February 2012: Mobot’s Jimmy Martinez dismisses the notion of a 1080p smartphone (originally rumoured for the Samsung Galaxy S3) as “a bit of a Holy Grail”. September 2012: Martinez relays word of the Oppo Find 5 (pictured), the world’s first 1080p smartphone; observes that the industry is moving at an outrageous pace.
Today, May 2013: Lewis Curdie writes a few hundred words about the Oppo Find 5’s successor.
Chinese manufacturer Oppo is in much the same boat as South Korean counterpart LG, in the sense that they’re both tasked with improving upon phones that are – on paper, at least – pretty much top of the range.
Like the LG Optimus G2, the Oppo Find 5’s successor (which hasn’t been named yet, incidentally) is tipped to adopt the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
Another feature tipped for the next Oppo Find 5 is an 8MP front – yes, front – camera. Upping the front megapixel count is becoming somewhat of a thing over in China.
Finally, storage and RAM are the same as the existing Oppo Find 5 (i.e. 32GB and 2GB), while the display will probably (I’m completely speculating here) creep up to 5.5in.
The Oppo Find 5 successor is purely at the rumour stage at present. Needless to say we'll relay fresh rumour juice just as soon as it's poured.
