OPPO has just confirmed that the upcoming OPPO Find X7 series will support satellite communication. Do note that this confirmation comes from OPPO China, so we still don’t know what will the situation be globally.
In fact, the OPPO Find X6 Pro did not launch globally at all, unlike its predecessor, the OPPO Find X5 Pro, and its Find X5 sibling. So we’re not entirely sure the OPPO Find X7 series will make its way to global markets, but we’re hoping it will.
The OPPO Find X7 series will support satellite connectivity, it’s official
Now, OPPO did not share a lot of info in terms of satellite connectivity, it simply confirmed that it will be there. We presume that the implementation will be similar to what some other brands were doing, though.
This setup will make it possible for you to call for help even if you don’t have a signal. That’s the base function, though OPPO may build upon that, of course, and even offer a payment plan for more functionality.
The OPPO Find X7 series is likely coming in Q1 next year. The OPPO Find X6 series launched at the very end of March this year. So if OPPO plans to keep its release cycle, the OPPO Find X7 series will arrive around MWC next year.
The OPPO Find X7 Pro will use the BOE Q1 display & utilize the Sony LYT-900 camera sensor
What do we know thus far? Well, we know that OPPO will use BOE’s new Q1 display on the device. That panel can get immensely bright, and is one of the best offerings out there at the moment.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will fuel the OPPO Find X7 Pro, while the 50-megapixel Sony LYT-900 camera sensor was also confirmed for the device. That is arguably the best LYTIA sensor Sony announced thus far.
The OPPO Find X6 Pro offered an outstanding camera setup, and top-of-the-line specs. We’re expecting something similar from its successor. The OPPO Find X7 will likely be inferior to its ‘Pro’ brother, though we don’t have any info about it thus far.
