We covered it earlier in the month in talking about its stupidly high 441ppi pixel density.
But now the Oppo Find 5 is gaining wider recognition for finally delivering the promised land of a full HD 1080p display to the smartphone market for the first time.
This just six months after I dismissed talk of the Samsung Galaxy S III featuring the same simply because the market just wasn't there yet. Shows how quickly things can change.
Just to revisit Lewis' original piece on the subject, the Find 5 is Chinese brand Oppo's second mention in these pages in recent months after the similarly named Finder's claim to fame – still unconquered, as far as we know (and Tim Cook doesn't) – as the world's slimmest smartphone at 6.65mm thick.
Given the vagaries of translations it seems the Find 5 is the same or a similar device, so named for its 5in display, which really makes it one of those “phablet” type devices and barely worthy of the smartphone label at all.
But smartphone it is – technically – and that oversize panel does indeed squeeze in 1920 x 1080 pixels, dwarfing the “class-leading” pixel density counts of the iPhone 5 (326ppi), Nokia Lumia 920 (332ppi) and Sony Xperia S (342ppi).
The rest of the spec is pretty smart too, and includes a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 12-megapixel camera.
No chance of the Find 5 finding its way to these shores (though if Oppo keeps hitting the radars of the international tech press surely the company should start thinking bigger than just its local market), but considering we're already hearing talk of the next-genSamsung Galaxy S IV, maybe this time around Samsung will make the 1080p grade on its flagship Android smartphone?
