OPPO A54 launches in India with a 5,000mAh battery and triple cameras

OPPO is launching a new budget-friendly smartphone in India today. Dubbed the OPPO A54, the new model takes the reigns from the last year’s OPPO A53 to lead the battle of budget phones. As far as raw specifications are concerned, the OPPO A54 stands no chance against the likes of the Redmi Note 10 and Realme 8. But OPPO’s strong grip on the offline market and a massive marketing budget should mean the new device will not simply disappear into oblivion despite packing lesser powerful hardware.

Although the OPPO A54 is a successor to the A53 on paper, there’s hardly anything new here. It does assume an upgraded design with a new squarish camera module and a side-mounting fingerprint scanner, but the hardware is more or less the same. On the front, you get a 6.51-inch LCD HD+ (1600 x 720) display. But unlike its predecessor, which had a 90Hz panel, the panel here has the standard 60Hz refresh rate. Powering the phone is the MediaTek Helio P35 octa-core chip (A53 used a Snapdragon 460 chip), paired with 4GB/6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage.

OPPO A54 front and back

On the back, you get the same triple camera setup, headlined by a 13MP f/2.2 primary shooter and flanked by two 2MP depth and macro shooters. The front 13MP selfie camera is also unchanged.

Elsewhere, the OPPO A54 comes with a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support, a side-mounted fingerprint reader, Bluetooth 5.0, dual-band Wi-Fi, USB Type C port, and ColorOS 7.2 based on Android.

Pricing & Availability

The OPPO A54 comes in three colors: Crystal Black, Starry Blue, and Moonlight Gold. It will go on sale from April 20 at a starting price of ₹13,490 (~$180) for the base model. Meanwhile, the 4GB/128GB and 6GB/128GB models are priced at ₹14,990 (~$200) and ₹15,990 (~$215), respectively. The phone will be available from Flipkart and offline retail partners.
