The A53 has a metal body covering run-of-the-mill mid-range specs.
Oppo announced the A33 late last month, and it has now unveiled the A53, which is basically a larger version of A33 with slightly better hardware specs. The A53’s specialty is its metallic body, and the large 3,075 mAh battery providing the power to drive the 5.5-inch Full HD display.
The processor under the hood is an otca-core Snapdragon 615 clocked at 1.5GHz, accompanied by 2GB of RAM. The primary camera is a 13-megapixel sensor, and there’s a 5-megapixel camera on the front for selfies. Other specs include 16GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, and 4G LTE connectivity. The A53 has a hybrid SIM slot, which means users will have to make do without expandable storage if they wish to use the device has a dual SIM phone.
The Oppo A53 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with the company’s ColorOS 2.1 UX. Oppo hasn’t announced pricing or availability information yet, but it’s likely the A53 will only be available in China initially before making it to other markets.
