The Oppo Find 7 Might be “the” Phone To Beat This Year


There are a lot of high end flagship devices coming down the pipe, but I’d have to say the Oppo Find 7 takes the cake in the bad ass department going into spring 2014. These were the kind of specs and uniqueness I was expecting to see at MWC 2014. While the Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, and other devices being announced are absolutely nothing to sneeze at, I’d have to say that out of the bunch of flagships announced, the Oppo Find 7 is the phone I’m most excited to get my paws on. The 1440p display, 50MP photos (through digital resampling), and the 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor (MSM8974AC) instantly caught my attention.

Chinese manufacturer Oppo will be releasing two versions of the Find 7. The lower end version will be named the Oppo Find 7a sporting a 1080p display (lol at the lower end version having a 1080p display), which will be released mid-April. The higher end Find 7 will be released in May or June.

The higher end 1440p display Oppo Find 7 will have a 5.5-inch display with a QHD (2560×1440) resolution and a PPI of 538 (you read that right, 538 PPI), a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor (MSM8974AC), 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 3000mAh battery. Wow! While the lower end 1080p Oppo Find 7a will be sporting a 5.5 inch 1080p display, 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a 2800mAh baterry. And Wow again!

Love it or hate it, both devices will be showing off Oppo’s ColorOS. If you’re a hater of Oppo’s ColorOS, I would guess, since this is an Oppo device we’ll have some CyanogenMod based ROM’s and hopefully other AOSP based ROM’s for the Find 7 before too long.

So, what have we learned today? Oppo is looking to make their mark this year in the mobile industry, and what a mark they’re going to leave with the Oppo Find 7! We have the LG G Pro 2, Samsung Galaxy S5, the new HTC One (M8), and the Oppo Find 7 coming at us very soon. Looking at the specs on the Oppo Find 7, I think there’s a lot of us that will automatically crown it king and “the” phone to beat in 2014, but anyone that has owned a Moto X knows it’s not always about specs when crowning a king.

So, which one of the above phones will you be getting or looking forward to the most? If there’s a phone I didn’t mention that you’re looking forward to, let us know in the comments (and get out of here with the iPhone 6!). Come May-June, I’ll be letting you all know what I think of the 1440p Oppo Find 7.
