Oppo announced the Reno Ace flagship with Snapdragon 855+ and 65W charging, but the event also saw the unveiling of the midranger Oppo K5. This device has a Snapdragon 730G chipset and a 64 MP camera, along with three more shooters.
The screen of the Oppo K5 is an AMOLED panel with an underdisplay fingerprint scanner. It’s diagonal is 6.4”, while the ratio is 19.5:9. The front-facing camera is hidden in a waterdrop notch and there is a slight bezel on the bottom. Otherwise, it is a pretty impressive device and Oppo promises over 91% screen-to-body ratio.
The back of the Oppo K5 has a slick glass panel and a quad-camera setup. The main one has a 64MP sensor, and you also get an 8MP ultrawide camera, a dedicated macro snapper and a depth sensor. If the setup looks familiar, it is probably because it is the same as on the Realme X2 – down to the apertures and pixel sizes. Even the battery pack is the same – 4,000 mAh with VOOC 3.0 that allows 30W fast-charging and up to 67% charge for 30 minutes in the grid.
The phone costs CNY1,899 (€240/$266) for the 6/128 GB variant, CNY2,099 (€267/$295) for the 8/128 GB version, while the 8/256 GB will set you back CNY2,499 (€320/$350). Offered in three colors (Green, White, and Blue gradients), it will be available for sale starting October 17.
