Rumor: Oppo Find 9 to be powered by Snapdragon 835 chipset
The handset is expected to carry a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. The recently announced Snapdragon 835 chipset powers the unit. Previous leaks speculated that the handset would be driven by the Snapdragon 821 SoC. Instead, it appears that Oppo will go with the latest and greatest from Qualcomm. The Snapdragon 835 is built using the 10nm process and is 30% smaller, 27% more powerful, and uses 40% less energy than the Snapdragon 820 chipset. It also features Quick Charge 4.0, which charges a battery 20% faster than the already zippy Quick Charge 3.0.
The latest trend out of China is to include a front-facing selfie camera that matches, or nearly matches the specs of the rear-facing shooter. The Oppo R9s and Oppo R9s Plus both feature a 16MP rear-facing and 16MP front-facing camera. We could see something like that, or perhaps a dual-camera setup on the front of the Find 9. After all, Oppo has been providing selfie fans with the latest technology dating back to the rotating camera on the Oppo N1.
