Oppo R5 was launched back last year with an ‘extra' slim profile. At just 4.85mm the device was slimmer than an ordinary pencil. Thanks to the slim profile, Oppo had to skimp upon the battery and the SoC. Nevertheless it seems like the company is planning to give an upgrade to their year old ‘slim' device in the form of R5s.
The all new device stills packs the 5.2 inch Full HD (1920x1080) resolution display with an octacore SD615 SoC under the hood. The major change though is in the RAM department, where Oppo is packing in a 3GB unit in place of the 2Gbv present in the previous generation. The dimension of the all new model are still at 4.85mm - making it one of the slimmest devices available in the market.
Further the R5s comes with a bumped up internal storage of 32GB from the 16GB found on the previous edition. Nevertheless Oppo still doesn't pack in a MicroSD card - it was kind of expected though considering the slim profile.
The cameras on the other hand remain the same -the 13MP f2.0 aperture snapper with Sony IMX214 sensor and a front-facing 5MP f2.0 unit. As mentioned earlier the company had to skimp upon the battery to make it slim - features a rather small 2000 mAh unit. Fast Charge is supported though.
The device runs on Android KitKat with the company's ColorOS 2.0 UI running on top. For network connectivity is a 4G LTE support. The Oppo R5s was spotted on the Foxconn's European website, priced at the equivalent of $226 USD.
