Oppo caused quite the stir in the smartphone market back in December, when it became the second company in the world to unveil a Full HD handheld, but then they decided for some reason, to skip past CES 2013, basically slipping off our radar.
But now the Find 5 is back where it belongs – in news headlines – having gotten an official release date in China. The 5-incher is set to start shipping on January 29, which is just two short weeks away.
Before then, Chinese tech lovers can of course get their pre-orders in on Oppo’s official website, ensuring their spots in front of the line. As far as pricing goes, the phone starts at 2,998 yuan ($485) with 16 GB of on-board memory.
The 32 GB version is not yet up for pre-order and doesn’t have an official price tag attached, so it might be a while until seeing that released.
While the European and North American ETAs are themselves kept secret, rumor has it that Oppo will begin taking pre-orders as soon as next month. We don’t know about you, but we’re awfully excited about the Find 5, so we’ll be keeping an eye out for the release details outside Asia.
