The much-awaited ultra-slim smartphone Oppo R5 has been finally launched in India.
"This phone (Oppo R5) has been developed with the end-user in mind. We used cutting edge manufacturing techniques to create a phone that fits perfectly into the users' hands, and that feels incredible. The frame has been forged nine times and then finished by hand to give a perfect sheen and feel. It has a quality that is not available anywhere else in the industry," said Tom Lu, CEO, OPPO India.
"The R5, like the rest of the R series delivers a truly stylish, exquisite and distinctive design and will continue to delight our customers with its innovative yet practical functions," he added.
Oppo R5's USP is that it measures just a 4.85 mm in thickness. It held world record for being the slimmest phone briefly for few weeks. Early this month, it got beaten by Vivo X5 Max, which measures 4.75 mm.
