The OPPO R7 series little sibling, the R7 Lite is now officially available in Malaysia. It was released in conjunction with its Mid Valley Megamall roadshow that’s happening at the East Entrance until 6th September 2016.
Among the 3 models, the R7 Lite brings its premium all metal build to a more affordable price point of RM1,298. As comparison, the standard OPPO R7 is priced at RM1,598 while its larger R7 Plus phablet is priced at RM1,998.
The OPPO R7 Lite exterior is identical with the OPPO R7. It gets a 5″ HD 720p AMOLED screen, a Snapdragon 615 Octa-Core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage expandable with microSD, a 13MP main and 8MP front facing camera. It also gets a hybrid microSD + dual-SIM card slots that support 4G LTE. With a 2,320mAh capacity battery, the R7 Lite is only 6.3mm thick and it weighs 147 grams.
As comparison to the standard OPPO R7, the R7 Lite is a notch below with just 2GB RAM instead of 3GB RAM and the screen pushes just HD 720p resolution instead of Full HD 1080p on the OPPO R7. While the battery capacities are the same, the R7 Lite lacks its faster VOOC Flash charging. Below is a chart to show the differences of its current ultra-thin OPPO R series.
