We had lots of content yesterday for the new king of thin phones around, Oppo R5. Oppo launched this handset alongside Oppo N3 during company’s press event in Singapore. The device itself looks rather great, it sports and extremely thing body (just 4.85mm) along with the metal frame build. Its camera is sticking on the back a bit, but that’s what you have to deal with when you get such a thin phone. Oppo R5 is actually thinner than the Gionee Elife S5.1, which held the title of the thinnest phone around thus far. We did cover this phone’s launch and everything connected to it yesterday and now we bring you a lot more images of the device itself, courtesy of Sina. If you take a look at the gallery down below you’ll notice a ton of images showing the device from multiple angles so that you can get a good look at it. The device even gets compared to the iPhone 6 in these images, Oppo R5 actually resembles the iPhone 6 in a way. Anyhow, if you’re interested in checking that out, take a look at the gallery below the article.
Oppo R5 is sporting a 5.2-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) AMOLED display, which is smaller than the N3’s, but the resolution is same and R5’s display has a higher ppi, of course. Oppo managed to pack 2GB of RAM into this device as well as 16GB of internal storage. The handset is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 SoC, a 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 2.1GHz. On the back of the device, you’ll be able to find a 13-megapixel camera which sports Sony’s Exmor IMX214 sensor (f2.0 aperture) while there’s a 5-megapixel shooter on the front of the device. This handset also sports VOOC rapid charging like the Oppo Find 7 and Oppo N3, which should provide crazy fast charging times to its 2000mAh battery, should take it from 0 to 75% in less than half an hour. 2000mAh located inside this device is far from being a big battery, especially if we consider the 5.2-inch 1080p display which is sucking battery life, it’s going to be interesting to see battery tests on this device. 148.9 x 74.5 x 4.85mm are Oppo N3’s measurements and the device weighs 155 grams. Oppo R5 will be available for 2999 Yuan ($490) in China in the coming months.
