Oppo Find 7 will be more expensive than thought
Reports from China reveal that the 1080 x 1920 version of the Oppo Find 7 has already been advertised by Oppo's stores in China, even though the phone won't be introduced until March 19th. While the handset is unannounced for now, ads already show that the FHD model will be priced at 3498 Yuan ($570 USD). The Oppo Find 7 has a 5.5 inch display.

So far, Oppo hasn't advertised the price of the more premium version of the phone, which will feature a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution screen, and possibly a 50MP camera. The manufacturer has confirmed the existence of this model and it will be unveiled March 19th along with the FHD variant.

In China, a high-end smartphone with a 1080 x 1920 resolution screen is priced at $100 to as much as $200 lower. Oppo could be shooting itself in the foot by asking for nearly $600 for this model of the Find 7. We do have to admit that there is some mystique involved, and the Find 7 has become a curiosity for smartphone fans. But many of them will never get a chance at seeing the phone in the flesh due to the lack of any partnership between the manufacturer and U.S. carriers. And Chinese smartphone buyers might not see the point of paying so much money for the Oppo Find 7 when other similar models are priced much cheaper.
