Oppo Find 5 Press Release
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.
Gizchina News of the week
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.
i’m gonna write a priority mail to santa! i was in doubts for weeks after looking at some “leaked” photos, that it would look ugly, but to my greatest surprise: it doesn’t.
guess the only thing which would prevent me from buying is the availability. or the availability of htc’s butterfly 😉
Hi Andi! Nice post! Better info than on the spanish tech sites I’m following 😉
The Oppo Find 5 is A-W-S-O-M-E, you can easily see that chinese manufacturers have reach western standards… if not overcome them. If price I just saw is correct (2998 元) we’re talking about around 370 €, that’s half the Lumia 920 (another tech beast with lots of new features) or the i5. Sorry for everybody but I’m NOT RICH, and you can breathe the quality of this phone from every single line or spot of it. Bye, bye (impossible) Xiaomi M2, hi Oppo Find 5!
Cheers everyone there!
Well, I made a mistake, Lumia (in Spain) is coming from 670 € and down, but anyway you can save a good money buying this Oppo, and it has good features too. I won’t pay 200-300 € more for a phone, that’s all.
No LTE, No micro slod sd card 🙁
I wait the nubia Z5 and Pantech VEGA IM-A860 !!!
When do we get a hands on video? 😀
Trying to upload them now but my internet is terrible!!
Whoa, how did you get the Find5 so quickly?!?!! I really need it before the end of the year, is there a way to contact Oppo?
Btw they never wanted to make the most powerful phone but looks like they accidentally nearly did!
Would you get this or the Meizu MX2 and does the Find5 also come in32GB and how much does it cost?
Nope I don’t have one YET. I tested the MX2 last week, and while it is a really great phone it didn’t blow me away. The camera on the Find 5 has me uber excited!
What about some pictures taken with the phone to check the quality?
Hunting for them now. I do have a video of the Find 5 taking some photos though! Coming soon 🙂
Video of the camera in action: http://youtu.be/371kfHx_U7g
First hands on video nearly uploaded
Yes but did YOU test it?
And for the videos did some people already get theirs??
Arggg why does it dont have 2 sim card slot ???? :-(((((((
Bezel little wide but waiting for Video.
Casing – Professional and cool at the same time.
Camera has a nice spec. Was expecting higher slow-mo mode 😉 HDR :))
It depends a LOT on price. You can get a ZTE U950 for $160. So 3 times more for a nice screen and admittedly well manufactured and quality looking body. Depends if price is in the EU/UK with tax/VAT paid etc. Or ship from cn. Maybe an LTE/SD slot is in the pipeworks,
Well done for getting one SO Quickly. Will be really interesting to se how ZTE respond. But huge well done OPPO. Nice looking phone.
Loads of vides on the way. Check our out Google+ and Facebook pages to view the Oppo Find 5 videos now, or hang on 10min to see them here!
China price is $480 international price is $499
Andi, u got one? got a call i could get one from Haidians EC mall but no time today to go there. Whats ur crack on it?
i am rather happy with my mi2 but was thinking about the find5 too but the 5 inch is a wee bit too much for my smallish burger movers.
thanks to miui i will for now stick to my new xiaomi. btw pls put ur video on tudou too since internet really means intra (in china) net
I wouldn’t have thought you could get one so soon. My inside man suggested that they won’t be available till January (which is when he said I’d likdly get my review unit). If you do get one though let us know ASAP! 🙂
Hi went there today they had a unit from the presentation but only to show it to some folks doin casings and so on. apparently they might send out a few to some bigger developers but officially the people in haidians oppo shop said mid jan. anyway i cant change fon every 2 months so i ll stick to my new xiaomi mi2 and probably getting another one of those as xmas presi for me dad cheers.
the meizu mx2 is due next week but given meizus history and their constant let down on the OS side… nope. pity google got LG for their last Nexus
I really need one before Xmas so let me know if there is any way.
Any details about the dimensions?
Similar to the HTC DNA? (141 x 70.5 x 9.7 mm)
I so want one of these, but wcan wait until after Christmas, I would be nice to shock my Galaxy S3 owning buddies with this baby!
I know right? I don’t need to show it off but if it went on sale today it would have beeen better.
and in all that awesomeness….they are gonna stick a useless powervr 531 gpu to help in gaming???of what…angry birds!!barely
hope they were bright enough note this and upgrade….
so whats the gpu on this super beast ?sure hope am wrong
You need to get yourself updated on the current state of ARM processors.
Most of the ARM-based processors from major chipmakers targeted for mobile use (phones, tablets) will have the GPU (and often RAM) stacked onto the processor.
In the case of the APQ8064, it’s paired with Qualcomm’s most current GPU, the Adreno 320. In other words, you’re not going to do any better performance-wise, circa late 2012.
after looking at these awesome China brand phones, i’m never gonna want an overpriced Samsung or Apple phone ever!!!!!!
just got to find a way to circumvent my country’s tax policy!
Any chance of the phone coming to UK sometimes in next year? Also any idea of a UK pricing?
Some interesting bits of info on the forum.
e.g. Stores worldwide, potentially direct internet sales, which bits of the case are plastic, 32GB model on the way.
