Seen for the first time in a smartphone, OPPO A93 introduces a thin 220º Edge that also offers a more comfortable and smoother in-hand feel. OPPO A93’s rounded edge design, which refracts light at the top of the rounded point to accentuate its thin appearance and accentuates the comfortable in-hand feel makes all this possible.
To ensure that users are fully immersed in their content, OPPO A93’s 6.43’’ dual punch-hole display comes with a brilliant FHD+ Super AMOLED Display with a large 90.7% screen-to-body ratio.
The display uses Mini Dual-Punch Holes that boast this price segment’s smallest camera diameter of only 3.7mm, and ensures that that the phone screen’s real estate is maximized so that you’re fully enjoying your video game and can see every detail in your shot.
OPPO A93 also introduces Shiny Matte, which sees the return of the shimmers and brilliant streaks of light that users enjoyed with the last A Series phone. But with OPPO A93, the design has been updated with not only a premium feel that’s soft to the touch and easy on the eyes, but is now also fingerprint resistant.
Shiny Matte uses a brand-new optical coating technique that increases the coating’s depth from 250 nanometers to 400 nanometers, which accentuates the light’s refraction, while enhancing the colors. OPPO A93 will come with the Shiny Matte texture in three colors.
Magic Blue showcases a unique blend of blue and purple colors that appear to reflect a new color with every angle. Matte Black is a color that screams prestige and is inspired by high-end automobiles.
Metallic White offers a refreshing white color that in certain angles will permeate shades of pink.
