In line with their previous announcement, China’s OPPO have made their flagship Find 7 series official in India with fairly attractive price tags.
We’ve seen and heard quite a bit about these two devices in the past (also reviewed one), after they were launched in China in March. According to OPPO, the Find 7a will be available for purchase in India starting tomorrow, i.e., June 12th. On the other hand, the higher-end 2K OPPO Find 7 will take a month before showing up on store shelves and e-commerce listings.
If for some reason you aren’t yet aware of the specifications on the Find 7 series, here’s what they come with – the higher-end Find 7 comes with a 2560 x 1440 pixel display (which naturally happens to be the USP of the device), 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage along with a microSD card slot for further expansion and a removable 3000mAh battery, capable of fast charging. Another headline-grabbing feature on the device is the 13 mega-pixel Sony IMX14 sensor that is capable of taking 50 mega-pixel shots thanks to software tricks embedded in OPPO ColorOS, based on Android v4.3.

The Find 7a, on the other hand, goes a little easy with the specs, and consequently the price tag. It comes with the same screen size, i.e., 5.5 inches, but offers a relatively lower pixel density thanks to a 1920 x 1080p resolution that fills up the screen. It’s powered by the same Snapdragon 801 SoC, but with a lower clock speed of 2.3GHz, with lesser RAM at its disposal — 2GB. The battery too gets knocked down to 2800mAh, but everything else apart from this remains identical to the higher end Find 7 including the 13 mega-pixel Sony IMX14 camera.

With a price tag of 37,990 INR, the Find 7 is all set to go on sale next month. With most flagships offering similar hardware at higher costs, the Find 7 certainly has a chance to grab a slice of the high-end market pie in India. On the other hand, the OPPO Find 7a, at 31,990 INR too looks like a decent buy, something which could give devices like the Gionee Elife E7 a run for their money.
