Oppo has officially announced two mid-range smartphones – the Neo 5 (2015) and Neo 5s – but its release date, pricing and availability is still not known. The devices are expected to hit the stores soon, as it has made it to the company's website.
The Oppo Neo 5 (2015) should not be confused for the Neo 5, which was released last year. The Neo 5 (2015) is a new version with better specifications and features. It sports a 4.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 480x854 pixels (218ppi pixel density) and houses an 8mp main camera and 2mp front snapper.
Under the hoods, Neo 5 (2015) has a Quad-core Cortex-A7 Mediatek processor, clocking at 1.3GHz, a dual-core Mali-400MP2 GPU, Android 4.4.2 KitKat, 8GB internal memory expandable up to 32GB via microSD card and 1GB RAM, and a non-removable Li-Po 2,000mAh battery.
The device also has connectivity like Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, hotspot Bluetooth v4.0, A2DP, A-GPS, Radio TBC, microUSB v2.0, and USB Host.
Oppo Neo 5s is very similar to the Neo 5 (2015) except for some features like network, processor and memory. The device sports a 4.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 480x854 pixels (218ppi pixel density) and runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat, but is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which boasts of high performance and low power consumption, unlike the Mediatek processor seen in the Neo 5 (2015).
The two variants of the device come with similar features like camera, battery, connectivity and both come with design that has a double-layer metallic structure for a more compact, thin and seamless body. However, the Oppo Neo 5s supports LTE, which means it supports 4G, and its internal memory is expandable up to 128GB unlike 32GB in Neo 5 (2015).
