Oppo's Mirror 5 mid-ranger leaks out ahead of official unveiling
Although Oppo just recently released the Mirror 3 smartphone back in January, it looks like the Chinese manufacturer is already well on its way to releasing a followup device. According to a recent set of leaked press images obtained by the folks over at GSMArena, we may have just gotten our first look at OPPO’s upcoming mid-ranger, the Mirror 5.
As the name suggests, the Mirror 5 will feature a mirrored back panel with a unique diamond pattern. While details are somewhat scarce when it comes to the phone’s specifications, GSMArena says the phone will feature 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, a rear-facing camera with OPPO’s Pure Image 2.0+ interface, as well as a 5MP front-facing camera with Beautify 3.0 enhancements. The device will supposedly also run Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. As is the case with other OPPO devices, we can expect the Mirror 5 to run OPPO’s custom Color OS software.
Judging from the images attached above, not much really stands out about the phone, aside from the back panel of course. It looks to be a relatively thin device, though the dimensions have yet to be revealed. We can see three capacitive buttons on the front, a single rear-facing speaker and a simple camera module on the top-left of the phone’s backside. Even though the device looks to feature a premium metal aesthetic, judging from other mid-rangers released by the company, the device will probably be made of plastic.
The leak also states that the device will launch in both 3G and LTE variants in 20 different markets by late June or early July, and Taiwan will be the first market to have access to the phone. The report mentions that it should launch sometime relatively soon, so we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for an official release.
