The Oppo Find 5 is something that has recently come into the scene, and especially from the Chinese market. It boasts the 5-inch capacitive touchscreen with an HD display with 1920 x 1080 pixels Full HD screen resolution, and there would be a quad-core 1.5GHz chipset, supported by 2GB RAM.

We would go into the full detailed specifications later on when the manufacturer officially releases it, but till then we even have the news that there is going to be a 12-megapixel lens on the rear side, and a 3mm bezel would surround the display on the front side. One of the most challenging news for the other devices in the above list would be the thickness of the phone, as the Oppo Find 5 would be having a thickness of just 6.9mm, beating all the devices in the list of phones having screens of 5-inch or larger.

There is going to be a support of 2500 mAh battery, and the camera would be having a flash below it.

    Hello whoever has published this article must work a bit more on your facts and features.
    Galaxy note has a battery of 2500mah, not a 2150mah.
    Galaxy note 2 has a 2gb ram, not 1gb.
