Earlier, Oppo had announced that the Find 5 would not get the Android 4.4 (KitKat) update in the near future. Now new info suggests that Oppo will indeed update the Find 5, alongside the N1 handset to the latest Android 4.4 KitKat. As of now, there is no exact time frame provided for the Find 5 and the N1 Android 4.4 KitKat update.
Basically, Oppo revealed its plans in a Google + comment, when a user complained about how his Find 5 will never get Color OS 2.0. In response, Oppo commented back by saying," We have plans for a KitKat based Color OS 2.0 for both the Find 5 and N1. Please stay tuned for more news on this in the near future." This is big news for those who own either of two handsets.
Oppo Find 5
Oppo Find 5 was unveiled much before the arrival of the Find 7 flagship. It was the company's first ever 1080p FHD smartphone. The handset featured a 5-inch IPS FHD display; a Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-c ore processor clocked at 1.5GHz; 13MP rear-facing camera; 1.9MP front-shooter, among others.
The Oppo N1, on the other handset, offers a unique rotating swivel camera. The handset comes with a 5.9 inch HD display offering a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and delivers a stunning 377 pixels per inch pixel density. It is powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor with Adreno 320 GPU coupled with 2 GB of RAM. It runs on Oppo's home baked Color OS, which is built on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
The internal storage is not expandable and customers can buy the handset in two variants: 16 GB and 32 GB models. Moving on the camera section, there is a 13 MP CMOS sensor camera (from Sony) which features 6 lenses stacked over one another. The wide Aperture f/2.0 camera is supported by Fujitsu IPS imaging chip.
Also add a Dual LED flash. The camera, which can be rotated up to 180 degrees, can be used to take super-high quality selfies. And upon rotating the camera hinge, also activates the camera. Connectivity options include NFC and DLNA, 3G and WiFi.
