Oppo claims that the face identification feature can recognize the user by scanning 128 facial features and then unlock the smartphone in just 0.18 seconds. The AI Beauty recognition technology makes it possible to snap beautified selfie shots through the 8-megapixel front-facing camera of the OPPO A83. A 13-megapixel camera is present on the back panel of the phone.
