Oppo Find 9 delayed until next year due to wait for the Snapdragon 820 chipset
You can add the Oppo Find 9 to the list of high-end smartphones that have been held back by the wait for the Snapdragon 820. That list includes the LeTV Max 2, and the Xiaomi Mi 5 among others. Other manufacturers like Samsung, LG and HTC are said to be waiting for the release of the chipset, which might not be inside new handsets until late next quarter. The good news is that Qualcomm still insists that the Snapdragon 820 will not overheat like its predecessor does.

Not much is known about the Oppo Find 9, except that it follows the Oppo Find 7, and will probably be released next year with the Snapdragon 820 inside. That means that the phone will sport a quad-core CPU, and the Adreno 530 GPU. Other rumored specs include a 1440 x 2560 resolution on a phablet sized screen that will be bezel-less. There should be a fingerprint scanner on board, possibly Qualcomm's Ultrasonic Fingerprint Recognition technology. The Find 9 should also include fast charging capabilities, and a rear-facing camera worthy of being found on a high-end phone.

Right now, there isn't anything that Oppo can do except try to keep interest in the device high as it awaits delivery of the Snapdragon 820 SoC. And there are a number of fans of the Oppo Find 7, who naturally would be interested in the sequel to that model. Everyone is going to need to be patient, especially since Qualcomm is being extra cautious in the face of the Snapdragon 810 chip's issues with temperature control.

Thanks for the tip!
