The Chinese manufacturer, Oppo, just announced their new flagship, the Find 7. Btw, I was writing this article while watching the live stream which was entirely in Chinese so please forgive me if there are any errors.
The Oppo Find 7 is available in two color options: Black and White.
The Oppo Find 5 was the first device to bring a 1080P display to a smartphone and the Find 7 better that, bringing a 2560x1440 display resolution with a whooping 538 ppi.
Another sexy thing about this phone is that the notification LED is a whole strip at the bottom of the display and this looks slick in the dark.

The Find 7 features 3 hardware buttons just like it's predecessor.
It also has 4G LTE support.
This phone features a 13 MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization and 4K video recording at 30 FPS and 720p at 120 FPS which is very impressive.
By taking 10 photos at the back end, the Find 7 can create 50 MP photos with a feature called Superzoom.
It is mentioned in the announcement that the Oppo Find 7 takes excellent pictures in low light.
The Find 7 has a new technology called MaxxAudio Mobile which looks similar to HTC's Boomsound.
FINALLY, someone that speaks English is up on the stage.
The MaxxAudio technology brings excellent Bass to mobile phones and promises premium sound which is similar to the motto of Beats Audio.
MaxxEQ is an equalizer that is included out of the box.
They show a pretty cheesy video about battery life needs to be improved.
VOOC is a new battery technology that works at 4.5 V and aims at reducing power usage.
The battery capacity of this phone is 3000mAH.
They are talking a lot about VOOC but I can't understand anything because it is all in Chinese.
The Find 7 has a custom Android build called ColorOS 1.2 although Oppo announced via their Google+ page that ColorOS 2 is coming up so I guess that will be included out of the box with the Find 7.
Looks like they have some tie up with the Bank of China for NFC payments.
Oppo announced a new wearable device called O-band which looks very similar to the Sony Smartband.
The O-band features a heart rate sensor and it is very thin.
Oppo is pricing the QHD Find 7 at 3,498 CNY, which roughly equals 565 USD, while the fullHD version carries a 2998 CNY price tag, or about 480 USD.
