Oppo A7 with waterdrop notch and 4230 mAh battery launched
Oppo launched the F9 series smartphones in Nepal couple of months , which sold like hot cakes off the shelves and now the company is preparing to launch its latest A7 series.
Oppo seems to have learnt a lesson from Xiaomi here as it has decided to launch its fresh lineup just like the Pocophone F1.
The A7 is set for launch in China on the 13th of November. And shortly thereafter will launch in our Nepali market possibly within November.
There’s nothing overly impressive about the specs – battery aside, it’s a decidedly low-end package – but the price is pegged at NRs. 26,890, or about £125, so you’re very much getting what you pay for.
As far as specifications are concerned, the Oppo A7 will feature 6.2-inch 1520 x 720 HD+ notched display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 450 processor with Adreno 506 GPU coupled with 3GB or 4GB of RAM and with 32GB or 64 GB of storage option. Memory will be expandable up to 256GB via micro sd card.
The camera department will include dual rear camera setup with a combination of 13-megapixel with f/2.2 aperture and 2-megapixel with f/2.4 aperture. For the front, it will have a 16-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture.
The dual SIM based Oppo A7 is packed with a 4,230mAh battery will run Android 8.1 Oreo with ColorOS 5.2 on top. There are connectivity features like dual-SIM support, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, micro USB 2.0 and 3.5mm headphone jack. Its dimensions are 155.9 x 75.4 x 8.1 mm and it weighs 158g.
Sensors on board include E-Compass, Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, G-Sensor and Acceleration Sensor.
Reportedly it will be priced at 1,599 Yuan (approx. NRs.26,890).
The Oppo A7 is expected to be released on November 30 in blue and ambergold colour options following a November 13 launch in China.
