After a huge success of Oppo N1 because of its Revolutionary Rotating Camera, the company is back with its new smartphone. Today, at an event in Singapore, Oppo unveiled its extraordinarily thin smartphone Oppo R5. The phone is 4.85 millimeters in thickness and with a tag of being the World’s Thinnest Phone, it catches everyone’s eyes and also took over Gionee party.
Oppo R5 has a 5.2-inch full HD display of 1080 x 1980 pixels with a pixel density of 423 pixels-per-inch with an AMOLED panel. The phone comes with Color OS 2 Android 4.4 (KitKat) with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. To make the processing fast and fluid, Oppo has powered it with Snapdragon 615 Octa-core 2.1GHz Processor and Adreno 405 GPU along with it.
To maintain its slim size and shape, the company has compromised with its battery. Oppo R5 comes with a 2000 mAh Non-Removable battery and supports VOOC mini rapid charging (charging 70% of battery in just 30 minutes). Oppo R5 doesn’t has an external memory card slot so you will have to adjust with the limited Storage given in the smartphone.
Oppo R5 has a 13 MP rear camera with Sony Exmor IMX214 sensor and Schneider lens. It is quite impressive that Oppo R5 can capture images upto 50 MP and comes with a photo stitching feature. Moreover, the rear camera can record 4K video at 30 fps which is pretty good. The phone has a 5 MP front camera with 80 degree wide angle lens which is quite decent for trending style of selfies.
In terms of looks, Oppo R5 has regular capacitive touch buttons at the bottom and Oppo has used resin and aluminium with other composite material which prevents the phone from absorbing any heat and improving the thermal efficiency. The phone has a silvery look on the edges and a decent design and structure.
Oppo R5 is expected to cost in the range of 30,000 or more. With its distinct features, it fits well in there. It is rumoured to be roll out in markets in the beginning of December. But the company has not yet confirmed its launch date officially, but we will let you know of the confirmation dates in our future posts.
