There are plenty of sleek and thin smartphones available in the market these days, but Oppo took things to the next level by launching Oppo R5, the world’s thinnest smartphone till date. Standing at 4.85 mm thin, the smartphone makes no compromises in the specifications & features department. One little thing though – the phone is way too thin to accommodate a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Oppo has a solution at hand for this too. Read on to find out the detailed specifications, features, pricing and availability details.

The Oppo R5 impresses us on many fronts, the internals of the device are impressive. The device is 2 mm thinner & has a smaller footprint than an iPhone 6 but sports a larger 5.2 inch Full HD display and larger battery. This in itself, is an engineering feat. There are some compromises which have to be made in order to become the world’s thinnest smartphone. Luckily it has only one – lack of a 3.5 mm standard headphone jack. Oppo bundles a USB to 3.5 mm adapter with the device to overcome this problem. This may be a major hindrance to some but we see it as a workaround rather than a lacking feature.

Also, the rapid charging of Oppo R5 claims the best figures till date – 75 percent in 30 minutes. Although a review will verify whether the claims are right or not. Camera also comes with loads of bells and whistles like Fast Focus, 50 Megapixel Panorama Shots, Adjustable Focus,GIF Mode, Tracking Focus and a good Low Light performance. This might satisfy most of the shutter-bugs out there but real life performance remains to be seen.

Pricing and Availability

The phone is set to roll out globally in December 2014, and it’ll cost US $499 or Rs. 30,000 contract-free.
