Qualcomm Snapdragon 450-powered Oppo A7 with 4,320 mAh battery now up for pre-order in China
Oppo is back with the A7, a handset that has been in the rumor mill for a while. Sadly, this 6.2-inch affordable handset is only available for pre-order in China and Nepal as the first mid-range device by this company to provide the HyperBoost feature (if you were wondering, just think about Huawei's GPU Turbo technology that Oppo uses for automatically overclocking both the GPU and CPU when needed).
The Oppo A7 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor and features 4 GB of memory. Depending on the model, it comes with 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage space. The main camera is a 13 + 2 MP combo, but the selfie shooter is more powerful, bringing together a 16 MP sensor and an 8 MP Beauty shot sensor (for bokeh effects, of course), not to mention the now-ubiquitous AI features.
In addition to the above, there is nothing out of ordinary, since the display only provides a modest 720p resolution, there is no NFC connectivity, and the lack of USB Type-C connectivity brings a rather long charging time for the generous 4,320 mAh battery. The operating system that comes onboard is Google's Android, with Oppo's ColorOS 5.2 UI on top.
The Chinese market gets the Oppo A7 in Glaring Gold, Glaze Blue, and Powder Pink, while Nepal is left without the pink color choice. However, the prices are also different — around US$230 in China and roughly US$310 in Nepal. Other markets might get this device at a later time, but there is no official information about this yet.
