Oppo has added two new phones to its A57 line, called A57s and A57e, which are similar phones with a few differences.
Let’s talk about the Oppo A57s first. It is powered by the Helio G35 SoC, runs Android 12-based ColorOS 12.1, and comes in a 4GB/64GB memory configuration. However, the RAM expansion allows you to effectively add an additional 4GB of RAM using the mobile phone, and the handset also has a microSD card slot for expansion up to 1TB.
The Oppo A57s is built around a 6.56 “LCD of HD+ resolution. It is protected by Panda Glass and has a notch for the 8MP selfie camera. The first camera – uses a 50MP sensor – placed in the rectangle in the rear with a 2MP monochrome unit and LED flash.
The Oppo A57s is IP54 rated, has an NFC chip onboard, and features a side-mounted fingerprint reader for password-less unlocking. It also comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack, ultra-linear stereo speakers, and Dirac 3.0 audio.
Keeping the whole package up and running is a 5,000 mAh battery charged from a USB-c port up to 33W. If all this sounds familiar, that’s because the Oppo A57s is one of the Oppo A57 4G available in India. The latter sports a 13MP main camera and more memory, but does not come with NFC and stereo speakers.
Oppo A57s comes in Starry Black and Sky Blue colors. It is listed on Oppo’s Croatian website, but there is no word on its price and availability.
We have already said that the A57s and A57e are similar smartphones. Well, the Oppo A57e is basically the A57s having a 13MP primary camera without a speaker or NFC onboard. It also comes with Bluetooth 5.2 instead of 5.3.
You can also call the Oppo A57e version of the A57 4G with Bluetooth 5.2 and a memory option – 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
The Oppo A57e comes in green and black colors and is available in India from Flipkart for INR13,999 ($175/€175). It is not clear why Oppo launched the A57e in India when the A57 4G is still selling at the same price from its official website (even lower on Amazon.in) with the same amount of RAM and let.
