Just how many megapixel counts do you need in your phone’s camera. Apparently, for Chinese phone maker Oppo, it’s something like 50 megapixels. This is the number of megapixels rumored to be offered in the upcoming Oppo Find 7 Android phone. Fifty megapixels sound absurd, and in essence, it is in fact absurd. A camera with a 50-megapixel sensor has a higher megapixel count than Nokia’s best Pureview camera but the question is, will the high megapixel count matter?

Image quality is still what’s important and if you know the basics of photography, you should be aware that megapixel count is not everything. It’s also important that your phone’s camera has a good sensor and a good lens. A combination of these elements makes for a good phone camera. In any case, it still remains to be seen how the Oppo Find 7 will fare in real world situations. After all, the phone has still not been officially launched.
The OPPO Find 7 will have a 5.5-inch 2600×1440 display, Snapdragon 800 processor and 3GB of RAM. The official launch date is March 19 so we will know what the phone offers very soon.
