Oppo has now released the Oppo A38, over even years after releasing the Oppo A37. Let’s look at what the Oppo has to offer with the A38 and discuss its official price and availability here in Nepal.

Oppo A38 Overview :

Design and Display

The design of Oppo A38 isn’t anything to marvel at. It is pretty basic with a rounded rectangular shape and glossy finish at the back. The frame however seems to have a matte texture. The phone has a pretty noticeable amount of bezels up front along with a somewhat outdated waterdrop notch for the front camera.

On the back, you get a two-camera with an “Innovative AI Camera” written alongside the camera. It weighs about 190 grams and has a dimension of about (163.74 x 75.03 x 8.16) mm.

On the screen side of things, Oppo has given it a “90Hz Sunlight Display”. To clarify, it is a 6.56-inch HD+ (1612×720) LCD panel capable of 720 nits of peak brightness. The phone has a refresh as well as a touch sampling rate of 90Hz. You can, however, lower the refresh rate down to 60Hz too. The screen has a colour gamut of 100% DCI-P3 in vivid mode and is capable of displaying 16.7 million shades. Oppo also claims that the display consumes 14.7% less power.

Other than that, you get an IP54 rating, meaning it can withstand dust and splash with no major issues. Oppo says the phone is capable of giving 300% volume, from which we could say that the phone might feature stereo speakers. It is available in two colour options only: a glittery “Glowing Black” colour and a vibrant “Glowing Gold” colour.
