The Oppo R5 is available for pre-bookings at physical stores from Thursday until January 15. The company as a promotional offer is also offering a back pack with every pre-booking of the R5 smartphone. Oppo in a tweet on Wednesday confirmed the details.
The company back in October launched the Oppo R5 at $499. The smartphone features metallic and ceramic finishes at the corners.
The Oppo R5 features a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) AMOLED display that offers a pixel density of 423ppi. The R5 is powered by a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 (MSM8939) processor (2.1GHz quad-core + 1.5GHz quad-core) alongside with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 405.
Oppo R5 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX214 sensor; f/2.0 aperture, and a LED flash. There is a 5-megapixel front-facing camera also onboard. Running the company's proprietary ColorOS 2.0.1 (based on Android 4.4 KitKat), it supports a single Micro-SIM and comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage which is non-expandable.
There is 2000mAh battery onboard, and the smartphone supports VOOC charging technology that is said to charge the battery from 0 to 75 percent in around 30 minutes. Connectivity options on the smartphone include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPRS/ EDGE, TD LTE, LTE FDD, and Micro-USB. Notably, there is no 3.5mm audio jack onboard, and customers will have to use the bundled Micro-USB to 3.5mm audio jack adapter, or the wireless O-Music accessory. The Oppo R5 measures 148.9x74.5x4.85mm and weighs 155 grams.
