Smartphone manufacturer Oppo has published a teaser picture letting a key feature of its forthcoming Find 7 slip. Apparently, the device will come in two versions, one with a 1080p resolution display, and the other with a 1440p screen.
Oppo has been teasing the Find 7 for a while, and has previously hinted the phone would have an impressive 1440p resolution. This equates to 2560×1440 pixels, beating all but the Vivo XPlay S3. Rumours spread the Samsung Galaxy S5 would be the first widely available smartphone with a QHD display, however Samsung has stuck with 1080p for its latest flagship.
Why has Oppo decided to release two phones? It could be because the 1440p screens are hard to produce in great numbers, and will be more expensive. A 1080p Find 7 could work out cheaper, and be easier to manufacture. Oppo’s happy to release multiple versions of its hardware, having made a special edition of the N1 with CyanogenMod software installed.
Oppo has kept quiet on the Find 7′s other features, but rumours are pointing to a massive 50-megapixel camera – easily beating Nokia’s 41-megapixel PureView camera – a Snapdragon processor, and a 5.5-inch screen. The N1, with its rotating camera lens, was an impressive and innovative smartphone, so we’re keen to see the Find 7.
We’ve not got long to wait either, as Oppo has called the press to an event on 19 March in Beijing, when it will reveal all about the Find 7.
