Oppo is a Chinese manufacturer which makes a lot of noise with its unique phones has built what it calls the thinnest phone ever.

The R5 with its 4.85mm makes the iPhone 6 with its 6.9 mm look so fat it can attract small moons into its orbit.  


The phone comes with 5.2 inch Amoled Display with 1920x1080 and 423 PPI as well as Snapdragon 615 with 1.5GHz Octacore CPU with Adreno 330 graphics. It comes in silver and gold , weights 155 grams and measures 148.9 × 74.5 × 4.85 mm.


Oppo R5 comes with 2GB RAM, 16GB Storage, 2000 mAh battery and mico SIM. There was no space for microSD card.

Sony Exmor IMX214 BSI sensor is the name of the camera and it has 13 megapixels. Front camera has 5 megapixels and 83 degree wide angle lens and both cameras have F/2.0

The phone was too thin  for a 3.5 inch stereo audio connector so Oppo is shipping USB-to-3.5mm Audio Adaptor that will let you use your headphones. R5 does ship with in-ear type earphones, micro USB cable, VOOC mini Rapid Charger and SIM ejector tool. The rapid charger means that you will be able to charge your phone 75 percent in just half an hour.

A five minute charge should give you a two hour of phone call and we are quite sure that this is using Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 technology.

We haven’t seen shipping date or a price for the Oppo R5, but with its slim design, it might become popular for people who like unique things and to think differently out of the box, away from all the Galaxy 5, Note or iPhone fans.

We have to admit that the spec looks interesting, we wonder how good is the ColorOS looks like compared to Android but there should be a way to get Cyanogen on these phones too.
