The quad-core handset will arrive on shelves in early 2013
Today, Chinese mobile phone maker Oppo officially unveiled the long expected Oppo Find 5 smartphone, which is powered by Google’s Android operating system.The new device arrives on shelves with a large 5-inch touchscreen display, capable of delivering a full HD 1080p resolution, also its main selling point.
Furthermore, the handset is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 processor, complemented by 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory.
These specs alone make Oppo Find 5 a worthy competitor for HTC’s much praised DROID DNA / HTC Butterfly, but there’s more to it.
Oppo also packed its smartphone with a 13-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with support for full HD video recording, 120 frames per second, hardware-based HDR, and a burst mode for taking up to 100 photos per second.
At the same time, the device also features a 1.9-megapixel camera on the front, which should prove a great option when it comes to making video calls while on the go.
The handset comes to shelves with support for UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA/HSPA+/HSPA+42 (850, 1700, 1900, 2100MHz), GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900MHz) frequencies.
Moreover, it also sports the usual connectivity features in today’s high-end smartphones, including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, GPS receiver, and the like. It also comes with DIRAC’s HD Sound technology.
Oppo Find 5 will arrive on shelves with Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system loaded on it, and should also sport a series of software tweaks from the company.
According to a post on The Next Web, Oppo announced the upcoming availability of Find 5 in select markets in the beginning of the next year, but was not keen on providing further details on the matter.
The smartphone will feature a price tag of RMB 2,998 ($480 / €370) in China. It remains to be seen whether it will arrive in the United States as well, just as previously rumored.
