Not sure where to start with the Oppo Find 7? Even if you haven't heard of its predecessor, the Oppo Find 5, we've got all the details to get you up to speed. Oppo is an electronics company based in China who specializes in premium electronics, and their Find phone line is no exception to this rule. The Oppo Find 5 wowed consumers with it's stellar build quality and top-of-the-line specs when it released earlier this year, and now Oppo is following up the successful Find 5 with the Oppo Find 7. We got word of the Find 7's specs in mid-June, and it looks like those specs will likely be the final ones if this pre-order listing found on OppoMart is correct. Since the pre-order page has been taken down we've snagged the specs so that you can take a look for yourself:
- 5-inch 1080p display
- 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
- 2GB RAM
- 32GB internal storage
- 4,000 mAh battery
- 13 megapixel rear-facing camera
- 8 megapixel front-facing camera
- Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
Just as the Oppo Find 5 was top-of-the-line upon release, the Oppo Find 7 definitely fits right in with top-of-the-line phones releasing this fall. You can tick every box running down that spec sheet, and it even outdoes every phone out there when it comes to the front-facing camera and the battery. Most phones are content with a 2 MP front-facing camera, maybe pushing 3 MP if you are lucky. Oppo clearly thinks front-facing cameras are more useful than what a 2 MP shooter gives users, and are packing one the size of most rear-facing cameras right on the front of the Find 7. The 4,000 mAh battery is nearly 15% larger than even the DROID MAXX's 3500 mAh battery, and that phone is rated at a 48-hour battery life. You better believe you're going to get more than your standard 1-day battery life out of this phone!
While the name seems to suggest that this will be a phablet-sized phone with a 7-inch display, it's actually just a spec bumped Find 5 with a 5-inch 1080p display. That's 441 pixels-per-inch (PPI) for those of your out there counting. We don't expect to see the Oppo Find 7 until well into Q3 of this year, but it's listed as retailing at $700. Much like the Find 5 though, the Find 7 will likely launch in China first, moving to Europe and then maybe eventually to the US. Currently the Oppo Find 5 retails internationally for $499 (16GB model) and $549 (32GB model) at OppoStyle.
