Oppo confirms 2K display for Find 7 smartphone

The Chinese manufacturer may be first to market with a 2,560x1,440 smartphone display.

Could Oppo beat the bigger players to market with a 2K smartphone?

Chinese smartphone maker Oppo may fire the first shot as the war of next-gen displays gets underway. The upcoming Find 7 handset will debut with a 2,560x1,440 pixel (2K) display, according to a recent tweet from the manufacturer. And it seems like only yesterday they were readying the world's first 1080p smartphone.

There are relatively few known specifications about the Find 7; however, the rumors paint a pretty picture. Should the device live up to expectations, consumers could be in for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB RAM and a whopping 4,000mAh battery.

Presumably running Android 4.3 or later, the smartphone should rise to the top of the heap. That is, of course, provided the chatter is correct. Qualcomm only recently introduced its latest quad-core processor, but says it will power devices in the first half of 2014.

Regardless of the full hardware details, the Find 7 may prove to be as expensive as it will be elusive. Its predecessor, the Find 5, debuted at $700 and was only offered in limited, unlocked capacities.

With the annual Consumer Electronics Show taking place in a few weeks, we would not be surprised to see other 2K handsets popping up.
