Packed with plenty of pixels, the Find 7 is also the first Oppo LTE handset powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor.

BEIJING, China -- Priced at a reasonable $599, Oppo's latest Find 7 has just made its debut in China, and is the first to sport a 5.5-inch Quad HD display. QHD, not to be confused with qHD (960x540 pixels), has a resolution of 2,560x1,440 pixels, which is more than four times as many pixels as you'll find on 720p TVs.

If you're interested in the numbers, that's 538 pixels per inch (PPI), and you'll never have to worry about fuzzy fonts anymore. Apart from a super-sharp screen, the Find 7 comes packing a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, 3GB RAM and 32GB of onboard storage.

Other specs include a 3,000mAh battery, a 13-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash. The Find 7 will support a wide range of LTE bands and should work in most countries, including China, Mexico and the U.S. The smartphone runs a custom firmware called ColorOS, which is based on Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean).

The specs alone of the Find 7 are likely overkill for the average user, so Oppo will be offering a Full HD version (1,920x1,080 pixels) but it has less storage (16GB), a slightly slower quad-core processor (2.3GHz) and a 2,800mAh battery instead. Also announced at the event was a fitness band called O-Band, which tracks your sleep patterns as well.

The Find 7 and Find 7a will be available globally in mid-April and will retail for $599 and $499 respectively.
