Is the Oppo Find 7 about to introduce a 50MP camera?!

Hold on to your hats, gentlemen, ladies, and Nokia workers, because Oppo published the mother of all sample photos! This 8160x6120, 9.7MB photograph comes straight from the Chinese manufacturer's Weibo account, and it's likely taken with the Oppo Find 7. It must be the Find 7, because there is no smartphone out there whose camera sensor can match the 50 megapixels of resolution we have here. 


50MP! It seems that Oppo will be throwing the glove at everyone with its latest phone, which will feature a ginormous camera sensor in addition to a QHD display, Snapdragon 801 CPU, and other premium specs.


However, none of the alleged photos of the Find 7 that we've seen so far shows a bulge on its back that would indicate such a huge sensor. We've come up with three theories. The first is that all those photos of the phone are as fake as the medical notes you used to skip gym class. 


The second is that the 50MP photo itself is artificially enlarged. The third is that those MEMS camera modules, which Oppo bought by the buckets last year, make the miracle of fitting a 50MP/f2.0 camera into a slim shell a possibility. But is the 33% reduction in footprint allowed by the innovative technology enough for such a feat of engineering?


Our questions will be answered come March 19th. Meanwhile, feel free to take a look at the photo, unless you're on a 56k modem. Although the level of detail at full zoom and color processing leave something to be desired, the zooming depth is quite a sight to behold.

Well, many have proven megapixel is not the sole factor in deciding the image quality, i mean, even high end DSLR or dedicated camera have only 24~36 MP...
Indeed with high MP pairs with large image sensor, like 1020 could produce DSLR standard of image, I believe the MP count is just part of the marketing strategy. When people hear like 41, 50 megapixel, which sounds more than it can deliver relative to a dedicated camera.

Lossless zooming, and the ability to crop, and recrop images over and over without loosing quality.. Sharpness.. This is basic the main attributes of the 1020's camera.. I'm sure some said the same about 41mp..
......................
While more MP aren't everything they will continue to increase to the 100million range because they do provide useful advantages... But, mainly in zooming, which is very nice... To be honest, the lossless zooming on the 1020 is only lossless to a certain point, and it can get way better with time... This just provides the opportunity for more creative picture taking, and that's really the whole point...

Chinese junk? In build quality, Oppo beats almost every manufacturer in business (if not all).

It's not, in my opinion they are the closest thing to Apple on the Android front.

Oppo is a very high quality manufacturer. They are Chinese, but damn are they good. Also, it has a 50 MP sensor, but it will probably use the same pixel binning technology as Phase 1 Pureview that will combine pixels and make a super detailed lower megapixel image, like the Lumia 1020 has a 41 MP sensor but makes awesome 5 MP images with it.

Lossless zoom. Other than that it won't make a huge difference, none of the phones on the market really even need more than an 8mp camera.

Oppo will deliver if this thing is really there's.

I still think, it's about around 20MP camera. Or who knows could be more pixels.
