March 5, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Oppo has unveiled two handsets back in October, Oppo N3 and Oppo R5. The Oppo N3 has been announced as the company’s flagship handset, while the Oppo R5 is the mid-ranger which sports an extremely thin body and a nice design overall. Oppo R5 is only 4.85mm thick, and it was the thinnest smartphone in the world back when it was announced. That is not the case any longer, but it is still one of the thinnest handsets around. Anyhow, we managed to get some hands-on time with this handset at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona, if you’re interested in checking out those images, take a look at the gallery down below.

The Oppo R5 sports a 5.2-inch full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080) AMOLED display with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 on top of it, along with 2GB of RAM for all your multitasking needs and 16GB of non-expandable built-in storage. The device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615, a 64-bit octa-core SoC clocked at 2.1GHz which comes with an Adreno 405 GPU for graphics. On the back of the device, you’ll find a 13-megapixel camera (Sony’s IMX214 sensor, f2.0 aperture) which is flanked by an LED flash. The 5-megapixel shooter is located at the front side of the device and it offers an 80-degree wide angle lens. The device ships with 2,000mAh battery, Android 4.4 KitKat comes pre-installed on this handset with Oppo’s ColorOS 2.0 on top of it. Oppo R5 measures 148.9 x 74.5 x 4.85mm while it weighs 155 grams. This handset also offers 4G LTE connectivity, in case you were wondering, and it is made out of metal.
