Oppo Find 7 pictured, has specs officially confirmed
On March 19, Oppo will finally make the Find 7 official. This is going to be the Chinese company’s next flagship smartphone, and it’s expected to become available for order in many countries across the globe, just like its predecessor (the Find 5) was. March 19 can’t come soon enough, though, as Oppo has been teasing the Find 7 for months already. And now it looks like the leaks have finally picked up the pace too, as we get an idea of what the handset will look like thanks to some leaked renders.
The Find 7, as you can see in the images below, keeps a familiar Oppo design language – especially the slightly curved lower side reminds us of past Oppo models. As such, it’s instantly recognizable as a product of that particular company, but it also looks modern (as it should).
On its official account on Sina Weibo (the social network usually nicknamed “China’s Twitter”), Oppo has posted the image you can see below – of the specs of the Find 7 written on a piece of paper. So now we have most of the phone’s specs confirmed as well. There’s one thing to keep in mind, though – we’re only talking about one version of the device, that with a 1080p Full HD touchscreen. As previously confirmed by Oppo itself, the Find 7 will also have an even higher-end iteration, and that will sport a 5.5-inch 2,560×1,440 QHD (“2K”) touchscreen.
With that in mind, here’s what you should expect from the FHD Find 7: a 5.5-inch touchscreen with the said resolution, a 5 MP front camera, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. What the chipset is clocked at isn’t mentioned, but we’re assuming Oppo wants to go all in and use 2.26 GHz – which is the maximum for that particular part.
You may have noticed that the resolution of the Find 7’s main camera is made indescifrable in the image above – and on purpose. This could make you believe that Oppo is keeping this bit of info secret because it expects to shock the world with a 50 MP sensor, but that is unlikely given how small the camera module is going to be (if the leaked renders of the Find 7, which you saw earlier, are actually real). A more likely scenario would be that Oppo is using a stacked 13 MP camera from Sony that can output images with 50 MP resolution without actually having that big of a sensor.
As for the pricing you should expect, according to mumblings from the Chinese blogosphere the base FHD model (the one detailed above) will start at 3,000 yuan, which currently amounts to approximately $488 or €351.
