Oppo Find 7

The day has finally arrived, and as promised, Oppo unveiled its shiny new flagship the Oppo Find 7. It’s a direct competitor to the flagships from Samsung, Sony, HTC and other manufacturers, and it’s got some nifty features to boot.

As with all smartphones these days, we heard a lot about the Oppo Find 7 before today’s unveiling, and little was left to the imagination. Most of the rumors panned out, and the results are a device that packs a mean punch. The Find 7 will come in two variants, and the Oppo Find 7a is the regular version of the device with a 5.5-inch FHD display, 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800, 2GB or RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 2800mAh battery. Needless to say, their “regular” version falls in line with other companies flagships.oppo.find.7

The Premium version of the Oppo Find 7 has that sexy QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440. Under the hood you’ll find a Snapdragon 801 (2.5GHz), 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a bigger 3000mAh battery. The screen size stays the same, but everything else has been upgraded and it makes the Oppo Find 7 the beastliest device we’ve seen in 2014 in terms of specs.

In addition to the top-notch components, both models of the Oppo Find 7 have a “pulsing” notification bar on the bottom, rapid charging through VOOC, and a microSD slot to expand the memory. As for those 50MP camera rumors… there’s some truth to them. The Find 7 will have a 13MP Sony IMX214 CMOS snapper and something called “Super Zoom” which takes photos and merges them into a 50MP picture. The rear-camera can handle 4K video and front-facing camera comes in at 5MP. Both models will run “Color OS” and there’s been no word of CyanogenMod support at this time.oppo find 7

While most companies just put out an upgraded model of last year’s flagship, Oppo is the first to significantly better last year’s offering with the premium version of the Oppo Find 7. If you’re looking to pick one up, the regular version of the Find 7 goes on sale tomorrow for around $500 in China and is expected to be available globally sometime in April. As for the QHD Oppo Find 7, you should be able to pick one of those up in May or June for around $600 unlocked.
