Oppo AX5s is official. It is joining the AX5 in the Chinese smartphone maker’s mid-range portfolio in Taiwan. Notably, the Oppo AX5 is known as Oppo A5 in various markets around the world, including India, so it is safe to assume that AX5s will debut as A5s in other countries. The Oppo AX5s is quite similar to the AX5 (Oppo A5) and the only major difference between the two models is the presence of Helio P35 SoC in the AX5s, instead of the Snapdragon 450 SoC, which is the present in AX5. Unfortunately, for now, Oppo has not detailed the Oppo AX5s price in Taiwan – though we can expect this to be revealed soon.
