Oppo’s A53s and A15 land on South African shores

Oppo may have only recently arrived in South Africa, but the marque is wasting no time in setting up shop – and now the company has flighted two new devices into local markets in the form of the A53s and A15, which will become available on November 7th.

Alphabet-soup names aside, both devices are making a push into Huawei’s territory and come equipped with fully-fledged Google Mobile Services with Android 10 in tow.

The A53s arrives with a 6.5″ display with up to a 120Hz touch samping rate, in addition to 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. A 5,000mAh battery provides it stamina, while the real selling feature is a triple-camera setup with a 13-megapixel wide, a 2-megapixel macro, and a 2-megapixel depth camera. Rear-mounted fingerprint scanners and a USB Type-C port round out the package.

The A15 has a similar AI-powered triple-lens setup with the same components, though the handset features a slimmer 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a 4,230mAh battery.

The A15 supports a 6.4″ display with an 89% screen-to-body ratio and comes equipped with a microUSB port.

Locally, the Oppo A53s will retail for R4,999 ZAR, while the A15 will set consumers back R2,999. The devices will be available from Vodacom in addition to Foschini, 4u, Chaz, Game, and Cellucity.
