The smartphone megapixels wars are back on as a new image on the web suggest Oppo might have a 50-megapixel camera powered smartphone.

The Chinese phone manufacturer posted a new photo of a Ford classic taken by the upcoming Find 7 smartphone in a whopping 8,160 x 6,120 resolution.

The posted image may have been enhanced by some post-processing trickery, but it seems like the camera can also resolve some good dynamic range. On the surface we can see a lot of sharp details without any noticeably dark shadows or overblown highlights.

There's a fair bit of purple fringing around the leaves in the background as they meet the sunlight but this is usually a fault of the lens. However, it's still too early to call the smartphone camera's quality from just one image.

Widening the camera gap

If the teaser image turns out to really come from the Oppo Find 7 it would dethrone the Nokia Lumia 1020 from having the highest 41 megapixel camera around.

The smartphone camera technology war is picking this year and thus far we've already seen the 16-megapixel camera on the quicker auto-focusing Samsung Galaxy S5. Soon enough the dual-sensor HTC One 2 will make its reveal, and the iPhone 6 is likely to feature the same 8-megapixel sensor with a wider aperture sapphire lens.

We know megapixels don't account for even half the quality of an image, but it's a big gambit coming from Oppo. The smartphone maker has already put down some big bets on the Find 7. Earlier reports said that the phone will come with a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution display in addition to the more pedestrian 1080p model.

We'll find out if all of this hardware boasting is real very soon when the Oppo Find 7 is announced on March 19.
