The Oppo R5 is just 4.85 mm thick with impressive specs for the price.

A 5.2-inch FHD smartphone just 4.85 mm thick. This is the selling point for the Oppo R5 Android smartphone and now the manufacturer is hosting a flash sale for the device lasting 48 hours through its own Oppostyle.com online store.

According to Oppo, the R5 will be available in Silver or Gray with the limited time sale beginning on August 7, 2015 at 6:30 PM HKT. The smartphone normally retails for 400 Euros and will be just 240 Euros for the duration of the sale. The small catch, however, is that the promotion is more of a pre-order. While users can secure a unit today, shipments will not begin until early September.

The sale comes in between several announcements of some of the biggest smartphones of 2015, including the OnePlus 2 and the upcoming Samsung event in NYC. This may simply be Oppo attempting to rekindle user interest in the already released R5.

The LTE-enabled Oppo R5 includes the following specifications:

  • Display: 5.2-inch 1080p
  • CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8939 615 octa-core SoC
  • RAM: 2 GB LPDDR3 RAM
  • Storage: 16 GB eMMC
  • Software: Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Cameras: Rear 13 MP Sony Exmor IMX214, f/ 2.0, Front 5 MP
  • Battery: 2200 mAh

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
