The Oppo Neo 5, possibly the successor to the Oppo Neo, is now listed on the company's site without pricing details. However, Soyacincau claims that the Neo 5 is priced at MYR 598 (translating to roughly Rs. 11,500) and will be available starting next week in Malaysia.
As of now, there is no word from the company whether the Neo 5 will be announced in other countries including India.
The Oppo Neo 5 runs the dated Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with the company's proprietary ColorOS skin on top. There is no word whether the smartphone supports single SIM or dual-SIMs. The Neo 5 comes with LTE support, which can be said to be the highlight of the device at this price.
