When it was announced back in October of last year, the Oppo R5 was the world's thinnest smartphone, with its 4.85mm profile. This, coupled with its frame made from 3D-welded aluminum alloy, made it quite crave-worthy even if spec-wise it was nothing but a mid-ranger.
Time has passed, though, and it looks like its original asking price of $499 (or €399 in the EU) has become a bit too steep for what this phone actually offers. So Oppo went ahead and started a "flash sale" for the R5 on its official online store.
That's probably the Chinese company's way of enacting a price cut without calling it that, since there's seemingly no end date for this flash sale anywhere to be found.
The Oppo R5 comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p touchscreen, a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 5 MP selfie snapper, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 615 SoC at the helm (with an octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU clocked at up to 1.7 GHz), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of non-expandable storage, and a non-removable 2,000 mAh battery. It runs Color OS 2.0 based on Android 4.4 KitKat.
It's still 399! https://europe.oppostyle.com/r5-silver/ Where do you get your facts from ?!
