Two flavors of Oppo’s new high-end phone launching in China this spring

Chinese manufacturer Oppo has taken the wraps off its latest flagship smartphone, the Find 7. With an enormous 5.5-inch display and up to QHD (2560×1440) resolution, the Find 7 rivals the latest flagships from Samsung and Sony, boasting 538 pixels per inch. The top-end Find 7 model also features a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor (MSM8974AC) and 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 3000mAh battery. There’s also a less pricey 1080p version with a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a 2800mAh cell.

But the major talking point is the Find 7’s camera. It’s got a 13-megapixel Sony IMX214 sensor, but software trickery allows it to shoot up to 50-megapixel images though a “Super Zoom” feature. And early sample shots from Engadget seem to show plenty of fine detail, even when viewed at full size. The Oppo Find 7 offers 4K video recording to boot, along with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

Other hardware tricks include rapid charging — Oppo claims it’ll go from 0 to 75 percent in just 30 minutes — and MaxxAudio plus DiracHD audio enhancements. And software-wise, you’re looking at Oppo’s ColorOS, previously seen on the N1. Based on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

The 1080p Oppo Find 7 (dubbed the Find 7a) will be available in China from mid-April, with the 1440p model following in May or June.
