OPPO brings Find 3 Android handset to China

OPPO brings Find 3 Android handset to China
Chinese manufacturer OPPO is bringing one smart-looking device to market in China. Take a look at the gallery below and see if you don’t feel a twinge of envy. Who is OPPO? They’re a Chinese electronics company that got their start in PMPs, TVs, and DVD/Blu-Ray players. They have also been competing in mainland China with lower cost phones, but it’s clear they intend to step up their game in a big way.

The Find 3 runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) sporting a custom UI overlay on its 4” screen, and sports the dual-core 1.5GHz CPU and 1GB of RAM that is quickly becoming standard for high end devices. OPPO says it’s using a Sony 8MP camera sensor similar to that on the iPhone 4S, so you can expect good things from your photos. It also comes with a 2MP front-facing shooter. All this can be had off contract for $450 USD.

Could we ever see a phone like this outside of China? No plans have been announced, but OPPO has made a successful business out of selling electronics to the U.S., so it doesn’t seem out of the question that they could also look to distribute their phones internationally, if they meet with initial success inside China.

The fact that so many phones are now being announced for China, many made with premium materials, also goes to show how important a market China has become to mobile manufacturers.

Who would want to snap one of these up if they became available domestically?

Most of the products produced in this world are marked as "Made in China"

Sorry i was not accurate. Let me reword then...."the BIGGEST issue with things made by chineses. IS it DURABLE???" Most of things are "Made in China" but not "Made by Chinese" ... if you know what i mean. Example Ipad was made in china but was made by apple. Epad was made in china and made by chinese. You can tell the difference in quality, durability and usability in the network.

Could find a lot of fans, but what about Ice Cream Sandwich-update and resolution? Damn, why do big manufacturers (except Apple, Nokia and Sony) never do really beautiful phones like this one?

Everyone's got one here and there. The HTC Amaze is still an incredible looking device in my opinion...not necessarily beautiful to me but I could easily see how some others might think so. I thought the Optimus 2X/G2X was a very nice device when it came out. Yeah it's another black slab but it never got credit for how nicely it's built and how well the screen tapers into the edges. Nothing earth shattering I guess but compared to most HTCs, Motos, Samsung's and especially the rest of LG's own lineup it was something of a knockout for its time in my opinion. Samsung...well you got me there.

Nice design, somewhat reminds me of the iPhone4/4S, yet still in it's own lane... I wonder if the bezzel is as thin as I imagine... =]

yeah this thing's got Apple's gonna sue written all over it. Strange though, even when the iphone4 was new it did nothing for me. This however...though it may just be that I'm a sucker for brushed metal trim.

WTF? Doesn't This phone again resembles in many ways that rumored sketch of the iPhone5 and that SGS3? Oh well that design is sick in any angle you look at it. . .
