Description

With dimensions of 148.9 x 74.5 x 4.85mm, the Oppo R5 is the first device to wander into sub-5mm territory with its extremely slender, 3D-welded aluminum profile of 4.85mm. The manufacturer has packed some pretty adequate hardware inside the device, too. See, the front is graced by a 5.2-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. This puts the pixel density of the Oppo R5 on par with the one of the Sony Xperia Z3 - 423 ppi. The piece of silicon that churns the nuts and bolts of the Oppo R5 is a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 SoC comprising eight Cortex-A53 cores and humming at up to 1.5GHz.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 424 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

  • FCC measured SAR:

    FCC measured SAR - Working closely with federal health and safety agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FCC has adopted limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy. These limits are given in terms of a unit referred to as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The FCC requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure that their phones comply with these objective limits for safe exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
