OPPO recently announced the 4G version of its budget 5G smartphone, the OPPO A58. The new variant comes with significant changes such as a bigger and improved display, but at the cost of a lower refresh rate. Additionally, the chipset has also been replaced.

Let’s take a look at the specifications of this device. It has a 6.72-inch FullHD+ IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20:9, and it covers 100% of DCI-P3 and sRGB. However, the display refresh rate is 60Hz, which is lower than the 90Hz of the 5G version. The screen also has a typical brightness of 550 nits and a maximum brightness of 680 nits.
