Chinese phone-maker Oppo has finally taken the wrapper of its much-hyped challenger to the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3: the Find 5.
Leaked and discussed for months now, the Find 5 has at long last gone golden and has been unveiled in all its glory in a new stainless steel casing featuring some of the most cutting-edge specs we’ve seen.
Undoubtedly the highlight of these is a five-inch IPS display boasting a 1080p HD display and a positively face-melting 441 pixels per inch density that blows away the iPhone 5’s 326ppi and all the rest with it. This is also fashioned from a so-called “one glass solution” (OGS) that combines the LCD layer with the glass to reduce thickness.
The camera is just as impressive, featuring a 13-megapixel sensor with an f/2.2 aperture, full HD video recording at 120 frames per second and HDR support for both stills and video.
Keeping things ticking over is a 1.5GHz quad-core chipset from Qualcomm, which is teamed with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, which is not expandable, unfortunately.
On the upside it has an impressively large 2,500mAh battery to keep the juice flowing, while on the connectivity front, there’s a whole host of options, including NFC, Bluetooth, DLNA and Wi-Fi Direct.
Sadly, 4G has been left out in favour of HSPA+, but we don’t think that should detract from what is otherwise a very impressive bit of kit that comes in a slick, slim design that measures just 8.8mm thick.
The Find 5 is expected to drop in early 2013 in select territories. According to Engadget, it will be available Stateside for $499. However, pricing and availability for the UK have yet to be confirmed. Rest assured, we’ll bring you these as soon as we have them.
