Oppo Find 9 may ship with a Snapdragon 810
There were already rumors back in January about the Oppo Find 9 using an 8-core Snapdragon 810 SoC with integrated Adreno 430 graphics. Now, China Mobile has seemingly confirmed it through its own website. The telecommunications company is mentioning the Oppo Find 9 with a Snapdragon 810 alongside its brand new high-speed LTE network in Guangzhou.
China Mobile and ZTE are announcing the launch of 3-CA 4G LTE-A (LTE Advanced) services in certain commercial areas. By utilizing the new network, users with Snapdragon 810-powered smartphones can achieve theoretical download rates of more than 300 Mbps. In comparison, this is roughly three times the speed of existing TD-LTE networks.
While the company doesn't list further details on the Oppo Find 9, previous rumors claim a massive 4 GB RAM. Unfortunately, the Snapdragon 810 has been making headlines for its high operating temperatures and throttling issues from disgruntled owners of the Fujitsu Arrows NX, Sharp Aquos Zeta, and Sony Xperia Z4. There are also similar problems with the HTC One M9 to a lesser extent, though Samsung has largely dodged the issue with its Galaxy S6. Hopefully, the Oppo Find 9 will have a smoother and cooler launch.
