The Oppo Find 5 made mobile history last year, landing in September 2012 as the world’s first 1080p smartphone.
The obligatory Mini version probably won’t turn quite as many heads, as it threatens to deliver a comparatively modest 3.7in 720p display. (EDIT: update below!)
The Oppo Find 5 Mini leaks out of China, specifically via Chinese-language site My Drivers.
There’s not a whole lot of Oppo Find 5 Mini rumour meat to chew on, other than the 3.7in display size and 720p resolution. Oh, and it’ll be available in four colours, apparently; red, green, yellow and blue.
Taking a quick flight over to Italy and HDBlog.it, it’s speculated that the Oppo Find 5 Mini might land with a dual-core processor (as opposed to the quad-core unit found on the original) and 1GB of RAM (halved from the big guy).
Sadly, there seems to be some unwritten rule that says the smaller the phone, the worse the spec sheet. Not everyone is into massive-screened phones, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that someone delivers a pocket-friendly device with face-punching specs.
Alas, that phone probably won’t be the Oppo Find 5 Mini, nor is it the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini. Bah.
UPDATE: Oppo's PR chaps got in touch to say: "Unfortunately, OPPO has no plans for the release of a Find 5 Mini. We value our fans’ interest in upcoming product releases and want to make sure they have all the most up-to-date and accurate information so it would be great if you could print a correction." Er, hopefully that copy-and-paste job will do.
