OPPO K5 is Official with VOOC 4.0 and Quad Camera Setup
The smartphone’s biggest highlight is its charging technology. The K5 does indeed support VOOC 4.0 flash charging; making it OPPO’s first product to use the new 30W VOOC. This allows the user to charge the smartphone’s 4000mAh capacity battery to 67% in just 30 minutes, which means it’s around 12% faster than the already quick VOOC 3.0 charging tech. Additionally, OPPO claims that you can charge the K5 from 2% to 47% in 30 minutes and do it while playing games on the device.
Aside from the charging technology which is at flagship’s levels, the OPPO K5 comes with the hardware you’d expect on a mid-ranger these days. That means we find a good Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, along with up to 8GB of RAM and a maximum of 256GB of internal storage. Meanwhile, the display is 6.44-inch in size and sports a resolution of 2340×1080, basically Full HD+.

Moving onto the back of the device, we have a quad camera setup. This includes a main 64MP image sensor with f/1.7 aperture along with an 8MP ultra wide angle camera. We then find two very unique cameras: a black&white and a film style lens one. OPPO claims that these two cameras can bring more distinctive portrait snaps compared to ordinary sensors. Finally, we have a 32MP selfie snapper at the front which supports pixel binning technology for cleaner selfies at night.
In terms of price, the OPPO K5 in its 6GB+128GB version is priced at 1899 yuan ($260); the 8GB+128GB version will cost 2099 yuan ($290), while the 8GB+256GB variant will be up for 2499 yuan ($350). The smartphone is available in three colors: fantasy forest, cyber metal and polar sunlight; and it does feature NFC.
