Oppo R5 'Slim Smartphone' Now Up for Pre-Orders in India at Rs. 29,990
Oppo's slimmest smartphone, the Oppo R5, is now up for pre-orders in India, priced at Rs. 29,990.

The Oppo R5 is available for pre-bookings at physical stores from Thursday until January 15. The company as a promotional offer is also offering a back pack with every pre-booking of the R5 smartphone. Oppo in a tweet on Wednesday confirmed the details.

At just 4.85mm thick, the Oppo R5 was the 'slimmest smartphone in the world' until the recent launch of Vivo X5Max, which is just 4.75mm thick.

The company back in October launched the Oppo R5 at $499. 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.


Oppo R5 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX214 sensor; 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.
