Find 7 2014 Hands on AA-1180607

Just last week, Oppo officially announced the Find 7, revealing that the handset will be offered in two different versions: one with a 1080p display and another with a massively impressive QHD resolution. At the time, Oppo also revealed that the 1080p model would arrive on the scene first, at the beginning of April for a price of $499. The QHD model is expected to arrive by the end of next month, at a higher $599 price point.

For those that aren’t sold on the idea of a QHD display but are interested in the Oppo Find 7, Oppo has now confirmed the Find 7a will be up for pre-order on the 7th of April. Oppo teases that they will be offering special promotions to customers during the ‘pre-sale period’ and encourages us to stay tuned to their Google+ or Facebook page for further details as they arrive.

So what does the Find 7a bring to the table as far as specs are concerned? The handset will be powered by a Snapdragon 800 CPU with 2GB of RAM. There’s also 16GB storage, microSD, a 13MP camera and Color OS (based on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean).

For even more details on what to expect from the Find 7, be sure to check out our full coverage. Also be sure to take a look at some of our hands-on videos:

What do you think, are you interested in picking up the Oppo Find 7? If so, will you get the 1080p model or do you plan to get the QHD variant?

    Or you can spend $150 more for the M8 One. . .

    • Juan Prieto

      For what specific reason would you spend more for a lesser phone in every aspect with the exception of speakers

      • JonDuke19

        I’m sorry… but the Snap801 is better than the 800. The 1080p is the same on both.. so is the 2Go of ram.

        If you prefer Sense UI or double cameras.. why not?

        • Juan Prieto

          mmm YES! And that is why the Find 7 has an 801 chip with 2.5 ghz, 2k screen and 3 g of ram… But I agree with you completely the M8 is a great phone but the camera in specific was the turning point for me to go with the Oppo

          • Lee

            You’re thinking of the flagship. This one is the Find 7a which has a 1080p screen, S800 and 2GB RAM.

            This is from Oppo’s website.

            It’s probably a mistake. Find 7A has a Snapdragon 800, not an 801.

          • raganror

            It’s not a mistake. The MSM8974AB is also a Snapdragon 801, just with a very minor difference in the CPU-clock.

          • Dragon Emperor

            Incorrect, the Find 7a has a S801 2.3ghz. It’s on the official website unde specs.

        • David Miao

          Yes. the 801 is better than the 800.
          Because it totally isn’t just an 800 that is clocked slightly higher. You will totally see the real world differences between an 800 and 801.

        • Airyl

          It’s just that the Find 7 QHD is $50 less than the M8, and has better specs than it, apart from the speakers and build (although the Find 7’s carbon fibre and aluminum frame are pretty sweet too). The dimensions aren’t too far apart either, despite the M8 having a 5-inch display. The Find 7A is more comparable to the Nexus 5.

        sarcasm. . . it was sarcasm.

    • Gwanatu

      And get a sub-par camera. To each his own.

  • carlosfrancoz

    Nice, but pre-order just for China? Or we can get it here in America?

    • Josh Hurt

      Carlos, I’m 95% sure the pre-order date is for America as the Find 7a has been available to buy in China since March 20th. I am excited to get my hands on this phone! I just hope I can remap those hardware buttons.

      • carlosfrancoz

        Thanks! Currently is not working “for my region” and I live in America -_-

  • no more $500+ phones for me

    Jelly bean? No thank you
