The Oppo Find 5 is one of the phones that’re
leading the 5” 1080p craze and Oppo is
already taking pre-orders for it in its home
country, China. Priced at 2,998 Chinese yuan
($480), the Find 5 can challenges flagships
from HTC (the DROID DNA / Butterfly) and
Sony (the Xperia Z).
Anyway, Chinese pre-orders will be fulfilled
on January 29. That’s for the 16GB. There
will be a 32GB version too, though pricing for
this one hasn’t been announced in China yet.
Elsewhere, the 16GB version will be $500 and
the 32GB version will be $570. You can
check the list of countries that will be getting
it here .
So, any takers? For comparison, an HTC
DROID DNA for Verizon will set you back
$600 without a contract (it has 16GB storage
and “only” an 8MP camera), but it has HTC’s
brand name behind it. It is pricier outside the
US ($890 in Australia) though. There's the
Sony Xperia Z too, but that one is muuch
more expensive than the Find 5 as well.
