Oppo just announced it will launch its latest flagship, the Find 7, at a press event in Beijing on March 19.
Oppo is one of the rising stars of the Chinese mobile industry, having made a name for itself with the Find 5, one of the first Full HD smartphones, and then with the wacky Oppo N1, for which the company collaborated with Cyanogen Inc. Now the company is preparing to release its new flagship, and this time, we expect a more generalist flagship, in contrast with the gigantic Oppo N1.
After a lengthy teasing campaign, Oppo announced on Google Plus the date and time of the Find 7 launch event, without providing any more details. Luckily, several leaks have revealed the core features of the Find 7, which include a Quad HD (2,560 x 1,440) 5.5-inch screen, a Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 13MP rear shooter. Oppo has baked some unique features in the N1, including a swiveling camera and a rear-mounted touchpad, but they probably won’t make it to the Find 7.
In terms of design, Oppo promoted a recent fan-made render (image above) on its social networks, suggesting there’ll be at least some resemblance between it and the real product.
With the Galaxy S5 launching on February 24, the G2 Pro coming at MWC, and the HTC M8 rumored to launch in late March, the Oppo Find 7 will be in some very select company when it comes out. In the past, Oppo has sold its flagships at attractive prices, and we expect that good pricing will be one of the Find 7’s core weapons against its competitors.
