Oppo has launched quite a few smartphones in the past year or so, but none can truthfully be called top of the line in terms of specs. The last Oppo flagship was the Find 7, which was released in May 2014. So, understandably, January 2015 is when information about the Chinese company working on the Find 9, its would-be successor, first got out.
Yet 2015 came to an end without the Find 9 ever getting official. Towards the end of the year we heard that the mythical smartphone would only surface in 2016, so now there’s a new rumor out of China talking about it.
Apparently the Oppo Find 9 will finally be announced in June, with availability following soon after that. As this is an unconfirmed rumor at the moment, do take it with a pinch of salt.
The Find 9 may allegedly cost as much as CNY 3,998, which at the current exchange rates means $615 or 545. It could even sport a 4K-capable display, along with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC running things. The new and improved Super VOOC fast charging should be in too, as well as a camera with SmartSensor image stabilization.
