OPPO details Find 7 “quad-HD” smartphone

24 MAR 2014

Chinese smartphone maker OPPO confirmed the release of its anticipated Find 7, which the company describes as “the first 4G/LTE device from OPPO that also supports quad-HD resolution”.

It has a 5.5-inch screen with 2560×1440 pixel resolution, giving 538 pixels per inch.

Find 7 is powered by a 2.5GHz quadcore Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage (with microSD card slot).

It has a 13 megapixel camera, with the vendor stating that this includes a “50 megapixel software enhancement feature”.

According to reports, this means capturing ten individual shots, selecting the four best, and then combining them to create a 8,160×6,120 pixel image.

Two versions will be available for “international” and “US”, with the former including both TD-LTE and LTE FDD support, and the latter LTE FDD only, albeit with additional 3G frequencies.

The company also unveiled a (slightly) lower spec Find 7a, which has a 5.5-inch HD (1920×1080) screen in place of the quad-HD unit of its sibling.

It is powered by a 2.3GHz quadcore Snapdragon processor, with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage (again with microSD expansion).

It also has a 13 megapixel camera.

It will be available with the same LTE support as Find 7 – in international and “Mexico and US” versions.

In a statement, OPPO said the device is the successor to the “award winning” Find 5, with the Find series (also including the earlier Finder) now having two million users worldwide.

Allen Wu, VP of the domestic division for Oppo, said: “It has been 15 months since the Find 5, and we are finally back.”

The company uses its own version of Android – called ColorOS – to power devices, with the version used in Find 7 based on Android 4.3.

It has previously also offered devices running CyanogenMod out-of-the-box.

Availability details for Find 7 (and Find 7a) have not so far been announced.
