Oppo Find 5 phone

Oppo has revealed details of its Find 5 smartphone, one of the world's first phones to sport a 1080p full HD screen.

The Oppo Find 5 will also include Dirac HD sound technology, the company responsible for the popular Dirac HD Player app.

The necessary 1920 x 1080 pixels will be squeezed in to a 5in screen, making for a class-leading 440 pixels per inch.

Also on board the Oppo phone will be the Android Jelly Bean 4.1 OS, a 13-megapixel camera and the ability to record 1080p video.

It will also come with 2GB RAM, a 1.5GHz processor and 16GB storage, plus support for DLNA. Certainly on paper, the Oppo Find 5 sounds mighty impressive.

The Find 5 is set for release in China initially, though Oppo promises "selected markets" will get the phone in early 2013, reports The Next Web

Oppo is better known in the UK for its DVD and Blu-ray players, which aim to major on sound quality and universal format compatibility.

Oppo itself is based in China, and is headquartered in Guangdong: Oppo Digital, Inc is its US subsidiary, and is indeed based in California.

i've wondered for a while if this Oppo was the same company that made the blu-ray players... the blu-ray players are certainly great.. i thought they were a US based company though in california?

1% difference is hardley taking over and that can all change in the next 12 month as windows phones seems to be doing very well

Android taking over ?

Having used both I would go for S111 over an iPhone5. But then the functions on the phone are more important to me like the camera/video than the apps. If you are more into games and apps (I am not) then the iPhone still has the edge. By the time this phone comes out that too may have changed, in which case I would have no hesitation in going for this phone once I have seen it in the flesh.

 

Sounds like THE Android phone to have... were I ever to switch from my iPhone.

Their reputation with reference audio/videophile BluRay players has certainly put them in a good position in the eye of the consumer.
