At this stage you might not be aware of OPPO or what they are up to, but you should really take notice. The Chinese manufacturer has made some inroads in North America, is one of the leading manufacturers in its home territory and is expanding into Europe and the rest of the world. We might even start seeing them pop up on our shores sometime soon.
The company have now revealed their latest flagship devices, the R7 and the R7 Plus. While it may not be the official launch event (which happens on May 20th), but we now know exactly what they look like.
This full metal body seen in the pictures looks sleek, and the phone has been teased as having “˜no bezels‘ on the sides of the phone. While that is not exactly accurate, OPPO employs a smart trick with 2.5D glass to make it appear as if there are no bezels.
We knew the R7 was coming, but the big surprise is the OPPO R7 Plus which is also revealed in these renders. As expected, it is the bigger brother of the R7 and will most likely include all of the same specs. Additionally, though, it comes with a fingerprint scanner at the back of the device.
We wait to hear more from OPPO, but we would love to get a go at these device, even without knowing too much about them. What do you think of the looks? Let us know in the comments below.
