Oppo has a surprise in store for 18th June!


Oppo have posted a short message on their official Weibo account telling they have a surprise in store for Chinese Oppo fans but what could it be?

From the official post all we know is that Oppp have a “big surprise” for Chinese fans, but no details are given other than it appears to have something to do with the Oppo Find 5.

Possibilities could be a price drop for the current Find 5 to keep sales alive in the run up to the next generation Find 7, but the more interesting idea is that a slight updated Oppo Find 5 is on the way, one which could have a more powerful Snapdrgaon 600 CPU on board!

    could I dare dreaming for a 2nd sim ? 😉 that would be almost perfect .. add to it a gorilla glass and I go buy it right away ! seems like actual screen is not that scratch tolerant … and having more horse power is not a criteria anymore ! come on ! am I the only one feeling CPU power is not most important here ? Are you guys doing more with faster phone ? we want more features and improved existing ones that are still giving trouble in everyday life ! GPS sensitivity, Connectivity, scratch resistance, battery autonomy, …

      That’s right. It is surprising how most Chinese phones are ‘me too’ products. None of them gets everything right. For my requirements the perfect phone would combine: 5 inch AND decent screen resolution (don’t need to be full HD) AND good battery life (3000 mAh or more) AND scratch resistant screen AND dual sim AND support of international connectivity (quadband UMTS with 900 MHz UMTS are an absolute must have) AND 2 GB Ram AND stock android AND a decent price (not more than 350$). I don’t think these requirements are ‘over the top’, but at the moment there is not single phone on the market fulfilling these requirements.

          Iocean x7 is not scratch resistent, right?

        Sounds like the Jiayu G4 advanced for the most part.
        If you put as an requirement “Available soon” then not ^^

          Iocean X7 elite and Jiya G4 advanced are also not ‘international’ phones. So far I haven’t seen the specs including quadband UMTS.

    I just love the I Ocean X7 Elite and would rather wait. Patience is a virtue!

    I hope it will be a good announcement! I in fact really hope that it is a snapdragon 800 instead of 600!

    From what i’ve heard they will be introducing an Oppo Find 5 Mini with a 3.7″ screen. If thats correct then nothing to get excited about.
