Oppo has launched R5, one of the slimmest smartphones at the moment, at Rs 29,990.
The smartphone that measures 4.85mm in thickness, will be available for pre-booking starting January 1, 2015 onwards. The phone was launched in late-October at $499.
Powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa core 64bit processor, Adreno 405 GPU and 2GB RAM, the phone sports a 5.2-inch full-HD AMOLED display. It comes with 16GB internal storage, which is a negative point because it doesn’t feature a microSD card slot.
The phone sports a 13MP rear camera with Sony Exmor IMX214 BSI sensor and a 5MP front facing camera with 83degree wide angle lens. It runs Color OS 2.0, based on Android 4.4 and has a 2000mAh battery. The phone feature Oppo’s VOOC charging technology to get a 75% charge in 30 minutes.
In terms of connectivity options, the phone features 4G LTE (including Indian 4G bands), 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS.
Oppo R5 also doesn’t feature a 3.5mm audio jack but the company ships a USB-to-3.5mm audio adaptor with the phone.
Oppo claims that the phone’s micro-arc frame is made from higher-strength stainless steel instead of the commonly used aluminium alloy to create a more rugged and durable frame.
The R5 was the world’s slimmest smartphone prior to Vivo’s unveiling of the X5Max, a smartphone that measures just 4.75mm in thickness.
