The ZTE Athena may soon arrive and claim the ‘world’s thinnest smartphone’ crown, but until then the Oppo Finder is it, having grabbed the title from the Huawei Ascend P1 S. And while the ZTE Athena is nothing but a leaked codename at this point, and the Huawei Ascend P1 S still hasn’t shipped anywhere, the Oppo Finder is on its way to the market.
The Chinese market, that is. Starting today, you can pre-order one for the pretty low price of 2,498 yuan, which amounts to $393 or €313 at the current exchange rates. The pre-order window will close at 11:59 pm on June 24. Shipping will start on July 1.
So what do you get for that cash? A 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen, a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of built-in storage space, an 8 MP rear camera with dual-LED flash and 1080p video recording, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera with 720p video recording, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and of course, that record-breaking (at least for now) 6.65 mm thickness.
It’s oppo.com for those of you who are in China and would like to get one of these puppies as soon as possible.
