When it comes to smartphones, thin is in. Apple’s iPhone 6 wowed consumers when it was unveiled last month and it measured just 6.9mm thick. The phone feels incredible in the hand thanks to its slender profile, but a new smartphone just announced on Wednesday makes Apple’s latest iPhone look positively plump. More →
Oppo finally unveiled the Find 7 this week, the first ever smartphone that can take a 50-megapixel photos. It’s quite the beast of a phone as well with its 5.5-inch QHD display, 2.5 Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 13-megapixel Sony CMOS sensor on its camera. We know the specs and the price of the Oppo phone, we’ve heard about the high resolution photos and the 4K video recording, but we hadn’t actually seen the Find 7 in action until GizChina published the first ever unboxing video on Thursday, showing off the design of the device along with the Android-based ColorOS. The full video can be found below. More →

The Oppo Find 7 piqued our interested early last week when a leak claimed that the Android phone would come equipped with an epic 50-megapixel camera, and now we can take an even closer look at the device. Another purported leak on Weibo shows off the Find 7 from a variety of angles, revealing that Oppo has decided to stick close to the design of last year’s Find 5 for the new phone. There are some minor exterior differences, most notably a rounder body, but the real changes can be found within. More →
An Android smartphone will apparently beat any competing devices in camera performance, at least when it comes to counting megapixels. An image leak posted on Weibo seems to indicate that the unreleased Oppo Find 7 smartphone will have a 50-megapixel camera, the kind of camera that’s not usually seen on mobile devices. More →
Most Android smartphones today have a screen sized somewhere between 4.3-inches and 4.7-inches with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. China’s Oppo Mobile CEO Chen Mingyong has just declared 720p obsolete, however. Chen claims his company’s upcoming Oppo “Find 5″ smartphone will sport a 5-inch display running at 1080p resolution, effectively making it a phablet with 441 pixels per inch (ppi). That’s sharper than the iPhone 5‘s 326 PPI and the Nokia (NOK) Lumia 920’s 331 PPI. Even with such a large 1080p display, Oppo remains confident it can deliver the quad-core Find 5 in a design that is only 6.65mm thick. Only time will tell if the Oppo Find 5 lives up to its impressive spec sheet.
