Now this would make many wonder, are there any thinner smartphones than this one? The Oppo Find 5 Android Phone would be another 5-inch touchscreen phone in the market, competing a few strong ones like the Galaxy Note and Note II, the Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500 and a couple others, but this one is real thin, having a thickness of mere 6.9mm. The device was earlier in the rounds of rumors, but now is a reality with the pictures and specifications put out. Looking at this device, we got a feeling no one would complain about the large and uncomfortable screens any more.
The Oppo Find 5 comes with a 5-inch FullHD resolution display and it has a 3mm bezel around it. The device would be having a Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-core chipset that clocks the speed at 1.5 GHz and that would be quite enough to hold the heavy work with a 2GB RAM too. The body is made of aluminum and it would have a unibody design, thus the battery is not removable though the company boasts a heavy battery with 2500 mAh capacity. We expect the battery to take up most of the space, because the thickness of 6.9mm won’t surely hold a small battery and the huge battery is a necessity when it has to support the heavy graphics in the display which has a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
The Oppo Find 5 has got a 12 Megapixel camera with a Sony backlit sensor and the advantage being in the looks that it doesn’t have an extra bulge for the camera, and the lens is embedded in the body, to keep the flat continuity of the back panel. Keeping all these specs in mind, there is a similar device that could come into the comparison, i.e. the HTC J, but this device is only for the Japan users and thus no global recognition.
There would be Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system pre-installed and going with the pictures that we found, the interface looks quite neat and totally productive with the lock screen having neatly placed notifications for unread messages and missed calls. The device looks sleek on the back too, with the camera lens placed in the center top, and below that is where the flash is placed.
The Oppo device comes in 16GB and 32GB versions, priced at 3000 Chinese yuan (about US$475) and 3300 Chinese yuan (about US$520). The good news is that this won’t be a just-for-Chinese device and it can be internationally shipped to the European and Western countries and there are networks which would support the standards of the phone.
Comparing the thickness of the Oppo Find 5 with the other high-end 5-inch touchscreen devices:
There was a recent news through a few sources that the electronics manufacturer Sharp is also going an all-round production of 5-inch phones and so we are going to see a lot of devices with similar sized screens, which would no more be uncommon and uncomfortable for anyone to use. It all started from Galaxy Note (or the Dell Streak 5?) and now we have some tough competitors in the list.
