OPPO teases OPPO Find 7 handset with 2K display

OPPO teases OPPO Find 7 handset with 2K display
A tweet from OPPO sent out on Monday, reminds us that the OPPO Find 5 was one of the first smartphones with a 5 inch screen to sport a 1080 x 1920 display (along with the HTC DROID DNA). Now, OPPO is teasing the follow up to the Find 5, the OPPO Find 7. The rumored specs are high-end of course, with an expected Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 CPU under the hood, 3GB of RAM, a 4000mAh battery and a 13MP snapper on back. The camera in front is expected to offer a 5MP sensor. The OPPO Find 7 will also support 4G LTE, a first for the manufacturer.

We skipped over the screen on purpose because the rumor there is that the OPPO Find 7 will be equipped with a 5.7 inch glass and sport resolution of 2560 x 1440. Well, we can tell you that this is more than just a rumor. On its tweet, the manufacturer posted an image of the Find 5 showing the 1080p display, and then shows a number 7 for the Find 7. Next to that image, it says 2K display. Yes, it certainly appears that the OPPO Find 7 will feature a 2K screen, especially since this comes straight from the manufacturer.

We don't have a clue yet as to when the OPPO Find 7 will see the light of day, but the display on the phone could be the one that the rest of the industry will be measured against next year.

Few years later we will see many phones with 2K displays.

Indeed. This is how it always starts: One company dares to do it, even if it seems impractical to the majority, then it becomes a standard - too soon! And yet again, the battery might get overlooked, with beastly specs in every other front to distract people from its (probably) poor mAh...

2K display, Snapdragon 805, 3GB RAM... Let's hope the 4000mAh battery can stand for at least two days of usage. Bring it on, Oppo!

the find 7 is definitely not gonna have a 5.7 inch display. PA should do more research before posting things on their site. I mean, I do like that they deliver the news really fast but sometimes things just don't make any sense. GSMArena posted a few days ago that it's not gonna have a 5.7 inch display.

you keep to 1080p ,meanwhile the majorities will be rocking 2k and appreciating it. technology will not stay stagnant because some rationalising buffs don't want change

It's funny that Oppo decides to call it 2k. Now any company that releases a 1920(2k)x1080 phone next year, can label their display as 2K without even having to increase the resolution lol. I hope Oppo goes about this another way.

2k is 1440p (2560x1440) genius, not 1080p. :)

No. 2k only refers to the horizontal resolution, not the vertical resolution of 1440p. Why is 1080p also 2K? Simple, the resolution is 1920x1080. That's 1,920 horizontal lines which are rounded out to 2 thousand lines, which = 2K..... Like 4K. The resolution of 4K TV's is 3840 x 2160. That's 3,840 horizontal lines rounded out to 4,000 which equals 4K. So that 1080p phone you use and the 1080p HDTV you have, they are 2K. The 2560x1440 resolution is higher than 2k. So any genius phone company that will release a phone next year with a 1920x1080 display, can rightfully so label it as 2K :)
