Oppo’s Impressive Find 5 Smartphone To Land In China Jan. 29, U.S. & Europe Soon After


Chinese electronics maker Oppo unveiled the Find 5, its latest flagship smartphone back in December, and it’s set to make its debyt in China later this month. The device will be available to pre-order from January 15, priced at ¥2,998 (approx. $485), and it’ll arrive on January 29. The handset is then expected to make its way to Europe and North America soon after.

The Find 5 has everything it needs to do battle with today’s high-end Android smartphones, including a 5-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, and 2GB of RAM. There’s a 1.6-megapixel camera on the front, and a 13-megapixel camera on the back that’s capable of shooting HDR photos and video.

According to Oppo, the Find 5 is the world’s first smartphone to support HDR video. It redefines smartphone video recording, with its capability of recording video in 120 FPS, five times the speed that the human eye can perceive,” the company’s release read.

Other features include a 2,500 mAh battery, NFC, and 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. About the only thing the Find 5 doesn’t have is a microSD card slot.

While the Find 5 may not be from a well-known (at least in the U.S. and Europe) smartphone manufacturer such as Samsung, LG, Motorola, or HTC, then, it’s certainly a high-end smartphone that’s well worth considering if you’re in the market for a new device. The 16GB model will be priced at $500 when it hits the U.S., while the 32GB model will cost $570.
