Oppo said to prep superphone with Find 7

Oppo may have its eye on becoming the first smartphone manufacturer to take advantage of the latest and greatest chip technology from Qualcomm, packing a Snapdragon 805 into the forthcoming Find 7. Additionally, GizChina reports, the new device could pack a 2K display, delivering one of the highest-resolution screens on any handheld device. The handset will also apparently have 4G connectivity, which will greatly help it compete in the Chinese market.

No images of the device have yet emerged, but Oppo on Thursday released a message via its official Weibo account saying "4G LTE, I'm ready!" Other information on the Oppo 7's specs is largely speculation from sources, but those sources have in the past supplied reliable information on other Oppo devices.

The device's 2K screen is said to output at 2560 x 1440, with a 5.7-inch diagonal measurement. In addition to a Snapdragon 805 processor, the Find 7 may pack 3GB of RAM. Oppo would also reportedly be beefing up its camera technology, packing a 5-megapixel sensor into the front-facing camera, as well as a 13-megapixel sensor for the rear camera.

The Snapdragon 805 integrates four Krait 450 cores, and the chipset is said to have maximum frequencies between 2.3GHz and 2.5GHz. AnandTech notes that the processor may be more effective at moving data around internally, and that it has hardware acceleration to decode H.265 content.

The Find 7's predecessor, the Find 5, packed a 1080p screen and 2GB of RAM. Oppo sold the device for $499 off-contract, and it was compatible with T-Mobile, AT&T, and Simple Mobile 3G networks.

More recently, Oppo released the Oppo N1, a handheld with a novel form factor. That device packed a 13-megapixel camera operating on a hinge. The user could swivel the camera one way or another in order to make it front-facing or rear-facing.
