Yesterday, Oppo launched the Oppo A83 across various online and offline stores in India, featuring the AI Beauty recognition technology. Oppo India was teasing the launch for a while and will be available to purchase starting January 20.
According to the company, the look of its new smartphone is inspired by the Curve Design Philosophy of UFO. It sports a 5.7-inch HD+ LCD display supporting 720 x 1440p resolution and the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio.

Among cameras, the device features a 13 MP rear camera with an LED flash. The highlight of AI Beauty recognition is on the front camera that’s 8 MP with improved selfie attributes. The AI technology is able to ‘classify, recognise, and beautify’ for portrait photos in three aspects: gender, age, and skin color and texture. In the release, the brand said: “AI will intelligently optimize the scene to cleverly integrate the portrait and background as if the photo has been touched up by a professional.”
