Oppo India has announced its slimmest smartphone, the R5, will be launching in India this month.
Announcing a price range of Rs. 25,000 - Rs. 30,000, the Oppo R5 has been confirmed to hit market shelves in the country in December. We can expect the company to announce the final price of the R5 at its India launch.
At just 4.85mm thick, the Oppo R5 is one of the 'slimmest smartphones' launched globally. Notably, Vivo's flagship X5Max launched on Wednesday is now currently the 'slimmest smartphone' with a thickness of 4.75mm - it is set to launch in India on Monday.
The company back in October launched the Oppo R5 at $499 (approximately Rs. 30,500). The smartphone features metallic and ceramic finishes at the corners.
The Oppo R5 features a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) AMOLED display that offers a pixel density of 423ppi. The R5 is powered by a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 (MSM8939) processor (2.1GHz quad-core + 1.5GHz quad-core) alongside with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 405.
It sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX214 sensor; an f/2.0 aperture, and a LED flash. There is a 5-megapixel front-facing camera also onboard. Running the company's proprietary ColorOS 2.0.1 (based on Android 4.4 KitKat), it supports a single Micro-SIM and comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage which is non-expandable.
There is 2000mAh battery onboard, and the smartphone supports VOOC charging technology that is said to charge the battery from 0 to 75 percent in around 30 minutes. Connectivity options on the smartphone include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPRS/ EDGE, TD LTE, LTE FDD, and Micro-USB. Notably, there is no 3.5mm audio jack onboard, and customers will have to use the bundled Micro-USB to 3.5mm audio jack adapter, or the wireless O-Music accessory.
The Oppo R5 measures 148.9x74.5x4.85mm and weighs 155 grams.
