Oppo R5 officially launches; thinnest at only 4.85mm

If the selling point of the N3 is the rotating camera, the R5 proposition is that it is the thinnest smartphone today. At only 4.85mm, R5 is made of hand-polished aluminum alloy body. Oppo says with R5, you now say good bye to a heating smartphone with the special liquid-metal phase-shifting cooling elements.


R5 sports a 5.2-inch AMOLED display at 1080p and 423ppi, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 1.5Ghz octa-core processor. It has 2G of RAM, 32G storage and has LTE.


R5 reminds me of the iPhone 5 or a much closer look-alike is the Mi4 (BTW, I spotted a Mi4 at the Oppo event! I will share a separate blogpost).  When you hold the R5 you will immediately notice that the rear camera is a protruding. It feels so thin and light with a premium casing to boast.


At the bottom you will find the micro-USB port and another mic for the noise cancelling feature of the phone.


On the left bottom side is the SIM tray.
