Oppo Find 7, rumours, specifications and release date


The last rumours we heard surrounding the Oppo Find 7 were a possible launch during this months MWC in Barcelona, with just a few weeks to go before the start of the event we thought it would be a good time to revisit all the rumours and details surrounding this flagship device!

Oppo Find 7 Mems camera

It was originally believed that the Oppo Find 7 would be the first phone to ever get a Mems Camera. A Mems camera would have been a huge boost to the phone as it is smaller, faster and more energy-efficient when compared to traditional mobile phone cameras.

Oppo even signed a deal with Digital Optics to become the first manufacturer to use the tech but since then the company has announced bankruptcy! Does this mean Mems will no longer be on the Find 7, or has manufacture moved over to another company who will supply the advanced sensors?

Oppo Find 7 SD card

It’s clear to see that Oppo plan to launch one of the most advanced smartphones on the market, but one of the killer features might be something we don’t normally associate with flagship devices! Chinese sources are talking about the possibility of the Find 7 getting external SD card memory expansion! A feature phone fans have been calling for for years!

Oppo Find 7 Super Display 2.0

Like other Chinese phone makers, Oppo seem to have put a lot of effort in to choosing a display for the Find 7 which will make operation a joy. According to teasers released by both Oppo China and Oppo International, the display on the Find 7 will be a Super Display 2.0 which will benefit from having a tough laminated coating (possibly Corning Gorilla Glass 3), and an ultra sensitivity allowing users to operate the phone with gloves and even with wet hands.

Oppo Find 7 display size and resolution

Many were worried that the 7 in the Find 7 name would mean a 7-inch display would be used. This has proven not to be the case as Oppo have confirmed that the panel on the flagship phone will be a 5.5-inch unit. As for resolution it has also been confirmed to be a full 2K 2560 x 1440 resolution unit with an amazing pixel density of 538ppi.

Oppo Find 7 metal frame

The Oppo Find 5 was praised for it’s sturdy construction which centres around a metal chassis. This has also been suggested for the Oppo Find 7 with leaked photos of the purported part even showing up.

Oppo Find 7 4G LTE

The Oppo Find 7 has been confirmed to have 4G LTE, it will also more than likely have support for GSM, WCDMA, and TD-SCDMA. Although not confirmed we believe that the Oppo Find 7 will support most LTE categories except Verizon’s (much like the OnePlus One phone).

Oppo Find 7 CPU and memory

We are 100% sure that Oppo will stick with Qualcomm for the Find 7, we just aren’t sure if it will get the latest Snapdragon 805 or the current Snapdragon 800. Oppo have already proved that they are happy to ship their latest hardware with older processors (see the Oppo N1 with Snapdragon 600) but will this be the case for their flagship device? As for RAM we are confident the Find 7 will get at least 3GB RAM.

Oppo Find 7 release date and pricing

If sources in China are to be believed then the Oppo Find 7 will launch at MWC later this month, and will go on international release a few months later. Pricing is expected to be around $599 USD for international customers with a slightly lower price for Chinese fans.

    $600? They must be smoking some of that new s***
    I won’t even pay $600 for a Galaxy Note 3, & I really like those phones because I have the predecessor. In fact everybody in the family has one…

        • February 4, 2014

          All glass and alloy body, plus the 2ghz octacore

            I’m just about to buy a Nexus 5, if I have any spare cash I’ll buy the iOcean X8 as well (when it comes out), to see if it functions as good as it looks.

      What is wrong with you? Even the Xbox One and Play Station 4 don’t cost that much. In the US, you can find NEW Galaxy Note 3’s 32GB for about $300 on Craigslist… LOL your eagerly waiting to pay more for a smartphone that is over priced.

      The more we accept these prices, the more these companies will feel that they can and will raise prices on consumers! I say NO!

      • Ivo Carvalho
        February 4, 2014

        You know there’s a whole world beside the US, right?
        And since I’m European and most tech brands love to do a 1:1 change rate, our prices are more like this:

        – PS4 – 540 dollar
        – Xbox One – 676 dollar
        – Galaxy Note 3 – 1016 dollar (unlocked)
        – iPhone 5S 16GB – 946 dollar (unlocked)

        Oppo is one of the few brands that respects the european costumer, so a Oppo Find 7 will cost 600 dollar.

          Brand new Note 3 easily costs above 650 here in Canada. In the States, it will cost around 600-700. I do believe that the Find 7, if it will have LTE and Snapdragon 805, not to mention better built quality than Samsung, it is fairly priced at 600 🙂

              I don’t get why you compare the price of a new, unreleased phone to a used phone?

              A high-end phone without contract would cost about same in US. As a Swede, I think $600 is would be a decent price.

