UPDATE: Pre-orders for Oppo Find 7a starts on 16th April. Available only in White Colour. Full Dealer listing here.
UPDATE 2: Oppo Malaysia has uploaded the Oppo Find 7a pre-order details on its official website. You can check it out here. Pre-order starts on 16th April.
The Oppo Find 7a will be priced at a competitive RM1,598 and it is rolling out on the 15th of May. To secure a unit, Oppo Malaysia will be taking offline pre-orders nationwide from 16th April until 11th of May.
As a special early bird pre-order treat, they are giving out a bluetooth speaker, screen protector and a phone casing package worth RM258 to the first 500. Each person can only pre-order a unit and you would need to place a non-refundable RM100 booking deposit.
Just to recap, the Oppo Find 7a is the low-spec version of the Find 7 series. It gets a 5.5″ Full HD display and runs on a capable 2.3GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 801 processor with 2GB of RAM, 16GB on-board storage with a microSD slot that supports up to 128GB. Juicing up the device is a 2,800mAh removable battery which supports VOOC Rapid Charge. This Ultra fast charging feature is capable of charging up to 75% in just 30 minutes, while a quick 5 minute charge is enough to give 2 hours of talk time. Another interesting feature is its 13MP Sony Camera Sensor which can resample photos up to 50MP resolution. Also for the first time for Oppo, the Find 7 supports 4G LTE including our local bands as well.
At RM1,598, the Oppo Find 7a is a steal compared to other high-end smart phones in the market. In fact, the Malaysian pricing matches its China market price tag of 2,998 Yuan. If this pricing is any indication, its high-end Find 7 smart phone with Quad HD display and 2.5GHz Quad-Core processor is likely to be priced below RM2,000.
