Oppo Find 7 teases a 50MP camera, check out the amazing sample photo!

Oppo Find 7 teaser video

Bigger is better. At least that’s what Android OEM Oppo might have you believe. We’ve already seen in a previous teaser the manufacturer teasing a 2K display for their upcoming flagship, the Oppo Find 7. Now, today we’re learning they might also be planning something equally big for it’s imaging hardware tech: a 50MP camera. Yes, folks — five, oh.

OPPO Find 7 sample shot

An image, apparently taken by Oppo with an Oppo Find 7 (how’s that for a “leak”?) was uploaded to Chinese microblogging site Weibo, weighing in at 9.7MB and carrying a resolution of 8160 x 6120. Yikes. We’ll have to see what else Oppo is planning for the Find 7 when it becomes official on March 19th in Beijing. Until then, click the image for the full size version and let us know if you’re impressed, or if MP are nothing but a number.

      Holy crap!! It actually took a moment for the picture to load. =.S

      Eat your heart out Nokia.

      • http://nokiabits.com/ giodelgado

        pls, even if it’s 100 MP I don’t think it’ll match Nokia’s oversampling software and ZEISS quality…

        let’s wait for the results ;-)

    • http://www.twitter.com/OtisFeelgood1 OtisFeelgood

      Well damn. o_O

    • Jamal Adam

      Wow!! All that detail is ridiculous. I could see even the guy (bus driver i assume) standing on the bus all the way in the back of the picture. I’m beyond impressed.

    • R_Fact

      It is not sharp at all. Why is this impressive? Because it has a laot of blurry and noisy pixels. Ooh.

      • Robb Nunya

        I didn’t want to rain on their parade, but this. It doesn’t really impress at 100% crop.

  • BronzeLincolns

    i got my eye on these guys along with the OnePlus.

  • Mike Baustian

    Wow! I expected the full res photo to look terribly grainy but to my surprise it is fairly clean! I am incredibly impressed as long as it doesn’t mean a huge camel hump on the phone.

    Also there looks to be a lot of lens distortion around the edges of the image. Things like the parking meter and signs are just not quite reality based perspective…but that is a simple software fix or quick edit in photoshop!

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Yeah, seems to be a wide angle camera. Like you, I was super surprised to find that even when zooming in, the details in the image were exceptionally clear. Hyped about this phone again :)

  • Poop_floats

    Wow! I’m finally impressed by a camera on a phone. Unbelievable!!!

    • Sean Royce

      How are you finally impressed? Nokia have been making great phone cameras for years. As have Apple.

  • Delmar

    alright im impressed by the camera, but what else you got ?

    • Kelly Caffrey

      Removable 4000 mAH Battery
      Sd card slot
      2K (2560×1440) display (5.5″ screen size)
      Snapdragon 805 processor (were just seeing 801’s in the upcoming phones like the S5)
      3 gs of ram

      now this 50MP camera

      Insane specs.

      • Delmar

        but the galaxy note 3 though

        • Kelly Caffrey

          The area where the note 3 matches the find 7 is the amount of ram is has, 3.

          The oppo find 7 destroys it at everything else :o

          edit – actually the find 7 tops any smartphone out right now and those to be announced; the specs are literally insane.

          • Delmar

            but the S pen and massive 5.7 inch screen and running like 8 apps at the same time(tested). idk in my opinion Samsung is ahead of the pack in software, specs dont mean anything if it can blow me away software wise

          • Guest

            True, I was unaware you were getting at software, in that case the samsung products are killin it with the spen and multi windows stuff, but lg and sony have something along the lines of multi windows/apps at the same time

      • T4rd

        This only impresses me if the phone is the size of a Note 2/3 or smaller. If it’s > 6″ (which I would assume so with a 2k display and 4000 mAh battery), then that’s quite the trade-off for it being a “phone.”

        • Kelly Caffrey

          screen size is 5.5″ which is about .2″ less than the note 3 ( 5.7″ ) :D
          well for sure we know the screen isn’t bigger than the note 3 so lets hope its no more than 6″
          ~insert fingercrossed

          • LevelingTheDebate

            I wouldn’t mind either way. Oppo has a very nice design philosophy so I’m sure regardless of screen size it will be very friendly to the hand :D

      • Robb Nunya

        Sadly, still no CDMA though…

  • aranea100

    I’m intrigued. Will it come to USA?

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Last time the Oppo Find 5 supported 4G HSPA networks, hoping the Find 7 will support T-Mobile/AT&T 4G LTE.

      • aranea100


      • J Cav the Great

        even if it does not support LTE, for the right price, I’ll cop it..I have a HSPA GS3 and its fast enough . at least for my use which is YouTube and music streaming.

