Oppo first confirmed earlier this year that the Find 7—a successor to the Oppo Find 5—was in the works, though it quickly denied rumors the device could launch in fall 2013. For a while we didn’t hear anything about the upcoming handset. Then, late last night, Oppo sparked a new set of rumors with a quick post on Sina Weibo possibly teasing the upcoming smartphone.
According to GizChina, the message translates to “4G LTE, I’m ready!” While it could be taken as a celebration of China’s recent 4G network launch, the Chinese site argues that it’s actually a nod towards the upcoming 4G LTE-enabled Oppo Find 7. GizChina’s unnamed sources go on to speculate that the new devicewill come equipped with a 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 2K display, a Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front camera. We’re not sure where these specs are coming from, but we definitely won’t be complaining if they turn out to be accurate.
Unlike the rest of its Chinese competition, Oppo is one of the country’s only OEM’s to market its devices on an international scale instead of simply targeting China’s growing national market. The company recently partnered with popular Android ROM maker Cyanogen Inc. to make the Oppo N1 the first smartphone to ship with the popular third-party software pre-installed. We’re looking forward to seeing what Oppo can do next with the Find 7, and whether it will also feature Cyanogen integration.
