Oppo Find 7 Unveiled – 5.5″ 2K Display, Snapdragon 801, and 50MP Photos

Oppo

For those interested in checking out a phone with an insane set of specs, the Find 7 from Oppo has arrived this week. The device, which many rumored to be an absolute beast in the specs department, is nothing short of that. The device, which is now up for pre-order marked at ¥3498.00 ($565 USD according to Google) for the high-end model, features specs which we had initially hoped to see on the Galaxy S5. 

Real quickly, do note that there are four versions of the Find 7 as listed on Oppo’s website. Two models feature a 5.5″ 1080p display, as well as the same list of specs seen on the higher-end models. Since they are just 1080p though, we are going to focus on the other devices.

The high-end variants of the Find 7 feature 5.5″ QHD displays, with a resolution sitting at 2560 x 1440. For the mathematicians out here, that’s 538ppi. A few may argue that any pixel density that high is indistinguishable to the human eye, but poo-poo to those party poopers.

Beyond the crazy display, the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, features 3GB of RAM, a 13MP Sony sensor along its backside, 32GB of storage, a 3,000mAh battery, Gorilla Glass 3, microSD expansion with support up to 128GB, 4G LTE connectivity, capacitive touch keys (ouch), and comes shipped with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

The interesting thing about the camera is its ability to shoot a still of up to 50MP. The way it achieves this is that the user snaps a still, in which the phone captures roughly 10 different images, then stitches them together into a huge photo.  At “50MP,” the end resolution is 8,160 x 6,120, perfect for your next billboard rental.

    Both of these phones are 2K, however only one of them is QHD

  • Robert Boluyt

    So close . . .

  • Danny

    Shipping with 4.3??? Wtf what’s so hard about shipping with 4.4 cmon seriously oppo is stupid

  • LiiIiikEaBau5

    50MP of ASS!

  • Mchl496

    No 4g or CDMA compatibility on any of their phones.. Nice but no sale.

    • T_Dizzle

      This phone has 4G LTE.

    50MP: The ideal size for uploading to Facebook.

  • joejoe5709

    Very nice. There’s not much to dislike here. It’s a little large, but I guess that resolution makes more sense on a larger screen anyway. 4.3 Jelly Bean is a disappointment, but not a deal breaker for me. Honestly for a phone that large and a resolution that high, I would have liked a teensy bit larger battery. Capacitive keys are also annoying to me. In the end though, I have a feeling we’re not far off from seeing similar specs from LG or maybe even Samsung and I’d much rather have something from a more major OEM.

  • QPHALO

    Those of you who have owned an Oppo, how is the quality? Does everything seem to last and do well or do you have problems after a few months like dead pixels, crap battery, phone falling apart?

    • Suman Gandham

      Would like to know this also please :)

  • Tony Byatt

    Good looking device…

    For me it would be the undisputed 2014 champ thus far if the soft keys were the Android standard, had an UI a little more closer to stock, and had Kit Kat at launch…

  • http://Google.com/+boojay boo Jay

    Yaaaaawn

  • WitnessG

    This phone has no drawbacks what so ever imo. Oppo is going to upgrade it to 4.4 so theres no reason to really worry about it having 4.3.

  • Chris Lee

    You do realize that 2K and 1080 are almost indistinguishable, right? And that 2560 x 1440 is higher resolution than 2K (2048 × 1080).

    • hoosiercub88

      But but but… specs we need moar specs!!!

    • IrishSid

      I don’t get why they’ve changed to the horizontal lines way of measuring things.
      I was under the impression 2k was 1080p and 4k was 4320p

      • Chris Lee

        Using horizontal resolution to characterize the technology marks a switch from the previous generation, high definition television, which categorized media according to vertical resolution (1080i, 720p, 480p, etc.). 2K is essentially 1080p, it is just slightly wider aspect ratio (1.90:1) like what you see in cinema. 1080p is the 16:9 aspect ratio for televisions, and is a compromise between 4:3 (old tv) and 1.90:1 (cinema) standards. 4K is 4096 × 2160 using the 1.90:1 cinema standard, however there are other variants out there. 4K UHD for TV is 3840 × 2160, and conforms to the 16:9 standard. Why we cant adopt the same ratio for cinema and TV is beyond me.

