    The Oppo Find 7 has been both rumored, leaked, and teased by the manufacturer itself, and the latest information we received via the official Twitter account was a confirmation of its 2K screen. At that point, about the only unknown variable of the Find 7's screen was the actual size of the display, something Oppo addresses in its latest teaser. 5.5-inches, that's how big the display will be, and, at a resolution of 2560x1440, that will result in a PPI rating of 538. Furthermore, Oppo claims that the Find 7 with its 5.5-inch screen will feel like a five-inch device, meaning the phone will ...

    Oppo's N1 is an interesting phone for a lot of reasons: a rear touch panel, that cool rotating camera... but one that's really grabbing a big chunk of the attention is the phone's special status as officially supporting CyanogenMod as an alternate platform. Earlier this month, we saw the regular N1 go up for sale, which fully supports users re-flashing their handsets with a CM ROM. In addition to that model, we've also known about a special CyanogenMod Edition of the phone, which would arrive from the factory with CM already installed and ready to go; this week, that CM N1 becomes ...

    The Oppo N1, and the upcoming Oppo Find 7, are not the only products too look out for from the Chinese manufacturer. We've recently heard about a certain Oppo R1, and the phone-maker has made the device official; the unlocked version goes for 2,498 Chinese Yuan, which pretty much translates to about $411. For that money you'll get mid-range-worthy specs, including a five-inch 720p display, a MediaTek quad-core SoC operating at 1.3 GHz, 2GB of RAM (only one, according to some reports), 16GB of internal storage, as well as an eight-megapixel shooter on the back that is promised to deliver ...

    We're less than two short weeks away from the end of 2013 and it's hard to deny that this year has been a pretty great one for smartphones. Sure, some players struggled more than others, but the industry's in a stronger, more mature, and just more interesting place than it was a year ago. For all the progress that's come our way, though, I wonder if we're not missing out on even bigger and better things. Because as much as the landscape has grown, we're still dealing with a small group of players, and an even more select group of the really big boys, the devices from which simply dominate ...

    Our apology for some technical difficulties in publishing this. The video has been live on YouTube since yesterday. Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the new rumors on the Oppo Find 7 with its 2K display. Then we shift our focus towards Nokia as things don't seem positive when it comes to their 8.3-inch tablet plans, even though Microsoft's 8-inch Surface is rumored to bring some innovative things. Samsung is next, this time because the company has shifted their marketing strategy, and that even includes plans for retail stores. We then cover the rumors of Google's EnergySense ...

    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 ...

    Last we heard about the Oppo Find 7 was when rumors of it allegedly upcoming specs got leaked: you have every reason to be excited about this upcoming phone, if the internals will match the leaked info. Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC, 5.7-inch screen with 2560 x 1440 resolution, 3GB of RAM, 13-megapixel main camera, five-megapixel front-facer, and LTE support. Now Oppo took it to its Weibo page to tease the Find 7, as not only an acknowledgement of its existence, but as a confirmation of its imminent release. Well, we used the word "imminent" in a broad sense, because the teaser, as seen ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the new Asus PadFone Mini launch, and why you shouldn't really care about it. We then talk bout CyanogenMod 11.0 M1, and what this means for the current Nexus line-up. Oppo is next as their future Find 7 plans to be the first smartphone to run the Snapdragon 805 processor, aside from a great display. Then we talk about Samsung's plans to bring us a 1080p Windows Phone early next year, even if Samsung Windows Phones have never been hot. We end today's show talking about Apple's iBeacon service for Apple Stores. All this and more after the ...

    A few weeks back we heard Qualcomm announce its most advanced mobile SoC to date, the Snapdragon 805. With a new GPU, it sounded pretty great, but a raw chip doesn't do any of us much good until someone builds a phone around it. So, who's game? While this is very much still in the “rumor” department, we get word today that Oppo could be one of the first OEMs to eye the 805, with plans to place the chip in its upcoming Find 7 Android. Suggested hardware specs for the Find 7 (Find 5 pictured up top) are pretty darn impressive-sounding: besides the Snapdragon 805, the phone might get a ...

    On September 23 Oppo announced the N1, and, aside from the sexy swiveling camera, the phone-maker is offering future owners a choice for the OS: either Oppo’s own ColorOS, which is basically Android 4.2, or CyanogenMod. According to the latest information from Oppo's Google+ page, the phone will be available for purchase starting from December 10, 2013. It will set you back either $599, or €449, depending on where you purchase it from. However, there's no word on whether the CyanogenMod-powered N1 will be available on the same day; there's also no word on whether the price refers to ...

    We're either right in the middle of a really great, chock-full-of-potential time to be a smartphone manufacturer, or smack-dab in one of the most difficult periods to date, where market domination by a couple big players creates significant barriers to competition. Samsung and Apple reign supreme over the landscape, together accounting for about 43% of global smartphone sales. After that it starts dropping off fast, and even the three next biggest OEMs combined don't have sales that equal Apple's. On one hand, the smartphone market is expanding into new regions, especially in developing ...

    CyanogenMod is simply blowing up this fall. When the team behind the custom ROM decided to go all corporate and form Cyanogen Inc., some of us long-term fans were understandably concerned – any big change carries with it the potential for disaster, and despite all sorts of assurances, we just didn't know what this would all mean for what to many has emerged as the custom ROM to beat. Since first getting that news of incorporation, things have been moving fast for Cyanogen Inc., and we've already seen both the release of a streamlined CyanogenMod Installer app into the Play Store, and a ...

    Back in September, Oppo launched an extremely unusual flagship, its N1. What's so weird about this phone? Well, aside from the rear touch panel and the rotating camera, the handset has official CyanogenMod support. At the time of Oppo's launch announcement, we learned that users would have a choice between running CyanogenMod or the company's own ColorOS. While that's very true, today we hear about a special CyanogenMod Edition of the N1, for users really excited about Oppo and Cyanogen pairing up. Functionally, the differences between this and the stock N1 are minor – while the regular ...
