Chinese smartphone brand OPPO has officially unveiled its latest midrange phone, the OPPO F7 in an event in India. It is the successor of the OPPO F5 and offers improvement in front camera, performance, and display.
The OPPO F7, like any OPPO devices, is a selfie-centric smartphone. It houses a whopping 25MP front camera with Sony 576 sensor HDR. The hardware adjusts exposure to produce well-exposed selfies in different lighting condition. Moreover, with AI beauty 2.0, it recognizes 296 facial spots and fine-tunes the beautification based on gender, age, skin tone, and skin type.
The AI beauty also extends to the 16MP dual back camera that can recognize up to 16 scenes such as food, pets, sky, beach to name a few.
The OPPO F7 boasts a 6.23-inch FullHD+ display (2280X1080 pixels) with 19:9 aspect ratio. There’s a notch on the top, but does it make a top-notch phone? We will have to wait and find out in our review. So, stay tuned.
During the launch event, OPPO didn’t mention which CPU the OPPO F7 comes equipped with. They just said an “Octa-core Processor” which is a shame because this time around it actually features a really powerful Mediatek Helio P60 CPU. It’s the latest from the Taiwanese chipset manufacturer with a 12nm process and a combination of Cortex A73 and Cortex A53 cores. The result is a 70% performance improvement compared to the previous generation Helio P23 chipset used on the OPPO F5.
In terms of storage, there’s either 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of storage. You can expand the storage via a dedicated microSD card slot up to 256GB. In terms of connectivity, you get a dual SIM slot with 4G VOLTE support, WiFi b/g/n (no ac), Bluetooth 4.2, and GPS.
All these are being powered by a 3400mAh battery which promises 33.5 hours of music, 13.4 hours of video playback, and 8.3 hours of gaming.
On the software front, the OPPO F7 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with Color OS 5.0 layered on top. For security, you get software simulated face unlock and a rear-facing fingerprint scanner.
