Oppo officially launches the Find 7a and at the same time, released the price of the Find 7. In this quick video demonstration, an Oppo representative shows us how the 50MP photos coming from a 13MP camera does its trick and how off-screen and on-screen gestures work.
The idea behind Oppo’s whopping 50-megapixel images is that you take a photo of a still object for a few seconds. What the sensor does is take 10 photos and digitally stitch them altogether to achieve 50MP shots. According to the representative, these images could be printed on a tarpaulin as big as 10 square meters.
The off-screen gestures are pre-set gestures that could function even when the screen is locked. For example, two taps on the screen activates it – pretty much like LG’s Knock On feature. Drawing a circle brings you to the camera, while drawing a letter “V” opens the flashlight. With on-screen gestures, you can customize the symbol for specific functions. In this case, a letter “R” was assigned to let you record videos instantly.
Gestures on video playback are also present thanks to its ColorOS 1.2 on top of its Android 4.3. Swiping the right side vertically while playing videos toggles the volume control while the left is for brightness. Users can also multitask with this device like, for example, watch a video and go write a new message.
These are just some of the many features of Oppo Find 7a. It is now available at any authorized Oppo retailers in the Philippines with a price of Php22,990. Stay tuned for our full review of this new player.
