You Can Pre-order the Oppo Find 7a for £330

Oppo's Find 7a is now available for pre-order internationally, and if you're in the United Kingdom, you can expect to pay £330 for the device. Unveiled at an event in mid-March, the Oppo Find 7 is available in two configurations. The Oppo Find 7 comes with a 5.5-inch 2K display, while a second model, the Oppo Find 7a or Oppo Find 7 Lite, packs a respectable (though not quite as exciting) resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. It's this lighter version that is available for pre-order starting today.

Under the hood you're looking at a Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AC SoC with a quad-core CPU (clocked to 2.3 GHz), 2GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, and a 2800 mAh battery. The camera is a 13-megapixel lens that can record 4K video as well as 720p slow-motion clips at 120fps. It can also capture 50-megapixel photos using a new Super Zoom functionality (read about how Oppo pulls that off here). Pocket-Lint points to Oppo Europe, which is selling the device for €399, the equivalent of £330. The Euro price is a little higher than the USD price ($499), but that's no surprise given how the U.S. generally tends to pay a lower price on a lot of electronics.

Oppo is promising shipping in late-April for the Find 7a. Those of you holding out for the more full featured Oppo Find 7 will be waiting a bit longer, as there's no word on when that model will be available. For those wondering, aside from that eye-watering 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 (538 ppi) display, the Find 7 boasts the same Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AC SoC as the Find 7a, but this time the quad-core CPU is clocked to 2.5 GHz. It's also got 3 GB of RAM, a 3,000 mAh battery, a 13-megapixel camera in the back (the same camera tech as the Find 7a), a 5-megapixel camera up front, and 32 GB of storage. So, a lot more impressive than the Find 7a, but also probably a lot more expensive, and there's no telling when it will be available.
