Oppo Find 5 official - Full HD screen, steel frame, and Exmor RS camera with HDR video
OPPO Find 5 Unveiled With 5" 1080P Screen, 13 Megapixel HDR Camera and More
BEIJING －December 12, 2012 －At the OPPO Find 5 "The Fifth Element" Launch Event held in 798 Art District today, OPPO introduced one of this year's most mysterious and anticipated mobile products, the OPPO Find 5. The all new, industry leading OPPO Find 5 was announced to an audience of over 500 members of the international press, OPPO fans, developers, and partners, in what marks a spectacular end of year for the mobile industry.
See - like you've been blind all along
The OPPO Find 5 features a 5.0" 1080p IPS screen with a staggering 441 PPI pixel density, allowing you to experience a world of crystal clarity and the most realistic colors. With OGS technology that combines touch sensors with display, colors are more vivid and lifelike, and you'll feel as if the screen contents are floating on its surface.
Despite its large screen, the OPPO Find 5 is easy to hold thanks to its super slim 3.25mm bezel. When the screen is off, the front becomes a borderless sheet of pure black, mysteriously calming yet satisfying to the eye.
Touch - and your fingers won't stop
Industrial design has always been one of OPPO's core strengths. An example is the Find 5 front frame. Although it only weighs a mere 6.3 grams, the front frame alone takes four hours to craft. Starting with a 210 gram piece of stainless steel, it undergoes 12 manufacturing processes, after which it is given a black chrome plating in a 1470 °F (800 °C) vacuum environment. The result from this demanding process not only protects the screen from impact, it also contributes to the Find 5's amazing look and feel.
The overall design of the Find 5 is minimalist, relying on straight lines and simple shapes that removes distractions, while at the same time being built using the best materials and techniques available, giving OPPO Find 5 a simple and understated, yet refined and premium look and feel.
Cherish and share, the beauty from every journey
On the backside, OPPO Find 5 comes with the most advanced 1/3.06-type 13-megapixel camera sensor available on the market, adept at taking great photos in low light conditions. With market-leading Stacked CMOS technology, it features an f/2.2 aperture, 4-layer coating and blue glass filters. On the front, Find 5 it is fitted with a 1.9-megapixel camera.
OPPO Find 5 is the world's first smartphone with hardware supported HDR photography and video recording. It redefines smartphone video recording, with its capability of recording video in 120 FPS, five times the speed that the human eye can perceive. Apart from videos being silky smooth in normal playback, they will also be smooth during slow-motion playback and clear during freeze-frames. In addition, the camera on the Find 5 is capable of taking 100 photos at 5 per second with Burst Mode.
OPPO Find 5 will bring you into a new era of wireless sharing. With NFC functionality, gently touching two phones will pair them in less than a tenth of a second, 50 times faster than Bluetooth pairing. OPPO's NFC SmartTags with preset actions will add simplicity and convenience to your life. Find 5 also supports Wi-Fi Display and DLNA, two technologies that allow you to wirelessly project screen contents onto your television in HD.
Listen, and rhythm will touch your heart
Find 5 comes with the powerful Dolby 3D surround sound technology and the exciting Dirac HD technology, combination of hardware and software usually only found in high-end audio and cinema sound systems. With Dirac, you will clearly hear a difference, and become immersed in music the way the artist originally wanted to express it.
Love, for it is the Fifth Element
OPPO never set out to create the most powerful phone. Internally, we have always said that we create products in the intersection of romance and technology, and Find 5 is a product that OPPO employees worked passionately and relentlessly on. Just like Plato was convinced of quintessence, an element beyond thematerial world, there is more to the Find 5 than the mere sum of its parts. There is an element beyond the purely rational, and that element is love. OPPO Find 5 is infused with of our love, a love we wish to explore with the world.
OPPO Find 5 is set to launch in early 2013 across selected markets.

It looks fantastic and the specs are fantastic. Could be a winner!
30. jaytai0106 (Posts: 1328; Member since: 30 Mar 2011)
This def will have a lot of people drooling over. Hopefully to see a career to pick it up. I still would like to see 3000+mAh battery in this baby. Since it has a beautiful 5" screen and I would probably never lock it >"

The problem is that other than samsung & may be htc nocompany stands for its cell phones as regards software but i have no doubt that this will be one of the best cell phones from the aspect of hardware esp. the camera which i expect it to be the best on the surface by the time it's realeased.

