Oppo Officially Unveils The Oppo F7, Comes With a 25 Megapixel Front Camera
The Oppo F7 has officially been unveiled and is a mid-range smartphone positioned below the recently introduced Oppo R15 and R15 Dream Mirror smartphones. The F7 features a hefty 25-megapixel front camera and uses a widescreen notched display.
The screen size of the Oppo F7 is somewhat remarkable with a diagonal of 6.23 inches, featuring a Full HD resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. Unlike the more expensive R15 smartphones, the F7 uses an LCD display instead of OLED. The aspect ratio is 19:9 and a notch at the top includes the necessary sensors and the front camera.
Oppo is heavily marketing the front camera of the device and wants to appeal to an audience who regularly takes selfies. The smartphone features a “Selfie Expert” software mode bringing a number of enhancements. Oppo is using AI technology to recognize whether the person is male or female and will adjust the result of the picture accordingly.
In terms of camera specifications, the selfie camera features a 25-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/2.0. It’s also possible to unlock your phone via facial unlock. Oppo states that 128 separate recognition points are being used and that you can’t close your eyes to unlock the phone.
A MediaTek P60 system-on-a-chip provides the necessary horsepower. It features eight CPU cores with a clock speed of 2.0 GHz and a 3,400 mAH battery. There will be two available models of the Oppo F7: one with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage and a more expensive model with 6 gigabytes of internal memory and 128 GB of storage. The latter is expandable via a MicroSD card.
Notably, the phone also comes with Augmented Reality stickers and the battery doesn’t offer support for VOOC quick charging. The Oppo F7 runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with Oppo’s own ColorOS 5.0 user interface.
Oppo will release the phone in India at first this April, and prices start at $338 for the 4 GB/64 GB model up to $416 for the larger capacity F7 with six gigabytes of RAM. Available colors are Solar Red, Moonlight Silver, and Diamond Black, although Moonlight Silver is exclusive to the 64 GB model.
