OPPO’s adds to its arsenal of entry level devices with the Neo 7


Making its way to 17 countries around the world, OPPO‘s newest device, the Neo 7 will seek to be the direct replacement of the old Neo 5. A premier in India is currently in the works and the device will likely go live by the end of this month.

Being a part of the Neo series means that their latest iteration will carry the same design language and feature a sleek and reflective backing. Design isn’t the only thing that receives a change, as the Neo 7 receives some performance upgrades too.


The smartphone sizes in at 5-inches and sports a low resolution screen (960 x 540). It gets a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, capable of 1.2GHz clock speeds and is mated to 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory (expandable through microSD). Also present on the Neo 7 is LTE connectivity and it’ll come in the form of dual-SIM slots.

It’s spec sheet continues to boast some satisfactory internals, being an entry-level device; there’s an 8-megapixel f/2.0 camera on the back with LED flash, while the front is a 5-megapixel shutter that uses the display as a flash (similar to the iPhone 6s).


It weighs in only at 141grams and measures 142.7 x 71.7 x 7.55mm. You’ll get a 2420mAh battery to power the whole package, there’s ColorOS 2.1 on top of Android 5.1 filling in for the operating system.

As a rough indication, the OPPO Neo 5 launched at RM 538, so we’re hoping their newest entry-level device will fare a similar price point. No actual date has been listed for the launch but we’ll keep everyone in the loop.
