Chinese smartphone maker Oppo is reportedly planning to roll out its flagship smartphone, Find 5, in India through Android Guruz, a retail smartphone brand setup that aims to sell android phones in India.

According to technology website Mobile Indian, Oppo plans to sell 16GB and 32GB models in India for ₹27,445 and ₹31,259, respectively. The smartphone is expected to hit stores by the end of May. However there is no official word from the company yet.

"The phone will be priced at ₹27,445 for 16GB version and ₹31,259 for 32GB version and will be available by end of this month," said the report.

Oppo, a brand celebrated globally for its unique design and features, is likely to go through a hard time in India as the brand is unknown in the sub-continent. The negative perceptions associated with Chinese brands in the country could also have an impact on Oppo smartphone sales in India.

On the specifications front, Oppo Find 5 which shares similarities with Sony Xperia Z and HTC One boasts a 5-inch IPS display with 1080p resolution and a pixel density of 441ppi. It is powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and packs 2GB of RAM. Other specifications include a 13-megapixel rear camera, 1.9 megapixel front facing camera, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, 2,500mAh battery and connectivity features like NFC, DLNA, WiFi Direct, 3G, WIFI and Bluetooth 4.0.
