Oppo Mirror 5s

Oppo has just announced another noteworthy mid-range Android device, this one called the Mirror 5s.

On Friday, July 3, Oppo officially announced the Mirror 5s, which is a new handset running Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. One other noteworthy aspect of the device, and probably where it got its namesake, is the mirrored, diamond-shaped pattern on the back cover. (www.algerie360.com) Oppo says they made sure to strengthen it, though, with an internal metal frame and other enhancements to make sure the device won’t break or bend.

The rear camera is an 8MP shooter, with an f/2.2 aperture and a BSI back-illuminated design. The company states that the camera can take clear photos even in low-light, which should be a nice bonus for owners. On the front of the handset there’s a 5MP camera.

Inside, there’s a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor, and there’s a 5-inch 720p HD display. The battery is measured in at 2420mAh, it has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage with a microSD card slot for good measure. Oppo has included its proprietary ColorOS 2.1 over Android 5.1.

Unfortunately, when the Mirror 5s will become available is still unknown at this point, as well as how much it will cost.

What do you think of the looks of it?
