by Joel 0

Yesterday, we saw two new potential devices from OPPO namely the OPPO R7 and the OPPO R7 Plus. Today, we have some more information about these two devices from insider sources.

Ray Technology reveals that OPPO will most likely release its OPPO R7 flagship along with the R7 Plus at an event on May 20. This puts the release date not too far, around a month later.

OPPO R7 leaked

Although the R7 was rumored to be the bezelless smartphone that has been making rounds on the internet, yesterday’s leak reveals that the phone will concentrate more on its slimness. The OPPO R5 is still one of the thinnest smartphones in the market and it looks like its successor, the R7 will also continue that tradition. It is said that the phone may be thinner than 5mm and from the leaked render, it does feel like the phone is super thin. But the company probably will not try to beat the 4.85mm thick body found on the R5, as its hard to fit in a decent battery on a slim device.

The R7 will most likely feature the new Helio X10 MT6795 processor with a powerful 20.7MP camera and 2000mAh battery. There will be a 4.7-inch display with 1080p resolution and 2.5D glass. On the other hand, the OPPO R7 Plus is said to come with a larger display along with a much larger battery. As a result, the phone will be much thicker than the R7. The company may also incorporate an infrared laser sensor on the device probably for faster focus.

Given that we are getting new information about OPPO devices regularly, we expect more details in the coming few weeks.
