The Oppo Find 5 was launched this time last year as the world’s first 1080p smartphone, and while we recently met the Oppo N1 with its rotating camera, we’re still waiting for a proper Find 5 flagship successor.
The rumour mill has long been touting the notion of an Oppo Find 7, and the Chinese manufacturer has finally confirmed its existence on the Facebooks.
This marks the first confirmation we’ve had from the proverbial horse’s mouth, though it’s apparently too early to talk official Oppo Find 7 specs just yet.
In the meantime, Oppo has fired up the picture you see left/above, along with these words: “The Find 5 is celebrating its first birthday today and we would like to thank all our Ofans for supporting us on this fantastic journey! We have received extensive feedback over the past year and have listened closely. The #Find5was just the beginning... #Find7 #AlwaysImprove”.
Rumoured Oppo Find 7 specs include a 5.7in display (which renders the name utterly baffling) with an eye-melting 2560 x 1440 resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front shooter and LTE compatibility.
We expect the Oppo Find 7 launch will go down early next year. Er, at some point.
Furthermore, GizmoChina observes that a little something called the Oppo R827T has been certified. It’s more commonly been rumoured as the Oppo Find 5 mini. Interesting.
Oppo Find 5 mini specs include a 4.7in display (960 x 540), quad-core MT6589 processor, 8MP/2MP camera combo, and 1GB of RAM. Nothing worth getting too excited about then, but I guess it might be worth a look if the price is right.
Oddly, this comes after Oppo's PR people specifically got in touch to deny the Oppo Find 5 mini's existence in June.
