Priced at the equivalent of US$230 in China and around US$310 in Nepal, the Oppo A7 is a 6.2-inch handset with a Snapdragon 450 inside, as well as 4 GB of memory and 32 or 64 GB of internal storage. There is also a generous 4,320 mAh battery, dual cameras on both sides, as well as HyperBoost capabilities.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