Again crippled by storage?!?
Can't believe that logic!
With an SD slot this would've EASILY been the best phone on the planet
8. MeoCao (unregistered)
It's easy to understand, this lack of storage appeals to carriers and small players like Oppo need strong support from the carriers to sell their phones.
42. cityeighteen (Posts: 40; Member since: 28 Mar 2012)
Why would a lack of storage appeal to carriers? That just seems to go against all logic. I'm not doubting the fact that it is indeed the case (see AT&T's version of the HTC One XL), but I just don't understand why
48. MeoCao (unregistered)
The less storage the phone has, the more the user has to connect to the carriers network for content, so the carriers earn more.
25. someones4 (Posts: 619; Member since: 16 Sep 2012)
Storage is always the Achilles Heel for flagship devices.
Guess an sd slot is too much to ask. I was really hoping that this will be my new phone.
4. tiara6918 (Posts: 1453; Member since: 26 Apr 2012)
I like what oppo did with the design of the find5!
5. MeoCao (unregistered)
This is similar to Butterfly design but not as sexy, but the specs is better and much cheaper.
Looks very promising, but Oppo has announced many crazy phones before and released nothing so we have to wait and see.
26. someones4 (Posts: 619; Member since: 16 Sep 2012)
Really? i thought this looks better than the butterfly. The rounded design of htc can't compete with the oppo. Looks like a thin lumia.
6. kevkyle (Posts: 71; Member since: 21 Oct 2012)
I covet thee my queen....ye shall sit next to my Droid DNA ( aka Butterfly - eew)
.....and earnestly wait for my princely Sony Odin :-)
7. rgxVOiD (Posts: 435; Member since: 30 Aug 2012)
Looks nice, looks like Xperia S without the transparent bar and squished into a thinner package,
10. Igneel (unregistered)
I think manufacturers should consider making a smartphone with a spec like their flagships but in smaller size. I like big screens but I think 5" is overkill. At least pity the people with small hands

cool deign ....
what would it cost in china itself ?
12. AndroidFreud (Posts: 3; Member since: 11 Oct 2012)
Big FAIL!!! A full HD phone with just 16GB storage and NO expandable micro sd card slot!!! Why did they put all this amazing tech in and do that!? I was waiting MONTHS for this phone :(
I wanted this phone so badly - I was willing to forgive the non-removable battery but no micro sd card is also a security issue. I save all my personal stuff on my external micro sd storage so if the phone ever did conk out or something and I cannot turn it on, I can always manually remove the micro sd and drop it off for service with any unknown person in peace. This trend of no micro sd's is really shameful for the phone industry, especially when Sammy has shown us it's possible to have a slim profile and yet have removable micro sd and battery.
Hope Samsung's S4 adopts this design language (sharp edged corners that are more business like and not soft pansy pebble shaped round corners) with all the high end specs. That would be a kill-them-all S4
C'MON PEOPLE!!! DON'T ENCOURAGE THIS NO EXPANDABLE MICRO SD SH!T!!!
15. tango_charlie (Posts: 87; Member since: 16 Nov 2011)
That is really a pity. Maybe a wifi drive is an option for you? Or devices with generate a "cloud" like the iusbport. That is not the cheapest and best solution, but then again it's an option to get along with.
27. someones4 (Posts: 619; Member since: 16 Sep 2012)
I second that. Will have to wait for the sony odin or galaxy s4.
Also to Mr.tango_charlie: by right, the manufacturers should cater to the customers' needs. We shouldn't have to bother ourselves to get around this inconvenience. No offence, but that's a job for Apple customers
28. TreyTreyTaylor (Posts: 310; Member since: 21 Dec 2010)
I said this before and ill say it again. Why are we moving backwards in storage? Its inexcusable. My Droid X from two years ago came with 8gb internal and an included 16gb memory card but with a 1ghz processor. Now sh*t like the DNA has quad core processors but a measly 11gigs to do something. How couldn't they understand how dumb this is. Guess what? Vice City, Need for Speed, and Modern Combat 4 add up to about 7 gigs. Thats just three top notch games. And this memory is supposed to be shared with all media on the phone? Even on my note 2 I ran out of memory in 2 days. But the blessing of the note 2 with it's memory card slot is that I can use a mod from xda to make my 64gb card my internal. Its a POSSIBILITY that comes with just having the slot there in the first place. Wake up HTC, OPPO, LG, and GOOGLE!!
13. tango_charlie (Posts: 87; Member since: 16 Nov 2011)
120 fps video capture, but just 16GB (13GB available for user). Nice going Oppo. This is like buying a super sports car with a 10l fuel tank. So that will be a very short "joyride".
14. Thephonegeek (Posts: 118; Member since: 22 Nov 2012)
Only samsung phones are fully complete. Almost all other brand makes flawed flagships.
23. lallolu (Posts: 240; Member since: 18 Sep 2012)
That is so true. The only shortcoming of samsung is in the material used not being premium. However, the plastic used does not look or feel bad at all.
31. lovefist (unregistered)
actually it feels bad and looks bad. but they still complete my checklist aside from build quality. sd card and removable battery.

