Qualcomm and Samsung jointly announced the new 10nm process-based Snapdragon 835 chipset last week, and rumours about flagships packing the Snapdragon 835 chip are cropping up already. The latest spin originating from China suggests that the Oppo Find 9 will launch in March 2017 and feature Qualcomm’s next-gen chipset.
The Snapdragon 835 will have eight cores and will integrate the new Adreno 540 GPU for graphics. Apart from that, it will support Quick Charge 4.0, which promises five or more hours of run time with simply five minutes of charging.
The Oppo Find 9 is slated to be Oppo’s flagship for the coming year. Oppo will equip the Find 9 with a 5.5-inch 2K display. Under the hood, the phone will house the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset along with 6GB of RAM.
Oppo will also follow the dual camera setup trend in the Find 9. However, details on the image sensors and optics are unknown as of now. The Find 9 will offer 64GB flash storage to store the photos and videos captured using the dual camera setup.
The Find 9 will run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. We expect Oppo to introduce an iteration of the VOOC flash charge technology in the Find 9 (replacing Quick Charge 4.0). However, the battery capacity is currently unknown. The current generation VOOC flash charge promises 75 percent charge in 30 minutes. OnePlus licensed the same charging technology and brought it as Dash Charging in the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.
There’s no official confirmation or any document that can support this rumor about the Find 9. Hence, we label it as speculation and request you to take it with a grain of salt.