      • Chris Lee

        The Digital Cinema Initiatives consortium established a standard resolution of 4096 pixels × 2160 lines (8.8 megapixels, aspect ratio ~17:9) for 4K film projection. This is the native resolution for DCI-compliant 4K digital projectors and monitors; pixels are cropped from the top or sides depending on the aspect ratio of the content being projected. The DCI 4K standard has twice the horizontal and vertical resolution of DCI 2K, with four times as many pixels overall. DCI 4K does not conform to the standard 1080p Full HD aspect ratio (16:9), so it is not a multiple of the 1080p display.

        Then there is also CinemaScope (4096 × 1716 or 2.39:1) which looks very wide and thin compared to HDTV.

  • Dave

    The first phone featuring 56MB JPEGs.

  • Adrynalyne

    It doesn’t shoot 50MP as the article states. Its just a software trick.

    • needa

      it is still a pretty good software trick. it produces some pretty good detail and picks up things that only the likes of the 1020 will see.

      • Adrynalyne

        Oh, I am fine with it, just thinks its misleading.

        It can process 50MP images. To be fair, the 1020 does similar. It isn’t a 41MP shooter.

        • needa

          right-o

        • Flyinion

          Where are you getting that info? The 1020 does have a 41MP sensor. Depending on what aspect ratio you choose (4:3 or 16:9) you get 38 or 34MP for the final product because it’s cropped out of the sensor space which is apparently a circle. There’s no stitching together of multiple photos like the Oppo though. One picture and done. I mean who really wants to stand still while the phone takes 10 photos?

          • Adrynalyne

            Apologies. I got caught up in some comments here and another blog without checking mah facts.

            /me slaps hand.

  • Miguel

    +Android please take note, this are the specs I want in the Nexus 6:
    Snapdragon 801 chipset, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP Sony sensor along its backside, 32GB of storage, a 3,000mAh battery, Gorilla Glass 3, 2K Resolution on 5in Sony or HTC body.

    • Adrynalyne

      Why not 805 at that point?

    • Intellectua1

      Won’t happen

  • Xavier_NYC

    I love everything about this phone except how big it is. I feel like companies are going backwards. First we went from making phones smaller and smaller now we’re going back to bigger and bigger.

    • Intellectua1

      So you want a 3 inch screen? You’re forgetting the smaller phones only had a keypad and a small LCD screen to display numbers and texts, and if you were lucky you had the game snake on your phone. Phones these days are like computers, we need decent screen sizes

      • Xavier_NYC

        No you turd. I mean between 4.7-5.2(G2) inch screens..

        • Intellectua1

          Awww this guy called me a turd. Bet you feel really big now huh.. You really got your point across this time. Losers like you can’t hold a conversation or get a point across without throwing insults, shows your maturity level.

          • needa

            just as some users cannot post a reply that does not start/egg on a war.

          • Intellectua1

            How did I start or egg on a war? By asking a guy if he wanted a 3″ screen then going on to explain why I think screen size is getting bigger? You call that egging on/starting a war?

          • Xavier_NYC

            He’s crying for attention. No point in giving it to him.

          • Xavier_NYC

            Ha, obviously you took that comment to heart. I can def articulate my point without needing to insult but it’s obvious you weren’t intelligent enough to understand when I say smaller screen doesn’t necessarily mean 3 inches.. Plus I have a double degree in Communication and Computer science so I’m sure I could hold a conversation with no problem ;)

          • Intellectua1

            That’s nice you have your degree congrats. But when you said we went from making cellphones smaller and smaller to me that sounds like the big 80′s box phones to the smaller not so smart phones because those phones were getting smaller and smaller. With smartphones I never saw them get smaller only bigger. So it was just a misunderstanding of what you were trying to say.

          • Landon Pate Weaver

            Good GOD! You both desperately need something going on in your lives.

          • michael arazan

            So people were to understand that .2 inces was smaller for you? And that 5.5 is too Big while 5.2 is just right?
            When the average person on hear says to big or wants a smaller screen they almost always mean 4.5 and smaller, if you have been reading the site long enough.

          • Aaron

            How can you even be insulted? You aren’t actually a turd, are you? :)

          • Intellectua1

            No I’m not really insulted. I just find it funny when people throw insults that’s all. I like to live a peaceful life so when people get like that it makes me wonder what’s going on in their life that makes them so defensive..

          • Danny Dodge

            Lol you got called a turd on the Internet by someone who never met you. You must be well depressed.

            Jay and silent Bob will kick hiss as for you but you didn’t hear that from me ;)

    • black_sea

      I agree with your assessment. This phone appears to be about the size of a Note 3. I’d like to see more sub-5″ phones with top-of-the-line specs. On the other hand, I appreciate that Oppo is going against trend and adding back the functionality of removable batteries and expandable storage. Perhaps we’ll see a refreshed Find 5 with CyanogenMod.

