Oppo's Find 7 now confirmed to boast a 5.5-inch 1440x2560 (538ppi) resolution display

Oppo has been teasing its upcoming refresh on the Find 5 – known as the Find 7 – for a while now, and while detailed information is, naturally, still pretty scarce, the latest teaser clearly shows that the new flagship will tout a 5.5-inch 1440x2560 pixel resolution display. The combo works out to 538 pixels per inch, which is mighty impressive, though we would like to see how much of a difference our imperfect eyes are going to be able to make out, compared with a 1080p panel.

Anyhow, if you thought the display on the Find 7 is impressive, wait until you hear the rest. If the insomniacs at the ever-watchful rumor mill are to be trusted, the new Oppo flagship will also come packing Qualcomm's minty fresh 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805, with updated Krait 450 cores and a mighty Adreno 420 GPU. Known to be one always on the wave of tech, Oppo is said to have also included 3GB of RAM, a 13MP rear shooter and a massive 4000mAh cell.

Obviously, do keep in mind that at this point, we can only vouch for the authenticity of the crisp display and nothing else, so take the above with a grain of salt.

Yeah, because we can totally see the difference between a 720p display with ~320ppi to a 2k with 550ppi. Gimmick.

Please correct. It uses adreno 420 not 450. 450 are the Krait core.

Not coming to the US market so why should we care about them?

It's going to be made with a watered down software offerings, probably a mediocre camera over the big competitors, and that display, for all of it's pixels, will probably not utilize the best semiconducting panel materials for efficiency or have the best display calibration for color reproduction like Apple, Samsung or even LG would have. I always stick to the best, even if it costs more. These cheaper Chinese alternatives just look good on paper.

Watered down software offerings? Oppo has now teamed up with Cyanogenmod. Don't think it will be watered down. Oppo's Find 5 uses the Sony Exmor RS 13 MP sensor, I wouldn't say that's medioce at all. Also the Find 5 uses a display from JDI, similar to the one used on the Droid DNA. Oppo is known for their outstanding BLU-Ray players, probably some of the best in their class.

This is Oppo we're talking about. The Find 5 was one of the first to have 1080p, and it was a very good display. The Find 5 also used the same Exmor RS sensor that's in the Galaxy S4 and Xperia Z. If you think the software will be lacking, Oppo has already made a deal with CyanogenMod, so it will probably be an option to have it pre-installed on the phone rather than Oppo's usual custom software, which was already very good. This isn't just a Chinese alternative, Oppo is a quality manufacturer.

I'd say 750$ at least, maybe 850$, 900 $.

I don't think so and hope not. I'm assuming it'll be around the $600 price range. If I remember correctly, they released the oppo find 5 at $569 for the 32gb version.

The only thing that it lacks is lte!

Glad to see that Oppo didn't use the 2K term in this ad because it was incorrect as current 1080p phones are 2K. Looks like it will be a great phone.

Wow, just wow. I'm looking forward to this beast.

I think this is the size of the note II so no. Too big. I might buy the Lumia 929 (if wp 8.1 brings really cool updates), or the next sony or Htc flagship.

Agreed. 5.3 inches and above should be phablet territory IMO. Of course majority of the people love the move to bigger displays so this device is going to be great for them, but I was hoping that Oppo would stick to 5 inches. At least HTC is rumoured to stick with 5 inches and 1080p..hopefully they can get more battery out of that.

even though it is a 5.5 screen it is rumored to be the same size as their inch phone fine 5 so it wouldn't be a phablet. With phones having smaller bezels that definition of what makes a phablet would have to change.

450 should be sufficient enough but devs have to start optimizing their apps for 2k

No need bro. They can just continue to write apps optimised for 1080p, as the difference will be found only by high quality lens or low quality microscope.

Pretty damn close to perfect phone to me. I'd still take it with 1080p=even more insane performance and longer battery life.

I still feel Adreno 450 wont be enough for 2K

The Adreno 330 pushes a 2560x1600 display very well. The Adreno 420 (which is really in the 805, PA made a mistake) should handle 2560x1440 easily, considering it's a slightly more powerful GPU and a slightly lower resolution.

1440x2560 resolution 5.5" display, Snapdragon 805 SoC, 4000 mah battery. Shut up and take my money!! Unfortunately no money :(

Hahaha.. No money, no phone. That's killer... Most of these phones are not available worldwide.
