View Full Version : This is what the iphone should have been

If apple truly wanted to be a game changer, they should have introduced this gorgeous device.

The Oppo find 5 (http://www.phonearena.com/news/Oppo-Find-5-might-become-the-first-smartphone-with-a-1080p-screen_id34268#1-) is definitely a head turner. Only problem is, who the hell is Oppo?

- 5" true 1080p HD display (first ever)
- 441 ppi pixel density (say what, iPhone 5 is a paltry 326)
- Thinnest phone ever coming in at 6.65 mm
- Quad core S4 krait chipset
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

I would so buy this if it came to the States.

The Chinese company Oppo might not be a household name, but it made it into the headlines recently by unveiling the Oppo Finder, the thinnest smartphone available. Now, an even more amazing device is coming - the Oppo Find 5, a 5-inch smartphone that might well become the first with a 1080p screen. With a pixel density of the whopping 441ppi, this blows all competition out of the water and below you can see an approximation of what the level of detail looks like, even in comparison with screens like the “Retina” one on the iPhone 4S.

This made me lol! :D I was thinking the same thing.

Apple could easily develop something like this, they could of even have two different categories selling together just like every other product range.

A 3.5" and this monster 5".

We'll soon see if they will learn a lesson and maybe listen to the users or if they truely did make a wise decision.

Back to the device. Are the side bezels the same thickness in all 3 photos? Top bezel and generally the front side of the phone reminds me of those iphone mockups.

Camera looks interesting though...

I'm thinking picture 1 is the true mockup. The other 2 seem to be dangerously thin on the sides. It definitely doesn't waste any bezel though.

On the 1st pic, the front facing camera seems to be further away from the speaker grill than the other 2. Both are gorgeous though. although I could foresee some issues with the protruding camera.

What the S3 should have been. That phone is badass, too bad it won't make it here.
