even before the dust of 1080p settles on smartphones, Chinese handset maker joins the likes of the Vivo XPlay 3S in offering 2K display-equipped phone with the new Oppo Find 7. no wait. there are actually two models of Find 7; the first is the a premium Find7 which is the one with the said QHD display touting 2,560 x 1,440 resolution and the second is a more ‘regular’ model known as Find 7a aka Find 7 Lite. the premium Find 7 is powered by a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor with 3GB of system RAM and offers 32GB onboard storage, expandable up to 128GB (!) via microSD card, and has a removable 3,000 mAh battery for the device to milk from.
the Find 7a, on the other hand, comes standard with a Full HD display and is powered by a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core chip, along with hard specs such as 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSD card slot that also supports up to 128GB, and 2,800 mAh battery. common to both devices are Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for display protection, support for 4G LTE, and VOOC technology that charges the battery to 75 percent in 30 minutes. OS comes in the form of Android 4.3-based ColorOS 1.2.
quality imaging is also something the Chinese market is pretty adamant about and hence, the Find 7 gets a nice Sony-sourced 13MP CMOS sensor for the main camera, paired to Oppo’s own image processor Pure Image 2.0. there is a ‘Super Zoom’ feature, a 32-second long exposure for “crystal clear night shots” and it is capable of capturing 10 consecutive shots swiftly and automatically chooses four best shots to create a 50MP composite photo. but the latter is going to hurt your storage bad as each 50MP image is about 10MB in size. 4K videoing is also in order and so is 720p slow motion recording at 120 fps. the secondary camera is a 5MP item.
the Oppo Find 7a is available as we speak, in China, for 2,998 RMB (or about US$485) and the Find 7 is set to hit the shelves sometime between May and June for 3,498 RMB (which is around US$565). if you are up for 2K display Find 7, do keep your eyes peeled on Oppo official English language website here.
