Oppo A7 is the new addition to the Chinese smartphone company’s mid-range lineup and while the Oppo A7 comes with some of the benchmark features, Oppo has decided to silently launch the smartphone. For the unknown, the Oppo A7 was earlier spotted in various reports as well as leaks and we already knew the kind of package it will offer. The biggest highlight of the Oppo A7 smartphone is its new design theme for the rear panel which seems to have a metallic finish but with some matt-like inserts. In technical terms, it is being called as a 3D back pattern.
Moreover, the Oppo A7 comes with a waterdrop display design which consists of a small notch at the top that houses the front camera sensor and it seems that Oppo is making this a standard feature in all its smartphones at this price range. Moreover, the premium quotient is also visible in the Oppo A7 and the smartphone will look enticing to others in your hands.
The Oppo A7 is more of a camera-centric smartphone rather than a performance beast since it comes with the lower-end Snapdragon 450 SoC, however, the device makes up for it in the camera department with a 16-megapixel selfie-camera which comes backed by AI features and a host of beautification features.
Moreover, due to the 88.3 per cent screen to body ratio, the Oppo A7 will also be good for an extended as well as immersive experience while gaming or watching high-quality videos. All this is backed by a 4230mAh battery which can easily offer a full day worth of juice on heavy usage after a full charge.
