Oppo R5s adds more memory to the R5, yet retains its thickness

A new Oppo R5s smartphone has been launched by the Chinese company, and it’s nothing but a variant of its parent device bearing better memory. Despite this, the handset has managed to retain the incredible 4.85mm thickness which is one of the highlights of the R5.

The Oppo R5s comes with 3GB worth of RAM onboard, instead of 2GB. Moreover, its inbuilt storage also gets bumped up from 16GB to 32GB. The rest of the specs of this device however, remain the same.
