Announcement. New OPPO A53 on the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 460

OPPO already had a smartphone called A53. Five years ago. Was somewhere there. It seems that he never made it to our country, Aliexpress, or Europe.

Unfortunately, there are very few letters in the alphabet. There are even fewer numbers. So we meet the new OPPO A53, which, of course, is not a bit like its namesake.

The new OPPO A53 is presented so far only inIndonesia. The price at the start of sales is 2,499,000 Indonesian rupees, which is approximately equal to ₽12,500 ($ 169). The A53 is interesting because it is the world's first smartphone based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 chipset.

Snapdragon 460 is the heir to the chipsetSnapdragon 450, 2017, about 90,000 AnTuTu points - at that time a very decent chipset, solid budget or even lower average. In terms of characteristics, the Snapdragon 460 is very similar to last year's Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 - the same GPU, similar, but slightly weaker cores, well, etc.

Snapdragon 460, like Snapdragon 450, toofocused on fairly inexpensive devices. There are not enough statistics on AnTuTu, I found only one video - there the device scored 123152 parrots. Not impressive, to be honest. Obviously, not by parrots alone. But immediately the suspicion begins to arise that the price of a smartphone is slightly overpriced.

Memory. The only option. 4 GB of operational LPDDR4X, 64 GB of constant UFS 2.1. Support for memory cards (separate slot).

Screen. Large, with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, but the resolution is not high. 6.5 ″, IPS-matrix with a hole for the front camera, 720 × 1600 pixels (270 ppi).

The battery is fine, the battery is large. 5000 mAh, and even with 18W fast charging.

For cameras, as usual, you need to wait for the first reviews. But the megapixel count is suspiciously low. 16MP front, 13 + 2 + 2MP rear. So the cameras are probably pretty basic.

No NFC support, USB Type-C. What kind of Wi-Fi is not specified. Most likely dual band Wi-Fi 5 (ac).

There is no information about the possibility of the appearance of OPPO A53 outside Indonesia.
