Chinese handset maker Oppo is expected to introduce at least two versions of its Find 7 smartphone next month, according to recent rumblings. And a post on the company's Weibo social network account suggests that it's true.

Leaked benchmarks from earlier in the week suggest that at least one Oppo Find 7 will feature a 1080p display. Yet, since Oppo went on record to say that it would give the Find 7 a 2K display, this suggests that there could be multiple devices in the works -- an idea supported by the phrasing in Oppo's social networking teaser that Finds "are" coming.

Presumably the only difference between the two versions of the Find 7 will be the display. One could have a 1,920x1,080 pixel resolution while the other could employ a 2,560x1,440 "2K" screen. At 5.5 inches, this would provide a downright crazy 538 pixels per inch. As to whether the Quad HD display matters to most users, that's an argument all its own.

The Oppo Find 7 is expected to debut at Beijing's 798 Art Zone on March 19.
