Oppo seem to be on a launch spree. After the Oppo R7s Plus and Oppo A33 yet another device dubbed the A33 has now passed TENAA certification.
Apparently an alleged device called the Oppo A53m was also seen passing the 3C certification a week back. However it is yet to make an appearance at TENAA. The Oppo A53 which clear TENAA just now comes with a mid-range specification. In fact these are similar to the one seen on the previously launched Oppo R7 Lite.
The Oppo A53 comes with a 5.5" HD (1280x720p) display upfront along with a 5MP front facing camera. Under the hood is a 64bit enabled 1.5GHz octa core Snapdragon 615 SoC and an Adreno 405 GPU. This is complimented by a 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Oppo is also providing an option for memory expansion via MicroSD card (upto 128GB).
On the back of the Oppo A53 is a 13MP camera which is equipped with a single LED Flash. Apparently the back of the Oppo A53 looks rather similar to the Oppo R7 Lite. However unlike the R7 Lite which comes with a 5" display, the A53 falls in the phablet category.
The Oppo A53 is about 8.3mm thick and weighs up at 165 grams. The device further supports 4G LTE connectivity and will be available in two color variants - silver and gold. With the device having been passed through TENAA now, expect Oppo to launch the A53 pretty soon. However it is not clear yet whether Oppo will be bringing this device beyond Chinese shores.
