Stylish exterior, waterdrop screen and mirror-finish back design  

With a sublime 6.2-inch LCD waterdrop screen, 19:9 aspect ratio and a 1520×720-pixel resolution, OPPO A5s’ screen design draws its inspiration from a water droplet on the verge of falling. From gaming to watching videos to just plain web browsing, users can enjoy an unparalleled, immersive experience.

OPPO A5s applies a similarly meticulous design to its back cover and frames. The texture of the mirror-finish back cover offers a premium finish, while its smooth surface picks up streams of light to create a stunning visual experience. To ensure that the smooth mirror surface rests comfortably in the palm of a hand, OPPO A5s leverages. For greater visual impact, OPPO A5s also utilizes a frosted texture design for its middle frame, creating a sharp contrast with its rear mirror finish. The OPPO A5s series comes in two colours – black and red.

Power-packed with MediaTek Helio P35 

OPPO A5s is the first smartphone launched in India which is built with a MediaTek Helio P35 processor. The MediaTek Helio P35 is an octa-core chipset built on TSMC’s advanced 12nm FinFET node. The processor is powered by IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU running up to a speedy 680MHz. The MediaTek Helio P35 is backed by a hardware depth engine that enables OPPO A5s capture professional-grade Depth of Field (Bokeh) effects which helps capture incredible results. It is also paired to the Rolling Shutter Compensation (RSC), which cleverly mitigates warped (‘jello effect’) video when capturing fast action or panning.

Powered by a 4230mAh large-capacity battery, OPPO A5s supports up to 13.5 hours of video playback, thanks to AI algorithm optimization and a low power-consumption MTK6765 processor. Its 2.3GHz CPU and 2GB RAM enables several applications to run seamlessly at the same time, effectively eliminating freezing and serving multiple user scenarios.

At the back the OPPO A5s is equipped with 13MP+2MP dual rear camera, which enables excellent portrait photography for its users. The primary camera uses a 5P lens to precisely control the light path, which creates a sharper image. Meanwhile, the multi-frame anti-shake technology ensures a smoother, more stable video shooting experience.

Making life smarter and more efficient with ColorOS 5.2.1 

OPPO A5s runs on the streamlined and striking ColorOS 5.2.1. The device comes with some intelligent as well as super convenient features such as Smart Bar, Music on Display, Video Editing, and more.
