Oppo A53s has been launched in India as the cheapest 5G phone in India. With a price tag of 14,990, the Oppo A53s undercuts the Realme 8 5G which was launched in India a few days back by a small margin. 

While there is no sign of commercial availability of the 5G network in India, smartphone makers have jumped to the 5G train and especially in the budget segment, we keep getting 5G phones at prices that are better than the previously cheapest 5G phone. First, it was Realme with its Realme X7, Realme Narzo 30 Pro, and Realme 8 5G, now Oppo has joined the bandwagon with the launch of Oppo A53s in India. 

Let's have a look at the specs and features of the Oppo A53s.
