As expected the Oppo Find 5 was officially announced this week adding yet another impressively spec'd handset to the phablet category. While Oppo might not be a household name in the US, as its previous devices have rarely been seen outside of its native china, this time around the handset is getting an official North American release.

Confirmed specs of the device with a 5" display which has a full 1080p HD resolution include a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage. In addition to this it's also set to be packing a rear-facing 13mp camera with HDR and HD video at up to 120fps and a front-facing 1.9mp camera. Powering it all is a 2500mAh battery and it's going to come with Android 4.1 installed.


2013's flagship devices look set to be dominated by the phablet form factor as big names like HTC and Sony jump on Samsung's bandwagon along with LG. As well as Oppo it was also revealed this week that its fellow Chinese phone maker ZTE is going to be revealing its own 5" device at CES.

Anyone in the US interested in the device can order it through Oppo's US website. It's not available to pre-order at the moment but those interested can sign up to be alerted when more information becomes available. When it does go on sale it's going to cost $499.99 and will be compatible with networks including T-Mobile, AT&T and Simple Mobile.

Although it's unlikely to replace the Galaxy Note II as everyone's favourite phablet its price-tag, which is lower than the unlocked Droid DNA, and competitive specs should provide some healthy competition for the likes of ZTE's upcoming Grand S and Sony's future phablet.