              Several family members including extended family have followed my lead over the years. Purchasing like new smartphones, mostly note 2’s and s3’s and having them flashed to Boost Mobile $35 per month unlimited everything plan. I’m sure it is not a bad idea, because I’ve made a living from buying like new phones and selling them on ebay for quite a bit more lol. But yes to compare the 2 might be looked at as un fair. I am just pointing out that I feel even though these devices are new they’re still overpriced in my opinion.

              To reinforce Alex’s Point:

              Regardless of branding, why pay $600 for a phone that costs on average $165 – $185USD to build?

              That my friends is the hidden point that Alex is making whether he realizes it or not!

              Personally I do not like used or refurbished of anything. I buy Chinese (ZOPO) because the specs suit my needs and the price is affordable.

              Consumers should always look for production cost information versus actual sale price info and when you find products with +300% mark up (apple & samsung), then, boycott them and let them stay on the shelves.

              When we do that, we take back our buying power!

              Let me ask you a question, would you consider a galaxy note 2 a high end smart phone 1 to 1-1/2 years ago? Well I was getting these back then for 200 bucks apiece give or take a bit. Albeit they weren’t brand spanking new, but they sure looked/acted like new. I try to make it a point not to buy “man handled” items, they must look like new, or very close to it.

            • zaikatanox
              February 4, 2014

              Even in the US (and Canada), that kind of price for the kind of specs the OPPO Find 7 is offering would be pretty decent. They have good built quality and awesome specs.

              Samsung and Apple are overpriced, a lot of people (though not everyone) seem to share the same opinion. If, like Alex, you can find used ones for cheap, then good for you, but when we talk about how good a value a phone is, we’re talking about the price to buy the device brand new. If we’re talking about availability, then it’s a different story, and you may argue used prices.

              Chinese devices (provided they’re not Shanzhai clone crap) are really good nowadays, and durable (I’ve used some of Chinese brands and Chinese-made [not necessarily brands] electronics for years without issues), but I concede that international availability and brand recognition are severely lacking, especially for the phones.

            • Alex
              February 4, 2014

              I agree with most of what you say. Samsung and Apple are overpriced, unless I win the lottery. Eventually I will be getting my hands on a white 32gb note 3, for the price I want…
              I refuse to pay high prices for a Phablet though.

            like you said, its from craiglist
            theres no guarantee or anything,
            it might even be a clone

            • Alex
              February 4, 2014

              For me personally I’ve bought and sold a lot of Samsung smartphones, so I would be meeting face to face with these Craigslist sellers. So I know I personally wouldn’t get scammed by purchasing a clone. For others that live overseas or in another state I can understand their concerns.

              In the same respect you do understand that a lot of the products that come out of China don’t always live up to what’s on paper. I can attest to this because I purchased a 7 inch tablet phone from a company called No. 1. They lied about the processor being a quad core, they lied about it having two gigs of ram, and it was a big piece of crap with horrible battery life.

          • Ivo Carvalho
            February 4, 2014

            Tech brands (Sony, Microsoft, Apple, Samsung…) to a Euro to Dollar exchange on the 1:1 rate, when in reality its 1€:1.35Dollar, its almost 35% increased price. Oppo doesn’t do this, charging the EU costumers the fair price for their products. So the Find 7 is a bargain to us…

        • Alex
          February 4, 2014

          If you have access to Amazon then I don’t see why you can’t purchase game consoles for lower prices. There was recently a bunch of the xbox one’s selling for the low to mid $400’s

          • Ivo Carvalho
            February 4, 2014

            The problem is the customs of our countries.
            If we buy something online from within EU we do not pay taxes.
            If I dare to buy something from US I get at least 23% taxes over the final price (including delivery costs) plus a defined value for the customs agents… I live in Portugal…

              I feel bad for for people who have to go through bullshit like that! Countries should not do that to people who live there. This among other reasons, push people to move to other countries that treat people better…

    $599!? Fail! For this people can buy any other phone with better country warranty support!?

    • Bart
      February 4, 2014

      For those specs USD 600 seems reasonable, but I need to know all specs: camera, flash, 64GB, USB?, dual sim parallel?, etc. Warranty support will be lousy (I ordered and paid for an Orientphone Mega 6.5 and received a Firefly), but that shortcoming is included in the price.

      3GB RAM
      Metallic,at least the frame,high quality polycarbonate otherwise [refer to N1]
      Latest Snapdragon
      Latest Camera
      Latest pretty much everything else
      SD Card [OPPO normally don’t do this]

      Please point out ANY phone that is CHEAPER for the same. Good Luck

    Like the article with everything together. Hurry up MWC.
    Eagerly awaiting the actual Find 7 itself, surely it’s going to be the phone to have. Actually need a new phone now I’ve got a 4G plan. Don’t really want to buy a Sony Z1/Z2, and don’t like Samsung, I can’t wait for the one plus, Xplay 3S is of unknown build quality.
    805 would be amazing. Camera, I guess the 21mp Sony unit would do but hoping for something unusual like mems or infra red support – would make night driving safer.

    So so expensive…IMHO
