was way back in October, when it was said to have been delayed thanks to the wait for Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 processor. However, Oppo's X9009 -- identified through a new GFXBench listing as the elusive Find 9 -- looks instead to be powered by MediaTek's Helio P10, which is considerably more homely than the top-tier Qualcomm SoC and would place the device in the upper mid-range tier. Early rumors also pointed to a QHD display, but it now looks like the P9 will settle on an FHD, 1080 x 1920 panel over a 5.5-inch canvas.
Though there may be 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of on-board storage, it would seem that the Find 9's main attraction will be the front facing camera. The apparent 16-megapixel front shooter is of higher resolution than most, and could help users create that perfect selfie. Meanwhile, the device will likely host a 12-megapixel snapper to the rear featuring flash and 4K video, among other treats.
Whether there's another version of the Find 9 featuring some of the previously expected features remains to be seen. Having supposedly been on ice for six months in lieu of a top-notch chipset, though, it instead appears as though the Oppo Find 9 perhaps won't be much to write home about.
Still, looking at the render below, at least it won't be a complete Apple iPhone rip-off...
