The Chinese smartphone developer Oppo just upped the ante in the smartphone world. They officially unveiled their new Find 7 flagship device. Most of its internal specs are phenomenal, especially the camera. Here's a breakdown:

  • 5.5-inch 2,5601,440 touchscreen with 538ppi density (can be operated with wet hands and includes Gorilla Glass 3)
  • 13MP Camera - IMX214 Sony Sensor with dual LED flash and an aperture of f/2.0 - includes a Super Zoom Mode which can merge 10 rapid shots into a single 50MP image - record 4K video, as well as 720p HD slow-motion clips at 100 fps
  • 5 MP front camera
  • 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor (MSM8974AC)
  • 3 GB of RAM
  • 32 GB of internal storage space
  • A microSD card slot

  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC
  • 3,000 mAh battery
  • Weighs 173 grams
  • Color OS 1.2, (Custom Oppo UI based on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean)



Intriguingly, the Find 7 wasn't just one device. Oppo actually outed two smartphones. The second is a "less premium" version called the Find 7a. Here are it's specs:

  • 5.5-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen
  • The same camera technology found in the Find 7
  • 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor (MSM8974AB)
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • 16 GB of internal storage
  • 2,800 mAh battery
  • Weighs 170 grams
  • Color OS 1.2, (Custom Oppo UI based on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean)

Both devices will be available in China starting tomorrow. The Find 7a will launch internationally in mid-April for $499 USD. The "Premium" Find 7 will go on sale in May or June for $599 USD. Many of us here at HQ are crossing our fingers that this device comes to the US.
