Realme is currently previewing its new Narzo N53 ahead of its debut as the brand's next Amazon Special in India. The Android smartphone bears a striking resemblance to a flagship iPhone in its new teasers, thanks to a suspiciously familiar camera hump design housing a 50MP main shooter. The N53 also boasts a new "California Sunshine" design with slim edges and a 5,000mAh battery thus far.

The U23 Pro 5G has now been confirmed to launch on the same day as Realme's next new smartphone; however, unfortunately for HTC, the Narzo N53 just might be the better buy of the 2. It will officially join its N55 sibling on later in May 2023, and may have some consumers wishing it were available via other channels from that date.

The N53 sports one of the latest takes on the up-to-date trend for massive individual camera rings, which look the most like those of an iPhone 14 Pro in this iteration. Then again, one of the circles patently contains nothing more than a flash, which leaves the upcoming Narzo-series variant's main 50MP lens with just 1 to-be-determined back-up sensor.

Realme claims to have developed a "Gold Filament Coating" for the N53's rear panel, although it probably refers to the color of its "California Sunshine" finish rather than to its materials. Nevertheless, with a height of just 7.49mm, the smartphone might still win over many consumers as a new ultra-slim device.

Accordingly, if the Narzo N53's display, intriguingly hyped as a "90° bezel" panel, turns out to be FHD+ OLED, the HTC U23 Pro 5G might have a hard time drawing an audience on May 18, 2023. As if to compound this potential rivalry, Realme has also equipped its new 5,000mAh smartphone with 33W charging.
