Oppo A53 5G gets official with Dimensity 720 chipset

Vlad, 18 December 2020

Oppo unveiled the A53 5G in China today, and while the name implies that this is just an A53 with 5G support, if the Reno series has taught us anything, is that things are never that simple.

The Oppo A53 5G is powered by MediaTek's Dimensity 720 chipset, which brings that sweet 5G support, but also provides a general performance boost compared to the measly Snapdragon 460 inside both the A53 and the A53s. The 5G model comes with 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of non-expandable storage.

Its screen is a 6.5" 1080x2400 LCD, higher-res than the panels in the non-5G A53/A53s. It has 90 Hz refresh rate and 120 Hz touch sampling rate, full sRGB coverage, and 480-nit typical brightness.

On the rear there's a 16 MP f/2.2 main camera, a 2 MP f/2.4 macro snapper, and a 2 MP depth sensor. The main shooter's resolution is another upgrade. The selfie camera is 8 MP f/2.0.

Weirdly enough the battery capacity is a downgrade from the other A53 models, standing at just 4,040 mAh (compared to 5,000 mAh). Charging is 10W. The phone has a 3.5mm headphone jack, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor (embedded in the power button), as well as dual-SIM support. It runs Android 10 with ColorOS 7.2 on top. It measures 162.2 x 75 x 7.9 mm, and weighs 175g.

It is priced from CNY 1,299, which at the current exchange rates means about $198 or €162. Don't worry, though - if it ever launches outside of China, those prices will definitely grow, as they always do when smartphones make the journey from China to anywhere else.
