Oppo has launched a new smartphone today, the Mirror 5, a lower spec'd budget device that actually arrives as something of a design triumph. The Chinese company is the latest manufacturer to offer an affordable device with a solid aesthetic appeal, although the Mirror 5 brings something different to the party.In fact Oppo has paid plenty of attention to detail and with a glass body the Mirror 5 looks decidedly premium considering its humble innards. The company cut the glass to offer reflections that make the device look like a diamond, and while that may sound like too much bling for you, the finished article is actually quite subtle. In terms of specs the Mirror 5 packs a solid enough punch. It has a 5-inch qHD screen (960 x 540) up front, while under the hood there is a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. 2GB of RAM aids the chipset and a 2420 mAh battery will keep the lights on. Native storage is capped at 16GB, but Oppo has included a micro SD card slot for those who want to expand space.
