Well, it is too early to say but looking at the specs, there are some setbacks with the Oppo A53. Especially, when it is compared to its predecessor.

The choice of using Snapdragon 460 and triple-camera setup could be due to the fact that it is an entry-level smartphone. However, Oppo has managed to make some tweaks and reduce the price on the Oppo A53.
