The upgraded version of OPPO’s R7 smartphone is set to make its worldwide debut at the Gulf Information Technology Exhibition (GITEX) on 18th October. Likely to retain the same design as the current R7 series, the new model is to be called the OPPO R7s.
While they haven’t officially released the specs for the device, the brand claims that the device will have a bigger battery, screen and double the storage of the R7 plus a stronger frame and camera.
As far as rumoured specs go, the device is expected to have a Snapdragon 615 SoC with a 1.5GHz CPU under the hood mated to 3GB RAM and 32GB expandable storage via microSD slot. It will also have a 5.5 inch Full HD AMOLED display as well as a 13 megapixel rear and 8 megapixel camera combo. It is expected to run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. No word on the battery capacity however.
If the rumours are true, then the device would be a slight step up from the original R7, be it only in screen size and internal storage.
Aside from the R7s, OPPO will also be showing off many of their other devices such as the R7 Plus, R7 Lite, Mirror 5 as well as the R7 Plus FC Barcelona Edition. Speaking of which, to commemorate the new partnership, OPPO’s booth will also include a football pitch, just to drive the partnership home.
The launch is a little under two weeks away but we will be sure to update more on launch day itself.
