OPPO A53 5G price, specifications, and availability details have been announced as the smartphone goes official in China. The company has introduced the handset as the 5G variant of the OPPO A53 4G (review) that was launched in India back in August. OPPO A53 5G specs remain pretty much the same as the 4G variant, though the Snapdragon 460 chipset has been replaced with the MediaTek Dimensity 720 SoC. OPPO has also reduced the battery capacity on the A53 5G to 4,040mAh from 5,000mAh, which comes as a surprise as 5G phones tend to consume more battery.

The phone will be available for sale in China from December 21st. There is no word yet on the OPPO A53 5G launch in India.
