OPPO officially announces Neo 5 (2015) and Neo 5s


OPPO Neo 5 5s 2015

Amidst all the Apple news and mayhem, Chinese manufacturer OPPO is announcing a pair of new handsets: the OPPO Neo 5 (2015) and the Neo 5s. Both of these devices are a follow up to last year’s Neo 5 (2014) and feature the same thin, “double-layer” metallic body with a laminated back cover.

Specs are largely the same, with the regular Neo 5 sporting a MediaTek MT6582 processor with support for a 32GB micro SD card, while the 5s has a snappier 64-bit Qualcomm S410 SoC and supports up to a 128GB micro SD. Here’s the quick spec sheet:

OPPO Neo 5 (2015) and 5s

  • 4.5-inch 854×480 resolution IPS display
  • 8MP camera f/2.2 (Pure Image 2.0+)
  • 8GB internal storage / 1GB RAM
  • Micro SD card slot
  • 2,000mAh
  • Dual SIM
  • 131.9mm x 65.5mm x 8mm and 135g
  • Android 4.4.2 KitKat with ColorOS v2.0.1

OPPO says their software features some kind of “eye protection” system which filters out blue light to create a warmer, more soothing screen for added health benefits. ColorOS also has a variety of gestures like a 3-finger swipe for taking screen shots or others to wake up or quickly launch the camera.

Somehow left out of the press release was pricing or an actual launch date, but we expect both these models to be affordably priced. The OPPO Neo 5 (2015) and Neo 5s will be available in either crystal white or sapphire blue colors when they launch later this year.

  1. Are we living in 2015?…854×480 resolution …really?

    1. Not an issue. All I need for porn is 640×480.

      2. Maybe in ’98 that would have been fine for a desktop but it’s not good enough anymore, dammit! ?

    2. It’s like it’s a windows phone.

    3. That and the 8GB internal, 1GB RAM ruined these phones. And for a brief moment I was excited for a nice phone that isn’t huge. Oh well the search continues.

  2. I’ve had that “eye protection” and 3 finger screenshot features on my OPPO Find 7a for ages, nothing new.

    1. I can have eye protection no matter what phone I use because I can just wear some safety glasses.

      1. hahahaaaa i see what u did there

  3. Only major difference between the Qualcomm and the media tek is that the 410 is 64 bit they are on par with each other benchmark wise anyways

    1. thanks, I was just wondering that actually

    2. Well then there’s all the Bluetooth issues Mediatek has, and the fact that they ignore their GPL obligations.

  4. mediatek and 2000mAh batter should not be in the same article….no thanks!

  5. Oy vey, again with the 8GB internal storage…
