I don’t presume you took Oppo very seriously when they suggested their forthcoming Find 7 smartphone would be “greater” than Samsung’s Galaxy S5. But surely you started paying attention when the China-based OEM revealed the device was capable of taking 50 MP snapshots.
Technically, that’s not entirely true, as Find 7’s rear-facing camera ultimately comes with a humdrum 13 MP sensor in tow. Yet thanks to a “Super Zoom” function, users can merge ten regular photos into a massive 50 MP pic.
Not impressed? Maybe the 5.5-inch IPS LCD panel boasting Quad HD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) resolution on the newly unveiled handheld will do the trick. Or how about a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 chip found so far only inside the GS5? 3 GB RAM, aka 1 gig north of S5’s memory?
It’s almost starting to sound like Oppo had a point with the “greater than S5” claims. And we’re not done yet. The Find 7 packs 32 GB built-in storage as standard, offers microSD expansion possibilities, and is more than friendly to selfie addicts, with a 5 MP front camera.
Oh, and the user removable 3,000 mAh battery might not feel groundbreaking, but it features rapid charging technology. Specifically, you can plug the gadget in for a mere half an hour, and then enjoy a 75 percent charge.
For the record, this is the “Premium” Find 7 version we’re putting under the microscope, with a “Standard” model, dubbed Find 7a, also due out in March. The lower-end variant ain’t a pushover either, swapping the 2K display for Full HD and ditching 1 GB RAM.
Amazingly, the high-end Android 4.3-based Find 7 will cost the equivalent of $565 in China, and the Find 7a shall go on sale for roughly $485. Oh, wow, Oppo seems to have trumped Samsung, as well as Sony or LG, hard. Too bad Western availability is bound to be patchy.
