Look out, Nokia and Sony! The Oppo Find 7 may sport a 50-megapixel camera in addition to its other crazy, high-end specifications. A recently leaked photo, allegedly taken with the upcoming Find 7, features a massive resolution of 8160 x 6120 pixels.
By all accounts, the Oppo Find 7 will be one incredible smartphone. The high-end version of the Find 7 will reportedly feature a 5.5-inch 2K display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, while the mid-range version will have a 1080p resolution, 5-inch display. It will also supposedly feature the brand-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, which will probably turn out to be one of the fastest processors on the market in 2014.
Now, Oppo has added yet another great specification to the Oppo Find 7's already glowing spec sheet: a 50-megapixel camera. Yes, you read that right 50-megapixels.
The camera's resolution hasn't been confirmed, but the super high-resolution photo could only have been taken with a camera capable of shooting 50-megapixel still shots. The image was posted on Weibo and is allegedly from Oppo itself. Still, this leak should be treated with a lot of skepticism. Oppo has been known to fake leaks in the past to generate buzz for its upcoming devices.
Still, Oppo is known for its high-resolution cameras and good quality specifications, so the 50-megapixel shooter is still a possibility, no matter how remote. If Oppo decided to include such an incredibly powerful camera on its Find 7 flagship smartphone, it would certainly put the device in an entirely new category.
At the moment, the smartphones with the highest resolutions come from Sony and Nokia, both of which are always competing in terms of camera hardware and software on their smartphones. The Sony Xperia Z2 and Nokia Lumia 1020, as well as the new Lumia Icon feature very high-resolution cameras. It looks like Oppo is planning on joining that race soon.
One of the main advantages Oppo's Find 7 will have over its other super camera phone competitors is that it is running Android.
The Oppo Find 7 will launch on March 19th in Beijing, China, so we'll know everything by then. In the meantime, expect to see a lot of wild rumors, as the anticipation for Oppo's new smartphone continues to build.
