This is a bit of an odd situation, but it’s not the only one on the modern smartphone scene. In what is technically a “leak”, a still unannounced Oppo A53s can now be found on Amazon DE. The listing includes a basic set of specs, pretty detailed images of the device, as well as a pre-order price of €189 and an official release date of October 13.
In any other case, this would be a very fascinating and satisfying leak. However, as mentioned above, this Oppo A53 appears to be completely identical to the standard Oppo A53, which was launched in India late last month.
Thus, we can conclude that either the official Oppo store on Amazon Germany made a mistake in the stated specs (because the A53s moniker is clearly noticeable in the product images and is less likely to make an error) or actually agreed that the post-maturity timing of the listing would be perfect as the Oppo A53 would actually be named the A53s in Europe. Or at least that of Germany.
For just shy of € 200, the A53s has a 6.5-inch, HD+ fast 90Hz display, a 5,000 mAh battery, which draws power through a USB-C port at up to 18W, a triple main camera setup, consisting of a 13MP primary, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor and a 16MP selfies snapper. At its heart – the Snapdragon 640 chipset, in this specific case, combined with 128 GB of expandable storage.
Oppo A53s Price On Amazon
Unfortunately, for whatever reason, the Amazon list does not contain the amount of RAM in the A53s. If we actually adhere to the possible hypothesis that it’s only the A53, with the “s” at the end, we’re looking at the higher memory level that is currently on sale – 6GB/128 GB for €189. There is also a lower-tier 4GB/64 GB in India, priced at INR12,990 ($175/€150), while the 6GB/128 GB retails for INR15,490 ($210/€175) for Flipkart.
This is a pretty mild EU price hike in our book. Plus, the Amazon list, which will be connected to the source, also currently has a pre-order package. You can get the Fancy Blue A53s with a free pair of OPPO W31 Bluetooth TWS earbuds. Apparently, €77 of extra value on their own, according to their Amazon DE page.
