Oppo A38 Specifications in Kenya

Oppo A38 has a 6.56” LCD with HD+ resolution, up to 90 Hz refresh rate, and a 90 Hz touch sampling rate. There is also a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera with a 5 MP sensor behind. Two cameras are on the back, but only the main one is useful. It is 50 MP with f/1.8 aperture and autofocus. The second one is a 2 MP depth sensor. The chipset is Mediatek Helio G85, and the phone has 4 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. The micro-SD slot enables up to 1 TB of extra storage.

Oppo equipped the A38 with a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 33W SuperVOOC charging and basic PD (9V/1.5A). The Oppo A38 will get updates for 2.5 years, which is a good thing, given that this phone is on the more affordable end of the price spectrum. The dual SIM capabilities, a 3.5 mm audio jack, the latest Bluetooth 5.3, and all major GNSS standards are other features. The Oppo A38 is arriving in two Glowing colours – Black and Gold, but we have no information on pricing or availability.


Build and Design of Oppo A38

Oppo’s glow design makes its handsets stand out. Oppo A38’s glittering high-end textures draw every eye to your phone whenever you take it out. Choose the glowing Gold for a flash of sunlight and shimmering halos.

It is built to last, with a body made of a plastic body frame and back and glass front. Being IP54 rated, the phone is dust and splash-resistant. With good care, it will last many years before the need for replacement.

Dimension-wise, the device measures 163.7 x 75 x 8.2 mm and weighs 190g. reasonably, it is comfortable to hold and use with one hand and carry in the pocket. At 190g, you will feel its weight slightly, but you will get used to it.


The handset features a large, water-drop, 6.56-inch IPS LCD, 90Hz, 720 nits (peak).  The 720 x 1612 pixels, 20:9 ratio (~269 ppi density) is a bit of a let-down to an otherwise great mid-range phone if you are running on a tight budget.
