Oppo prepping 32GB Find 5 to accompany 16GB modelAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Oppo officially took the wraps off of its Find 5 Android smartphone earlier this month, and while the new handset touts some pretty high-end specs, one aspect of it that may have bothered some folks the fact that it's got just 16GB of storage and no microSD slot for additional memory. There's now a bit of good news for those large library-having people, though, as Oppo has revealed that a 32GB flavor of the Find 5 is also on the way. The company posted the above image on its Facebook page, confirming the existence of a 32GB Find 5 that'll cost $569.
Also included in this image is a list of countries that the Find 5 will be released to, with both the U.S. and Canada making the cut. Oppo says that plans to launch the Find 5 in all of these countries in the first quarter of 2013, with the hopes that it'll do so as close to the early January Chinese launch window as possible.
As noted earlier, the Find 5 is coming to market with several features that ought to please the smartphone spec hounds out there, including a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 5-inch 1920x1080 display. There's also 13-megapixel rear and 1.9-megapixel front cameras, NFC, 2GB RAM, a 2,500mAh battery and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. While the unsubsidized $499/$569 pricing won't appeal to folks used to getting new phones for $199 with a carrier contract, the Find 5's spec sheet makes it a device that may be worth keeping an eye on for anyone with some holiday cash to spare. We'll give you a shout once we get more details on its U.S. debut.
