Oppo has unveiled its latest smartphone, the Oppo A93, in Kenya, as expected.
The smartphone, which is going for Kshs 31,000, is available immediately for purchase through Oppo brand stores and dealers across the country.
The Oppo A93’s local unveiling and subsequent market availability comes about half a year since its predecessor, the Oppo A92, hit the market.
The Oppo A93 is an upgrade to the A92. It comes with several features that are new and some that are improvements over the last version.
On the front, in place of a solo selfie camera, there are now two of them with the added 2-megapixel sensor adding depth to shots taken. At the back, the same quad-camera setup is retained but now in a new design. The same new design also flows over to the back cover which has a matte coating to keep fingerprints at bay, a design the company is calling “Shiny Matte”.
Talking of fingerprints, the Oppo A93’s fingerprint sensor is now in-display, just like Oppo’s Reno series smartphones.
The Oppo A93’s standout feature, as many are likely to notice upon interaction with it, is its thinner profile. The device is noticeably lighter and thinner, a departure from the A92’s design.
“With High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) users can even cast copyrighted HD shows to a big screen from the leading video and entertainment apps including Netflix HD and Amazon Prime Video,” a statement from Oppo Kenya on the launch of the device notes.
