Oppo announces new midrange units: Neo 5 (2015) and Neo 5s

Chinese electronics brand Oppo continues to try to take a share of the lucrative Chinese smartphone market, playing catch up to Xiaomi and Huawei. They've announced two new mid-range devices that are pretty decent if you're looking for a not so expensive but decent unit. The Oppo Neo 5 (2015), not to be confused with the previously launched Neo 5, and the Neo 5s. Both have almost the same specs, with a touch of the more expensive R1x.

We love infographics.

The OPPO Find 7 and Find 7a are decidedly popular because they feature robust specs at a relatively low price point. It is usually the software that drives the users nuts, with OPPO seemingly very slow to update its proprietary ColorOS up to Android Lollipop standards. Well, they may have taken their sweet time about it, but it seems that day is drawing near as OPPO unveils ColorOS 2.1.0i.

A new TV advertisement that debuted on Friday, May 8th in China may have surprised those who are eagerly awaiting OPPO’s new smartphone that is rumored to be set for unveiling this month.

OPPO’s bezel-less tech explained; curved glass, refraction in play

We were not really convinced the first time that leaks came out of OPPO’s gorgeous bezel-less wonder in the R7 that it was really without bezel. We were already thinking that it might be structurally impossible to do that. OPPO’s patent application for a refraction-type tech already told us as much. But here’s more fuel to that fire, saying that OPPO is using a curved glass display approach to achieve the “bezel-less” look.
