Hold the phone (pun intended), all you potential Samsung Galaxy S5 or LG G Pro 2 adopters, as a dark horse contender may arise from China and steal the two beasts’ thunder. And ironically, it could do so at next month’s Mobile World Congress, the go-to event for high-profile mobile product announcements.
Oppo, the up-and-coming OEM responsible for the swanky and somewhat unorthodox N1 handheld, has been known to work on a next-gen flagship device for many months now, teasing and boosting the Find 7 hype with plenty of exquisite tidbits.
It’s thus nearly set in stone the Find 7 shall sport Quad HD (aka 2K, aka 2,560 x 1,440 pixels) resolution, while 3 GB of RAM and a 4,000 mAh battery are just some of the other top-notch features rumored. But how much could something like that cost? And is Oppo really reaching out for world fame, or simply trying to make waves on the domestic market?
As it turns out, the company is indeed looking to make a name for itself in the West, otherwise they wouldn’t swing by MWC in Barcelona. And get this, the Find 7 could be priced at a measly $600. Measly by high-end standards, of course, and considering the much less impressive N1 is roughly valued the same.
For the $600, tipsters claim you’ll score not only incredible resolution, but also Snapdragon 800 juice, microSD support, 4G LTE speeds, a state-of-the-art 13 MP MEMS rear snapper and 5 MP front camera. All wrapped up in a large 5.5-inch package. Be afraid, Samsung and LG, be very afraid.
