Oppo Find 7a hands-on demo – 50MP photos and gestures

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.

    Oppo hmm? They seem to be launching heavy here in Phillipines.

    Whats the difference to the Find 5 though?http://www.pricepony.com.ph/Oppo-Find-5-X909-International-3-1359.html
    I cant find any, and its 8000 PHP cheaper, and launched already.

    Im not sure on the phones from OPPO but for sure they do a great job of marketing their products…

    Disclaimer: Thats our price comparison website. Im honestly interested though why you would buy that one instead of the cheaper one with same specs…

    Cheers Chris

    So, the sensor is not really 50mp but only 13mp? Hmmm.. i’m not interested. Still going to buy the Nokia Lumia 1020 which has 41 megapixel sensor. Plus, in a few months, Cortana will be there too so, yeah. :)

      it also means that they can also make 50MP image or more just a trick of stiching and programming but the quality will still be at best w/ nokia 1020…no cheating =D

    There are news going around that the partition of the Oppo find 7a only allows up to 3gb max for installing Apps, versus a single partition on other phones that allows you to use up the full capacity.
    Anyone here can confirm this?
