The Oppo Find 7 has long been rumored to be the successor to the Find 5 launched around a year ago, and today it’s finally been confirmed to be in the works by the Chinese company itself. Although no actual details were made public, at least we can be sure of the name.
Oppo says the Find 5 “was just the beginning” on its Facebook page, where it also posted the teaser image you can see below. The latest leaked specs for the Find 7 talk about a 5.7-inch 2,560×1,440 touchscreen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM, a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front camera, and 4G LTE support. That would make it an absolute beast of a phablet, though the screen size increase compared to the Find 5 may not be appreciated by everyone.
The fact that Oppo was working on its first 4G device was made rather obvious by the company’s previous teaser from a week ago, one it posted on Sina Weibo, the service commonly known as “China’s Twitter”.
So that settles it for now, then. There’s an Oppo Find 7 coming, and it’s going to be the company’s next flagship smartphone. On the other hand, though, there may also be a Find 5 Mini in the works. This might get the model number R827, and that device got certified by the Chinese authorities recently. Here it is:
And now, a Facebook page that appears to have been created by Oppo’s arm in Vietnam comes to confirm the existence of the Find 5 Mini. The info came via a comment to a user on Facebook. The Find 5 Mini could sport a 4.7-inch 540×960 touchscreen, a 1.2 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor, 1 GB of RAM, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 2 MP front camera, all the usual connectivity options (sans 4G), and a design that’s reminiscent of the full size Find 5.
