Oppo’s latest flagship device has been launched in Beijing earlier, the Find 5 comes with pretty much all the top ingredients in the current market — many of which had been teased by the company multiple times already: 5-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 chip with 2GB RAM, a 2,500mAh battery and Android 4.1.2. There’s also NFC, and on top of that, the Find 5 will come with two NFC tags (remember LG’s Optimus LTE Tag and Sony’s SmartTags?) plus a special version of Sina Weibo that uses the phone’s NFC to let users instantly follow each other.
The 13-megapixel, 5fps camera on the back isn’t just about numbers, as it also packs fast hardware-enabled HDR for both photos and video! Oppo claims it’s the first in the mobile industry to carry this awesome feature. Additionally, the main camera can capture slow motion of up to 120fps, though it isn’t clear whether the resolution is reduced to achieve this. On the other side of the device there’s also a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, which beats most phones these days. Audio-wise the Find 5 features Dirac HD, a technology that’s embraced by the likes of BMW, Bentley, Rolls Royce and Datasat; making Oppo the first mobile phone brand to join the party. The included earphones are fine-tuned for Dirac, naturally.
Alas, much like the Droid DNA, this Chinese superphone also suffers from the lack of microSD expansion, so users may struggle to fully appreciate the 441ppi screen with just 16GB of built-in storage. As for pricing, we already know that the US will offer the Find 5 for $499, and luckily, it’ll just ¥2,998 or about $480 in China, but it’ll be about a month before the phone reaches its various markets, including the US.
With the official announcement of the full HD display sporting, ultra slim Oppo Find 5 smartphone imminent, the Chinese manufacturer has launched a dedicated English language website. This occurrence should hardly catch anyone by surprise given Oppo’s already confirmed ambitions for international success.
The website offers an email sign-up sheet for an Oppo newsletter, as well as dedicated products, press, and forums links. Given the infancy of the webpage though, there isn’t a lot of available content at the moment.
In case you need a refreshment – the upcoming Oppo Find 5 will pack killer specs, which will include a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon S4 chipset, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.1.2. Coupled with a slim body and an attractive commitment-free price tag, the Finder 5 feature set should make it an attractive alternative to the current top shelf Android establishment.
HTC’s Butterfly, the droid with the 5″ 1080p screen, started off in Japan, moved to the US and has now finally gone international. It keeps the same cool specs as the country-specific versions, including the high-res S-LCD3 and the Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset.
But instead of telling you about it, it’s easier to show it with this video ad for the HTC Butterfly.
See? HTC is living up to its “Quietly brilliant” slogan and subtly tells you about the Butterfly’s burst shot capabilities, wireless TV out and face recognition. The ad also shows the phone is splash resistant, which is true for the Japanese version (the J Butterfly), but the specs of the international version make no mention of this.
After Oppo, HTC and Sharp, it’s Lenovo’s turn to release an Android-based smartphone with a 1080p display. We don’t really know much about this phone, including it’s name, but a few screenshots from the phone have surfaced online.
These screenshots reveal that the device indeed has a 1080p resolution. They also show that the phone supports dual-SIM cards and that it is running Lenovo’s custom skin on top of Android.
It is being said that the phone is in its final stages of development and would be officially announced in China shortly.
The HTC J Butterfly, world first 5-inch 1080p Full HD display-packing, has now a promo video, this monster of a smartphone is exclusive for the Japanese carrier AU/KDDI for the time being.
The ad focus on the 1080p display in question, Here goes the video itself.
KDDI has unveiled the HTC J Butterfly (HTL21) in Japan and it is the first production smartphone to have a 1080p display.
The HTC J Butterfly has : 5.0-inch, Super LCD3 display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, which gives it a pixel density of the astonishing 440 ppi. The display is quite big but at 143 x 71 x 9.1 mm, the J butterfly is only slightly bigger than the One X (134.4 x 69.9 x 8.9 mm) and at 140g weighs just 10g more.
Under the hood of the HTC J butterfly, you have a quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz with 2GB of RAM. It has 16GB internal storage, microSDHC expansion.
On the back is an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording and on frontal 2 megapixel camera. The smartphone supports 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 (LE), NFC, LTE and CDMA/GSM/UMTS/GPRS radios, and the phone is dust and waterproof (IPX5). Strangely, for a phone with such specs, the battery is only 2,020mAh.
Finally, the HTC J Butterfly will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.
The HTC J butterfly is set to release in Japan on AU/KDDI in December. The phone will be sold in three colors: red, black and white.
