Oppo officially confirms the Find 7 will have 1080p and QHD versions
Prices and other technical characteristics are not yet available, but rumors point to the QHD variant running on a Snapdragon 801 SoC, and the 1080p version sporting the still very capable Snapdragon 800 chipset.
Today we also learned that the Oppo Find 7 might introduce a mind-blowing 50MP camera. As a whole, Oppo's next flagship is shaping up to be a very exciting smartphone and we're looking forward to more clues about it in the days leading to its March 19 reveal.

1080p is more than enough. Stop that QHD gimmicky propaganda! !!!!

Isn't 640p enough for you?

Except, 1080p advancement from 720p made sense. Since most content is rendered at that resolution or can be easily made convertible. TVs stayed at 1080p for years to give the content time on it to mature and become compatible. I don't know why smartphones need to rush past this standard so soon

Couldn't have said it better myself. If you find watching a movie on a 40+ inch TV that is in 1080p, why would you be pissed off watching a movie with a 4-5 inch display with the same resolution?
It blows my mind when I hear "upcoming phone will ONLY have a 1080p display".

Some of these phones now let you record videos in 4K, so with the 2.5k/1440p displays, you can see the video closer to its native resolution. Also, the UI will be optimized for QHD as well.
Movies will eventually be offered in 4k Blu-ray discs or streamed in 4k in the future. So if the cell phone displays have the capabilities of offering a QHD display, it's reasonable to understand why some people may be disappointed when a phone didn't offer it.

Yup. Being somebody who doesn't do much gaming on my device I wouldn't mind the slightly sharper UI and some sharper text. And the 4000 mAH battery that this thing will supposedly have should power the display just fine.

Good for these guys, especially offering a 1080p option with the QHD. Would love to see if QHD would really be worth the upgrade versus 1080p because honestly if it's not too mind blowing I'd rather save my phone the juice and performance for pushing all those extra pixels for now.

I would guess S801 with 1080p and they'll announce a QHD version and release it when the S805 is available.
I hope that's how they do it at least.

Samsung really should have used their 5.25 OHD screen for the GS5

It probably didn't meet quality standards in advancements of color display or energy efficiency. These Chinese makers are rushing these higher resolution displays without using the latest semiconducting technology for battery life or accurately calibrating them
12. JMartin22 (Posts: 712; Member since: 30 Apr 2013)
It's probably going to have a poorly calibrated display that's not energy efficient, I doubt it's "50 megapixel" camera will match the quality of the premium 8/13/16 MP modules we have now, battery life will probably just be average and finally, it's going to run a watered down UI we see in mainstream phones. These are all just my predictions, of course.

it's really stupid to release FHD and 2k display together for the same model just because the manufacturers don't have enough resources for all to be 2k. the unity of the model is damaged. i hope that sony will adopt 2k in the right time for all flagship units. not some FHD and others 2k. it's LAME.

Well, they do stepped up the game. Not sure if I want it though. Oppo's aftersales services are not that good here. And 50mp (if it's true) is a bit excessive in my opinion. But Oppo do try to do things progressively, and some innovative things like the rotating camera (for smartphone), which is nice.

Phones i don't give two s**ts about, the ones that don't come to america. That about sums it up

1080p is enough especially in a smartphone because you will not notice the difference between FHD and QHD.
