Oppo Find 7 could be a beast: Snapdragon 805, 2560 x 1440 display

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 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 display, 3GB of RAM, 13-megapixel main camera (with big 5-megapixel front-facer), and of course LTE support.

Qualcomm is sampling the 805 now, and we previously heard the company say that devices featuring the chip could be commercially available sometime in the first half of next year. That’s still a pretty wide release window, so hopefully we’ll hear some more about the Find 7 soon, helping us clarify (or correct) those hardware details and giving us a little more precise idea of when to expect Oppo to announce this guy.
