DONGGUAN, China – Oppo has launched its long-awaited Oppo Find 7, that comes with heavily loaded specs that include a camera capable to stitching 50-megapixel images.
The Find 7 from Oppo is a successor to the Find 5 and will be available in two separate variants. The base model known as the Find 7a or the Find 7 Lite has similar specs to the high-end variant but differs in terms of chipset, RAM, storage and resolution.
The smartphone contains the world’s second QHD display, which corresponds to a resolution of 2 560 × 1 440 pixels. The camera for the device is certainly unique: even thought the sensor captures 13MP images, it can take images of 50MP with the help of a SuperZoom mode, that allows users to take 10 images in quick succession and then merges them to give a 50MP image resolution. The unit can record 4K video and 720p HD slow motion clips at 120fps.
The premium variant of the Oppo Find 7 sports a 5” display with QHD resolution and Gorilla Glass 3, the above mentioned camera, a 5MP front facing camera, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, 3GB RAM, 3 000mAh battery, 32GB of internal storage, and microSD support. The device also sports MaxxAudio speakers with improved bass quality. The premium version comes with various connectivity options including Wi-Fi, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC.
The Find 7 Lite or the Find 7a has similar specs except for a 1080p full HD touchscreen, a 2.3GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB RAM, a 2 800mAh battery, and 16GB of storage storage.
The devices run Oppo’s own Color OS 1.2 that is based on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. They measure 152.6x75x9.2 mm and come with a fast charging technology that powers 75% of the battery in just 30 minutes.
The Find 7a will be available from mid-April in the international market for $499 while the premium model could be seen in May or June at $599. The Oppo Find 7 is already available in Chinese markets where the Find 7a is priced at 2 988 Yuan and the premium model at 3 498 Yuan.
