Earlier this month, Oppo introduced the Find X7 and Find X7 Ultra smartphones in China. However, rumors are circulating that Oppo will soon unveil another version of the Find X7 Ultra that will support two-way satellite communication. This new variant, known as the Oppo Find X7 Ultra Satellite Version, is expected to face competition from the Xiaomi 14 Ultra.
Oppo Find X7 Ultra Satellite Version vs Xiaomi 14 Ultra
According to Chinese tipster Wisdom Pikachu, the Find X7 Ultra has two variants, with one specifically designed to support satellite connectivity. On the other hand, the Xiaomi 14 Ultra is anticipated to have a single version that incorporates satellite communication capabilities.
Recently, the Find X7 Ultra Satellite Communication Version appeared on the Bluetooth SIG certification platform with the model number PHY120. Apart from the inclusion of satellite connectivity support, the Find X7 Ultra Satellite Communication Version is expected to have the same specifications as the regular X7 Ultra.
Launch and Global Availability
Sources suggest that the Find X7 Ultra Satellite Communication Version will be released in China in March. It will directly compete with the Xiaomi 14 Ultra, which is also expected to make its debut in China during the same month.
In addition to the Xiaomi 14 Ultra, Xiaomi is also rumored to launch its first flip-style foldable phone, the Xiaomi Mix Flip. This device is also expected to support satellite connectivity.
Both the Xiaomi Mix Flip and 14 Ultra are projected to be available in the global market, possibly in the second quarter of the year. Reports indicate that these devices will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 3v chipsets, respectively. However, it is still unclear whether the Find X7 series will be released globally.
With the Oppo Find X7 Ultra Satellite Version and Xiaomi 14 Ultra on the horizon, smartphone enthusiasts can look forward to exciting advancements in satellite communication capabilities.
