Oppo Electronics Corp on Friday (16 January) announced that the ultra-slim R5 smartphone has been made available at retail stores across India. Oppo R5 price details were announced in India back in December and later the online pre-order service went live on 1 January.

Now, the flagship smartphone has finally hit the local brick-and-mortar store shelves.

Oppo R5's USP is its super-thin body measuring just 4.85 mm thick. It held the world record for being the slimmest phone briefly for a few weeks. But later in December 2014, it got beaten by Vivo X5 Max, which measures 4.75 mm.
