The pictures have already been removed of course, but nothing that gets posted on the internet remains as a secret and it looks like the Find 7 looks pretty much like the Find 5 with a pretty square design and similar button layouts on the side. There is also a nice LED notification panel at the bottom of the phone.
The Oppo Find 7 will come in two different variants – one will sport a super shart 5.5” 2K resolution while the other will be equipped with a Full HD display instead.

With a rugged outlook and jet black leather pants, it’s hard to imagine that Marc Dillon is a COO and co-founder to one of Finland’s hottest startups. The 11-year ex-Nokia veteran speaks with a demeanour unlike most professionals, and his energy is infectious as he interacts with everyone he meets at Jolla’s MWC 2014 booth. With such positive energy, it is still surprising when he says, without a hint of doubt, “I believe this is gonna be the year of Sailfish”.
This is Lowyat.NET’s exclusive interview with Jolla’s Marc Dillon.
After the big reveal a couple of days ago, the biggest question on car-owners minds was of course “Can I get CarPlay for my car?”. Unfortunately there are no official plans at the moment to make it backwards compatible or to non-partner manufacturers cars but Mercedes-Benz however have just said that they will be planning to deliver an aftermarket solution for older cars to make full use of the Apple CarPlay by the end of the year. So far it’s just Mercedes but I won’t be surprised if other partners like Ford outline their plans soon.
Unfortunately for me, no Kia supported =(
I wonder how long it will take for 3rd party manufacturers to come up with a solution
