Oppo A83 (2018) overview
The look of the Oppo A83 2018 is inspired by UFOs (UFO Curve Design Philosophy). The streamlined design of the flying saucer is incorporated for a more solid edge, with subtle yet sturdy arcs that make the phone look more dynamic. Its homogeneous look, along with its pearlescent and sparkling finish is a perfect blend of technology and fashion.
