module. There’s also a built-in fingerprint scanner. On the back, you get a 48MP main camera alongside 2MP depth and macro units just as the Oppo A93 5G, but the design has changed a bit and now the shooters are in L-formation with the LED flash sitting underneath.
There is one camera behind a punch hole in the left corner, and that’s an 8MP snapper with an f/2.0 lens in front of it. The A93s allows up to 18W charging speed for a battery capacity of 5,000 mAh.
The device is currently offered with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage with other specs including Android 11 with ColorOS 11 on top, dual 5G standby and all the latest Bluetooth and Wi-Fi standards. Colour options are Black, Blue, and White, and the price is set at CNY1,999. The first sale is scheduled for July 30.
