Oppo debuted two new smartphones today, the Oppo Neo 5 (2015) model and the Neo 5s. There was already an Oppo Neo 5 out there, a handset launched last year, so that’s why there’s the 2015 tag attached to it.
The standout point of both products is their dual layer metallic structure, as well as the laminated glossy backs, with “a beautiful shine”. The styling may remind you a tiny bit of the Oppo R1x model. Oppo Neo 5 (2015) brings a quad core MediaTek MT6582 processor, clocked at 1.3 GHz, as well as a dual core Mali 400MP2 GPU and 1 GB of RAM. It also has 8 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and a 4.5 inch IPS screen with a 854 x 480 pixel resolution.
The Oppo Neo 5s brings a quad core Snapdragon 410 CPU, clocked at 1.2 GHz and has the same RAM and storage as the new Neo 5, plus the same screen. Both units have 8 megapixel back cameras with F/2.2 aperture, 2 megapixel selfie shooters with F/2.8 aperture and 2000 mAh batteries. A difference here is the fact that the Oppo Neo 5s offers LTE connectivity, while the Neo 5 (2015) doesn’t.
These handsets measure 8 mm in thickness, weigh 135 grams and run Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Color OS 2.0.1 on top.
