Oppo, after launching its Mirror 5s smartphone in Taiwan earlier this month, has now launched the Oppo Mirror 5 by listing it on the company website. The smartphone, like the Mirror 5s, features a diamond-inspired multi-faceted rear panel surface. The handset appears to be the global version of Mirror 5s as it features exactly the same set of specifications apart from the display resolution. The handset is set to arrive in Southeast Asia, South Asia, Mexico, and the Middle East-North Africa region. The price of the Mirror 5 is yet to be disclosed.
The Oppo Mirror 5 features 4G LTE connectivity, and is supported by both SIMs card slots. The dual-SIM based smartphone supports one Micro-SIM card and the other Nano-SIM. The smartphone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop-based Color OS 2.1.
