The Oppo Find 5 is finally making its way to Europe! Oppo has now announced the comapny’s official European web store will open its virtual doors this Monday, May 27th.
The star of the show will be the flagship Oppo Find 5, the company’s 1080p, quad-core handset. The device will arrive contract-free for €399 with free shipping (about $515), which is fairly close to the company’s U.S. launch price of $499.
The big question is whether or not you should care. While the Oppo Find 5 was one of the first phones to feature a 1080p display, a lot has changed since the handset was first unveiled. Devices like the Sony Xperia Z, HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 all have stunning 1080p displays, alongside many other improvements and features not found with the Find 5.
In a sea of other 1080p smartphones, Oppo Find 5 might not be as unique as it was when it was first announced, but it is still a very capable handset. The Find 5 is also a good deal for those that are looking for a reasonably affordable no-contract handset, as it is cheaper than the SIM free version of devices like the HTC One (£489.95) or the Samsung Galaxy S4 (£499.95).
For those that need a refresher, the Oppo Find 5 is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and features 2GB of RAM. Other specs include 16GB storage, a 2,500 mAh battery, 1.9MP front cam and a 13MP back cam. The phone also comes standard with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
