Oppo A53s 5G is launching in India on April 27, the company has confirmed. In a teaser shared with the media, the Oppo A53s 5G is confirmed to be powered by the MTK700 i.e., the MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC. It is teased to be ‘big on memory, high on speed' hinting at large storage and RAM options on the phone. The Oppo A53s 5G will likely be an offshoot of the Oppo A53 5G that was launched in December in China.
The company has teased that the Oppo A53s 5G will be priced under the Rs. 15,000 price point, making it an affordable offering with 5G connectivity. The phone will launch on April 27 at 12pm (noon) and be made available on Flipkart with the e-commerce giant teasing its arrival through a dedicated microsite. The Oppo A53s 5G is seen to have a blue gradient finish at the back, but it will be made available in other colour finishes as well.
The Oppo A53s 5G is teased to support 5G connectivity and be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC. The phone features a triple camera setup at the back with flash support inside a rectangular camera module placed on the top left corner or the glossy back panel. The teaser poster also reveals that the Oppo A53s 5G will have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner on board.
Apart from this, nothing else is known about the handset as of yet. Oppo is likely to release a few more teasers ahead of the launch event, giving us more details on specifications and features. The Oppo A53s 5G is looking to be very different than the Oppo A53 5G launched in China last December. The Oppo A53 5G had a different back camera module design and was powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 720 SoC.
