Oppo Neo 5 has finally arrived the local market, back to back with another flashy offering, the R1x.
Oppo has actually released a Neo 5, also a mid-entry phone 3rd quarter of last year in Malaysia, which have been available to limited regions including Singapore and Thailand. However, this latest Neo 5 locally available seems to be a different model altogether, or at least got better on design and upgrade on inner specs. One obvious difference is the body structure itself with a glassy built, sleeker framing with an 8.0mm thin profile.
This new Neo5 also packs a different quad-core CPU, the MediaTek MT6582 chipset with speeds at 1.3GHz, instead of the Snapdragon 400 rated lower at 1.2GHz. It has 1GB of RAM, a beefier 8GB internal memory, plus up to 32GB on memory expansion with a microSD. It also got a more powerful battery with 2000mAh capacity.
Rear camera has also been bumped up to 8MP, though the front camera stays at 2MP. Its 4.5-inch screen apparently also stays the same with 854 x 480 resolution FWVGA display. Connectivity also has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1, but data connection via 4G LTE has been opted out to service 3G and HSPA+ at most. ColorOS 2.0.1 takes on the Neo 5’s user interface on top of Kitkat 4.4.2.
