You may have to wait longer than expected for Oppo Find 9. Talks about the device started last year with some reports even claiming that it would come in May this year, the same time its predecessor Oppo Find 7 was released two years ago, but it didn't happen. Now, it has emerged that the release date of the handset could be pushed to 2017.

Popular analyst Pan Jiutang has said that Oppo Find 9 is still under development, which means it will not be able to make it this year. He went on to say that the release of the smartphone could be postponed to 2017 summer.

The Chinese mobile phone manufacturer hasn't revealed any detail about its upcoming smartphone, but a device with model number X9007, believed to be Oppo Find 9, has been spotted on AnTuTu listing. It has a 1,920x1,080p screen resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Adreno 530, 32GB internal memory, 3GB RAM, 16MP main camera and 4GB front-snapper.

However, on the GFXBench site, Oppo Find 9 has been spotted with a fingerprint sensor, 5.5-inch full HD (1920x1080p) screen, MediaTek Helio P10 processor, ARM Mali-T860 GPU, Android 5.1 Lollipop, 64GB internal memory, and 4GB RAM.

It is also reported that the company will introduce the super fast-charging technology -- Super VOOC Flash Charge – that was launched at the MWC 2016. It is claimed that the technology can power a 2,500mAh-battery phone from zero to 100 per cent in just 15 minutes. There are reports that the handset could be priced as high as $616, but it is not confirmed at the moment.
