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

An inexpensive smartphone with support for 5G networks was announced in China. 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 of the elements 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 the OPPO A58 5G is probably the little-known Realme V23i 5G outside of China. He has� only the main camera is weaker (13 MP), but the appearance is slightly different. Otherwise, the characteristics are the same (including even the location of the buttons and holes).

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

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

The screen will be recorded as the first weak link. Diagonal 6.56 "(103 cm²), refresh rate slightly increased to 90 Hz. But the resolution is a bit low, only 720x1612(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 is something in it.

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

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 variant 8+256 GB. For her potential Chinesethe buyer will have to pay ¥1699 (₽14300, $234). Obviously, the younger versions will be slightly cheaper. But hardly much.
