New Delhi, India, December 30, 2014: OPPO India, a leading global technology brand with presence in North America, Europe and Asia today announced the launch of OPPO R5 in the India market at the price of Rs. 29,990/-. Measuring 4.85 mm in width and weighing 155 g, the 4G-enabled R5 is equipped with exceptional technology including an octa-core Qualcomm MSM8939, and comes with a 5.2-inch AMOLED screen giving the highest brightness and color rendition, the lowest reflection ratio, and highest ambient light contrast ratio available. OPPO R5 will be available for pre-booking from January 1, 2015 onwards.
Tom Lu, CEO of OPPO India, said, “This phone has been developed with the end user in mind. We used cutting edge manufacturing techniques to create a phone that fits perfectly into the users’ hands, and that feels incredible. The frame has been forged nine times and then finished by hand to give a perfect sheen and feel. It has a quality that is not available anywhere else in the industry. The R5, like the rest of the R series delivers a truly stylish, exquisite and distinctive design and will continue to delight our customers with its innovative yet practical functions.”
OPPO’s R5 is the world’s first smartphone that uses phase-change material, keeping it at a constant cool temperature whilst maintaining superior functionality. The R5’s patented heat dissipation technology “Cool Element” protects its octa-core CPU, in turn prolonging the life of the phone. It comes with a 13 MP rear camera. With the latest PI 2.0 Plus Flash Shot technology, the R5 lets you take the shot with an imperceptible focus time – it has a maximum focus time of 0.18 seconds and delivers 50MP high-definition picture clarity.
Built with first-grade steel and designed with a beautiful micro-arc frame to make the entire device smooth and strong, the R5 is manufactured to fit your hand like a glove. In addition to its user-friendly functionalities, the R5 also includes OPPO’s VOOC mini rapid charging system, where a 30-minute charge will provide 75% battery life and a five-minute charge will allow for a two-hour call.
