Say hello to the Oppo Find 7: phone leaks for the first time, retail packaging and all
After narrowly missing on the first-to-1080p crown, Oppo is back with another attempt to storm the display front with the Find 7. The company itself has confirmed that while a 1080p version of the Find 7 will be made available, a model with a Quad HD (1440x2560) display is going to be the real breakthrough. Naturally, and despite Oppo again forfeiting the number one spot to rival Vivo, this got us pretty anxious to finally meet the 5.5-inch Find 7, and today we did.
Days before its March 19th official announcement event, the folks behind Chinese IT168 have gotten their hands on a retail unit of the Find 7, complete with its packaging. What we're looking at is obviously a pretty large device, even though we can't quite tell just how large. It's definitely a Find series phone and reminds us a lot of the original Find 5, even though there are still some noticeable changes on the rear, like a different camera unit with less ornamentation, and a much wider speaker grill.
We're also a bit disappointed to see Oppo re-use the otherwise great box that the 5.9-inch N1 comes in. Don't get us wrong, we loved the unboxing part with the N1, which is exactly why we were hoping for something just as cool, but different.
