Oppo teases the Find 7, which could be home to 2014’s top smartphone tech

Oppo R819

Chinese manufacturer Oppo has impressed us this year, particularly with the innovative N1 camera phone, so it’s natural for us to wonder what it has planned for the future. Through its own account on the social network Weibo, it has teased the forthcoming arrival of the Find 7, a name which links back to a rumored device with some very exciting specs indeed.

Oppo has used the Find brand name several times in the past, and although the number often applies to the screen size, if the rumors are correct this time, it’ll change ever so slightly. Apparently, the Find 7 will have a 5.7-inch display, making it slightly smaller than the 5.9-inch Oppo N1.

So, you may be expecting us to say the Find 7 will have a 1080p resolution, right? Wrong, the leak states it’s going to have a whopping 2560 x 1440 pixels, or 1440p. If this turns out to be correct, the Find 7 could be one of the first to feature such a high resolution screen on a smartphone.

Oppo Find 7 TeaserThe rumor doesn’t run out of steam there either, as the processor inside the Find 7 may be Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 805. Announced several weeks ago, the quad-core 805 has a potential top speed of 2.5GHz, and is specially designed to handle 1440p screen resolutions or even higher.

Other leaked specs for the Find 7 include 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera, and a 5-megapixel front cam. This suggests it won’t be getting the same swiveling camera module seen on the Oppo N1. Finally, presumably thanks to the Snapdragon 805, the Find 7 should be Oppo’s first 4G LTE device. Is this all true? Perhaps, but the Find 7 name makes us wonder if the device will be a 7-inch tablet, while the rumored spec could have been confused with another Chinese phone coming soon, the Vivo XPlay 3S.

All this wonderful new tech does indicate the Find 7 won’t be launching tomorrow anyway. Qualcomm says the Snapdragon 805 won’t find its way into hardware we can buy until mid-2014, so we shouldn’t expect the wraps to be taken off the Find 7 until Mobile World Congress, at the very earliest.

The Nothing Phone 2 just leaked, and it’s not what I expected
Nothing Phone (2) leaked render.

Nothing has been hyping up It’s next phone with executive interviews and social media drop-feeding recently. But merely weeks before the anticipated July launch and eventual brand arrival in the U.S. market, the leaking world has spoiled the design surprise.

Prolific leaker Steve H. (aka @OnLeaks ) teamed up with SmartPrix to drop high-resolution renders of the Nothing Phone 2 based on a “testing stage unit.” To sum up my first impression after seeing these renders, I’d say it’s underwhelming — especially for a brand that takes a lot of pride in its design chops.

Don’t miss your chance to get an Apple Watch for $149
The screen of the Apple Watch SE showing its apps.

You'll almost never see an Apple Watch included in a retailer's smartwatch deals, so you shouldn't miss this chance to get the 40mm version of the first-generation Apple Watch SE for a very affordable $149. That's $130 in savings from the wearable device's original price of $279, but you'll need to proceed with your purchase quickly because we expect the bargain to grab the interest of a lot of shoppers. If you hesitate, stocks may be gone by the time you get back to this offer.

Why you should buy the Apple Watch SE
The second-generation Apple Watch SE is in our list of the best smartwatches as the best budget smartwatch for the iPhone, but the first-generation Apple Watch SE remains a worthwhile purchase, especially for its lowered cost. The wearable device will let you take calls and reply to text messages from your wrist, and it can be used to process payments using Apple Pay. The Apple Watch SE is capable of tracking your daily activity, monitoring health metrics such as heart rate and sleeping habits, and sending out an emergency message if it detects that you took a hard fall.

Nothing Phone 2: news, release date, price rumors, and more
Nothing Phone (2) leaked photos.

The Nothing Phone 1 made its debut in July 2022, and it had a reasonable amount of hype behind it due to the involvement of Carl Pei, a co-founder of OnePlus. It was a quirky phone due to the unique light show on the back that makes it stand out from the competition, but on the software front, it’s very similar to other Android phones out there. It received mixed reviews, though the consensus leaned more toward the positive side.

This year, we’re expecting the Nothing Phone 2, as confirmed by Pei in January during Mobile World Congress 2023. Here’s everything we know so far about the Nothing Phone 2!
