You knew it was coming – Quad HD phones are a thing now. Oppo has announced the Find 7 in two versions. There's the Find 7a, which sports a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, and the premium Find 7 with a 5.5-inch Quad HD (2560x1440) LCD. That works out to 538 pixels per inch, because of course you need that many.

The super-high resolution screen isn't the only trick Oppo has up its sleeve this time. The Find 7 is a well-specced phone, but there are several important differences between the regular and "lite" versions. Here's what we're looking at.

Oppo Find 7 ($599)

  • 5.5-inch Quad HD (2560x1440) screen
  • 13 megapixel Sony Exmor IMX214
  • Snapdragon 801 CPU
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB of storage with microSD
  • 3000mAh battery (removable)
  • Android 4.3, Color OS
  • GSM/WCDMA/FDD-LTE/TD-LTE

Oppo Find 7a ($499)

  • 5.5-inch 1080p screen
  • 13 megapixel Sony Exmor IMX214
  • Snapdragon 800 CPU
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB of storage with microSD
  • 2800mAh battery (removable)
  • Android 4.3, Color OS
  • GSM/WCDMA/FDD-LTE/TD-LTE

So the 7a isn't far off from something like the Nexus 5 in the hardware department, but the premium Find 7 is definitely at the top of the heap spec-wise. That Sony image sensor is being put to good use with a feature called Super Zoom. This takes multiple snapshots in quick succession and stitches them together into a larger 50MP image. It can also record 4K video, if that's your thing. This is part of Oppo's Color OS, which is sadly still based on Android 4.3. The battery can supposedly be charged to 75% in just 30 minutes too.

The Oppo Find 7a should be out in early April for $499 and the premium Find 7 will be in late April for $599. Market availability and other details will be released later.
