Oppo A79

Oppo has launched the much-awaited Oppo A79 with advanced features in China. The main attraction of Oppo A79 is the integration of a full-screen OLED display coupled with 18:9 aspect ratio. Moreover, the device ships with facial recognition technology, which enables you to unlock the phone in a secured manner. The advantage is that only the user will be able to unlock and work with the device.


The Oppo A79 is equipped with a 6-inch OLED FHD+ display with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels. The aspect ratio of the display is 18:9 and bears a very high screen to body ratio. The main reason for the high ratio is attributed to the trimming of the top and bottom bezels.
