Oppo Find 9 has been rumored for so long, but there is no official announcement till now. Oppo Find 7 was announced in March 2014, so Oppo Find 9 should have gone for sale so far. According to recent leak, Oppo Find 9 would be released in 2016, and the reason behind this is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820.
Oppo has released some devices in 2015 of R7 series, like Oppo R7s, Oppo R7, Oppo R7 Plus etc., but nothing we heard about Find series. Oppo Find 9 is expected to features 5.5 inches 2K display and 4GB RAM, the device would be running on customized OS based on Android Marshmallow 6.0.
There are so many devices that are expected to feature Snapdragon 820 Chipset, but getting delayed because manufacturers are not getting the processor they want to use. Xiaomi Mi 5, LeTV Max 2, Green Orange X1 Pro and some other smartphones launch date have been pushed to 2016 as well. We have also heard of heat issue with Snapdragon 820 that Qualcomm is trying to deal with. Snapdragon is trying to keep up with Apple A9, Exynos 8890 and Mediatek Helio X20 Chip. Snapdragon 820 is being said to achieve around 2200 benchmark score in single core performance. If it’s true, this would be great improvement compared to Snapdragon 810.
If you have been waiting for Snapdragon 820, you need to hold on for a little longer. However, it is worth waiting, because there are so many great smartphones that would be launched in early 2016. Samsung Galaxy S7 is also expected to arrive in early 2016.
