Remember the Oppo R5? Yes, the same device that was just 4.85mm thick and hence, wore the crown of being the thinnest Smartphone around. Now Vivo goes to grab away this title from Oppo R5, with the launch of their new device X5 Max, that Vivo would be launching in India on December 15. So, who amongst Oppo R5 & Vivo X5 Max would be the winner in Indian market?
Though we would get details regarding Vivo X5 Max on Monday, we are yet to receive some bits of knowledge relating to the launch of Oppo R5. As per the release issued by the company, R5 Smartphone will be making its manner in India later within the month. The release additionally states that the device is going to be priced in between Rs 25,000 to 30,000.
The R5 is the successor to the Asia-only R3. Its 0.3 mm slimmer than the already crazy-thin Gionee Elife S5.1, and its all-metal body weighs 155g. Amazingly, its actually contains some none-too-shabby guts. You are looking at a 5.2-inch full HD AMOLED screen, a 64-bit flower 615 SoC, and 2GB of RAM.
For camera, there is a 5MP front and 13MP rear cameras. The Oppo R5 supports LTE radio and packs in a 2,000 mAh battery. There is 16GB of internal storage, however no MicroSD expansion.
It’s not all positive, though. There is no 3.5mm headphone connector-clearly fitting one in was an excessive amount of a headache-so you will have to use a bundled micro-USB adapter or Bluetooth. And therefore the phone runs Color OS at 2.0 an OS supported Android 4.4 which is OK.
