New Delhi: Chinese handset maker OPPO has launched 4G-enabled smartphone R5 for the Indian market, which is priced at Rs 29,990.


OPPO R5 will be available for pre-booking from January 1, 2015 onwards.

The smartphone measures 4.85 mm in width and weighs 155 g and is equipped with an octa-core Qualcomm MSM8939, and a 5.2-inch AMOLED screen.

Tom Lu, CEO, 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 claims that 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, a statement said.

It comes with a 13 MP rear camera and the PI 2.0 Plus Flash Shot technology.
