Oppo has finally taken the lid off of their first LTE phone, the Find 7, and it is glorious in so many ways that it actually has lived up to the hype and may actually sell better than anyone would’ve expected. The Oppo Find 7 is a 5.5" phone featuring an industry first 2560 x 1440 resolution display, also known as 1440p or WQHD. While MANY outlets have inappropriately labeled this as QuadHD or Quad HD, they are in fact very very wrong as that would actually be 3840 x 2160. Either way, a 2560 x 1440 display is the same resolution that the 27" Apple Cinema displays feature and as a result, you get a PPI of 538 as a result of packing so many pixels into a 5.5" screen. Obviously this IPS display is going to be the star of the Oppo Find 7, but they didn’t just stop with having an amazing display.
They also made the Oppo Find 7 their first LTE smartphone with the use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, which gives them the ability to ship an international LTE, North American LTE and Indonesian LTE version of the phone. And because they are utilizing the Snapdragon 801 they are able to do some pretty interesting image processing with the 13 Megapixel camera. There were initially rumors that the Oppo Find 7 would have a 50 Megapixel camera, which sounded ludicrous, but now we know that isn’t necessarily false. Instead of packing a 50 Megapixel camera sensor, they are using some unique software stitching to create 50 Megapixel images using the 13 Megapixel camera sensor and the Snapdragon 801’s unique image processing pipeline. The camera will also be capable of capturing 4K video, which used to be reserved for only the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, until the Sony Xperai Z2 came out, and now the Oppo Find 7 as well. It also features an impressive 5 Megapixel front-facing camera with an 80 degree viewing angle which allows it to take in much higher resolution and more encompassing videos and ‘selfies’.
It will also ship with 32 GB of internal storage as well as have expandable storage of up to 128 GB thanks to MicroSDXC support on the Snapdragon 801. It will also have a 3000 mAh removable battery which they claim can also be charged up to 75% in 30 minutes using the VOOC fast charging system. Obviously, I would expect this to affect the battery’s overall longevity and long term ability to hold charge, but since it is removable that is less of a concern than it would be with a non-removable battery.
