Oppo has unveiled a new smartphone, the gorgeous looking Neo 7. The new smartphone was unveiled yesterday and comes with a beautiful design, a feast for your eyes. The phone comes with a hardened glass back cover designed with individual cut glass section and having different reflective tendencies, crafting using special embossing techniques.
The circular curved arcs of the metallic frame of Oppo Neo 7 adds to the style and look with Grey and Gold edges. The smartphone will be available in ivory white or the midnight blue colors.The smartphone has a thickness of 7.55 mm and weighs 141 grams.
Earlier this year Oppo launched the budget smartphone Oppo Neo 5 in the Indian market priced at Rs. 9,999. Oppo has been launching new smartphones but not been able to capture the buyer’s imagination with deeply discounted prices or flash sales in the Indian market.
Lenovo, Motorola, Xiaomi, and Micromax has been able to do that flawlessly for last 1 year. Oppo has been missing the party but maybe they are focused on creating a bit better build quality products and not compromising on the price.
The Oppo Neo 7 comes with 5-inch screen size and offers a display resolution of 960*540 pixels, which is a bit low these days considering most budget smartphones are now coming with HD display.
Powering the device is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 Processor with a clock speed of 1.2 GH. The processor is accompanied by the Adreno 306 GPU which is excellent for gaming.
The Oppo Neo 7 comes with 1 GB of Ram and has an inbuilt storage of 16 GB which is quite generous. The smartphone also comes with a dedicated slot for a micro – sd card which can store up to 128 GB of data.
The Oppo Neo 7 stand out regarding the camera, the rear camera is an 8-megapixel shooter and comes with Ultra HD feature. UltraHD shoots six photos consecutively and combines the best parts of each to a 24-megapixel ultra-high-definition image, which has four times the clarity of ordinary pictures as per OPPO. We can say it is not as good as Oppo says but definitely better than some cheap 8 and 13 MP camera smartphones.
The smartphone is a delight for buyers looking for selfie smartphone with 5 Megapixel front camera which comes with a screen flash as we have seen on the iPhone 6s. The smartphone also comes with the Beautify 3.0 software to enhance the selfies and add 11 different color filters. In a nutshell, Oppo Neo 7 do well in the camera department much like its predecessors.
Oppo Neo 7 runs on the Android Lollipop 5.1, yet no word whether the smartphone will get the latest marshmallow update from Android or not. The Android Lollipop on the Neo 7 runs along the in-house Color OS 2.1 which was launched almost a year back.
The Color OS 2.1 comes with some handy features like the quick scan and clean, home screen management and lock screen notification personalization.
The smartphone has a decent Li-polymer nonremovable battery with 2420 mAH capacity, more than enough to last all day with modest to high usage. The smartphone is a dual sim device with support for high-speed 4G data along with the native support for 3G and 2G technologies.
Moreover, it will be available in 3 different models; one will be for the US, 2nd model is India specific, and a third international model.
The exclusive Indian model shows that Oppo has a strong commitment to the Indian mobile market, which is expanding exponentially.
Oppo has not yet shared the price or availability details for the Oppo Neo 7, which will come out in another week or so.
