Haven’t had enough of the meaningless battle for the world’s thinnest and slimmest smartphone? Here’s another contender for the title with a little twist. This particular little guy doesn’t claim to be the absolute thinnest phone around, but “only” the thinnest quad-core Android gadget.
Unsurprisingly, the Find5 X909 (terrible, terrible name, I know) comes from Oppo, a Chinese manufacturer known to most of you for releasing another world’s thinnest smartphone wannabe, the Finder.
Unlike the Finder, the Find5 has something going for it other than the design and should come with one of the most impressive spec sheets ever. With a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor and 2 GB of RAM under the hood, the future 4.5-incher clearly looks like a powerhouse.
That’s not all though, because the X909 is also supposed to run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upon launch and feature a 12 MP rear-facing shooter, a 2 MP front-facing webcam, a 2,500 mAh battery, and 16 or 32 GB of on-board memory.
We’re unsure if the battery’s capacity will be enough to withstand the “pressures” of such a powerful chipset, but other than that I don’t think you could have anything to complain about. The 4.5-inch touchscreen is also supposed to come with full HD resolution, so the spec sheet is absolutely dreamy.
Before starting to get your hopes up, you should not take all those features for granted, as they have been revealed by IT168.com and haven’t been officially confirmed by Oppo. There’s also a very slim chance for the phone, if real, to ever make it outside Asia. To be fair though, we said the same thing about Xiaomi’s powerhouse only to hear soon after that the “beast” could come to Europe after all.
We know nothing about the X909’s Chinese release date and pricing just yet, but if it will, in fact, come with Android Jelly Bean on board, we probably have at least one or two months of waiting in store. And I know that everyone hates waiting, but in this particular case I would personally not mind giving Oppo as much time as they need to get the ultra-slim super-phone ready for launch.
Do you agree? Will you be adding this Find5 phone to your wishlist of soon to buy gadgets? How much would you be willing to pay for it?
