Engadget has had a chance to test Oppo Find 7 smartphone camera - a high end smartphone long rumored to feature 50MP sensor. In fact, it is built around 13MP Sony IMX214 sensor, but has an interesting feature: "50-megapixel "Super Zoom" creation: the camera takes 10 consecutive shots extremely quickly, and then it automatically picks four best shots to combine them into a 50-megapixel still.
