Oppo recently unveiled its latest affordable smartphone with 4G LTE connectivity—the new Oppo Neo 5. It’s a 4.5-inch handset that’s powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400.
With a sub-5-inch display, sub-HD screen resolution, and Snapdragon 400, the Oppo Neo 5 is a low to mid-range smartphone. Its graphics is powered by Adreno 305, basic multitasking is doable with its 1GB of RAM, and a decent number of apps can be installed on its 4GB of internal storage. Admittedly, it doesn’t have much to brag about in terms of hardware. It does come equipped with 4G LTE, though, so users looking for fast data connectivity might want the Neo 5 as their next budget 4G device.

On the back of the Oppo Neo 5 is a 5-megapixel camera with a backside-illuminated (BSI) sensor. It’s capable of HDR and panorama shots and also acts as a barcode and poster scanner. Like the selfie-centric Oppo N1, it also includes features to automatically enhance your front-camera shots. And akin to its predecessor Neo, the Oppo Neo 5 is full of gestures, including ones that work even when the screen is off.
The Oppo Neo 5 will first roll out in Malaysia with an expected price of RM598 (which is around Php8,300 in today’s exchange). Launches in other Asian markets are likely, but haven’t been officially announced so far.
