Oppo R5 has 5.2-inch AMOLED display, body that measures just 4.85mm thick


The N3 isn’t the only new smartphone that the folks at Oppo announced today! And if a motorized swiveling camera isn’t your thing, maybe a super-thin smartphone is.

The Oppo R5 features an aluminum frame and a body that measures just 4.85mm thick. Yeah, that’s pretty thin. In order to help keep the R5’s internals cool inside that space, Oppo has included a Cool Element to absorb heat and improve thermal efficiency.

Of course, Oppo couldn’t create the R5 without giving its camera at least a little special attention. The Oppo R5’s 13-megapixel sensor is of the Sony Exmor IMX214 BSI variety, has an f/2.0 aperture and a Pure Image stitching feature that can create 50-megapixel shots. Oppo has also thrown in a Tracking Focus feature and the ability to alter the focus of a photo after it’s been taken.

So by now I bet you’re wondering what kind of specs Oppo was able to cram inside of the R5’s 4.85mm frame. Wonder no more, friends:

  • 5.2-inch 1920×1080 AMOLED display
  • 13-megapixel rear camera with Sony Exmor IMX214 BSI sensor
  • 5-megapixel front camera with wide-angle 83 degree lens
  • 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB of storage
  • 4G LTE
  • Oppo ColorOS 2.0 with Android 4.4 KitKat
  • 148.9 × 74.5 × 4.85mm
  • 2000mAh battery
  • VOOC mini Rapid Charger that can provide two hours of talk time in five minutes of a 75 percent charge in 30 minutes

The Oppo R5 is slated to go on sale in December for $499. Oppo also plans to offer an O-Music Bluetooth clip that can be used to control your music or snap a photo with the R5’s camera.

    the clock widget looks like it was lifted from android 1.1. other than that i like the side scroll wave motion in the menus.

    I would gladly take a phone twice as thick as this if it gives at least twice the battery capacity. What’s with so many manufacturers not getting it! Consumers want battery life, making phones thinner at the cost of a smaller battery life is a major fail!!

    Very enticing phone. Sadly Oppo messed up again and put the back button in the wrong spot. It’s supposed to be on the far left!
