Oppo Find 9 may launch in two variants with Snapdragon SoCs
The Oppo Find 9 was rumored to be the company's next flagship smartphone way back in 2015 when the Snapdragon 810 was the high-end SoC of choice. Rumors propped up again a year later but with the Snapdragon 821 at the heart of the still unreleased Find 9. Now, the latest rumblings have the Find 9 shipping with the mainstream Snapdragon 653 SoC instead since Samsung will apparently have exclusive rights to the Snapdragon 835 flagship for a limited time. A second Find 9 SKU with the Snapdragon 835 may come sometime after the launch of the Galaxy S8.
Aside from the processor differences, both potential SKUs of the Find 9 should be equipped with 5.5-inch AMOLED QHD displays and either 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of internal storage space depending on the model. If the leaked images prove to be true, then the bezels are expected to be very thin with a design not unlike the Nubia Z11 from ZTE.
Other rumored specifications include 21 MP and 16 MP rear and front cameras, respectively, a 4100 mAh battery with VOOC compatibility for fast charging, and Oppo's custom OS skin on top of the Android platform. Prices could start at about 550 Euros with an announcement date at next month's MWC 2017 event.
