Or could the Oppo Find 9 get the Snapdragon 821 first?


Oppo’s seemingly mythical Oppo Find 9 receives the rumour treatment this morning care of a trusted Weibo source.

It’s been 2 years since Oppo released a flagship device, but rumours that there will be a Find 9 just don’t seem to want to go away, and these latest are the most detailed to date.

With the Find 7 having been the last flagship Oppo launched it is safe to say some Oppo fans are starting to loose hope, but this year has proven that flagships sometimes do just take a little longer to launch. Proof of this comes in the form of the Vivo Xplay 5, launched after the Xplay 3S (which actually came before the Find 7), and the Xiaomi Mi5.

We’ve had Find 9 rumours before though, but what makes these different is the fact we get more of a detailed spec to go by, along with a rough diagram how the phone may look.


The first standout feature for me is the design of the Find 9 in the leaks. Imagine of the OPO received an additional camera and you wouldn’t be far off the design.

Specifications listed on the Oppo Find 9 diagram include:

  • 5.5-inch Super AMOLED 2K display.
  • Snapdragon 821 chipset.
  • 21 mega-pixel rear cameras with OIS.
  • 16 mega-pixel front camera.
  • USB Type C.
  • 4100mAh battery.
  • Super VOOC fast charting.
  • Color OS 3.0 based on Android 5.1.
  • 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.

So the specs hit all the right marks for anyone looking at a new breed of flagship device, but again this is just a rumour (although one from a known reliable source) so don’t go catching your chickens just yet.

However one detail of the Oppo Find 9 specs does strike me as genuine, and that’s the Android version. If any company this year launches a flagship phone with Android 5.1 still it’s going to be Oppo.
