Oppo neo 5 2015

Oppo seems to have just made a couple of new devices official, one of them carrying a name that was the same last year as well. The Oppo Neo 5 (2015) and the Neo 5s are two new smartphones that just got announced, and both of them carry the same design, and differ with the internals.

The Oppo Neo 5 2015 comes with a 4.5-inch IPS display with FWVGA resolution (854 x 480 pixels), and it is powered by a Mediatek MT6582 quad-core chipset clocking at 1.3 GHz, supported by Mali-400MP2 GPU and 1GB of RAM, along with 8GB internal storage, which is expandable to 32GB with a MicroSD card. Both of them run Android 4.4.2 KitKat with ColorOS v2.0.1 layered over it.

The Neo 5s is a little better device in terms of internal specs, as the phone has the same screen, but comes packed with a quad-core 64-bit chipset, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 at 1.2 GHz, and it has 1GB of RAM and 8GB internal storage, but the MicroSD card slot here can support up to 128GB storage expansion.

Another difference between the two devices, is the connectivity where the Neo 5s supports 4G LTE connectivity, while the Neo 5 2015 doesn’t have support for LTE networks. The cameras are the same in both the phones, i.e. a 8-megapixel f/2.2 camera on the back, and a 2-megapixel f/2.8 camera on the front. The phones come packed with a 2000 mAh battery.

For the design, Oppo is calling it something as double-layer metallic structure for the body, which is said to be sturdy, and also helpful in dissipation of heat. Although there is no faceted glass effect, the back panel of the Oppo Neo 5 (2015) and the Neo 5s resembles the one on R1x, and it is a laminated reflective back on the device. The Neo 5 (2015) and Neo 5s will carry crystal white and sapphire blue color variants.

    Oppo in budget smartphone category . But neo 5 will not make any impact since the hardware in it is old now .

    Sturdy metallic body is quiet impressive but Android 4.4.2 KitKat & few specs makes it uninteresting in comparison to latest brands
