OPPO A93 launching in Kenya on 26th October

OPPO has announced plans to bring in the OPPO A93, a successor to a device I really loved, the OPPO A92. The new OPPO A93 will be bringing in improvements to the A92 in different sectors from a new AMOLED display, to a new camera setup. Pre-orders will runs for a week after the launch.

OPPO Kenya’s Head of Communications & Projects Muthoni Wachira said OPPO takes pride in being a brand that has managed to deliver products that speak to the hearts of smartphone consumers, especially millennials. “This is true with our A series segment that focuses on offering trendy technology with every product, giving users not just the tech but an understanding of their style and giving them a sense of belonging.”

The four major features that define the OPPO A93 include:

  • The resolution – which is a 6.43-inch display and 1080 by 2400 pixels screen resolution,
  • The camera – a 48MP camera,
  • RAM, Storage and processor – 8GB RAM equipped with Helio P95 processor, and 128GB UFS 2.1 Storage to give the phone what OPPO describes as maximum performance while in use and also while playing games and
  • The battery – a 4000mAh battery with 18W Fast charging over USB Type-C 2.0.

“OPPO A93 introduces ways to optimize our customers’ phone’s battery life during the day or while they are asleep. We have equipped the device with the AI Night Charging that uses AI Learning through machine learning to understand the user’s sleep habits and charge the phone exactly to 100 percent upon the moment they wake up from their rest,” added Ms. Wachira.

Running on Android 10, ColorOS 7.2, OPPO A93 has an internal storage of 128GB giving the phone maximum storage for files. The phone is small enough to fit in one’s pocket/purse and large enough to fit in one’s palm. It weighs just 164 grams with a glass front and a plastic back.
