Reports of a new phone called Oppo A53 appeared earlier this week (not to be confused with the five-year-old Oppo A53), and the device suddenly appeared for pre-order on the Indonesian version of Lazada, a popular online retailer in the Southeast. Asia region.
The phone is listed with a full spec sheet, versions and price tag – it will be officially on sale on August 27th for INR2,499,000, which is approximately $ 170 / € 140.
The spec sheet leaked as of Monday is that most specs are correct – we’re looking at a Snapdragon 460 chipset with octa-core CPU, Adreno 610 GPU and 4GB of RAM to keep it company. The storage is 64 GB, but according to Oppo there is a microSD slot for up to 256 gigs more.
The screen is 6.5 ”LCD with an update rate of 90 Hz, HD + resolution and a high 20: 9 ratio. There is a punch hole in the upper left corner where the 16 MP f / 2.0 selfie camera sits. One thing Oppo has not placed on the front (or on the sides) is the fingerprint scanner – it’s on the back, right next to the main camera setup.
Speaking of cameras, we have three snappers in a large black rectangle – the main sensor is 13 MP, along with two more, both of which are 2 MP. While the official list of the Oppo A53 does not say what their job is, we are pretty sure that one is macro-snapper for close-ups, and the other is a depth sensor for better portrait photography.
Every affordable phone should have a large battery, and this one does not disappoint – we are looking at a 5,000 mAh cell with 18W fast charging support through the USB-C 2.0 port.
The phone can be pre-ordered in two colors: Electric Black or Fancy Blue, and the latter has a neat slope that goes from white to dark blue, just like the bottom of the sea.
Lazada are already collecting pre-orders, and shipping is promised for the day after the end of the campaign, which is next Thursday. Oppo Indonesia, in its comments, requested users to purchase the phone before it is out of stock, indicating that there are a limited number of units for the pre-order period and that they may be gone before the official launch.
