Oppo is working on two new A-series smartphones dubbed as Oppo A73 and Oppo A53. Their existence has been confirmed through NBTC certification. Thailand’s certification authority, NBTC, has recently listed two new Oppo devices with the model number CPH2095 and CPH2127, respectively. Apart from the model numbers, the NBTC listing has also confirmed their monikers. The model CPH2095 will be called Oppo A73, while the model CPH2127 will be known as Oppo A53.
A few days ago, Oppo A73 was spotted on the Geekbench v4 benchmarking platform that reveals it will come with Android 10 OS and 4GB RAM. The device scored 1,484 points in the single-core test and 5,054 points in the multi-core test. We can also see the motherboard code name as “Bengal.” Also, the listing mentions an unknown octa-core processor with a 1.80 GHz base frequency. However, these pieces of information are not sufficient to confirm the chipset name. So, we looked into source codes of the benchmark listing and found the unknown octa-core processor is actually a Snapdragon 662 that comes with a “4 Core @ 2.00 GHz + 4 Core @ 1.80 GHz” configuration and an Adreno 610 GPU.
The Oppo A53 also appeared on the Geekbench v4 benchmarking platform with 4GB RAM and Android 10 operating system. The processor information and motherboard code name are similar to Oppo A73. But, its single-core (1,192 points) and multi-core (4,833 points) scores are low compared to Oppo A53. So, we cross-checked again with the A53’s benchmark listing source codes and found the CPU configuration as “4 Core @ 1.61 GHz + 4 Core @ 1.80 GHz and the GPU as Adreno 610. This configuration only matches Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 460 SoC that was announced earlier this year.
So far, none of the OEMs has announced phones with Snapdragon 662 and Snapdragon 460 chipset. However, Qualcomm confirmed that we will see Snapdragon 662 and 460-powered phones by the end of 2020. So, it looks like Oppo’s upcoming A73 and A53 will soon launch with Snapdragon 662 and 460 SoC, respectively.
The Oppo A53 has also passed FCC certification that shows its schematic diagram of the rear panel. We see a rectangle-shaped camera module with three camera sensors and an LED flash. There is a fingerprint scanner on the rear shell of the device. It measures 163.84mm (length) x 75.09mm (width), and the length of the diagonal is 180.23mm diagonally. So, we may see a display of around 6.5 inches.
The FCC listing has also revealed its battery model BLP805, which comes with a rated capacity of 4890 mAh. To find out the typical battery capacity, we cross-checked the model BLP805 on the TUV Rheinland Japan certification database and found Oppo A53’s typical battery capacity as 5000 mAh.
Separately, we have spotted Oppo A73 and A53 on the CQC certification database that reveals their charging outputs. The Oppo A73 will support 30W fast charging, and the Oppo A53 will ship with an 18W fast charger.
We expect to learn more about these two upcoming A-series phones in the coming week.
