Oppo might launch its R5 smartphone shortly after its N3

The Oppo N3 is still yet to make its debut appearance (it’s set to be unveiled on 29 October) and already, rumours are circulating around the tech sphere of another one of its purported smartphones.

This time, its R5 appears to be under the spotlight, thanks to some leaks which first made their appearance on an Indonesian Postel website similar to the FCC in the US and TENAA in China. It appears that it made it on the certification database list on this telecommunications regulator’s portal, under the model number “R8106”.

So considering that there’s a very high possibility for the device to show up in Indonesia, the chances of it making to Singapore aren’t that slim either.

But not much more information was leaked about the device, its looks or specifications. The only other thing that was listed is that it has radio LTE, meaning it will most likely be 4G compatible, and that it’s made in China.

If the R5 does launch, it will be the successor to the Oppo R3, which, at 6.3mm, was the thinnest 4G smartphone of its time. If history is to repeat itself, or Oppo tries to outdo its own record, the R5 will be subject to some nip and tuck.

And rumour has it that it will most likely officially be shown off not too long after the N3, so maybe it will be out sometime before the end of the year. We’ll feed you with more leaks as they come in the lead up to the alleged smartphone launch.
