We’ve been jawing about the Oppo Find 5’s successor for over seven months now, and while the long-awaited launch remains elusive, the phone we’re officially calling the Oppo Find 7 is slowly starting to take shape.
The Chinese manufacturer confirmed the Oppo Find 7’s existence a couple of weeks ago, and a follow-up tweet finally gives that much-rumoured 2K display the Oppo stamp of approval.
The hashtag Oppo has created around the Find 7's pre-launch campaign is #AlwaysImprove. Considering the Oppo Find 5 was the world’s first 1080p smartphone, how does one improve upon that?
Answer: 2K. That’s a resolution of 2560 x 1440, equating to 3.7 million pixels in the palm of your hand.
The aforementioned Oppo tweet reads: “#Find5 was the world’s first smartphone with a 5” 1080p display. #Find7 is taking it one step further. #AlwaysImprove”.
Ok, so there’s no specific mention of 2K in the tweet, but the accompanying image (check it out above) leaves little doubt.
That’s all we know for sure at present, but other rumoured Oppo Find 7 specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front shooter, 3GB of RAM, and LTE connectivity.
Resolutions of 2K look like being the new flagship standard in 2014 (just as we were getting used to 1080p), but the question is: Which will be the first 2K smartphone to market, the Oppo Find 7 or Samsung Galaxy S5?
