The war of smartphones would now be fought through pixels and the bigger the pixel, the greater the innovation, or so the latest smartphone megapixel innovation seems to suggest. A new image posted by Oppo is reportedly taken by the forthcoming Find 7 in a mindboggling 8160 x 6120 resolution.

In other words, it’s an onslaught of a big 50-megapixel smartphone camera by Oppo. The picture posted is of a Ford classic via the huge pixel breakthrough. Reports suggest that it would be officially released on March 19 in Beijing.

If the teaser holds any ground and has been taken from the Oppo Find 7, it would claim the Mt. Everest of mega pixel and replace the 41MP Nokia Lumia 1020 that held the honor of the highest megapixel and its glory.


It isn’t a revolutionary incident in the arena of smartphones and the megapixels. Companies after companies have announced higher pixels and sought the market’s attention, now and then. 16MP camera from Samsung Galaxy S5 is already here. All new HTC One with dual sensor should be here any time now. iPhone 6 is believed to have the same 8MP sensor, however, having a broader aperture sapphire lens. Coming from Oppo, this is big news for the way it’s tied the marketing of Find 7 to its megapixels.

It’s evident that Find 7 that’s likely to bring a 2K display, 3GB of RAM and Snapdragon 801 CPU would make a sophisticated smartphone with exciting features, in case Oppo markets it well all over the world and the phone has substance to sustain its charm beyond 50MP.

How many megapixels can do for the quality of the image is a matter of discussion for those who hold expertise in the domain but the masses may simply like the digit 50 for its megapixels. Find 7 is reportedly to be launched in two variants, one having 2560 x 1440 resolution display and the other which has a 1080p screen. The 1080p version is said to cheaper than 1440p. The FHD 1920 x 1080 model would’ve the same resolution as that of the existing Find 6 device whereas the QHD 2560 x 1440 resolution version would’ve the same resolution as the Vivo Xplay 3S.

It’s indeed true that a picture is a thousand words but the teaser used by Oppo may not suffice to prove its competence. It would remain to be seen how it actually works and sustains the quality of images it captures through 50MP camera. While the 50MP is a catchy figure to lure the customer, the quality of the image may be affected by other factors as well and hence, it would be too early to rule out the worth of competing companies and their existing and proven smartphones, purely based on the megapixels.

The hardware, if it’s well and truly as effective, would be well revealed itself when Find 7 finds its way into the market on March 19.
