Oppo launched the A53s 5G phone in India on Tuesday at a starting price of Rs 14,990. Technically, this makes it India’s most affordable 5G phone – undercutting the recently launched Realme 8 5G by a very slim margin. Like the Realme 7 5G, the Oppo A53s is also powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chip designed for cheap, entry-level 5G phones.

For photography, the phone has three cameras on the back: a 13MP main sensor with f/2.2 aperture lens, and two 2MP sensors, one for portraits and another for macros.
