The new Oppo A53 that went on pre-orders in Indonesia last week has arrived in India. The smartphone's powered by the Snapdragon 460 SoC and comes in two memory configurations - 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB. It also comes with a dedicated microSD card slot, which allows storage expansion by up to 256GB.
The Oppo A53 packs a 6.5" HD+ display that has a refresh rate of 90Hz - a first for a smartphone with a panel of this resolution. The screen has a punch hole in the upper-left corner for the 16MP selfie camera.
The back of the phone, which flaunts a 3D Iridescent Wave Design, is home to a fingerprint reader having a triple camera setup on its left, which is a combination of a 13MP primary, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor units.
Under the hood, the Oppo A53 has a 5,000 mAh battery, which draws power through a USB-C port at up to 18W. On the software front, the A53 boots Android 10 with ColorOS 7.2 on top, and comes with a feature called RAM+ Anti-Lag, which Oppo claims uses a "PC-grade, cutting-edge technology" to reduce lag time whenever you open or run an app.
The A53 also features a stereo speaker system with Dirac's audio optimizations.
The Oppo A53 is offered in Fairy White, Electric Black, and Fancy Blue colors. The 4GB/64GB variant is priced at INR12,990 ($175/€150), whereas the 6GB/128GB model will set you back by INR15,490 ($210/€175). Both models are available for purchase in India through Flipkart.
