Oppo Find 5 confirmed with 1080p display and S4 Pro processor, release date and pricing still unknown

by: AdrianSeptember 26, 2012

LG’s Optimus G might get the honor of being the first ever Snapdragon S4 Pro-powered phone to enjoy a wide release, but it shouldn’t take long for its awesome spec sheet to be undercut by a different device.

The long rumored HTC phablet (now believed to get to carry the Nexus torch) will most likely be a very strong contender for the title of world’s most powerful smartphone, but we should also keep an eye on the more exotic Pantech Vega R3, Xiaomi Mi-Two, and Oppo Find 5.

We haven’t heard much about the Mi-Two lately and the Vega R3 has only popped up a couple of days ago, so the two seem like long-shot contenders after all. The Oppo Find 5, on the other hand, appears to garner more attention by the day, with the rumor mill grinding more than once during the past few weeks.

But you can’t keep on feeding tech users with rumors, or else they’ll become bored, so it was only natural to expect some official things to be cleared up about the Find 5. Fortunately, Oppo understood that very well, so we can finally say the Find 5 has an official set of features.

The spec sheet is far from complete, but the details known right now are explosive, being quickly listed below:

  • 5-inch display with a 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution and a 441 PPI pixel density
  • Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • 12 MP rear-facing camera
  • 2,500 mAh battery
  • 6.65 mm thickness

As impressive as these specs are, they don’t come as a surprise anymore, being revealed to us in a less official manner about a week ago. That doesn’t mean we can’t still be excited about that one-of-a-kind 1080p display or the S4 Pro/Jelly Bean combo, not to mention the pretty hefty 2,500mAh battery.

One detail that is a surprise however is the 6.65mm “waist” of this beast, which could be a record – at least for such a humongous device. That is the same thickness rocked by the Oppo Finder, the 4.3-incher launched some time back and proclaimed “the world’s thinnest smartphone.” We don’t know exactly how sturdy and solid the Find 5 will manage to be in these conditions, but in terms of portability and style it should be booming.

The mystery on the pricing and availability departments is still at heights, which is a bit frustrating, but hopefully Oppo is smart enough to understand that the timeframe for riding the wave of popularity is a very short one for phones coming from not very established names in the industry.

How much time are you still willing to give the Oppo Find 5 before an eventual release? A month? Two? Three? Six months?

  • Kinda looks like those iphone concepts huh?

    C- for originality, but A++ for clever business move.
    It’s a waste leaving good concepts lying around waiting for Apple to pick it up, why not make it happen? with Android :)

      iPhone concepts = what people wants
      Apple iPhone = boring things that people buy because they are told to. By Apple.

      They might also be waiting for Apple to sue them.

  • MasterMuffin

    super cool, but they have to sacrifice something to make it that thin

    • Sondre Krumsvik

      Build quality?

      • MasterMuffin

        Yep, paper thin plastic, but there must be something else that they haveto leave out…

  • Peterson Silva

    Heeeeeeeeeey sexy smartphone!
    Oppo Gangnam Style =)

  • humanoid

    specs sound very similar to htc one x5 but thinner… 2500 mah battery is not that good for a device that should use that much battery life.

  • Jo’el Frazier

    kinda looks like the ipod touch

  • red

    it has the thickness of ipod touch
    iphone 4 concept
    Galaxy 3 spirit

    everything is perfect excep thet screen may be to big and the camara looks like a tumor coming out of a great phone.

  • Price is also confirmed, it will be around $350. How cool is that??!! :-) :-) :-)

    • phacepalm

      There is absolutely, positively NO way it will be $350. Where did you hear that? Or you just trollin’?

  • tBs_Battousai

    If its not shipping by christmas people will be bored and forget about it looking for the next big thing…

  • Marco Costa

    Wait how dare they to make a rectangle with rounded corners?!
    I can see judge Kho already rubbing her hand together thinking about the iCheque going her way.

  • markt9002

    The actual device looks nothing like an iPhone, and it will probably sell for $499 USD.
