Oppo today announced the Mirror 5, a new Android smartphone with a rather dazzling backside. The blue-and-white handset features a reflective, diamond-like surface designed with cut-glass segments, as well as a 5-inch display. The dual-SIM Mirror 5 runs ColorOS 2.1, Oppo's custom UI based on Android 5.1, and is powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor. Its internals are held together by a "bi-metallic frame and cross beams" for extra strength and durability, according to Oppo. The Chinese manufacturer is also touting the phone's photography features, which include a photo burst-like function along with time lapse and GIF-making modes, though its prism design is most eye-catching.
