Android with 3.7-inch 720p display rumored

The HTC First, in spite of its inability to make a commercial impact, interests us for a number of reasons, not the least of which is its 4.3-inch 720p display. Even though we continue to see higher resolutions and greater pixel densities brought to the largest smartphones, progress seems to have left more petite handsets behind, so outfitting a smaller phone with an HD screen felt like a great move. The phone we’re talking about today does things one step better, bringing a 720p display to a handset with a 3.7-inch screen.

This display could arrive on the Oppo Find 5 Mini, following in the footsteps of its 5-inch 1080p cousin. While the rumors are clear about its size and resolution, the rest of the details on the phone are quite a bit murkier. The SoC could be quad-core, but may only be a MediaTek component running at 1.2GHz. We’ve also heard the phone could be equipped with just 1GB of RAM, a figure that’s rapidly becoming a bare minimum.

The Find 5 Mini is expected to launch next month. What do you think, does that nearly-400-ppi screen sound pretty sweet, or would you rather wait until we see such a thing on a phone from a more mainstream manufacturer?
