After Oppo launched its latest Oppo A7 smartphone in China, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, the Chinese brand has now launched the same phone in the Indian market.
While the company has announced the smartphone in India, Oppo is yet to announce its pricing. In China, the device is priced at 1,599 Yuan, which roughly converts to $230 or Rs. 16,400. In India, the phone comes in two color options — Glaring Gold and Glaze Blue.
The Oppo A7 features a 6.2-inch IPS LCD notched display that offers a screen-to-body ratio of 88.3 percent. The big display has an anti-reflective coating and is protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass on top.
Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.8GHz. It comes in two models — 3GB RAM and 4GB RAM. Both the models pack 32GB of internal storage and a microSD card that support storage expansion up to 256GB.
Coming to the camera department, there’s a 13-megapixel + 2-megapixel horizontal dual camera setup is present on the rear. It can capture studio-quality portrait shots with bokeh effect through AI beauty technology. For capturing vivid videos, it carries support for multi-frame image stabilization technology. On the front side, it comes with HDR mode enabled 16-megapixel wide-angle lens with support for AR stickers.
Connectivity options on the device include 4G VoLTE, support for dual SIM cards, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, USB OTG, microUSB 2.0, GPS and 3.5mm headphone jack.
