Early this year Oppo announced two of its latest Android smartphones that will hit the market this year. The Oppo Find 7A has already been available and now pre-orders for the Oppo Find 7 are already live. The most notable difference between both devices is that the latter model uses a higher resolution 2K (1440×2560) display while the former only has a display resolution of 1080×1920 pixels.
The Oppo Find 7 can now be pre-ordered over at OppoStyle and costs $599, a $100 increase over the 7A model. This device is expected to ship internationally by July.

Consumers looking for a device that comes with the latest high resolution display should definitely be considering this device. Although this isn’t the first Android smartphone to sport a 2K display, that title is held by the Vivo Xplay 3S, this is one of the first that is going to be made available internationally.
In terms of physical appearance the Find 7 is quite similar to the Find 7A on the front side. The back side however is a different story as the Find 7 uses a carbon textured rear panel giving it a premium feel.
The most obvious difference between both models is of course the type of display being used. Then there’s the increase of RAM from 2GB for the 7A to 3GB for the 7 and an increase of internal storage as well from 16GB to 32GB. The Find 7 also features a Snapdragon 801 chip which should provide it with the needed power. Several benchmark tests show that the Find 7A actually performs faster than the Find 7 despite having a slightly weaker processor. This could be attributed to the use of a 2K display for the Find 7. In real world scenarios though, the performance difference can’t be detected.
Other features of the Find 7 include rapid charging which provides faster charging speeds of up to 4x compared to regular chargers. A 5 minute charge of the device allows a user to make a 2 hour call while a 30 minute charge will bring the battery to 75 percent capacity. This model also comes with a Maxx audio sound enhancement by Waves which provides a great audio listening experience.
