After launching fingerprint enabled N3, Oppo has proceed in unveiling its next flagship, the R5. The firm seems determined to catch up with their rivals before this year goes to an end as they snapped the world's thinnist phone title from Gionee.

The Oppo R5 is 4.85mm thick which is 0.25mm slimmer than Elife S5.1 that comes with 5.1mm metal body, making it the world's thinnest phone. Notably, the Elife S5.1 was recorded in Guiness Book Of World Records as world's slimmest phone when it was launched in September. The R5 is priced at $499 (Roughly NGN 83,000 Nigerian Nairas) while availability details is yet to be announced.


The smartphone features a 5.2-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080*1920 pixels and runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat out-of-the-box overlayed with the company's ColorOS UI. It is driven by a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615 MSM8939 processor (2.1GHz quad-core + 1.5GHz quad-core) slammed with 2GB of RAM.

The Oppo R5 touts a 13-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX214 sensor and LED, and houses a secondary 5-megapixel front camera. It packs a 16GB internal storage with no external storage support. On the connectivity fronts, the device support Wifi, Bluetooth 4.0, 3G, GPS and Micro-USB. It is backed by a 2,000mAh battery.

Last month, Blue Vivo IV claimed itself as the world's thinnest phone. The smartphone has a 5.5mm thin body but disappointedly runs the dated Android 4.2 Jelly bean.
