Oppo garnered the title of having the world’s thinnest smartphone with the 4.85mm Oppo R5 and replaced the 5.1mm Gionee S5.1 from the throne.

Despite its incredible slimness, the Oppo R5 still sports high end features such as an octa core Snapdragon 615 processor, full HD 5.2-inch screen, 2GB RAM and a 13MP camera.

Just like most thin smartphones, the Oppo R5 has a slightly bulging camera module at the back. That’s not really a major problem though and the camera has the capability to take up to 50MP pictures using a clever stitching technique.

Inside the Oppo R5, the octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 runs the show at 1.5GHz with an Adreno 330 graphics processor and 2GB of RAM. There’s a 2,000mAh battery to keep the smartphone up and running while its VOOC fast charging feature lets you charge it up to 75% in 30 minutes.

The Oppo R5 has a 5.2-inch AMOLED display with full HD resolution with a layer of scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top and a customized version of Android 4.4.4 Kitkat called Color OS 2.0.

One particular detail that you should know about the Oppo R5 is its lack of a 3.5mm audio jack. There’s a free microUSB to 3.5mm audio jack adapter included in the box though.
