The world’s second thinnest smartphone, the Oppo R5, has made its way to Europe and the company has started accepting pre-orders. The handset is tagged at €399, making it a high-end option which it certainly is, and can be booked in silver only.
For the price being asked, the Oppo R5 is certainly a sweet buy. Not only is it incredibly slim at 4.85mm, but also high on performance. It flaunts a full metal unibody design which also includes other composite materials. This delivers an industrial look and also offers better thermal efficiency.
The front panel plays host to 5.2-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display with a 5MP wide-angle camera at the top. And on the rear, there’s a 13MP Sony Exmor IMX214 sensor which is one of the best on the market. The extra slimness comes at its costs through.
Firstly, you won’t be getting a 3.5mm audio jack for plugging in headphones. Then there’s the issue of memory as only 16GB of internal storage has been provided. The battery capacity is also pretty low at just 2000mAh. On the upside, you’ll be treated to the new 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor.
