Oppo earlier announced that it will be launching OPPO R5 in India before the year end and partially true to its words, the Chinese manufacturer has revealed the price of its 4.85 mm thick ultra slim smartphone. The OPPO R5 has been priced at 29,990 INR and will be up for pre-order starting 1st January, 2015.

If you adore your gadgets razor slim, it would be hard to not be fascinated with Oppo R5, which marginally lost the ‘Slimmest’ title tag to 4.75 mm Vivo X5 Max. In spite of the slim profile, the hardware packed inside is top notch.

OPPO R5 is powered by a 5.2 Inch full HD vibrant 423 ppi Super AMOLED Display, protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and powered by 64 bit big.LITTLE octa core Snapdragon 615 chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz and assisted by Adreno 406 GPU, 2 GB RAM and non expandable 16 GB internal storage.

There is a 13 MP Sony rear camera capable of recording fashionable 4K videos and the front 5 MP wide angle camera is good enough for decent selfies. Oppo R5 is running Android 4.4 KitKat based Color OS. The 2000 mAh battery housed inside, supports VOOC Rapid charging, which should offset the limitations of modest capacity.

This phone has been developed with the end user in mind. We used cutting edge manufacturing techniques to create a phone that fits perfectly into the users’ hands, and that feels incredible. The frame has been forged nine times and then finished by hand to give a perfect sheen and feel. It has a quality that is not available anywhere else in the industry. The R5, like the rest of the R series delivers a truly stylish, exquisite and distinctive design and will continue to delight our customers with its innovative yet practical functions,” said Tom Lu, CEO, Oppo India.

The new OPPO smartphone will be up against likes of Gionee Elife S5.1 and Vivo Max X5 in India. More details on availability will be out later.