  • onlygoodtime88

    google should buy oppo for the nexus and use this 50mp camera

    • bluevoodo

      Or they can just source they’re camera equipment from where ever Oppo got theirs, the problem with Nexus cameras is not the hardware its the software. The Nexus camera UI is bad, and its camera software algorithms are horrible due to the fact that Google works very hard trying to make it open source. HTC Sony Samsung LG all work with closed source drivers and proprietary technology, therefore Nexus ends up with some less than perfect cameras.

      • mikexilva

        Nexus 5 camera is one of the best cameras on a smartphone at the moment. Just the UI has some issues, but hardware and image quality is top notch

  • smithj33

    Megapixels have nothing to do with this image or any other image other than the dimensions and file size. A good camera is a good camera.

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Yup. I heard “50MP” and wasn’t impressed. Saw the output and my jaw dropped.

      • JBrowne1012

        Really not impressed by 50mp? Thats a major part of why this photo has a great amount of lossless detail lol lets quit saying megapixels have nothing to do with it because it really does have a lot to do with it.

        • Duong Duc Ngo

          The picture is in fact nice but we it look like it was taken at good outdoor lighting. Many low mp camera can take good outdoor picture. The true test is when you have indoor or low light. A good camera do not mean anything if the shutter is slow. You see better low end DSLR with 13 to 16 mp get better picture then this.

          • bobfrea

            really comparing this to any DSLR? it’s not dark conditions, but not bright sunlight either. i think we’ll need more than a teaser to judge, but so far it looks decent.

          • Robb Nunya

            The only reason it’s compared to a DSLR is to explain why MP =/= great pictures.

          • Devon Warren

            Agreed, the picture looks nice but even on my old Galaxy Nexus i could take a great picture under perfect conditions but if there wasn’t enough light or my hand shook even the tiniest amount it would turn out awful. That being said I’m sure it’s still good but don’t expect this kind of photo every time.

        • uniquename72

          Entirely false. Pretty much any camera COULD be made to take 50mp pictures with the right engineering. But cramming that many pixels onto a small sensor will VASTLY increase noise, degrade color and detail, and make a generally crappy picture.

          That’s why 14mp on a pro-level Nikon (even with a cheap lens) looks infinitely better than 20mp on a crappy point-and-shoot.

          Something else is going on to make this picture as good as it is — very likely a second camera sensor.

  • Steven Skwarkowski

    I’ve always wanted to try an Oppo phone. This only makes me want to ditch my Note 3 even more.

  • Mark E. McDaniel

    The adds on this site is crazy. Enough already…I can’t even load a pic without adds and crap all over it…going back to the other site…that is all…

    • bluevoodo

      Seriously dude, you dont know about adblock? Are you using Internet Explorer as well?

      • Mark E. McDaniel

        Bluevoodo I am on a phone reading this. Why should I have to use add blockers just to read? This crap is crazy. Not to mention all the extra data usage to load the crap that no one even cares about…

        • bluevoodo

          Ummm because thats how websites make money, through advertisements. If you have a problem with that wait till you find out how google makes its money.

          • Mark E. McDaniel

            Sit down and shut up stupid!

          • Max

            If you were using the phandroid app you’d only have 1 small add to deal with…

  • Truefact

    Already using Oppo n1.. Looking forward to this classic one.

  • LevelingTheDebate

    This is by far the most promising phone to come out and most likely the best phone of the year. A phone I will gladly not get bored of for two years. (This is coming from a iOS lover).

  • steveb944

    OMG this is beautiful. I was thinking 50 mp, who cares, wow I was wrong. I can’t wait to see more about this device. I just hope it’s a small chassis as that’s a pretty big screen

  • dawabz94

    50Mp is good but I would personally prefer they focus on image quality itself, low light performance, bigger sensor to get nice bokeh and RAW support
    If I get those with even “just” 10Mp, I would be happy

    • lolwut

      That picture looks pretty good to me

      • Robabobbob

        It does look pretty good indeed but it’s outside in natural light which is about as easy as it gets to take a good photo. If the low light performance is half as good then it’s on to a winner.

      • dawabz94

        Sure it looks good
        But the depth of field looks like one of a small sensor, lacks bokeh
        And once again current smart phones provide good image in natural light
        The next enhancement I expect is low light performance rather megapixel race :)

  • Don_SoLow

    1 picture = a 320 kbps mp3…. That’s way too much

    • lolwut

      Good news! You don’t have to buy one!

      And I’m sure there’s a setting so you don’t HAVE to shoot at 50mp

    • NexusKoolaid

      LOL I guess a picture really is worth a thousand words.

  • Alex Cruz

    I like how everyone thinks they’re a photography expert all of a sudden hahaha

    At the end of the day, if you don’t like a device……you don’t have to buy it!

    These companies are not putting a gun to your head or asking you to fund these devices….

    Also, I’m pretty much that 50 MP is not going to be the default so let’s calm down, alright?

  • mikexilva

    The license plate doesn’t seem to that much in focus, maybe lens can’t keep focus further from image center.. lens quality/resolution needs to be higher when dealing with more MP sensors, but it’s still pretty good for a small package..
