After a lot of rumours and numerous leaks, the Chinese manufacture Oppo has finally released their beautiful all-metal Oppo R7 and R7 Plus devices. Both devices have an upper-midrange class specs, but the main aspect of both of the devices is the design.

Oppo R7


Let us start by the Oppo R7. It is a smaller model, which has a 1080p 5 inch display. It spots a metal unibody and the 2.5D glass on the front. It is indeed a very attractive looking device, which was a primary focus by Oppo while producing it.

The Oppo R7 spots a Snapdragon 615 chip, has 3 GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, which can be further expanded via the Micro SD card up to 128GB. There is also a dual SIM card tray (one being a micro SIM, another doubles as nano SIM/MicroSD card slot).  Moreover, the smartphone has a 13 MP back camera with LED flash and aperture of f/2.2. Also, there is an 8MP shooter on the front with the aperture of f/2.4. All of this is powered by the 2320 mAh battery (non-removable), which may sound weak, but as usual to Oppo devices, it supports Oppo’s VOOC fast-charging technology, which lets you charge the device up to 75% in about 30 minutes of time.

Oppo R7 Plus


The Oppo R7 is a bigger brother, which carries a very similar design to the R7. This giant has all the same specs, but there are a few differences.  Of course, the main difference here is that the R7 carries a much larger, 6 inch 1080p Super Amoled display. Another thing that separates it from the R7 is that it has a fingerprint scanner just below the back camera. Moreover, the bigger screen requires some more power and here Oppo decided to implement a juicy 4100 mAh non-removable unit.

The devices are up for pre-order and the good thing that it can be bought easily from Oppo’s official store Oppostyle.com. The Oppo R7 costs around $400 and the R7 Plus has the price-tag of around $480 for Chinese market, but we should expect similar prices on the international e-store.

Oppo seems to have nailed the design here by providing a classy all-metal and 2.5D glass combination. However, it does not carry the bleeding-edge specs for all those geeks out there. Still, we see a very reasonable package here and we cannot wait to get our hands-on. Any takers? Please let us know in the comments section below.
