Oppo made its Indian debut not too long ago, and has been consistently bringing in all the devices from its international portfolio here. After the Oppo N1, the next flagship device(s) to land here in India are the Find 7a and more importantly, the Find 7. Both these devices were announced for the Indian market, with prices at Rs. 31,990 for the Find 7a and Rs. 37,990 for the Find 7. The major differences between those two? The display, and the amount of RAM, with the rest of them only minor. The Oppo Find 7 is truly a successor to the Find 5 though, as the Find 7, much like its predecessor, has one of the firsts in the world, when it comes to the display. But quad HD resolution on a 5.5″ screen with the latest Snapdragon processor also qualifies the Find 7 for the top end competition, which includes the likes of LG G3. With that said, we have it here in the retail form, and here is our unboxing treatment of the Find 7, to give you a fairly decent look at the hardware as well as the software –

Oppo launched its all new camera centric flagship – the N1 a while back and also announced that the International version of the N1 will come with the Color ROM pre-installed.

Oppo, a relatively new player in the Smartphone world, had already impressed us with the beautifully made Find 5, its current flagship device. But as any company that looks to expand its portfolio, Oppo has sought to address the mid-range market, which brings volume as well as the ability to reach more people. The R819 is a step in that direction. Armed with a 4.7 inch 720p display, a super thin 7.3mm profile and an 8 megapixel camera, the device is a decent cut-down in specifications when compared to the Find 5, literally in every sense, including thickness and weight. Oppo is now getting into the very similar yet extremely crowded mid-range category, but does the R819 impress enough to stand out? Read on for our fully detailed review below.
Note: Check out the 360 degree view of the Oppo R819 before proceeding towards the full review!

We have already seen how the Oppo Find 5 had a great camera. If that wasn’t any indication how the Chinese company is serious about cameras, we have more information coming in. Oppo has just confirmed to Engadget on a previous scoop that they are indeed developing a new series of camera centric devices dubbed the “N-Lens”. These devices are more of connected cameras and less of cameraphones if the initial information is to be believed. But, the company also says that the N-Lens series of devices will be “most important flagship series for Oppo going forward.”
