Oppo has been one of the more successful China-based smartphone manufacturers last year, and same can be said for the first quarter this year as well. The company has managed to sell 50 million smartphones in 2015, and they’ve managed to fight their way to the top 3 smartphone manufacturing companies in China in Q1 2016. The Oppo R7 and R7 Plus were immensely successful for the company last year, and Oppo introduced their successors earlier this year, the Oppo R9 and R9 Plus. That being said, we’ve been waiting to hear more about the Oppo-branded flagship, and a new leak gives us more insight for sure, read on.
The Oppo X9007 was recently certified by AnTuTu, and as you can see, this device sports really interesting specs. The benchmarked Oppo X9007 features a fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. This handset is fueled by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor, along with the Adreno 530 GPU. The 16-megapixel snapper can be found on its back, and a 4-megapixel camera is located up front. Android 6.0 Marshmallow has also been listed by AnTuTu, and on top of it, you’ll be able to find Oppo’s custom Android-based UI (ColorOS), as always.
Now, the question remains, what device hides behind the Oppo X9007 model name? Well, according to AnTuTu’s Weibo page, this could be a new variant of Oppo’s Find 7 handset, rather than the all-new Find 9 flagship phablet. The Oppo Find 7 was introduced back in 2014 as the company’s flagship phablet, and the more affordable Find 7a followed soon after. So, where’s the Oppo Find 9 then? Well, a recent rumor suggested that it might launch in June, and the device itself surfaced back in December, though we don’t know how legit that image was. Either way, the Oppo Find 9 is expected to ship with 6GB of RAM on the inside and a QHD display, so the Oppo X9007 we’re looking at definitely looks like a new variant of the Find 7, rather than the Oppo Find 9. Either way, both of these devices are expected to land in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more info, as usual.
