Find 7

The Oppo Find 7 has just been announced in Beijing amidst much hype and speculation over the past several weeks. Thanks to recent teasers issued by the company, we knew a fair bit about the device, but the official announcement has shed light on many other features of the smartphone.

The smartphone will break cover in a standard 1080p variant and a model featuring a 5.5 inch 2K resolution display with a pixel density of 538 ppi. The two handsets also boast a superior 13 megapixel Sony IMX214 CMOS camera sensor with an F/2.0 lens which can combine 10 images to output a high resolution 50 megapixel shot. Oppo calls this the Super Zoom feature. The camera is also capable of 4K video recording and 720p slow-motion video at 120 frames per second. The 1080p model comes with a Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot.

The high end Find 7 is running on the latest Snapdragon 801 chipset with a clockspeed of 2.5 GHz. Other features include 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (expandable), Android 4.4 KitKat with Oppo’s proprietary ColorOS 1.2 and a massive 4,500 mAh battery. Oppo claims the battery can charge up to 75% of its capacity from a completely dead state within 30 minutes thanks to what it’s calling the ‘Rapid Charge’ technology. The handset also comes equipped with high end MaxxAudio speakers for superior sound output.

We’ll keep our eyes peeled for more details about the two Find 7 variants and bring them as they unravel.
