Oppo Find 7 rumored to get MWC unveiling, $594 price
The Find 7 has been rumored for months to be Oppo’s successor for the Find 5, yet it still hasn’t become official for whatever reason. That might happen pretty soon, though, if a new report from China is to be believed.
Apparently Oppo will unveil its next flagship smartphone during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. This will be around 14 months after the Find 5 was announced, which is not something ordinary in the mobile world in this day and age, where most manufacturers want to cut down time before high-end releases, not go the other way.
What you see below may be the Find 7, or just some renders made up by a fan, it’s unclear. Still, the handset pictured does seem to adhere to Oppo’s recent design ethos.
The Oppo Find 7 has also gotten a new round of leaked specs. It shall have a 5.5-inch 2,560x,1440 touchscreen (made by JDI), a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front camera, a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor (MSM8974AB), 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, microSD card slot for expansion, and 4G LTE support. It will obviously run Android with the company’s own Color OS layer sprayed on top.
Some anonymous sources claim that the Find 7 will start at 3,598 yuan, which is around $594 or €434 at the current exchange rates. That would be a great price for such a high-end device, but there’s a catch. Oppo might also sell a version of the Find 7 with a 5-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen (and all other specs unchanged, we assume) and it’s this model that could get that low (compared to competitors) price. The 5.5-inch 2,560×1,440 panel will command its own premium, then.
But keep in mind that this is all nothing but an unverified rumor coming from unknown sources, and with forced reliance upon the not always stellar Google Translate for understanding what it all means. There may be errors. In fact, it would be surprising if there weren’t any.
