Oppo has been teasing its upcoming refresh on the Find 5 – known as the Find 7 – for a while now, and while detailed information is, naturally, still pretty scarce, the latest teaser clearly shows that the new flagship will tout a 5.5-inch 1440x2560 pixel resolution display. The combo works out to 538 pixels per inch...

Hahaha.. No money, no phone.

That's killer...

Most of these phones are not available worldwide.

Yes, they are. Oppo ships some of their phones including their flagship to other countries.

Yeah, this will be expensive. And availability is serious issue. And servicing in most areas.

5.5 inch 2560x1440??
THAT'S THE SAME AS LG's panel that they showed some months ago. The Panel is the slimmest panel with the thinnest bezel. And on the facebook they wrote "5.5" screen with the feel of a 5" screen device". So maybe they are using DAT PANEL! :D
Sorry for my english :)

I still feel Adreno 450 wont be enough for 2K

The Adreno 330 pushes a 2560x1600 display very well. The Adreno 420 (which is really in the 805, PA made a mistake) should handle 2560x1440 easily, considering it's a slightly more powerful GPU and a slightly lower resolution.

Pretty damn close to perfect phone to me. I'd still take it with 1080p=even more insane performance and longer battery life.

450 should be sufficient enough but devs have to start optimizing their apps for 2k

No need bro. They can just continue to write apps optimised for 1080p, as the difference will be found only by high quality lens or low quality microscope.

I think this is the size of the note II so no. Too big. I might buy the Lumia 929 (if wp 8.1 brings really cool updates), or the next sony or Htc flagship.

Agreed. 5.3 inches and above should be phablet territory IMO. Of course majority of the people love the move to bigger displays so this device is going to be great for them, but I was hoping that Oppo would stick to 5 inches. At least HTC is rumoured to stick with 5 inches and 1080p..hopefully they can get more battery out of that.

even though it is a 5.5 screen it is rumored to be the same size as their inch phone fine 5 so it wouldn't be a phablet. With phones having smaller bezels that definition of what makes a phablet would have to change.

Glad to see that Oppo didn't use the 2K term in this ad because it was incorrect as current 1080p phones are 2K.

Looks like it will be a great phone.

I'd say 750$ at least, maybe 850$, 900 $.

I don't think so and hope not. I'm assuming it'll be around the $600 price range. If I remember correctly, they released the oppo find 5 at $569 for the 32gb version.

It's going to be made with a watered down software offerings, probably a mediocre camera over the big competitors, and that display, for all of it's pixels, will probably not utilize the best semiconducting panel materials for efficiency or have the best display calibration for color reproduction like Apple, Samsung or even LG would have.

I always stick to the best, even if it costs more. These cheaper Chinese alternatives just look good on paper.

Watered down software offerings? Oppo has now teamed up with Cyanogenmod. Don't think it will be watered down.

Oppo's Find 5 uses the Sony Exmor RS 13 MP sensor, I wouldn't say that's medioce at all.

Also the Find 5 uses a display from JDI, similar to the one used on the Droid DNA.

Oppo is known for their outstanding BLU-Ray players, probably some of the best in their class.

This is Oppo we're talking about. The Find 5 was one of the first to have 1080p, and it was a very good display. The Find 5 also used the same Exmor RS sensor that's in the Galaxy S4 and Xperia Z. If you think the software will be lacking, Oppo has already made a deal with CyanogenMod, so it will probably be an option to have it pre-installed on the phone rather than Oppo's usual custom software, which was already very good.

This isn't just a Chinese alternative, Oppo is a quality manufacturer.

Not coming to the US market so why should we care about them?

Please correct. It uses adreno 420 not 450.
450 are the Krait core.

Dam I wish oppo would expand to the US. With these specs and the right advertising they can get there phones into alot of consumers hands

Yeah, because we can totally see the difference between a 720p display with ~320ppi to a 2k with 550ppi.

Gimmick.
