If you've been wondering where OPPO's 2K display smartphone has gone, wonder no more. If you're in China, that is. The Find 7 is now available for pre-orders and will start shipping in China beginning the 29th of May.
During the rash of rumors surrounding OPPO's next flagship, there were two sets of specs that were floating around. OPPO solved that mystery by unveiling not one but two Find 7 smartphones. The first one you are probably well aware of by now, the Find 7a that sported your regular mix of current generation high-end smartphone specs.
However, the real star of the show was the OPPO Find 7, which boasted of a 5.5-inch 2K display, rapid charging, and a trick to take 50 megapixel photos with only a 13 megapixel camera. OPPO isn't actually the first to have a 2K resolution screen. That title belonged to Vivo's Xplay3S, though very few probably took notice or even remember. If rumors do come to pass, we might also be seeing such high resolution screens from the LG G3 and a Galaxy S5 Prime. As for other specs, the premium Find 7 runs on the fastest 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 that Qualcomm has to offer, paired with an ample 3 GB of RAM. It already has 32 GB of internal storage but you can still augment that with a microSD card up to 128 GB if you have one. You also have a 5 megapixel front shooter for selfies and a charging time that fills up 75 percent of the battery in just 30 minutes.
So far the OPPO Find 7 has been missing in action, with most of the recent teasers going for the Find 7a. Now, however, Chinese online store Tmall has revealed the start of preorders, with shipping commencing at the end of the month. The price remains the same at 3,498 CNY, roughly $564. Unfortunately, the fate of international or US availability still remains unknown.
