OPPO is not only premium devices like the Find X3 series, but it embraces all price ranges. In an attempt to bring 5G connectivity to the masses and democratize it as much as possible, the brand has just launched the cheapest smartphone ever to support fifth generation networks in the peninsula on the Indian market: OPPO A53s 5G.
The name indicates that it is a variant of the A53s also marketed in Italy, and it actually shares many technical specifications with the latter. However, the aesthetics change quite evidently, with a more eye-catching camera module, a drop notch instead of the punch hole, and a fingerprint reader positioned on the side instead of on the back.
OPPO A53s has a 6,5-inch IPS display with HD + resolution and 20: 9 format. Inside we no longer find the Snapdragon 460 processor, but a more powerful one MediaTek Dimensity 700 with 5G support combined with 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory expandable with micro SD. The device mounts a triple rear camera from 13 + 2 + 2 Megapixel with macro sensor and depth lens, as well as a battery from 5000 mAh without fast charging. The operating system is Android 11 with ColorOS 11.1 to customize it, and there is an audio jack.
OPPO A53s 5G was marketed in India in Crystal Blue and Ink Blue colors with a price of just 166 € at the current exchange rate for the basic version from 6/128 GB, which rises to about 189 euros for the 8/128 GB version. Sales of the cheapest 5G smartphone ever launched in India they will start on May 2nd, while there is no news about a possible launch in other countries.
