The Oppo Find 9 is currently the unicorn of the Chinese smartphone world, but recent rumblings from China suggest the phone might be more than vapour.
Although I had a terrible experience with my own Oppo Find 7 (screen issues) I did enjoy the phone, and I really liked the camera performance of the time. In fact my fond memories of the device surpass the problems and I would totally have another Find model, which brings us on to this new render.
Over the past 2 years, renders and ‘leaks’ of purported Oppo Find 9 phones have appeared across the web, but it’s only the past few months that things have become really interesting.
During this time we have seen Vivo finally launch a replacement for the 2 year old Xplay 3S and Xiaomi finally launch a flagship to take over from the Mi4, so what about Oppo.
Well apparently this image shows us what the Oppo Find 9 will look like in the flesh, and as you can see it’s not all that different from the Find 7, or in fact the OnePlus One.
The render shows us the phone will have a bezel-less display, and a two tone metal chassis, with Type C USB in the base. It also appears that the Skylight notification beam has been updated to RGB.
This isn’t the only recent leak, an early one showed us specs for the Oppo Find 9 including a 5.5-inch 2K display, 16 megapixel front camera, 21 mega-pixel rear camera, 4100mAh battery and VOOC fast charging. What really stood out in those specs was a Snapdragon 821 chipset and 8GB RAM, quite the performer!
No details on a launch date, but let’s wait to see if any of these specs are the real deal or not before we get too excited.
