In Beijing by the Olympic Park Oppo announced the R7 a midrange wonder that we went hands on with today.
The Oppo R7 comes with a 5 inch AMOLED display that has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 which gives it a Pixel Per Inch (PPI) of 441. Under the hood we’ve got a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 running at 1.7GHz with 3GB of RAM along side an Adreno 405 GPU and is a 64 bit SOC.
Oppo has taken sometime to focus in on the industrial design on the handset, it look a lot like an R5 but what we’ve got is a much more refined feeling handset. Oppo has taken lead from the handle of a violin, it’s been improved upon for centuries and has a substantial purposeful in hand. Oppo is hoping some of this highend feeling is reflected in their new handset…and after an hour or two playing around with it…I’d have to agree.

The camera’s sample photos were stunning and we’ve got a new ISOCELL which allows you to take photos in just 0.7 seconds.
