Oppo's Android smartphone models are wildly popular in the Chinese market, but we haven't yet seen anything spectacular from the handset maker.
Oppo needs a hit if the smartphone division is to survive. So what's the best strategy for this Chinese smartphone maker?
Instead of rolling out the successor to the Find 7, we might get to see a sequel of the R5. Oppo has so far kept quiet on when the next-generation smartphone will be unveiled, but it seems that we're closer to the release date.
The most highly anticipated the successor to the Oppo R5, which unsurprisingly is expected to be called the R7. The handset in question, Oppo R7, is expected of the slimmest side bezels on a mobile device.
The alleged phone leaked out later last week with a slew of photos showing the Oppo R7 in full glory. According to some media reports, the phone will feature a screen with no bezels. It adds more credibility to the speculation that Oppo might come up with the first smartphone onto the market with a bezel-free display.
Well, little is known about the specs but reports suggest R7 will be powered by an octa-core MediaTek processor and support 4G LTE networks. The device is also expected to offer a 20.7-megapixel rear-facing shooter.
The R5 was a big step forward for Oppo in terms of design. Now the question remains whether the upcoming Oppo R7 will be enough to convince users buy an Oppo-made handset. Only time will tell!
