Pictures of Oppo Find 5 Full HD phone emerge

Chinese manufacturer Oppo, whose Finder is one of the thinnest smartphones on the planet (opens in new tab), has released pictures of its newest handset called the Find 5 on its forum (opens in new tab).

It comes with a massive 5in display with a full HD (1,920 x 1,080 resolution), 2GB of RAM and a quad-core system-on-chip from Qualcomm, the APQ8064.

Other features include a 3mm bezel, a 12-megapixel Sony BSI camera with a flash and what we suspect to be Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The pictures were published shortly after HTC officially presented the J Butterfly smartphone/phablet (opens in new tab), which also has a 5in display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon system-on-chip and a full HD resolution which translates into a 440ppi pixel density, around a third higher than Apple’s “Retina” display.

(opens in new tab)It is not sure whether the Oppo Find 5 is using the same Super LCD 3 that equips the J Butterfly, a display that might have been devised by Sharp or Samsung and which could be rolled out on other smartphones as well.

Interestingly, it paves the way for smaller displays with much high resolution. For example, a 3.5in with a 1,280 x 720 pixels resolution requires a pixel density of 415ppi.
