Announcement. OPPO A58 5G is a cute but trivial smartphone

In China, the announcement of an inexpensive smartphone with support for 5G networks took place. The novelty is called OPPO A58. Cute and even somewhat original appearance. Humane price. Trivial characteristics.

But, by the way, despite the triviality of each ofelements of the apparatus separately, it does not have exact twins. Those. exactly these chipset, battery, screen and cameras are found dozens of times in OPPO/Vivo smartphones. But not exactly in the same combination.

The closest thing to OPPO A58 5G is perhapslittle-known outside of China, the Realme V23i 5G smartphone. He only has a weaker main camera (13 MP), but his appearance is slightly different. Otherwise, the characteristics are the same one to one (including even the location of the buttons and holes).

Realme V23i 5G

The chipset is the super-popular MediaTek Dimensity 700. In AnTuTu, we expect 300-350 thousand points as a standard.

Quite a decent amount of memory. 6 or 8 GB operative, 128 or 256 GB permanent. Plus there is support for memory cards.

We will record the screen as the first weak link. Diagonal 6.56″ (103 cm²), refresh rate slightly increased to 90 Hz. But the resolution is rather low, only 720 × 1612 (269 ppi).

The second weak link is the cameras. Trivial modern set. 8 MP front camera and 50 + 2 MP on the rear side. But the design of the island of cameras turned out to be quite ... original. There's something about it.

But the battery is good. Standard. Capacity - 5000 mAh. Charging is fast, but not obscenely - 33 watts.

Other. There is Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a standard audio output. But the NFC module and the gyroscope are not visible.

The price has so far been announced only for the older ofvarieties 8 + 256 GB. For it, a potential Chinese buyer will have to pay ¥1699 (₽14300, $234). Obviously, the younger versions will be slightly cheaper. But hardly much.
