Oppo launches Find 7 with QHD display and 50MP image option

Several manufacturers were rumored to launch a smartphone with a QHD-display (2560×1440 pixels) at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona but none of the models introduced at the show featured one of the high-resolution screens. Now the wait is over. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oppo has introduced their latest flagship model, the Find 7. This makes the Find 7 the first smartphone to feature a QHD screen. The pixel density of the 5.5-inch display is a staggering 538ppi which should make for ultra-sharp rendering of images and text.

Not only is the Find 7’s screen top-notch, the new device comes with top-end specifications all around. The Android OS is powered by a Snapdragon 801 SoC and 3GB RAM. Rapid Charge technology will let you charge the Find 7’s 3000mAh battery to 75% in only 30 minutes and a MicroSD slot allows for easy storage expansion.

With a 13MP 1/3.06-inch Sony Exmor CMOS sensor and F2.0 aperture, the camera specifications look decent, but not anything out of the ordinary. The Find 7 also comes with a “Super Zoom” software feature that allows for the capture of 50MP images. To achieve this the camera takes a burst of 10 images, then selects the four best shots and combines them into a single 50MP frame. Engadget shows a sample that does not look too impressive at 100% view and has the appearance of an upsampled file.

That said, given the feature’s “Super Zoom” moniker we would expect the large images to be used for a more efficient digital zoom and it’ll be interesting to see how it compares to Nokia’s PureView and more conventional systems once more samples are available.

In addition the Oppo Find 7 is also the first Android device to offer Raw capture. In video mode you can capture 4K footage and 120 fps slow motion video at 720p resolution. For self-portraits and video-calls there is a 5MP F2.0 front camera.

The Find 7 is also available as a version with 1080p display that comes with a slightly downgraded CPU, 2GB RAM and less onboard-storage, but the camera specification is identical to the QHD-model. The latter will retail at 3,498 CNY (approximately $565), while the version with 1080p-screen will set you back 2998 CNY (approximately $480). There is no word yet on availability outside of China.
