Oppo, a company that’s best known for home entertainment equipment, has been busy preparing what could be one of the most exciting phones of this year, or next. We’re talking about the Oppo Find 5, and if it arrives with the spec sheet that’s being suggested, it’ll be an amazing device.
The main feature is the touchscreen, which will measure 5-inches, making the Find 5 more of a smartphone/tablet hybrid than a smartphone, but it’s the resolution that truly impresses — 1080p with a 441 pixel per inch density.
That’s 1920 x 1080 and more than the iPhone 5 — 1136 x 640 — and more than the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 — both 1280 x 720, or 720p. Depending when the phone goes on sale, it could be the first phone to boast such a screen.
Powering the phone will be a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, along with 2GB of RAM, a 12 megapixel camera plus Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be the operating system. As if all that wasn’t enough, the Find 5 is said to be a mere 6.65mm thick, making it Oppo’s second phone after the Finder to achieve such a measurement.
A 2,500mAh battery will be providing the juice for all this tech, and even at that size, we’re not sure how much standby time it’ll be able to muster.
At this point, while the phone has been more or less confirmed by Oppo, there’s been no official announcement and no release date provided. Oppo isn’t all that big in Europe either, so there’s a chance keen buyers will have to import it if they’re set on owning one.
Oppo isn’t the only company working on a 1080p display though, as HTC is rumoured to be preparing the HTC One X5, and LG has recently said it has a working prototype of a 5-inch 1080p display too.
