Oppo has officially launched the Neo 5 2015 edition and 5s and extended version of Neo 5 smartphone. Don’t get by the name Neo 5 that was launched in 2014, though the names are similar the specifications and design differs from last year’s offering. The Neo 5(2015) sports 4.5-inches IPS display with 854 X 480-pixel resolution, with 218 ppi, powered by MediaTek MT6582 SoC Soc clocked at 1.3GHz Quad-Core processor along with dual-core Mali 400MP2 GPU coupled with 1GB of Ram and 8GB of internal storage with an SD card slot that should hold up to 32GB. On the Camera side, there is an 8-megapixel autofocus primary camera with LED flash and f/2.2 lens. While the front houses 2-megapixel fixed focus selfie shooter with the f/2.8 lens. The device run on Android 4.4.2KitKat with Oppo’s ColorOS v2.0.1 on top. 2,000mAh battery powers the smartphone.
While the Oppo Neo 5S sports the similar 4.5-inches 480p IPS grade display wit no sort of display protection. The S stands for the Snapdragon, powered by 410Soc clocked in at 1.2GHz Quad-Core processor with Adreno 306GPU that should be fine to handle all the graphical requirements. 1GB of Ram and 8GB of internal storage similar to Neo 5 and 8-megapixel rear, 2-megapixel front facing shooter are present. The only difference between these two smartphones is the lack of LTE capability in Neo 5 while the Neo 5s comes with local LTE support. The phones are built around a double-layer metallic structure, which results in a compact yet the sturdy body, but also helps with heat dissipation that should be fine for handling. The company has used a laminated reflective back cover which looks like glass and is reminiscent of the most expensive R1x, though without the faceted glass effect. We are yet to find out the pricing and availability of the device. Stay tuned for the update.
