Design and display
The Realme Narzo N53 has a beautiful design on the back. It has two colour options, feather black and feather gold. The gold variant showcases a sleek, striped textured pattern, while the black variant features a grainy textured design, giving it a distinctive appearance. The back of the device resembles the camera setup of the iPhone 14 Pro, with a layout of three cameras. The camera module is enclosed in a glossy box, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of it’s design.
On the front, it has a water drop-notch placement for the selfie camera, which also works as the base for the mini-capsule display same as the dynamic island display on the iPhone 14 Pro series.
The Realme Narzo N53 features a 6.74-inch IPS LCD display with a refresh rate of 90Hz. It offers a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and a pixel density of approximately 390 ppi. It has an 85.5 per cent screen-to-body ratio with a peak brightness of 450 nits, which is good enough.
Performance and storage
The Realme Narzo N53 is powered by the Unisoc Tiger T612 chipset, built on the 12nm architecture. Its octa-core CPU consists of two Cortex-A75 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores also clocked at 1.8 GHz. It has the Mali-G57 GPU to handle the graphics. It runs in the Realme UI T operating system based on Android 13.
It is available in two storage options; 4 GB and 6 GB. The 6 GB option has a dynamic RAM feature, which allows you to virtually increase the RAM up to 12GB.
The Realme Narzo N53 offers two storage options: the 4GB RAM variant comes with 64GB of internal storage, while the 6GB RAM variant provides 128GB of internal storage. Additionally, users have the flexibility to expand the storage further using a MicroSD card, thanks to the dedicated slot available in the SIM tray.
The Narzo N53 camera is very similar to iPhone 14 Pro series. With three camera rings, it is a dual-setup camera and the third ring has a flash in it. A pretty clever idea indeed.
