Oppo Mirror 5 now available, retailing for RM998

Fancy a flashy phone with a budget price? This is it

Oppo's just released its Mirror 5 in Malaysia and its main selling point seems to be its exterior - a diamond-like mirrored surface. The phone's back has individual cut-glass, reflective sections though the phone isn't exactly fragile. It has a bi-metallic frame with cross beams for more durability.

As for specs, it has a Qualcomm 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (expandable with a microSD card up to 128GB) and runs Oppo's own ColorOS 2.1 operating system. The back camera is an 8MP snapper, with an f/2.2 aperture. The front camera gets a 5MP sensor, with what Oppo calls its Beautify 3.0 technology - fancy name for what is essentially software to tweak your photos.

For RM998, it's a somewhat affordable mid-range phone though you can get much better specs for that amount of money. Still, if you want a nice-looking phone at a nice price, the Mirror 5 isn't a bad option.
