Although not the very first, Chinese phone maker Oppo will release a five inch full HD smartphone on December 12th. The device, which is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 Quad Core 1.5GHz CPU and a Qualcomm Adreno320 GPU, will sell for around $480 in China. Several Chinese international re-sellers are also already advertising the phone for around $599 for those in the west.
As well as the quad core CPU and full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display, your 600 bucks get you Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of flash storage, GPS & A-GPS and a 12 megapixel camera. The phone can take two SIM cards, one for GSM and one for GSM+3G, however the 3G frequencies might not cover the ones in your geographical location. It supports 850/1900/2100MHz and the key missing number is 900MHz, which lots of countries in Europe use.
If you don’t fancy a Chinese grey import, then there is of course the HTC J Butterfly (also known as DLX / DROID DNA) and there are rumors of upcoming full HD phones from Samsung (Galaxy S4), LG (Optimus G2), and ZTE (Nubia 5).
There is an Oppo Find 5 promotional video out there, it is all in Chinese but it is still quite fun to watch:

What about the thinness, is it still as thinn as they claimed?
It is believed to be 6.9 mm thin! That makes it 0.5cm thinner than an iPhone 5!
Suck on that, Apple :D that’s pretty impressive for such powerful device, I hope it has great build quality (just hoping, not believing).
Does Oppo have their own skin?
Are there any pictures of the device? The pictures in this post show two different phones with different sized bezels. Is either one of these pictures official?

I assure you..most probably never.
