Oppo has announced a new smartphone under the A series. This new smartphone is Oppo A38, launched under ₹15,000 price bracket. What’s more, the Oppo A38 looks exactly like its predecessor, the Oppo A58, which launched a month ago on August 8. Some significant features of Oppo A38 are a 90Hz display, 33-watt SUPERVOOC fast charging, a 50-megapixel camera, and much more. Unfortunately, the Oppo A38 doesn’t offer 5G connectivity. However, I am comparing the Oppo A38 with the Realme Narzo 60x 5G below, since the Realme Narzo 60x rolled out on September 6, and it’s priced similarly.
