Oppo is a China-based phone maker that impressed us in 2012. It’s flagship smartphone is Oppo Find 5, being one of the world’s first smartphones boasting a 5-inch display with full HD resolution. The Oppo Find 5 has hit the US market at an amazing price of $499, and everyone was hopping to see it on the European store shelves, too.
Unfortunately, Oppo made an official announcement, saying that its Find 5 smartphone will not arrive on the Old Continent, well, at least not too soon. Maybe Oppo can’t manufacture enough smartphones or maybe the Chinese company doesn’t consider that the European market is big enough for its ambitions plans.
Oppo, Meizu or Huawei are companies that are very popular in their home-country and in 2013 they will probably make the step to other zones.
I remind you that Oppo Find 5 comes with a 5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and a pixel density of 441 ppi, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with Krait cores at 1.5 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage (microSD card not supported).
The smartphone runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box and the connectivity features list includes 3G (up to 21 Mbps), WiFi a/b/g/n, WiFi Direct, DLNA, WiFi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, microUSB, 3.5 mm jack, and GPS.
The 13 megapixel camera mounted on the back records videos at 1,080p at 30 fps, while the front-facing camera has a 1.9 megapixel camera. It has a 2,150 mAh battery, weighs in 165 grams, and is 8.9 mm thick.
