OPPO teased via its official Facebook page an advert that shows that the Find 5 will be available in both 16GB and 32GB variants, which will cost $499 and $569, respectively. What's more, the image also disclosed that the Android-powered OPPO Find 5 smartphone, in addition to the U.S., will be released in several countries in Q1 2013.

The additional countries where the smartphone will ship in Q1 2013 per the Facebook image are: Spain, the UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, Malaysia, Belgium, Sweden, Singapore, Finland, Greece, Denmark, New Zealand, Japan, Norway, and Hong Kong.

Engadget has confirmed the news with OPPO officials and were told that the company would try to release the Find 5 in all these markets as close to the early January launch in China. However, the company did not disclose a specific release date.

"We reached out to Oppo and were told that it's aiming to hit all these markets within Q1 next year; and better yet, it'll try to do that as close to the early-January China launch as possible," reported Engadget

The OPPO Find 5 sports a 5-inch LCD screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution and a pixel density of 441ppi, putting it in the same league as the HTC DROID DNA. A 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor will power the smartphone.

The Find 5 has 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB of on-board memory with no option to expand the memory via a microSD slot. The device sports a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, a 2500mAh battery, and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.

With major players like Samsung, Sony, LG, and Lenovo all said to be readying 1080p smartphones for 2013, it will be interesting to see if OPPO can carve a place for itself in the hotly contested smartphone space.
