Oppo Find 7 2K screen confirmed, but questions remain about its size

For a few weeks now we’ve been talking about Oppo and its upcoming Find 7 smartphone. Like we’ve been getting signs of lately with devices from other Southeast Asian OEMs, these rumors quickly wrapped themselves up in the idea of a 2K display – a hefty 2560 x 1440 resolution – along with other similarly high-end specs. Today we finally see Oppo itself confirm that 2K resolution, but even as we get that answer, some new questions are popping up about just what size that panel might be.

That’s Oppo’s teaser image up top, posted to Twitter last night. While it’s crystal clear about that 2K business, no mention is made of screen size.

Previously, we’d heard that the phone might get a 5.7-inch display, and since the Find 5 had a five-inch screen, there’s also been the remote possibility that the Find 7 might be more like a seven-incher (even though no one’s been calling it a “tablet”).

Instead, a former Oppo exec took to Google+ to insist that whatever size the Find 7’s screen ends up being, it most certainly will not be either 5.7 or 7 inches. So, where does that leave us? Much lower than 5.7 sounds like we’d be pushing our luck for what’s possible with 2K fabrication, so maybe more like 6 inches? Time will tell, and hopefully we’ll get our hands on some pics of actual Find 7 hardware so we can start seeing for ourselves.
