Last month, Chinese mobile phone maker Oppo made official a new handset running under Google’s Android operating system, one that arrives on shelves with a full HD touchscreen display on the front, namely the Oppo Find 5.The handset was announced for the Chinese market, yet it seems that the company is also considering its launch in the United States.
According to a recent article on Engadget, the handset vendor has already listed the phone on its US website, and plans on launching it in the country unlocked and SIM-free.
The Android-based mobile phone is expected to feature a price tag of $499 attached to it, contract-free, which will certainly make it one of the most appealing handsets available in the United States.
After all, the DROID DNA by HTC, which sports a similar 5-inch 1080p touchscreen display, is available at Verizon for $600 contract-free.
For those out of the loop, we should note that Oppo Find 5 was made official with a quad-core APQ8064 chipset inside, as well as with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory.
At the same time, the smartphone packs a 12-megapixel photo snapper on the back, which should offer support for 1080p video recording, as well as a 2-megapixel camera on the front, great for making video calls while on the go.
The specs list of this smartphone also includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, along with NFC capabilities, built-in GPS receiver, the usual set of sensors, and a thin body.
The Android smartphone is powered by a 2,500mAh battery and should provide users with support for the 3G networks of AT&T and T-Mobile when made available for purchase.
The smartphone runs under Google’s Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system, and features support for the hundreds of thousands of applications and games available for purchase through the Google Play Store. Stay tuned for more on the matter.
