Oppo, the electronics manufacturer in China best known for their Blu-ray players, have confirmed that they’re working on their next flagship smartphone, the Oppo Find 7. It is an update to their current flagship, the Oppo Find 5.
According to the leaked specs, the Find 7 will retain the 5-inch 1080p screen and hardware design — which is excellent — but will improve on the internals. The handset will be powered by a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor running 4 Krait 400 cores clocked at 2.3 GHz. It will be running on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and will come with the usual customizations Oppo flavours their handsets with.
On the camera front, it will be featuring a 13 MP rear camera and a massive 8 MP front-facing camera. It is thicker than the Find 5 at 9.9 mm thickness, but it makes up for it with an amazing 4,000 mAh battery. We wish more manufacturers took cue from this and include larger capacity batteries in handsets rather than just attempt to make the phone as thin as possible.
The listing for pre-order was up on OppoMart.com (it has been removed now), but it is not an official Oppo site, so we still await official confirmation in that regard. It’s priced at $700 (~Rs 42,000), but no information on the launch date has yet been put up. This mobile is set to be launched sometime after September.