    • Gideon Waxfarb

      Yeah, if they keep making ‘em this big, clown pants are going to become the norm :P

      • Xavier_NYC

        lol love this comment.

      • flosserelli

        Time to break out the old Hammer pants

    • schlanz

      screen size matters. why don’t you want a 27″ tv?

      I can handle a device like the note 3 with ease.

      phones got smaller and smaller bc you weren’t using the screen for anything. they are getting bigger because the resolution is high enough and battery life is good enough for it to not hinder the experience.

      • Xavier_NYC

        1) You can’t compare something stationary to something portable. I’m sure if everyone in here could have a 100 inch TV’s they would vs a 6 or 7 inch smart phone I highly doubt it. 2) You can handle a note 3 but most people don’t like phones that size. Yes it’s popular but I’m sure a majority of people would prefer something they can use with one hand and the note 3 is def not a one handed device unless you have enormous hands. 3) I understand why phones got bigger but if they keep getting bigger we’ll all be walking around with IPad’s and Nexus 7′s as phones. Good luck fitting that in your pocket.

        • schlanz

          they can be compared. any device with a screen. a larger screen is a better viewing experience in any situation. obviously I say viewing experience because obviously for an overall experience that takes ergonomics into account. understandably not everyone can handle a note but many are fine with it. I typed this all one handed and I have large but not huge hands.

          point is everyone has different preferences and I don’t complain about nice phones released that dont have the huge screen that I prefer. no use complaining. there is a market for those devices and a market for smaller screens. hence all the praise and admiration towards the z1 compact and moto x.

          I have fit a nexus 7 in my pocket.

  • g_what

    The volume and power buttons are backwards…

  • The Narrator

    This too

    “In addition to a sizable 3000 mAh battery (or 2800 mAh for 1080p variant), the Oppo Find 7 features voltage opened loop and multi-step constant current charging (VOOC) technology. Technical terms aside, this basically means that the handset provides best-in-class fast charging capabilities.

    How fast are we talking about exactly? The Oppo Find 7 is capable of going from a 0% to 75% charge in just 30 minutes, with just a 5 minute charge providing a whole 2 hours of talk time.”

    • Guest

      Its the Snapdragon processor that allows it Just like the G2. It will get faster as tech advances.

      • The Narrator

        It’s actually Oppo and the Snapdragon. I don’t see any other phones charging that fast.

  • Guest

    I would rather buy the G3.

  • Curtis

    “just 1080p”…?

    • Miguel

      Please read the article, it clearly say that the 5in is 1080p and the 5.5 has the 2k resolutilon.

      • Curtis

        I did. I was commenting on the reality that we have arrived at a point where we are downplaying a 1080p screen.

        • She_Beast

          Pretty sure the “only 1080p” was meant tongue-in-cheek.

          • Curtis

            Here’s hoping you’re right. In either case, it was a deliberate use of the word “just.”

  • Guest

    I think phones like this don’t come to the US because it won’t survive. Who wants an Oppo. Believe it or not brand names are very important in the US. Secondly it would try to compete with Samsung, LG, and HTC, these are well established brands here. There’s no market for another OEM

    • The Narrator

      If you want quality, Oppo is one of the best outside the US. It’s usable on T Mobile/AT&T. Oppo is definitely welcome.

      • Intellectua1

        To you it’s welcome, but I’m talking the US market as a whole. People on Droid-Life always forget that this is a small community of maybe 200 people if that and there’s a huge market out there that this phone wouldn’t not sell to. And that’s why carriers won’t pick it up

        • needa

          another aggressive comment where there is absolutely no need to be aggressive.

          • Intellectua1

            Ok Mr. Mediator..

  • LiterofCola

    I really would have preferred 4.4 :/

  • MichaelFranz

    sucks it wont see US carriers, would be nice to see a phone like this try the US market at least

  • Milind Shah

    If it isn’t technically 50mp, then it is just a gimmick as they are multiple smaller photos stitched together, which would mean you won’t be able to zoom the same amount you’d be able to if it was actually 50mp

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Software magiX to push out 50MP photos…not sure what the point is there.

    • JeffColorado

      The MP wars are over. I don’t care about MP anymore…I need better lowlight and less noise and optical zoom.

      • Milind Shah

        Yup 8 is more than enough for a phone….people looking to take 50mp shots won’t be using phones to take those pictures…they would probably use actual camera -.-

        • The Narrator

          Tell that to people who bought the 1020. Why carry unneeded weight when your phone does it on the go?

