Oppo Announces Potentially Mid-Ranged Neo 5 (2015) and Neo 5s
Oppo unveiled today potentially two mid-ranged smartphones, the Neo 5 (2015) and the Neo 5s.
The Oppo Neo 5 (2015) brings an upgradation of the features of the last year launched original Neo 5; it is pretty much identical to its predecessor. The 5s offers more storage capacity, improved processor, and an advanced display technology that promises eye protection from detrimental rays.
Both the smartphones feature 4.5-inch, 480 x 854 display, which is arguably less than the present industry’s common standards. One GB of RAM, too, isn’t a great attraction. The mid-ranged handsets encase a mediocre 2000 mAh battery.
Both the smartphones present 8 GB of internal memory. Also means, Oppo has bundled 4GB extra storage capacity in the 2015 variant of the Neo 5; as the latter offered only 4GB storage. The newly announced smartphones support microSD for memory expansion.
The Neo 5 can gain up to 32 GB in capacity with a microSD card; Memory of the 5s can be expanded up to 128 GB. But the increased freedom of storing media will cost users a little more.
As per the processors, the Neo 5 (2015) comes equipped with MediaTek’s quad-core MT6582 SoC with dual-core Mali-400MP2 graphics. And the Neo 5s features Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon S410 with an Adreno 306 GPU.
The difference in specs persist in case of connectivity options as well. The Neo does not support LTE, while the Neo 5s does.
The duo will provide users with an opportunity to take nice images with their 8-megapixel rear shooters featuring an f/2.2 aperture lens and a LED flash, notes the news source. Above the screen, the handsets have a 2MP snapper and f/2.8 aperture lens.
Beyond the less attractive features, mentioned above, Oppo’s new smartphones are running outdated Android KitKat 4.4.2.
