Oppo Find 5 set for January 29th release in China
After the initial Chinese launch it is expected that the device will become available in the US. In December the company confirmed, on its Facebook page, that the Find 5 will be available in the U.S. There is still some confusion over its official release in Europe. Current reports imply that during the first three months of this year it will be released in Canada, UK, Spain, Australia, Germany, France, Belgium, Malaysia, Sweden, Singapore, Finland, Greece, Denmark, New Zealand, Norway, Japan and Hong Kong.
The problem with a European release is that the stylish quad-core phone only supports 3G on 850, 1700, 1900 and 2100MHz. The key missing frequency for Europe is 900Mhz. Most of the networks in France and Finland use 900Mhz alongside 2100Mhz , also 900Mhz networks can be found in Demark, Poland, Romania and the UK.
For those who want to get their hands on the device before its official release outside of China, there are plenty of Chinese wholesalers who are taking orders now for the Oppo 5 with worldwide shipping available.
