Oppo Find 5 one-ups the HTC J Butterfly with a 5" 1080 screen in a 6.9mm chassis, yours for $478

Oppo Find 5 one-ups the HTC J Butterfly with a 5
The HTC J Butterfly was stealing the spotlight this week as the first brand-name handset announced with a 5" 1920x1080 pixels display, but its indirect competition, the Oppo Find 5, just surpassed our expectations, leaking out with full specs pegging it with less than 7mm thin chassis.

The HTC J Butterfly sports a 9mm casing, for comparison's sake, and the price of $478 for the 16 GB version of the Oppo Find 5 will make you smile even further. The 32 GB edition of the Oppo Find 5 will cost $526, but availability outside of China is not known for now, but so is the presence for the HTC J Butterfly outside of Japan, by the way.

The full specs list is also out, and it's a riot:

oppo find design is much better than htc butterfly.the questions arises are about build quality & fast updates to be provided.i think this device would be a hit if above 2 questions are answered satisfactorily with vanilla android integrated in it.

well even if its all plastic / polycarbonate like the One X its good enough for me as most flagships are made of plastic. And Google along with every major company wants to penetrate probably the biggest market in the world so I guess yeah the chinese will be receiving timely updates. Both my opinions are based purely on my insanely flawed logic :)

build quality and design are definitely better on the HTC.......and since this is a name brand we are all not to sure about........The HTC with its flaws and price are still looking like the better choice

You might be surprised at Oppo. Do some Web crawling of their blu-ray players and you will find they are quite highly regarded in the A/V space. Blu-ray players require continual updates so they should be used to keeping device software up to date.

Oppo makes some of the Blu-ray players on the market. If the wireless division maintains anything close to the build quality and customer service of the electronics division, then we should all be quite satisfied. As for update frequency as a responder below asked, I can say that their firmware updates on their blu-ray players are frequent. In fact, they make their beta firmware available to the public on their blu-ray players in case they run in to an issue which hasn't been resolved by the most recent official firmware release.

Not bad at all, 5 inch screen is perfect for me. Not too big to hold it in my hands for hours. Not too small either. :P

Looks like we all need to visit China and Japan very often...These countries should market phones exclusivity to go along wid tourism boost! On a more serious note, cant wait to get my hands on these 1080p creatures!!!

wtf did I just read full hd screen? woah !! HTC butterfly will break the records for sure (atleast for sometime) its another beast . way cool ! but 2500mah for a massive display won't be enough I guess(HTC's common error)

Too bad the HTC J Butterfly battery is only 2020 mAh.

This is breathtaking, how they achieve this is beyond me. I want 1.

If they are using the Sharp IGZO screen, then 2500 mAh may well be more than enough for more than a full day's usage, as IGZO technology drains batteries at a far lower rate than previous technologies...

Hmm..good point Can you please provide some info. or proof regarding this?(IGZO screen's battery management?

And the Krait S4 Pro is also draining less battery than Tegra 3 or Exynos..

oppo has toooooooo long from htc & cant compete with HTC..

11. wendygarett unregistered

ZTE just at bottom of HTC in market share... There are no 5 and 4 respectively... If HTC take no action, then say hello to oppo :)

I don't think htc will fall to the bottom anytime at all. Oppo is just starting with making their smartphones and unfortunately most of their products are not sold internationally that's why their market share is not as high compared with the other competing manufacturers.

16. wendygarett unregistered

China alone will definitely wins against all manufacture because of huge population, fortunately most Chinese are smart enough to pick Lenovo instead because, ZTE is government link company while Lenovo is independent, and most Chinese dont wanna sacrifice as tax payer so... Lenovo FTW!!! :D

17. wendygarett unregistered

Oh ya, the latest news also says that HTC is finally surpass iphone in China... Market shares is 7% and 6% respectively Lolol

htc got knocked down so soon? If oppo has a micro sd slot, it will raise the bar for smartphones again. Show me yours, samsung

14. wendygarett unregistered

neither model is confirmed to be available globally though. only samsung or lg have the capacity for making these phones widely available. lg has some kind of vendetta against micro sd though..
