There's some good news for anyone who likes variety in the phablet marketplace as it's been revealed that Oppo is going to be selling its Find 5 handset in the US. The handset hasn't exactly been a secret but up until now it wasn't know what the final specs were, though the rumours offered a good idea of what to expect, or where it was going to be available.

This week saw Oppo post the official specs sheet on its US website in addition to listing it with a price in dollars and a list of carriers it's going to be compatible with.


Though Oppo might not be as familiar a name as Samsung the Find 5 delivers specs which are comparable with the Galaxy Note II, packed underneath a 5" display which has a full HD 1080x1920 resolution, with a 441ppi pixel density.

At the heart of the handset is a Qualcomm APQ8064 Quad-Core 1.5GHz processor which is backed up by 2GB of RAM. In addition to this it has 16GB of built-in storage, will be powered by a 2,500mAh battery and is set to ship with Android 4.1 installed. While all the essentials are listed there's no mention a front or rear facing camera on the site.

Anyone interested in the device can expect to pay $499.99 for it unlocked, which is a fair price compared to other phablets such as the Droid DNA. In terms of its connectivity Oppo customers will be limited to using the device on T-Mobile, AT&T and Simple Mobile.

At the moment the Oppo Find 5 page for the US just lists a price there's no option to pre-order. However with the official launch set to take place in Beijing next week on December 12 it shouldn't be long before the blanks are filled in with the specs and the handset is available to order.
