OPPO’s Neo 7 is now officially in Malaysia


Hardly a week has passed since OPPO made a global announcement of adding another smartphone to its entry-level segment and today, their Malaysian headquarters has released that the Neo 7 will be available from November the 3rd.

The Neo 7 will be the successor to the Neo 5 and its inception brings a new design-focused theme to the Neo series. In spite of setting itself differently when aesthetics are concerned, it’ll receive some much needed performance upgrades as well.


At 5-inches, it rocks a 960 x 540 resolution screen, and runs a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor. Carrying (just) 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, it’ll probably be the most expensive smartphone with that lowly amount of RAM. If your internal storage runs out, there will be a microSD slot to save the day.

Also available on the Neo 7 is LTE support, as both SIM slots give you up to 4G speeds. Anyone who loves photos but doesn’t have the matching cash to dish out will be relatively satisfied with the 8-megapixel f/2.0 rear camera and LED flash module. Once you move over to the front, you’ll see the 5-megapixel shutter that it uses – the screen doubles as a flash-like light source, similar to the iPhone 6s.


The Neo 7 weighs just 141grams and has a 2420 mAh battery underneath its exterior, while its operating system is a self-made ColorOS (version 2.1) that is laid over Android 5.1 Lollipop. Running you back RM 798, it’ll hit store shelves on the 3rd of November and come in two colours – White or Black.
