Oppo, a Chinese mobile phone manufacturer, has been rather popular lately as they have been releasing a lot of premium devices and the Oppo Find 7 is announce phone to add to this record of theirs. The Find 7 is the first phone to come with a QHD display (2560 x 1440 pixels) which packs 538ppi. All of this is packing into a 5.5″ display protected by Gorilla Glass 3 for protection which also allows for user to use their device with wet hands.
Inside of the Oppo Find 7 you will find a 3.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, an Adreno 330 GPU, 32GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot to allow for storage expansion. On the rear side of the phone you will find a 13MP Sony IMX214 CMOS camera with a F/2.0 and an LED flash. This camera is capable of recording 4K video while also being able to record slow-motion video clips in 720p at 120fps. One addition to the camera is a piece of software that Oppo calls “Super Zoom.” This feature has the Find 7 take 10 separate photographs and the merges them together to create a 50MP image which will then allow the user to zoom in without getting so much pixelation. Finally, there is a 5MP front-facing camera for all of those selfies you might want to take.
Before we get into more details about the phone, it is worth mentioning that Oppo will also be releasing a slightly downgraded very of the Find 7 along side of the QHD version. This model will have a 1080p display, downgraded CPU and GPU, only 2GB of RAM, and only 16GB of built-in storage. The camera and all of its features will remain the same on both devices.
Now with either of the builds, there has to be some amazing battery to power this device right? That is correct. The QHD Find 7 will have a 3000mAh battery while the fullHD will only have a 2800mAh battery. Both phones will come packed with an Oppo feature called VOOC which allows for the batteries to be charges up to 75% in only 30 minutes.
A very interesting physical feature on the Find 7 is that the notification light has been replaced with a “breathing” notification bar which is located on the bottom lip of the device. Also, the navigation buttons will be capacitive touch buttons that are located right above the notification light bar.
Both phones will come packed with the LTE radios so that they can stay connected to the world and have the fastest internet speeds possible. In addition to this both will also come equipped with NFC chips so that they can quickly connect to NFC enabled devices.
Oppo has also decided to focus on the sound that comes from the Find 7. Packed inside are special MaxxAudio speakers which are supposed to deliver spectacular bass and audio. Installed on the device will be an application called MaxxEq which will allow the user to fine tune the sound to however they like it.
ColorOS 2.1, Oppo’s skinned version of Android, will be shipping with the Find 7s. While this is a nice skin compared to some of the heavier skins from Samsung or HTC, you can be sure that the hacking community will have a CyanogenMod or other ROM running on this device soon after it comes to market.
To finish it all off, the phones will both come in at a measurement of 152.6 x 75 x 9.2 mm with a weight of 173 and 170 grams. The QHD variant will obviously be heavier to account for the larger battery. The QHD Find 7 will be for sale at 3,498 CNY (~$565 USD) while the FHD variant will be available for 2,998 CNY (~$480 USD). If you are interested in buying one of these devices, the FHD Find 7 will be available tomorrow while the QHD model will not be available until May or June.
Since every other manufacture seems to be bringing their own smart watches / fitness bands to market, Oppo has decided to do the same thing. Their band is called the O-Band and it can be worn to track sleeping patterns and fitness records. In addition to that the O-Band has a vibration motor inside which can notify you about alarms or incoming notifications.
