After launching the F19 series in India last month, Oppo has expanded its A series of smartphones in the country by launching the 5G A53s today. It follows the Oppo A53, which the company launched in India in August 2020, and sits just below the high-end Oppo A74 5G that was recently launched in India.
So before we go into pricing and availability details, let’s take a look at some of the device’s key specs and features, shall we?

Starting with the design, the Oppo A53s 5G has a similar design to its predecessor. However, the punched hole design on the A74 5G has been replaced by a waterdrop notch here. On the front, it has a 6.5-inch HD + LCD screen with a 1600 x 720p resolution, a standard 60Hz refresh rate, and up to 480 nits of brightness.
Under the hood, the device packs the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset. It’s paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There is a massive 5,000 mAh battery that also supports 10 W charging on board. Furthermore, the Oppo A53s 5G comes with 5G connectivity for cellular networks, dual SIM card slot, dual-band Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 5.1 support.
As for the optics, the Oppo A53s features a triple camera setup. This includes a 13MP primary sensor and a pair of 2MP sensors to capture macro shots and depth information. Additionally, there is an 8MP selfie snapper housed in the waterdrop notch on the front.
