Oppo has quite a few devices in its library at this point, and now it is adding another with the R7s, which it has just recently made official.
Oppo’s R7s has plenty of stand-out features, including a 5.5-inch “arc edge” display, which features a 2.5D “arc edge screen” and 1080p HD resolution. That display is flanked by a bezel that measures in at only 2.2mm, for those that hate bezels. Inside, there’s 4GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 quad-core processor, and 32GB of built-in storage. The R7s also supports microSD cards for expandable storage. There’s a 13-megapixel camera on the back of the phone, with an 8MP front-facing camera on the other side.
For its part, Oppo says that the new ColorOS 2.1 user interface has some of its own improvements, including apps that open faster (311ms), “252 optimized scenes,” and a boot speed that the manufacturer says is 30% faster. The software also includes automatic icon sorting with just a quick shake of the device, and an “efficient memory cleaner.” It’s running Android 5.1 out of the box.
The device supports 4G and two SIM cards. The battery is measured in at 3070mAh and is non-removable.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on when the device will launch, how much it will cost, or where it will be available. But considering that it’s official now, it might not be too long of a wait to find out.