          • JeffColorado

            The 1020 was different because it did everything well…it was not just high MP, it also had awesome lowlight (still arguably the best on the market for phone cameras).

          • LiterofCola

            Exactly

          • Milind Shah

            The 1020 actually has a 41mp sensor. This doesn’t. That’s the difference…

          • The Narrator

            Your point? The picture I saw that came from the Find 7 at 50mp resolution was pretty nice. Even if it doesn’t have a 50mp senser, their software does it pretty good.

          • Colton

            you have a link to the photo sample from the Find 7? Was hoping there would be one in the article. Would like to see it!

          • From Another World

            “actually a 41MP sensor”
            Seriously??
            It has a 5 MP sensor whose pixels are “oversampled” to reach 41mp…
            and if you may not know, 808 pureview’s sensor is larger than 1020′s (and the largest sensor to date)
            so why not favour 808 pureview then??

          • Flyinion

            Uh that would be negative. You have the oversampling reversed. The sensor is 41MP and takes 41MP photos. It uses oversampling to turn that same photo into a 5MP equivalent for sharing via email/social media/etc. directly off the phone. The only way to get the 41MP shots off of it is to plug it into your computer like a camera and download them directly, or to use the AT&T Locker service which will allow it to upload to cloud storage (but it’s the only one you can do it wirelessly with).

        • Intellectua1

          I don’t think the mp war is over and 8mp is definitely not enough.. You need atleast 13mp. This is 2014 not 2010

    • antinorm

      Given how small the CCD/CMOS sensor is on a phone, the picture quality is never going to be as good as a standalone camera anyway, even at the same resolution.

  • JeffColorado

    Yeah, “50MP” needs to be put in quotes.

    • Miguel

      Agree, give me a better sensor with less pixels and I’m in.

  • The Narrator

    It’s so beautiful. Dat battery tech!

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    “:……and comes shipped with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean” ummm…. NO!

    https://31.media.tumblr.com/bf18ae37a2fdca3e703c56f8caf246b3/tumblr_inline_n292poh4Cx1s7p9yt.gif

    • The Narrator

      yeah it should have shipped with Android 7.0!

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Come on narrator, you’re more witty than that.

        • The Narrator

          Well, i don’t know how else to respond to people always complaining about not getting the latest OS. It’s definitely not a deal breaker, not for me atleast.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            You can’t release a phone without Kitkat in Q2 of 2014. All the high end devices are coming with KitKatt. There really isn’t an excuse this late.

          • The Narrator

            What does KitKat do that is so important? Oppo is teamed with CM so i’d expect roms galore

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            Don’t make me break out the changelog and all the underthehood differences….though I guess with the CYAN model it wouldn’t make much of a difference, so you’re right from that angle. Quite frankly that’s the only reason OPPO is interesting to me.

          • Diablo81588

            ART compiler. End of story.

          • r0l

            The difference is by the time it’s released and stateside it’ll be (or almost be) two versions behind. I would imagine the next version of Android to drop at I/O.

          • Kevin

            Roms are disgusting always filled with bugs than the average stock. They add a lot of uneccessary features that are broken. They take longer than Google to get a stable ROM out.

        • Milind Shah

          Man isn’t he the guy who has been here previously with other accounts…

    • Intellectua1

      Exactly, that killed it. Not that I wanted one anyway..

      • Danny Dodge

        I wanted it with ios 3.1.1 … old skool

    • Cleevens Joseph

      Snapdragon 801 QHD 538ppi 5.5 in screen 3GB ram 3000Mah Battery & A Great cam ..and people worrying about Android 4.3..wow..im so confused i thought that was what everybody expect a 2014 flagship to be..id buy this over the “New” HTC one..Galaxy S5 any & everyday if it was on AT&T

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        I don’t care about specs. It’s all the same across the board. Software matters.

        • Cleevens Joseph

          But I’m pretty sure it will get updated to 4.4.2 is 4.3 that much of a difference from kit Kat to pass this phone up ?

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            Its not just Kit Katt I don’t find it attractive and it’s too big and I’m not interested in their software. You can put CYAN on anything.

    • thetrystero

      Rooting and custom ROMing an Oppo is so easy, the ROM it ships with isn’t even something that should be considered in making a purchase decision. Downvoted.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Wasn’t one of these versions supposed to have onscreen buttons? And when will we be able to get our hands on the CYAN model?

    • Orion

      That’s the OnePlus.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Oh lord, tells you how much I paid OPPO any mind until the Cyan stuff.
