Oppo A53 becomes official in China with metal build, mid-range specs

Tuesday, December 01, 2015

At the beginning of November we spotted a new Oppo smartphone getting certified by TENAA, China's equivalent of the FCC. It was called A53, and we assumed it would get official soon after that. And now it has been listed on Oppo's Chinese website.

The A53 is a mid-range handset - like most of what Oppo has produced recently. The company has focused a lot on such offerings lately, for whatever reason.

Perhaps the main claim to fame for the Oppo A53 is its metal build. It also comes with 2.5D curved glass on the front.

Spec-wise, we're looking at a 5.5-inch 720p touchscreen, a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 5 MP selfie snapper, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 616 SoC at the helm (with a 1.5 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, 4G LTE, dual-SIM functionality, and a 3,075 mAh battery. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop underneath Oppo's own Color OS 2.1 layer.

Pricing information hasn't been outed yet, nor has an actual release date for this model. And it's unclear if Oppo plans on offering it to markets outside of China as well.
