The press renders reveal a boxy exterior, with innards held together by a metallic frame and a reinforced internal structure. But perhaps the most attractive aspect of the phone’s design can be found around the back, where the reflective, diamond-like pattern we saw on the OPPO R1x makes a return.
The most attractive aspect of the Mirror 5’s design can be found around the back, where the diamond-like pattern we saw on the R1x makes a return.
The front of the device flaunts a 5-inch IPS display with qHD resolution and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. Inside, you’ll find a quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. On the software side, the Mirror 5 comes preloaded with Android Lollipop 5.1, making it one of two handsets in OPPO’s portfolio that runs the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system.
OPPO Philippines remains mum on a local release, but I expect the Mirror 5 to launch next month. It should retail for somewhere north of P10,000 considering its predecessor, the Mirror 3, is currently priced at P9,990.
OPPO has been listed as one of the top 5 smartphone brands in Southeast Asia, according to a previous report by research firm IDC.
