Say hello to the Oppo Find 7: phone leaks for the first time, retail packaging and all

Say hello to the Oppo Find 7: phone leaks for the first time, retail packaging and all
After narrowly missing on the first-to-1080p crown, Oppo is back with another attempt to storm the display front with the Find 7. The company itself has confirmed that while a 1080p version of the Find 7 will be made available, a model with a Quad HD (1440x2560) display is going to be the real breakthrough. Naturally, and despite Oppo again forfeiting the number one spot to rival Vivo, this got us pretty anxious to finally meet the 5.5-inch Find 7, and today we did. 

Days before its March 19th official announcement event, the folks behind Chinese IT168 have gotten their hands on a retail unit of the Find 7, complete with its packaging. What we're looking at is obviously a pretty large device, even though we can't quite tell just how large. It's definitely a Find series phone and reminds us a lot of the original Find 5, even though there are still some noticeable changes on the rear, like a different camera unit with less ornamentation, and a much wider speaker grill.

We're also a bit disappointed to see Oppo re-use the otherwise great box that the 5.9-inch N1 comes in. Don't get us wrong, we loved the unboxing part with the N1, which is exactly why we were hoping for something just as cool, but different.

Alright, I wasn't the only one. It's not necessarily a bad thing either.

The only bad thing is the price difference , this crap will be with ~100-150$ more then nexus 5 if rumours are true , and don't see where the extra money go , for an micro sd ? or the extra .5" ? Cuz on same price i can buy another 5'5" with better specs and better price , and looks ... (Gionee Elife E7) , ofc all that could change if thet put the feet back on ground and don't request me to pay 100$ more for this phone then an nexus ...

This for sure cannot be a game changer.

Yes, that was just a shot in the dark.

Is this the phone that is rumored to have a 50MP sensor? IMHO, it doesn't appear to be so, seeing how thin the unit is, not to mention the absence of a hump at the back which would be typical for a sensor that huge

With no huge sensor, the 50MP sensor will most likely not on the Find 7, probably will be on the N1 successor.

The sensors, regardless of resolution, are super-thin. It's the optics that make a camera thick. Or the addition of a xenon-flash, like on the Lumia 1020.

Have you seen the size of the 1020/808 sensor? http://www.phonearena.com/news/Nokia-Lumia-1020-smaller-sensor-camera-than-808-PureView-but-could-capture-the-best-images-of-any-smartphone_id45238#2- Yes xenon flashes are also thick but so are Nokia's giant sensors

What you're talking about is the entire camera module. The SENSOR is super-thin, the sensor being the light-sensitive layer at the bottom which determines the megapixel count. To see just how thick the optics are, check this out:http://i.imgur.com/fix0eo8.jpg The optics in themselves are driven by a rather large motor for focusing-purposes, which can be seen in this detailed overview:http://i.imgur.com/rxP1spU.jpg And the sensor is the thin little thing at the bottom of it all:http://i.imgur.com/jRAHIDy.jpg As for how massive the Xenon flash is, check this out, it's the crescent-shaped thing at the middle left:http://i.imgur.com/Gfk7lVo.jpg So in conclusion, the sensors are really thin. What determines the thickness is the optics used. Quality optics in conventional cameras can of course not be as thin as one might wish, which is why computational photography (Pelican Imaging and the likes) comes to the rescue with having only 2 lenses in front of the sensor, letting the processor handle the rest.

Hmm...the design looks a bit plain imo, hope it looks more better when see it in real life.

I was determine to keep my LG G2 for a long time over Note 3 and Lumia devices, but this beast is really tempting me to switch phone

Looks okay. Does anyone know whether the two versions look identical? I'm assuming this is the FHD version?

Another uninspired slab...I'm all for an understated design, but lets put a concerted effort in.
