Chinese device maker OPPO has launched the OPPO R5 in India at Rs 29,990, which will be available for pre-order from January 1, 2015.
Commenting on the launch, Tom Lu, CEO, Oppo India said,
“This phone has been developed with the end user in mind. We used cutting edge manufacturing techniques to create a phone that fits perfectly into the users’ hands, and that feels incredible. The frame has been forged nine times and then finished by hand to give a perfect sheen and feel. It has a quality that is not available anywhere else in the industry. The R5, like the rest of the R series delivers a truly stylish, exquisite and distinctive design and will continue to delight our customers with its innovative yet practical functions.”
At just 4.85mm thick, the Oppo R5 is the ‘slimmest smartphone’ launched in India. Notably, Vivo’s flagship X5Max launched earlier this month is now currently the ‘slimmest smartphone’ in the world with a thickness of 4.75mm.
The Oppo R5 features a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080×1920 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 148.9×74.5×4.85mm and weighs 155 grams.[signoff predefined=”Enjoy this?” icon=”users”][/signoff]
