Most Android smartphones today have a screen sized somewhere between 4.3-inches and 4.7-inches with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. China’s Oppo Mobile CEO Chen Mingyong has just declared 720p obsolete, however. Chen claims his company’s upcoming Oppo “Find 5” smartphone will sport a 5-inch display running at 1080p resolution, effectively making it a phablet with 441 pixels per inch (ppi). That’s sharper than the iPhone 5‘s 326 PPI and the Nokia (NOK) Lumia 920’s 331 PPI. Even with such a large 1080p display, Oppo remains confident it can deliver the quad-core Find 5 in a design that is only 6.65mm thick. Only time will tell if the Oppo Find 5 lives up to its impressive spec sheet.
