The Chinese electronics manufacturer Oppo is gearing up to release the next iteration of its flagship smartphone. The Oppo Find 9 will replace the well-received Oppo Find 7.
Based on a fresh report from China showcasing a screenshot from carrier Guangzhou Mobile, Oppo will be skipping the number “8” and will settle for “9.” Oppo is also promoting the new 4G LTE Cat.9 network, which is in the testing and evaluation phase. This network is reported to have a maximum speed of about 330 Mbps. In real world scenario testing, the device has clocked a maximum download speed of 292 Mbps, notes Phone Arena. Meanwhile, Guangzhou Mobile has also listed the Oppo Find 9 as one of the eligible handsets to support 4G LTE Cat.9 speeds.
The Oppo Find 9 will be backed by 4 GB of RAM configuration. Even though the leaked specifications are very limited, the front panel image of the handset was leaked in January. In the meantime, interested readers can check out the image from Gizmo China.
The handset will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chipset. As it is currently under carrier testing, the Oppo Find 9 release date could very well be near, says Phone Arena. GSM Arena says the handset will feature a 5.5-inch display and will run on Android Lollipop OS. Nonetheless, readers should note that Oppo has not confirmed the Find 9 specifications or release date thus far.
The Oppo Find 7 was one of the first smartphones to offer the QHD display panel. With this display panel on board, the Find 7 touched an impressive pixel density of 538 ppi. If buyers would like to purchase the Oppo Find 7, Oppo Mart offers the device at a discounted price of $359.
