According to the company’s own reports, as well as independent probes of the global smartphone market by trusted analysts, business has been good for OPPO lately, despite the China-based budget specialist last unveiling a true flagship way back in spring of 2014.
But now it’s unclear what’s holding off the Find 9 announcement, after the recent invasion of 820-powered handhelds from Samsung, LG, HTC, Sony, Xiaomi, LeEco, and even HP. Proving the release is still on, a couple of benchmarks have cropped up in the past few weeks, likely putting both Find 9 and 9a prototypes to various early tests.
The results aren’t very important at this point, with GFX Bench and now AnTuTu revealing first and foremost the two’s main specifications. The slightly lower-end X9007 version, which we’ll call the OPPO Find 9a for convenience, apparently packs “just” 3GB RAM, also offering Full HD screen resolution, 32GB internal storage space, and 16 and 4MP camera prowess.
Meanwhile, we’d like to remind you the top-of-the-line configuration was not long ago divulged to feature 4GB memory, 64GB ROM, 16 and 12 megapixel shooters, and weirdly enough, the same 1,080p pixel count on a 5.5-inch display.
Last but not least, OPPO will almost certainly hook up both Find 9 and 9a buyers with Snapdragon 820 power. If the phones ever materialize, that is.