Oppo Android style

Oppo Gandroid style
17. BadAssAbe (Posts: 434; Member since: 22 Apr 2011)
$150 more for a bigger and better screen with a better camera but slower updates.
Everything must complete with the Nexus 4
19. wando77 (Posts: 302; Member since: 23 Aug 2012)
Would have had this were it not for the crippled storage
21. wando77 (Posts: 302; Member since: 23 Aug 2012)
Dual led flash too..... SUCH a shame about the storage :-(
22. wando77 (Posts: 302; Member since: 23 Aug 2012)
I can't wait for 5mp front facing cameras with a flash on the front too
29. Kevro_86 (Posts: 11; Member since: 19 Oct 2011)
Just think how fast 1080P video at 120 fps will chew through that 16GB of internal storage. These manufacturers should start surveying their customers. People like to be able to select their memory inexpensively (micro SD). AND, if the phone totally craps out, gets smashed, etc... They want to be able to actually remove their micro SD card and go their merry way. How much can it possible add to the cost of a phone to include micro SD functionality?!? High speed 64GB micro SD cards can be readily had for
32. lovefist (unregistered)
I agree. If they dont want to sacrifice the device being bulky by adding sd card slot, they should've put 64gb. HTC upped the storage of the One X+ without changing the dimensions.
33. jibraihimi (Posts: 695; Member since: 29 Nov 2011)
Really I can't believe the logic behind just 16GB internal memory and no memory card slot............... Everything about this phone is great except internal memory, they should have asked HTC for their experience with One x. HTC has become wiser now has launched HTC Butterfly with memory card slot.......... I just want to ask Oppo that what is the use of 120fps recording or FullHD recording or Full HD video playback in it device, if we can store more than two fullHD movies in our smartphones, and since 4G hasn't reached every country of the world, so cloud is not an option for majority of people, as uploading files of big size would be reall pain............ So Oppo there is still some time, try to increase internal memory or add micro sd card slot on this device........
34. Captain_Doug (Posts: 769; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
No on screen keys? Why can no one include them?
35. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2459; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
Don't show this to Wendy. We don't want her getting eye cancer.
38. redmd (Posts: 896; Member since: 26 Oct 2011)
no micro sd slot = one customer lost. this will be the standard flagship setup in 2013 so buyers will have more options.
40. lauremar (Posts: 181; Member since: 29 Feb 2012)
Maybe Oppo will be a contender to design the next Nexus device? I hope Google considers it and if they pick them and do build it, I'd definietely buy it! I like Oppo's clean, polished and expensive-looking designs on their devices.
45. MC1123 (Posts: 1243; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
people! you should be wise enough!!!
HTC DNA/Butterfly offers the same thing but it is a well known brand! while this, its an unknown and only boom in china but want to buy this?
but indeed its a good looking device!
46. Baseballer (Posts: 132; Member since: 07 Dec 2011)
What version of android and carriers can it work on?
49. spiderpig2894 (Posts: 435; Member since: 10 Jan 2012)
Xperia Arc front and Xperia S rear. LOL. No wonder this phone looks great.
