As OPPO puts it, the Mirror 5 is an interpretation of its design philosophy, which is “wisdom and innovation, shining above the ordinary.” The shiny new smartphone features a unique diamond-like mirrored back panel made with “individual cut-glass segments consisting of different reflective properties.”


Looking at the specs, the Mirror 5 doesn’t immediately impress. It comes with a 5 inch qHD display, a 64-bit quad core Snapdragon 410 processor and 2GB of RAM. To attract potential buyers though, the smartphone is banking on its impressive 8MP camera with a large f/2.2 aperture, wide-angle lens and a handful of camera modes.

The OPPO Mirror 5 comes in blue and white colors. It is now available in stores for PHP 9,990.
