Oppo's slimmest smartphone, the Oppo R5
, which went up for pre-orders
in India on January 1, is now available to purchase via major retail stores across the country at Rs. 29,990.
With a thickness of a mere 4.85mm, the Oppo R5 was the 'slimmest smartphone in the world' until the recent launch of Vivo X5Max
, which is just 4.75mm thick
. The smartphone features metallic and ceramic finishes at the corners.
R5 sports a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) AMOLED display that offers a pixel density of 423ppi. It 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.
The R5 features 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.
Earlier this week, Oppo launched two new smartphones, the Oppo Mirror 3
and the Oppo R1C
, in Vietnam
respectively. Details of availability in other markets has not yet been revealed.
