Oppo has sent out invites for the launch event of the Oppo Find 5, scheduled for December 12 in Beijing, and we’ve just got ours. The Find 5 is expected to arrive by the end of the year in China, and shapes out to be a very exciting device.
Like other up and coming Chinese electronics manufacturers, Oppo is a young company that’s relatively unknown in the West. If you are curious about the company’s history, Oppo has recently released a short introductory video that will take you through its journey.
When it was first announced, we heard that the Oppo Find 5 would be a record-breaking 6.65 thick, but it has been creeping up in size since. Now the word is that the Oppo Find 5 will be 8 or even 9mm thick.
The Oppo Finder joinks the ranks of the world’s thinnest smartphones with the latest flavor of Android, version 4.1 Jelly Bean, through an official though still unfinished software upgrade that is available for download now.
Everybody might be talking about the iPhone 5 right now and how it stacks up against the competition of the Samsung Galaxy S3 or HTC One X, but in just a few short months we might have an entire new set of contenders for the title of the world’s fastest smartphone.
Less than 48 hours have passed since Apple announced the iPhone 5, which means we’re barely at the start of all the media coverage we can expect this device to receive from the tech press. One thing people are discussing is Apple’s claim that the iPhone 5 is “the thinnest smartphone in the world”.
After releasing two of the world’s thinnest phones, Oppo is about to launch another great 5-inch phone that will feature 1080p display, 441 PPI, and a quad core S4 Pro processor.
You should know the drill by now: to create some online buzz for phone X, upload video of said phone being used as a hammer, or being blended and microwaved. The list of gadget-torturing activities goes on. Why should it be any different for the current holder of world’s thinnest smartphone, the Oppo Finder? Just because the phone is 6.65mm thin doesn’t mean it cannot handle a little bit of pressure test. Will the Oppo Finder succeed or will it crack under pressure? We’re going to go ahead and spoil the result for you. The Oppo Finder managed to survive…
Android smartphones nowadays feature dual-core and even quad-core processors that need ever larger, more powerful batteries to keep the device running. One would think that because of these increasing requirements, handheld devices would become bulkier. But the trend has fortunately been in the opposite direction, with manufacturers looking to cram as much as they can in the smallest amount of space. At one point, the Huawei Ascend P1S at 7.7 mm was considered the slimmest in the world, as claimed by the Chinese company back in January during CES, until the Oppo Finder burst onto the scene. Granted, there are…
Just when you thought the Oppo Finder and its 6.65mm chassis is about to clinch the world’s thinnest smartphone title, along comes another contender that will have Oppo scrambling to go to the gym and do a double check in front of the vanity mirror. ZTE is here to spoil the party for Oppo, by introducing a 6.2mm thick phone that is, for now, known as the Athena. The ZTE Athena was first spotted in Sina Weibo, where a number of pictures were shared by the company’s director. Though they didn’t come with any specs, a source told Engadget that…
