Nope, not a car post…
Oppo might have a beast of a camera under “the hood” of the upcoming Oppo Find 7. After mentioning a 5.5-inch, 2560×1440 resolution display in one of the teaser images in the past (along with a 5.0-inch, 1920×1080 version) and running the new Snapdragon 801 SoC, the latest bit of spec to leak is a 50 megapixels camera. Yes, FIFTY megapixels. This would in fact give it the title at the moment for a smartphone previously held by Nokia with the 40mp Lumia.
An image uploaded on Weibo has a resolution of 8160×6120 and the EXIF data clearly mentions the Oppo Find 7 as the camera name. It’s hard to judge overall camera quality from just one image but it’s a decent looking image nonetheless with a fair amount of detail and not much noise but there is a good amount of purple fringing. The image looks a lot better when resized to around 8 megapixels so hopefully Oppo will have a Lumia PureView like oversampling option. The truth is, all you need is 8MP for good photos.
In any event, the Find 7 will be announced in Beijing on March 19th.
