Yesterday a rumor out of China claimed the legendary Oppo Find 9 would finally be announced in March of next year, almost two years after the debut of its predecessor, the Find 7. This was pretty exciting, if only because the Find 9 has been one of the most rumored devices ever, in fact it's probably the most rumored smartphone that hasn't launched yet.
Today though the situation has changed. A reputed Chinese mobile market analyst has basically said, in no uncertain terms, that the Find 9 will not be launched in the first half of next year. Additionally, an employee of Qualcomm's Chinese arm has pretty much confirmed this, saying that the Find 9 releasing in March is nothing but a rumor.
So there's no telling whether the Find 9 will ever be a real product you can buy. If it does ever become official, that's probably not going to happen in the first half of 2017. Go on, start getting your hopes up for the latter part of next year - maybe unicorns are real, after all.
