Oppo is one of the Chinese brands that is getting a lot of attention from the international community. This is mainly because its devices are available in the international market unlike most other Chinese brands that are only available in China. Then there’s also the fact that the company makes beautiful Android smartphones such as the Oppo Find 5.
The company’s upcoming device, called the Oppo Find 7, is going to be the successor to the Find 5 (we’re still not sure why the company skipped 6). The last rumor we’ve heard regarding this device was back in June when some of its specs were revealed.
Back then we learned that the device was supposedly going to have these specs
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset
- 5-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen
- 8 MP front camera
- 13 MP rear camera
- 2 GB of RAM
- 32 GB of internal storage
- NFC support
- 4,000 mAh battery
Today fresh rumors have been released regarding this device that has changed what we have previously learned about it. The new specs include
- 5.7-inch 2,560×1,440 touchscreen
- 5 MP front camera
- 13 MP rear camera
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor
- 3 GB of RAM
- LTE support
This is definitely an improvement compared to the previous rumors we’ve learned about the device. It’s interesting to note that the company will be using the Snapdragon 805 processor which was just recently announced and will be available next year. This might mean that Oppo will not be releasing the Find 7 this year.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 is a high-end processor that uses a Krait 450 quad-core CPU able to reach speeds of up to 2.5 GHz per core. It also has a memory bandwidth of 25.6 GB/second allowing for an improved multimedia and web experience. This chip is also able to stream 4K videos.
Oppo also posted a photo on Sina Weibo, the Chinese Twitter that says “4G LTE, Oppo is ready!” While there has been no reference to the Find 7 it could very well mean that the company is working on a 4G LTE smartphone which might be the Find 7.
This is of course still a rumor and not official yet so readers are advised to take this with a grain of salt. We will be providing you fresh updates surrounding this device once it arrives.
