Realme Narzo N53 is confirmed to launch in India next week. The model has been officially teased by the company previously, and a promotional page also went live on the Amazon microsite on Wednesday. Now, Realme has announced that the phone being teased is indeed the rumoured Narzo N53. It is claimed to be the "slimmest Realme smartphone ever." The phone is touted to be a surprise "entry-level redefiner" offering by the company as part of its five-year anniversary celebrations. Previously, Realme unveiled a new Rainforest colour variant for its Realme C55, for the same occasion.
The upcoming Realme Narzo N53 will arrive with a thickness of 7.49mm - which in comparison to most other Realme and other competing handsets, is extremely slim. The phone is confirmed to launch in the country at 12 PM IST on May 18. This will be the second Narzo N-series phone to release in India. The first was the Realme Narzo N55, which was introduced to the market earlier this year in April.
