The Oppo A3s, the company claims, is the first Oppo smartphone in the South Asian market that comes with a 13-megapixel and 2-megapixel dual rear camera setup along with an 8-megapixel AI enabled front camera. Oppo says its 'AI Beauty' technology employs a cloud database from premium suppliers that have sufficient power to support diversified facial recognition in smart terminals. It claims that the technology "is like a thinking photographer rather than a rigid software program."
The 6.2-inch display comes with a notch and 88.8 percent screen-to-body ratio.

You just need to connect the smartphones with ColorOS 5.1 or higher version OS to play the same track.
