Today on May 20th, the Chinese company Oppo unveiled its new products called R7 and R7 Plus, two smartphones that are looking great and pack high-end features. These phones were leaked a couple of weeks ago in numerous pictures and now we get to see how they really look like. The first thing noticed is their slim shell and the premium construction.
Oppo R7 is a 5-inch phone that offers Full HD resolution, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and 2.5D curved glass. We have an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, 3 GB of RAM memory, 16 GB space of internal storage and support for microSD cards up to 128 GB using the SIM dedicated place.
This phone arrives with a 13-megapixel rear camera (Schneider-Kreuznach lens), LED flash, a 8-megapixel front-facing sensor and 4G LTE connectivity. Oppo R7 offers a 2.320 mAh battery with QuickCharge technology and Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system. R7 measures only 6.3 mm in thickness and weighs around 147 grams.
As its name suggest, Oppo R7 Plus is a phablet device that offers an edge-to-edge Full HD display. The 6 inch panel is covered by Gorilla Glass 3 and inside the case we get 3 GB of RAM memory, the same Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor and 32 GB space of internal storage.
In addition, the R7 Plus comes with laser autofocus for the rear camera and dual-LED flash. This phone arrives in the package with a fingerprint scanner placed on the back, 4G LTE, dual-SIM and a 4.100 mAh battery with QuickCharge VOOC technology. There’s a microSD card slot and Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system.
In terms of differences between the two phones we see that Oppo R7 Plus uses on-screen control buttons and not capacitive ones as the 5-inch model. Thereby, the chin of the R7 Plus is less smaller compared. Apparently, Oppo R7 will cost $400, while the 6-inch phablet will be sold for almost $480.
