As expected, OPPO K5 is official the same day as OPPO Reno A in Japan and OPPO Reno Ace in China. It is a new model that bets on 64 megapixels For your main sensor.
The OPPO K5 is a much more premium version than its brother the OPPO K3: in exchange for not having a motorized system for its front lens, it has a 64 MP quad camera and Snapdragon 730G as a processor.

The 64 MP are in fashion
The star aspect of this OPPO K5 is undoubtedly its main camera. There are four lenses, something that no longer surprises us as much as before, but what is more special is that the main sensor is up to megapixels: 64 MP to be exact.
These megapixels can combine four of their pixels into one to achieve more detailed and luminous images, or create a huge image in suitable lighting conditions. This main sensor is accompanied by a 8MP super wide angle with an angle of 119 degrees and two other lenses.
OPPO has not given us too many details of these two additional lenses, although apparently they are two sensors of 2 MP destined to improve the portraits taken with the terminal. One of them is a monochrome lens, while the other is used to calculate depth and generate the coveted portrait effect with background blur.
For the screen, OPPO has opted for a panel 6.4 inch OLED with Full HD + resolution and that goes from edge to edge interrupted only by the V-shaped notch that crowns the terminal. In it is the 32-megapixel front camera.
Not only does the OPPO K5 live on camera, and OPPO has ensured that it also has a good performance. For this, it has the Qualcomm gaming processor, the Snapdragon 730G and a quantity of RAM to choose between 6 GB or 8 GB, depending on versions. Storage is also available in two flavors: 128 GB and 256 GB, both UFS 2.1.
To lend a hand in performance are the GameBoost 2.0 software and the Dual Wi-Fi, which is connected at the same time to the 2.4 and 5 GHz network of the same connection to achieve – in theory – greater stability in the connection.
As for the battery, we have a negligible capacity to 4,000 mAh with support for fast charging VOOC 4.0, or what is the same, at 30W. All this by connecting a standard USB-C cable.
