Yet another mid-range OPPO phone got announced today in the OPPO A53.
OPPO’s affection for the Snapdragon 615/616 is well known by now. The A53 too comes with the Snapdragon 616 and 2GB of RAM, and makes for a strictly mid-range setup.
Full specifications of this new phone include a 5.5-inch display with a 1280 x 720p resolution, an Adreno 405 GPU from the Snapdragon 616, aforementioned 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel Samsung-made ISOCELL rear camera, and a 5 mega-pixel front-facing shooter.
The OPPO A53 has a hybrid SIM slot, which means you can either use it as a dual SIM phone or a single SIM phone with storage expansion. On-board, there is 16GB storage. A satisfactory-sounding 3075mAh battery powers all that was just mentioned… despite which the A53 manages to be just 7.4mm slim.
The A53 runs Android 5.1 atop OPPO’s ColorOS 2.1, and has support for Dirac audio along with 1CC large five speaker sound chamber that is claimed to prevent distortion even in full volume. No word on pricing and/or availability yet!
