OPPO exec confirms the Find 5 specs: 5" display with 441ppi pixel density and S4 Pro, all in a 6.65mm chassis

Just like the Xiaomi Mi-Two was the first handset announced with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, the OPPO Find 5 might be the first launched with a 5" screen that carries the amazing 1080 lines of horizontal resolution, putting China ahead in hardware "firsts".
Whether or not 441ppi is overkill for a mobile screen we'll know after we put something like that through its paces, but the specs surprise doesn't end here. The OPPO Find 5 is once again listed coming with S4 Pro, which currently occupies the top spaces in graphics benchmarks for Android, and will also be incredibly thin at 6.65mm, making it the thinnest big-screen handset out there.
Note II already houses a more generous 3100 mAh unit, for example.
Pushing the pixels for 441ppi density might come as a strain for the battery, so we are really curious to see if this thing lands, and how the battery life would be on it. Other notable specs include wireless charging, 12MP rear camera, 2 GB of RAM, and that sweet Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. As for availability of the OPPO Find 5, that's still up in the air.

I will believe the claimed specs once the phone ships.

Agreed. Great specs, but looks waaaaaaaay too much like a Galaxy S3 or Note2. They should consider offering it in the U.S. after a redesign, maybe set up shops next to or across from apple stores to show what pushing the boundaries of technology can do, instead of tiny incremental upgrades like the fruit company does

I don't see any resemblance to Samsung's phones. It has what appears to be capacitive buttons as opposed to the S3 & GN2's big physical home button & hidden capacitive keys. I would say it looks more like a huge iPhone with Android buttons.

Wow.. I think this phone looks as close to the iPhone design as I have ever seen.. lol. It does look really good though! one thing, and I hope it's just a render we're seeing is that the speaker is way off center! and why the need for 6.65mm? I'd MUCH rather have another mm or 2 and get a whopper of a battery!

I am a sucker for hardware and the device in the pic looks really hot. That being said I have to agree with doejon its not only the hardware that counts but user interface experience as well unless its stock JB then woohoo! Moreover what's the chassis made of and tthat battery looks a tad small for 1080p. Nothing is overkill at the moment...any combination of hardware specs is justified as long as they compliment each other well enough.

This device really looks great, and it's spec sound like music to ear, but instead of getting overexcited for this device. I will wait for them to announce it first........ And I don't think battery will be issue, because they could announce maxx version of this device for those battery constious tech lover, or there might be some aftermarket battery packs released for this device......... But any ways let's wait for them to announce this device first...................

Specs wise, it's a great phone but I'll still choose note 2 coz not only for it's hardware but also for it's s-pen and innovative softwares. That's what really Samsung differentiate itself from other phone manufacturers.

1080P is just overkill for a phone IMO. The geek in me thinks its awesome; but realistically its not going to be a big difference in quality whatsoever. It may however detrimentally affect performance. Give me something to really drool over like a 1080P Android 10 inch tablet where we could put that extra quality to use.

Its a bragging right for ppi, yes that will have others say its overkill but tell that to iphone users who brag about their screen. Ether way its still more bang for your buck compared to the iphone. I rather pay the same and get more for your money then get 0.5" more screenfor space and old technology from the previous years haha. Hate if you want but its the truth, and it just hurts lmao

Specs are great but what else can it do? Can it offer the kind of experience the masses are used to with JB? Can the battery actually last with that 441 pixel screen buzzing away? These are just some of the questions that decide whether or not its a good device even with specs. If it was all about the specs, competition in the market would be much different.
