Oppo Find 5 silently upgraded with Snapdragon 600 processor in China


Oppo Find 5 white

When the Oppo Find 5 was announced back towards the tail-end of 2012, Chinese manufacturer Oppo released arguably one of the best Android devices to date, and one you’ve likely never heard about. Offered unlocked and with top of the line specs like a quad-core Snadragon S4 processor, 5-inch full HD 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 13MP camera, and a full aluminum unibody aluminum frame — there was little to not like about Find 5.

Oppo Find 5 Snapdragon 600 CPU


Now that we’re well into the year, that once snappy Qualcomm S4 Pro processor might be starting to show its age. Rather than go back to the drawing board and release an entirely new device, Oppo has simply gone in and upgraded the processor with seemingly little effort. Jumping onto the Oppo Store, you’ll now find the Find 5 TD for China Mobile is now packing an upgraded Snapdragon 600 processor, putting the device in the same category as current flagships from HTC or Samsung.

With a gorgeous design, solid build quality, easily hackable software, and solid specs, the Oppo Find 5 is an already great device and the Oppo Find 5 TD for China Mobile only improves upon that. You can learn more about the upgraded Oppo Find 5 TD for China Mobile here. The international Oppo Find 5 (with Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU) can be found on Oppo’s online storefront here.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Wow…. this is amazing. Oppo is really catering to the power users. Kind of makes me want one.. Buy me one Chris! :P

    1. I already have one. O_o

      1. So uhhh… Can I borrow it? O_o

      2. You do? Do a review on it (or the new Snapdragon 600 model if you ever get that). I never even knew this company existed.

      3. yes please do a review!!! im liking what i am reading!!!

      4. Review!

        1. just as Sheila said I didn’t know that some one able to make $4078 in 1 month on the internet. did you see this page w­w­w.K­E­P­2.c­o­m

  2. Regular updates that take community feedback into account, such hardware upgrades to improve performance, a nice price, Oppo surely is doing a lot. Let’s just hope Android 4.2 is out for it soon, or is it out already?

    1. I believe it is already out for it. If not, you can root it and install it. I know Oppo welcomes rooting and helps out developers.

      1. Yeah, heard AOSP ROMs run pretty well on it, Oppo is awesome with the community/consumer support. I’m wondering if they do international deliveries, I’m in India and they do have the option to select it on the order page while entering the delivery address, but not sure they actually deliver to countries where it’s not launched.

        1. I wanna say they do… But not 100% sure. Check out the XDA forums on the Oppo F5, I’m sure your answer is there! Good luck.

  3. Make a Google Play edition and they won’t be able to take my money fast enough.

    1. You don’t need a Google Edition to this phone. All you need to do is ROM it up lol

      1. Yea. I see SO much stuff on the Oppo Find. Like in random videos about CM10 and other ROMs, users would have that kind of phone.

        I was like, what is that?

  4. If only it was not Chinese I don’t need two government s stealing and listening to my ideas

    1. Easy fix: flash CyanogenMod. :)

  5. He thinks those are fast data speeds on AT&T?? On T-Mobile’s HSPA+ Network I’m pulling down over 17mb during the middle of the day, at night over 23mb easy, sometimes almost reaching 30mb. That is on HSPA+ from T-Mobile. Just got LTE from T-Mobile and my speeds are even faster. T-Mobile is the only Carrier to be installing LTE Advanced hardware on all their towers, they will be the first to go LTE Advanced once that technology is ready to go with new LTE Advanced phones. T-Mobile taking over the world.

    1. i am super satisfied with tmobiles network….yes it is a bit spotty, but when u get it..you GET IT!!! i average 14-24mbps in my area(with full signal) once i get LTE-A….imagine having 4g HSPA+/ 4G LTE while competition has 3G/4G LTE….

  6. “tail-end of 2013″…..???

    1. That’s what I was thinking too

      1. Uhhhhh.. you know what I meant. :p

        1. i refreshed my page and BAM! u fixed it! you work faster at updating corrections than android manufacturers update OSs..Phandroid 1, Manufacturers 0.

          1. LoL!! Really? That analogy, though.

          2. its just pops into my head….

  7. I want to start getting into that market. Since I’m now on Tmo I can use whatever phone I want from across the seas. Those phones look cool and seem to bring different stuff to the table.

    And none of my friends would have it. LoL!! But I know that would be an expensive game to get into. Hmm…

    1. Expensive?

  8. no. the s4 is not starting to feel sluggish.

  9. No LTE, sounds nice until I red that on the Oppo wbste.

  10. Damn Oppo… gurl you looking FINE…

  11. Still says “Qualcomm APQ8064 Quad-Core 1.5GHz” for me……

  12. Wait, can I update my Oppo too or did the main board change. Otherwise I’m changing my chip. Hello user replaceable parts for phones. About time

  13. Everything I dislike about the HTC One is rectified with this phone. The bezel is much more reasonable, and the aluminum design in general is just better.

  14. I wonder how Oppo (electronics) feels about this cell company using their name.

  15. I used to really want this phone, but the s4 was holding me back… Well, there we go. By the way, Chris, I’m pretty sure it’s a steel frame, not aluminum.
