OPPO A83’s 18:9 screen has plenty of bezels to go around

OPPO A83’s 18:9 screen has plenty of bezels to go around

Most of the time, when you hear “18:9 screen” these days, you usually associate it with bezel-less designs like those on the LG V30, the Galaxy S8, and the iPhone X. While that may be true, it isn’t always the case. Take, for example, the OPPO A83 that has popped up on TENAA. It does have an 18:9 screen, though HD+ only, but it is still shown to have some rather noticeable bezels at the sides, especially with the white model.

Samsung, Oppo and Huawei are making foldable phones: report

Following the launch of the sleek and eye-catching ZTE Axon M, a smartphone with two full-size screens, industry sources have showed up to claim that Samsung, Oppo and Huawei have all kicked off dedicated steps to launch their own similar models, possibly ushering in an age of phones with two screens instead of one. Oppo recently patented a dual-screen phone design, and Samsung has been teasing such a device for years.

OPPO folding phone patent shows bizarre bendable selfie camera

OPPO folding phone patent shows bizarre bendable selfie camera

OPPO has patented a folding smartphone, but not the kind you'd expect. Whereas the ZTE Axon M has two full-size folding displays that come together like book pages, OPPO's newly patented device uses a flexible screen for different reason: making a bendy, ultra-flexible selfie camera. As the patent illustrations show, the phone has a hinge running horizontally about an inch below the top edge of the phone.

OPPO F5 debuts with everything but bezels

OPPO F5 debuts with everything but bezels

The very recent OPPO R11s sighting might have preempted it, but there is still one thing the OPPO F5 has over it: availability. Unlike the R11s, which is still set to be officially announced next week, the OPPO F5 is now official and, starting Friday, will be available in select markets like the Philippines. Other than that, however, it might be difficult to easily distinguish between these two OPPO flagships, given their similar 18:9 screens and 20 megapixel selfie cameras.

OPPO R11s at Tmall shows mid-range 18:9 phone, comes in red

The 18:9 fullscreen phone has quickly become the hallmark of high-end smartphones, but not for long. Thanks to manufacturing improvements and the determination of some smartphone makers, that premium-looking design has also become available on less premium smartphones. The OPPO R11s, which is set to be announced next week, is one shining example, bringing that 18:9 nearly bezel-less design down to the mid-range.

Best phone camera of 2017 : Seek out PDAF

Best phone camera of 2017 : Seek out PDAF

Today we're going to take a look at what it means to buy a smartphone with a camera "that just takes good pictures." You know, the sort of phone that just lets you snap a picture and it won't be blurry. I'm here to tell you that this phone does exist, but that actually snapping a reasonably sharp photo is not quite as simple as just pointing and shooting.

OPPO R11 Review: playing with the big boys

OPPO R11 Review: playing with the big boys

While Xiaomi has the lion's share of the Chinese market and fellow Chinese OEM OnePlus making waves in the international scene, OPPO remains undoubted and produces a steady stream of smartphones every year. A stream that, in all honesty, has accumulated into a rushing river that threatens to flood the smartphone market with nearly indistinguishable devices. Save for a few standouts, like the recently launched F3 and F3 Plus, OPPO's smartphone nearly look identical not just with each other but with other brands as well. With the OPPO R11, however, the company seems to be ready to break out of that mold. While still not exactly premium smartphone material, the OPPO R11 takes a step forward in joining the big leagues.

OPPO F3 breaks cover with dual selfie cameras

OPPO F3 breaks cover with dual selfie cameras

No, you aren't experiencing deja vu. Some Chinese OEMs seem to have a rather strange pattern these days. ZTE launched its nubia Z17 mini and has yet to launch the nubia Z17. Now OPPO is launching the F3, just weeks after it launched the OPPO F3 Plus. You can't fault OPPO for wanting to saturate the market with its self-proclaimed selfie experts. You can, however, fault it for launching something that has very little to offer over the F3 Plus.

OPPO F3 Plus Review

OPPO F3 Plus Review

These days, if your smartphone doesn't have defining special feature or selling point, it's going to be forgotten amidst a sea of smartphones whose designs and specs are starting to all look alike. And it isn't enough anymore to have a wallet-friendly price only. OEMs need to offer more. Some boast screens with almost no bezels. Others flaunt dual cameras. The OPPO F3 Plus, which was just announced last week, sort of mixes all those, but with a different twist. Yes, it has dual cameras, but it puts those on the front, making sure you get the perfect selfie, whether by yourself or with others. But how does that promise measure up in practice? We take a long hard look to find out.

OPPO F3 Plus tries to be twice the selfie expert

OPPO F3 Plus tries to be twice the selfie expert

OPPO has apparently found its calling in the sometimes hated, sometimes loved market of selfies. Each major smartphone it releases is touted as a "selfie expert" and, to some extent, that does end up being true. The OPPO F3 Plus is no different, at least not in trying to claim the title. It is, however, different in that it has twice as much selfie expertise. And by that, we mean that it does have two front-facing cameras. But not all cameras are created equal, and neither are the OPPO F3 Plus'.

OPPO F3 Plus leaked specs show a two front cameras

OPPO has always prided itself as a selfie expert, or at least its OPPO F1s was advertised as such. Following that tradition, rumors have its next flagship models, the OPPO F3 and F3 Plus, bearing dual front cameras for better selfies and all other awesome effects. While we’re left to wonder where the OPPO F2 went, a new leak appeared detailing most of the specs of the OPPO F3 Plus, revealing not just two front cameras but an almost familiar mix of specs as well.
