After Xiaomi, it's the Taiwan-based smartphone maker Oplus which is all set to release its latest smartphone range in India. The device we are talking about is the XonPhone 5, and it's not much of a flagship device, but does feature specs that can give sleepless nights to the domestic smartphone vendors.
Reportedly, Oplus has already listed the smartphone on its official India website, however, the pricing of the device is not yet revealed at the moment but it looks to be a mid-ranger.
The XonPhone 5 is not the first device from Oplus that got launched in India. The company started selling the XonPad 7 tablet in the country earlier this year and if going by what experts say, the XonPad 7 made an impressive entry in the Indian market as it was pretty decent and the price it was being offered was another tempting aspect of the tablet, which is around Rs 9,009.
However, for right now lets take a look at the specifications of XonPhone 5.
XonPhone 5: Key Specifications
Oplus has used a trending 5-inch IPS OGS display offering an HD display of 1280 x 720p churning out the pixel density of 320ppi. It comes powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6582 quad-core CPU coupled with 1GB RAM and runs on Android v4.4 KitKat.
