Oppo's Find 7: FHD or QHD Display, Take Your Choice

Some manufacturers love to send out "teasers" when their new devices are coming close to being announced - Samsung is the master teaser, followed by LG, and now, the NKOB (new kid on the block), Oppo. Yesterday they sent out a teaser that their new Oppo Find 7 would be unveiled on March 19 2014, and today it seems they will release two versions of the device - one sporting a FHD display with a 1920x1080 resolution and a QHD with 2560x1440 resolution...either that or Oppo made a grave grammatical error in their latest teaser - using the word [are] rather than [is].

It has long been known that Oppo's next flagship would be using JDI's (Japan Display Inc.) 5.5-inch, QHD's 538ppi display panel which is reported to be even sharper than the competition's Vivo Xplay 3S's 6-inch QHD display.  However, in the latest benchmark of the Oppo 7, the numbers show a GFXBench with a FHD, 1080p display, along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and Android 4.3.

Engadget has checked again with their sources and confirmed that the Oppo Find 7 will indeed come with the two display options, either hoping to please everyone - the techies that want those higher specs, necessary or not, and the vast majority of users, that go into the store to pick out a "nice" phone...don't you just hate those kind...just kidding!  I am in the group that thinks that "more is better," although sometimes I will settle for less, if I do not feel that it makes a real difference and the price is right.  Knowing how my older eyes are failing me, I really question if the QHD is really necessary, however, I think this step up is as far as the displays need to go in relation to resolution, but I would love to have these two Oppo Find 7 models side-by-side to see if I could tell a difference.

As far as the rest of the specifications we have heard conflicting news - on one hand, we heard that they would both have the Snapdragon 800 quad-core SoC clocked at 2.3MHz and Android 4.3, and others claim that the specs may be different between the two devices. I am surprised to see it being released over a month from now, not having Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box - that is one spec that will not bode well with the U.S. users...techies I mean.
