Oppo Find 5 almost ready to challenge Samsung and HTC in the phablet market
HTC has beaten Oppo to the punch in unveiling the world’s first 5 inch smartphone with a Full HD (1920 x 1080) display, as it announced the J Butterfly earlier today in Japan. However, Oppo seems to be almost ready to debut its Find 5 handset, of which we’ve heard several times until now.
The Oppo Find 5 has been spotted in a live photo that shows a white version of it.
According to Chinese website MyDrives, the Find 5 should be released in November in China, for prices starting at 2,998 CNY (about $480) – 16GB version.
Like the Japan-bound HTC J Butterfly – which could be launched internationally as the HTC One X, or Google Nexus 5 – the Oppo Find 5 has a 5 inch screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels and 440ppi, quad-core Snapdragon processor, and 2GB of RAM. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a 12MP rear camera, a 2,500 mAh battery, and a 6.9mm thin case complete the feature list.
With these specs, at $480 the Find 5 is worth every penny, and will be a menace to HTC’s 5 inch smartphone, as well as to Samsung’s Galaxy Note II. Unfortunately, there’s no word if Oppo is planning to offer the new handset outside China. But we’ll let you know when we have more details on this.
