Chinese manufacturer Oppo finally unveiled its latest flagship device on Wednesday; the Oppo Find 7, a cutting edge phablet that features specs many had initially hoped to see on the Samsung Galaxy S5.
If you have never heard of Oppo, you might want to give them a closer look. The Oppo Find 5 and Oppo N1 were both highly praised by Chinese and western critics, and now the company is looking to capitalize on that reputation as they expand into more markets.
The high-end variant of the Find 7 features a 5.5-inch QHD display, with a resolution of 2560×1440, beating LG and every other major OEM to the punch. Aside from the gorgeous display, this phablet is powered by the slightly improved Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset clocked at 2.5 GHz with an Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The device comes standard with 32GB of storage, expandable up to 160GB via MicroSD.
So what about that controversial 50MP camera you ask? As it turns out, the Find 7 is actually equipped with a 13MP Sony sensor that is capable of taking 10 photos at once and stitching them together, giving you a final resolution of 8160×6120.
One other notable feature is the 3,000mAh battery with rapid charge capability, allowing the phablet to be recharged by 70 percent in only 30 minutes. However the most astounding feature of them all is the price. The Oppo Find 7 is expected to only cost around $599, which is a very good deal for a flagship device with such impressive hardware.
For those who don’t require high end features, Oppo will be releasing a Full HD version of the Find 7, the Find 7A, with a more modest price tag of $499. The standard version will also have a plastic back compared to the premium model’s carbon battery enclosure.
Either way, both devices run Oppo’s custom Color OS based on Android 4.3 and is immediately available in China with a global release expected in mid-April.
