Oppo is a brand name that is steadily growing and expanding its base in India. With brilliant specifications in its devices and aided with heavy promotional campaigns, it is soon catching on to the likes of other well established players in the Indian market.
The China-based manufacturer is soon to launch its uber slim device – the 4.85 mm thin Oppo R5 – in India. Touted as one of the world’s slimmest phones (sadly, the title of the slimmest device went to Vivo X5 Max), the Oppo R5 packs quite a punch when it comes to specifications, and although it does not have flagship credentials to its name, it’s got lots of potential.
The Oppo R5 comes with a 5.2 inch AMOLED display with a FHD resolution of 1920×1080.
Under the hood, it comes packed with a Snapdragon 615 Processor – an octa core chipset clocked in at 1.5 GHz. The graphics processor is an impressive Adreno 405.
The phone comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of non-expandable storage.
The main camera is a 13 MP Camera with a slightly protruding lens – thanks to the inbuilt Sony sensor. For all you selfie fanatics out there, the phone comes packed with a 5 MP front facing camera with a wide angle lens.
The R5 comes with ColorOS 2.0, based on Android 4.4 KitKat.
2000 mAH with VOOC rapid charging technology.
FEATURES THAT STAND OUT
The Slim Oppo R5 brings to the table quite a lot of features as far as the overall aesthetics, design and functionality are concerned.
1. LESS HEATING
Generally, slim phones tend to heat up, but the Oppo R5 has been engineered with appropriate materials to dispense the heat effectively.
The R5 comes with a slim profile at 4.85mm, and with an aluminium frame cradled around it, according to Oppo, it has more strength and durability
3. VOOC CHARGING
The superfast charging mechanism, by which – as claimed by Oppo – the phone charges by 75% in half an hour.
EXPECTED PRICING AND LAUNCH DATE
The Slim Oppo R5 is expected to launch by the end of December 2015 and is expected to be priced anywhere between Rs. 25,000 and Rs. 30,000. We’ll keep you all updated!
