Oppo Find 9 to be unveiled in Beijing on September 19th?
A teaser discovered by Weibo poster @KJuma, reveals that the Oppo Find 9 will be unveiled on September 19th, during an event taking place in Beijing. Oppo's last phone in the series, the Oppo Find 7, was released more than a year ago and was one of the first handsets to launch with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution display. Keep in mind that this unveiling has not been officially announced by Oppo. Back in June, the handset was said to be undergoing carrier testing which would fit the time frame for a September unveiling.

Assuming that the device is seeing the light of day on September 19th, just what can we expect from the Oppo Find 9? Considering that the Find 7 featured a 5.5-inch display, we could see the Find 9 carrying a 5.5-inch to 6-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. The Snapdragon 810 chipset could end up under the hood, featuring an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. 4GB of RAM seems like a good bet, as does a fingerprint scanner and a 21MP rear snapper. The phone is expected to support Cat.9 4G LTE speed, which offers a theoretical peak of 452Mbps.

Last year, the manufacturer released a variant of the Find 7, the Oppo Find 7a, which had a lower (1080 x 1920) resolution screen. The amount of RAM was cut by a third to 2GB, and a lower capacity battery was placed inside. The price difference between the Oppo Find 7a and the Oppo Find 7 was $100. If the teaser is legit, we will see on the 19th whether Oppo plans on offering a lower priced version of the Find 9 with some minor changes to the specs.

We'd tell you to circle your calendar, but the whole month of September should already be circled by new product announcement dates. If you're a smartphone junkie, this is one of the best times of the year.


Thanks for the tip!

So, that's why the Find 7 price has dropped a lot recently.

Really? I've been using the Find 7a since last year and it is fantastic and not planning to change until it is broken physically,

The Find 7a is a really fantastic smartphone. I have no doubt that this will be the same.

Oppo/OnePlus is/are the same company. What I suspect is, Oppo wants to sell a FLAWLESS phone, so, what better way of testing, than to create a phony company called OnePlus, use a bunch of viral marketing to drive the hype, make a base design, leave a couple of features off, price it to sell, and let it out into the global market. Wait for the feedback from unhappy users you could care less about, tweak the design, fix the bugs, and then release it as the Oppo device. They did the same thing with the OnePlus One/Find7, and now they are doing the same thing with the OnePlus2/Find9. The news is TIGHTLY controlled in China, save for parts of Hong Kong, so I bet most Chinese have NO IDEA of the OnePlus phones. What they see, is a better out of the gate phone. I wouldn't give you a plug nickel for the OP2, since it is a downgrade from the OnePlus One.
