Price Drop: OPPO A83 2018 is now only P6,990

Launched last January 2018 with a P9,990 price tag, the gaming-ready and long battery life OPPO A83 is now only P6,990. The OPPO A83 comes in red, gold, black and you can also get it through Home Credit so you can pay as low as P699 per month for 10 months.

The A83 boasts of a stellar budget package: a bright 5.7-inch HD+ screen, a 13MP rear camera, an 8MP selfie camera with A.I. Beauty Recognition, fast face unlock. And as we wrote before, the A83 remains the “lowest priced 18:9 display midrange phone with a 2.5GHz 64-bit Helio P23 octa-core processor plus a Mali-G71MP2 GPU. That tandem means the A83 can run games, such as Arena of Valor, fluidly in an immersive 18:9 display.”
