Oppo officially launches R7 and R7 Plus midrange smartphones
Oppo has unveiled its two new midrange handsets, the Oppo R7 and R7 Plus. According to early rumours, the R7 was supposed to feature bezel-less design. However, as it turned out, the device comes with a „normal” front panel. The R7 Plus, on the other hand, does have pretty thin frames around the display, making it quite appealing visually.
The Oppo R7 comes with a 5-inch display and the R7 Plus with a 6-inch one – both feature FullHD resolution. Both smartphones are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC supported by 3 GB of RAM. Also the cameras are the same: 13 MP main with f/2.2 lens and 8 MP, f/2.4 front ones for selfies.
This is where the similarities end. The R7 Plus is equipped with a fingerprint scanner on the back while the R7 isn’t. The bigger phone’s battery capacity is 4100 mAh, while the smaller – only 2320 mAh. Both devices support Oppo's VOOC fast-charging technology, which should allow the batteries to charge up to 75% in only about 30 minutes.
Oppo R7 and Oppo R7 Plus are now available in China. The former is priced at around $400, while the latter at $480. Debut in other markets has been set for June.
