OPPO has announced two budget smartphones: the A53 and A53s. The A53 comes with a screen with a high refresh rate, a large battery and fast charging for an accessible price.
OPPO has announced two budget devices on the Dutch market out of nowhere. The OPPO A53 stands out primarily for its display. It comes with a 6.5 inch LCD screen that can enjoy a higher refresh rate for nicer animations. The panel also has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The smart automatic brightness ensures that the brightness is correct on the basis of artificial intelligence that learns the preferences of the user.
Furthermore, we discover that OPPO uses the Snapdragon 460 from Qualcomm, which is a processor for the low price segment with a 1.8 GHz clock speed. The Chinese manufacturer combines the chipset with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. To optimize cache memory, OPPO introduces its first RAM + Memory Optimization feature that improves system performance.
Battery and camera
The phone also has a spacious 5000 mAh battery that works with an 18-watt fast charger that you plug into the USB-C port. OPPO’s smartphone works with the ColorOS 7.2 software based on Android 10. The phone also has a pair of dual speakers. There is a fingerprint scanner on the back.
If we look at the cameras, we find three sensors on the back. The main one is the 13MP main camera with its f / 2.2 aperture, but there is also a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth camera. At the front is a 16 Mp selfie camera in a small camera notch on the left.
In addition to the A53, a cheaper version has also been announced. The A53s works with a 6.5-inch HD screen that has a normal 60 Hz refresh rate, but it does come with the Gorilla Glass 3 protection. This phone comes with the same chipset and 4 GB of RAM, but it has a generous 128 GB of storage. Finally, there is the same battery and fast charger and it also takes over the camera from the A53. The A53s does have a simpler 8 MP selfie camera.
The OPPO A53 is available in Electric Black and Mint Cream colors. The OPPO A53s is available in Electric Black and Fancy Blue colors. Both phones are available immediately via MediaMarkt, Coolblue, Mobiel, OPPO E-Store and soon via Ben, Belsimpel, Bol.com, and HollandsNieuwe.
