Oppo Unveils World's First 1080p Smartphone

When you think of smartphone titans the first company that comes to mind may be Samsung or Apple. But despite their record high smartphone sales, neither company has achieved what Chinese phone company Oppo has. After releasing the world's thinnest smartphone and the world's thinnest quad core smartphone, the company is back again with the world's first 1080p smartphone.

Dubbed the Oppo Find 5, the 5-inch smartphone features a whopping 441 pixels per inch (PPI), making the iPhone's 326 PPI retina display look like an Etch A Sketch toy from the 60s. Resulting in a crisp 1920 x 1080 display, the Oppo Find 5 knocks the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note 2 out of the water. Even better, the Oppo Find 5 has just as much beauty on the inside as it does on the surface.

The device is going to ship with Android 4.1 on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor. To get an idea of how powerful this chip is, the APQ8064 easily beats the Exynos 4412-based Galaxy S III and Tegra 3-based Nexus 7 on a number of benchmarks. Other rumored specs include 2GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front facing camera, 16GB or 32GB of storage and a 2,500mAh battery pack.

No word on pricing or a release date just yet, but we'll keep you posted. Until then, we'll just have to hope for a global release so we can all enjoy this promising smartphone.

    Question: If these Chinese companies have been manufacturing record-breaking, awesome smartphones for years, how come we've never seen reviews of any of these in the west, in any country?

    EDIT> ***, I forgot that Apple patented rectangles with rounded corners. No wonder.

    aftcometI will NEVER buy Chinese sourced goods. NEVER.

    Yeah, good luck with that. You probably had something made in China on yourself when you posted that comment... And the device you posted it from has something made in China as well.

    Apple patented 1080p, they are working on a lawsuit as we speak.

    Great.. Now I'm torn between the LG Optimus G or this (if available in my Country).
    I'm leaning more towards the LG for battery life, who knows how much power this bad boy's screen is going to suck away.
