Over the weekend, Oppo listed its R7 Plus handset on its online store. It’s up for pre-order in the United States for $499 USD.
The handset is expected to be available by the end of September. That’s when pre-order shipments will go out. The handset features mostly mid-range specifications such as a 6-inch Full-HD display powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset and 3GB of RAM. It will include a 13MP rear-facing camera in addition to an 8MP front-facing snapper for selfies and video chats. The handset will also include an all-new fingerprint scanner built in as well as a 4,100mAh non-removable battery that hopes to last for more than a day on a single charge. It should be noted that the handset doesn’t include US LTE bands.
The Oppo R7 Plus has Android 5.1 Lollipop pre-installed with the company’s signature ColorOS 2.1 on top of it. At the moment, only a gold color option is available for the handset but hopefully we’ll see more make their way in the future.
It might be worth checking out other competitors prior to purchasing the handset although right now buyers will get a Bluetooth headset alongside their purchase.
