Back in September, Oppo first unveiled the A33 in Indonesia, as a lower-end sibling of the A53. While the A53 has been official in India for a while, it’s only today that the A33 has joined it in the spotlight in the subcontinent.
The Oppo A33 is definitely an entry-level model, with its Snapdragon 460 chipset, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable storage. It does, however, have a feature that’s usually unseen in this price range: a high refresh rate display. Specifically in this case, it’s a 6.5″ 720×1600 90 Hz LCD panel. The A33 also boasts a 120 Hz touch sampling rate, to make things feel even smoother. That’s obviously a far cry from the 240 Hz of some flagships, but again, consider where this device sits in Oppo’s portfolio.
The A33 has a 5,000 mAh battery with 18W charging, a rear mounted fingerprint sensor, a 13 MP main rear camera aided by a 2 MP depth sensor and a 2 MP macro cam, and an 8 MP selfie snapper sitting pretty in the left-aligned screen hole-punch. The A33 has twin bottom firing speakers, a USB-C port, and it runs Android 10 with ColorOS 7.2 on top.
It will become available in India this month in Moonlight Black and Mint Cream for INR 11,990, which is approximately $162 or €137 at the current exchange rates.
