Oppo Find 5 launched in the US, 5in 1080p display, quad-core processor, 13MP cameraThere was a time, not so long ago, when dual-core 4.3in smartphones were drooled over, but things move fast in the world of mobile.

One spanking new handset sitting firmly at the current high-end is the Oppo Find 5, and it’s just been launched in the US. Massive display? Check. Super-fast processor? Check. Loads of RAM? Check.

Chinese manufacturer Oppo has officially introduced US consumers to the Find 5, describing it as “one of this year's most mysterious and anticipated mobile products”. Er, that might be a bit of a stretch, but it does sound pretty sweet.

Oppo Find 5 specs include a 5in 1080p display (441 PPI). Brilliantly, when the display is off, it becomes a “borderless sheet of pure black, mysteriously calming yet satisfying to the eye”. Best. Press release. Ever.

Other Oppo Find 5 specs include a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean), NFC (Near Field Communication), Wi-Fi Display and DLNA support for wirelessly throwing content at your TV, and a 2,500mAh battery.

Somewhat disappointingly, the Oppo Find 5 has just 16GB internal storage, with no microSD support. Why do you keep doing this to us, manufacturers?

On the plus side, the Oppo Find 5 rear camera sounds pretty mental (in a good way). It’s of the 13MP variety, and the Oppo Find 5 is the first smartphone to boast hardware supported HDR photography and video recording.

No word on an Oppo Find 5 UK release just yet. Bothered?

How much?

Only $499 in the US, apparently.

Disappointed about the battery size and no micro-sd slot, the rest looks good though

Meh, I'm still unconvinced about cheap, Chinese brands, "you get what you pay for" always comes to mind...

Is that HDR video recording? Or just rotten syntax? :p

I am also confused on this matter, does HDR video recording exist?

It's a good phone but with the lack of micro sd card and removable battery and high price i'm not interested anymore. I should have seen the price being an issue looking at their previous phones and bluray player pricing.

Anyway, now time to wait for ZTE and other manufactures to announce their variant of the 1080p superphone and see if they're any good.

Just by looking at their own publicity photo up the top there, I am somewhat dubious about the screen off "borderless sheet of pure black" claim.

It's not a photo. Manufacturers seem to be obliged to put out a pic with the screen shown like that.
