With an official SRP of Php 9,999, midrange model Oppo Mirror 5 comes with a decent set of technical specifications, good imaging capabilities, and a couple of distinguishing traits when it comes to its design.

Aside from having a gorgeous chrome-plated, metallic rim, the handset also comes with a uniquely designed back plate that flaunts a 'sparkling diamond-like mirrored surface'. The combination of which definitely makes this model look more interesting while giving it an air of elegance and sophistication.

According to Oppo, "Feast your eyes on its unique back exterior; designed with individual cut-glass sections and different reflective tendencies, all crafted using a sophisticated ultraviolet embossing technique. Choose from stylish monochromes of Ivory White or Midnight Blue to burst open lights and shadows."

Oppo Mirror 5 has a 5-inch 540 x 960 qHD IPS display panel. (I would like to give credit to CellphoneS of China for all photos in this entry.)

The phone's internal hardware are pretty standard for a 2015 mid-level smartphone by an international brand. Under the hood, it runs its Color OS 2.0 skinned Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system with a Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC, has 2GB of RAM, and comes with 16GB of internal storage.

But the real highlight of this release are its two cameras.

With f/2.2 aperture lens and 1.4 um pixels size, Oppo Mirror 5's 8 MegaPixel main camera is said to have greater photo-sensitivity for low light conditions and a swifter exposure time to minimize blurring. And with its newly enhanced Pure Image 2.0+ engine, users can look forward to superior images, day in and day out.

As for the one in front, the 5 MP selfie camera comes with Beautify 3.0 technology that - according to Oppo - eliminates the need for image editing, leaving users to focus on capturing beautiful and natural selfies to share with friends and family. It also comes equipped with multiple modes, matching gender, age, and so much more.

Supporting 3G HSPA+ connectivity (PH version is not 4G-enabled) and having Dual SIM capability (the secondary nanoSIM slot also supports microSD card for expanding storage), Oppo Mirror 5 will be available at all Oppo Concept Stores, kiosks, and partner retailers across the Philippines within this month.
